Confidence or no-confidence? What's the real story on how FBI agents felt about Comey?

Today on "The Chris Salcedo Show," Chris Salcedo exposed some instances in the last 24 hours where the mainstream media got a story wrong or incomplete.

Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe testified yesterday before the Senate that the rank and file of the Bureau had not lost confidence in former director James Comey as was stated by Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee.

Later in the hearing, however, Senator Joe Manchin (D - W. Va) asked about the morale of agents who worked under Comey during the Clinton email investigation. McCabe then said "There were folks within our agency who were frustrated with the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case, and some of those folks were very vocal about those concerns." This was not widely reported in the media, and might have been what Huckabee was referring to in her statement.

The Washington Post reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to resign because he was furious that his memo to Attorney General Jeff Sessions was cited as the impetus for firing Comey.

This was later refuted by statements he made to local Washington D.C. news affiliate WJLA, and corroborated by statements made to NBC by persons in the Justice Department.
