Former FBI director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week and revealed some surprises about his time with the Trump administration. Bill O’Reilly, formerly of Fox News, joined Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” to share his take on the two most important pieces of news from last Thursday's hearing.
O’Reilly was shocked at the news that Comey himself was behind the New York Times story about the former FBI director’s memo detailing conversations with Trump. Comey said in the hearing that he asked a “close friend” to be the source for the memo saying Trump pressed Comey to drop an investigation into White House adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.
“It just destroyed any sense of nobility that he might have had,” O’Reilly said, characterizing Comey’s decision as a political play to take down Trump.
O’Reilly also pointed to how Comey called Trump a liar in the hearing. Comey said the president was a liar because he was truly insulted after Trump said the FBI was in “chaos” and mismanaged, O’Reilly asserted.
