[Ed. – Little by little, Democrats will need to come to terms with the reality that they were wrong at almost every turn in their reading and handling of the two-year-long nothingburger they inflicted on the nation.]
Reporting done previously by The Daily Caller confirmed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ claim that some FBI agents were indeed unhappy with former FBI Director James Comey’s leadership.
The Caller reported in October 2016 that FBI agents lost confidence in Comey after seeing how the bureau handled the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. But since the release of the Mueller report, media outlets have pounced on Sanders for saying that FBI agents had issues with Comey.
USA Today reported Thursday the Mueller report notes that Sanders told reporters on May 10, 2017, that Comey had been terminated from his post because he had lost the confidence of President Donald Trump, the Department of Justice and members of both parties in Congress.
“Most importantly, the rank-and-file of the FBI had lost confidence in Comey,” she said at the time. She went on to later say, “We’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things.”
