Mike Huckabee says James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week proved that President Donald Trump's "instincts about whom to fire are still right on the money."
"Comey's own testimony cast doubt on his veracity on several occasions," Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate, writes on his website.
"His defenders would have us believe that his note to himself about what Trump said in their private meeting is somehow believable because he claims to have written it down right away. But it's still just 'he said/he said' hearsay."
Huckabee said he could just as easily write down the lyrics of "Sweet Home Alabama,'' the 1974 Top 40 smash by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and "claim it's a transcript of a conversation I had with [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer."
"That doesn't magically turn it into proof. And considering Comey admitted he did it so that he could secretly leak it to the media via a third party and force the appointment of a special prosecutor is manipulation piled on top of dishonesty. Frankly, it taints all his testimony," Huckabee said.
During his testimony, Comey said Trump pressured him in a private conversation to close the Michael Flynn-Russia investigation.
Survey results released Saturday revealed Americans found Comey to be more trustworthy than Trump. In the HuffPost/YouGov poll, 46 percent of those asked said Comey was more honest and trustworthy than the president.
