A friend of former FBI Director James Comey's has come to his defense after President Donald Trump accused him of clearing Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing while the investigation was still underway.

Two Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, wrote a letter to the FBI claiming that Comey wrote a draft of "a statement exonerating" Clinton in the investigation of her private email server.

Comey's friend Benjamin Wittes, editor of the blog Lawfare, responded to Trump on Friday in a string of tweets.
