Former FBI Director James Comey told MSNBC on Tuesday that Democrats have the right to go after Attorney General William Barr if they feel it’s needed during Wednesday’s televised hearings with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“I heard from a source today, familiar with Attorney General Barr’s thinking, that is nervous about being attacked tomorrow. What sort of exposure does Attorney general Barr have?” MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace asked.
“I don’t think he will be attacked by the witness or witnesses,” Comey replied.
“He may be attacked by Democrats, fairly in my view, for misrepresenting what was in Director Mueller’s report and how he has handled the entire thing and slimed the FBI since,” he explained.
“Frankly, I hope there is not a lot of that. This is a chance for the American people to learn more about what the special counsel found and the fewer attacks and more questions the better served the American people will be,” Comey said.
