Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy ripped former FBI Director James Comey after a Department of Justice watchdog found that the former director violated FBI policy.
The Inspector General’s report released Thursday found that Comeymishandled seven memos he wrote in early 2017 detailing conversations he had with President Donald Trump.
“Sandra, power does not change you, it unmasks you,” Kennedy told Fox News’ host Sandra Smith. “I believed for a long time and this report confirms it, Mr. Comey is a meat head. He is a political hack. He hurt the F.B.I. badly.”
Since his firing four months into the Trump Administration, Comey has emerged as a harsh critic of the president, frequently attacking him on Twitter and donating money to his political opponents.
In true Comey fashion, he believes the report vindicates him and is now asking for an apology.
