Comey Fires Back At Trump Over 'Treason' Tweet

James Comey slammed President Trump on Twitter.

Former FBI Director James Comey fired back at President Trump in a tweet on Friday.

"The president claiming the FBI's investigation was 'TREASON' reminds me that a Russian once said, 'A lie told often enough becomes the truth.'

That shouldn't happen in America.

Who will stand up?" Comey tweeted.  Earlier on Friday, Trump called the FBI's early investigations into potential Russian influence in his 2016 campaign "treason."  "My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on," Trump tweeted.

"Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics.

A really bad situation.

TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!"  That accusation closely followed news that Attorney General William Barr has opened an inquiry into the matter. The Wall Street Journal reports: "Barr has tapped the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut to study the origins of a 2016 counterintelligence investigation that conducted what he has called 'spying' on people affiliated with the Trump campaign, a person familiar with the decision said." Trump has long been calling the integrity and intentions of the bureau's leadership into question. "The rank and file of the FBI are great people who are disgusted with what they are learning about Lyin' James Comey and the so-called 'leaders' of the FBI," Trump noted via Twitter in January.

"Twelve have been fired or forced to leave.

They got caught spying on my campaign and then called it an investigation.

Bad!"
