Former US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey today threatened President Trump’s “lie” and undermined the rule of law, urging the Republican Party to oppose.
In the Senate, Komi told reporters: “The president and his aides have been lying, causing the reputation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to be hit hard. There are a lot of people who believe in the nonsense.”
“People who understand things, including Republican members of this organization, must show courage and stand up to tell the truth.”
When talking about Komi, Trump said in a tweet yesterday: “The FBI did something completely unimaginable and unheard of until the witch-hunting operation was illegal. They broke into the office of a lawyer!”
Agence France-Presse reported that Komi said that when Trump made a false statement, politicians must stop silent, especially Republicans.
“Republicans have been able to understand the president’s behavior in the past, and the rule of law and truth are also important. Where are the Republicans going today?”
He said that at some point in time, some people must stand up, face all kinds of fears, defend the values of this country, should not choose to retire, but stand up to tell the truth.
Reuters reported that Komi told reporters after the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight Committee closed their doors for more than five hours: “The US president has lied to the FBI, attacking the FBI and attacking the rule of law in the country. Is this a reasonable act?” ?”
Asked about Trump’s former private lawyer Michael Cohen as a “traitor,” Komi said, which undermined the rule of law.
When Trump was fired in May 2017, FBI Director Ke Mi, Komi led the FBI to investigate Russia’s intervention in the 2016 US election and whether to collude with the Trump camp.
