Dem Senator Admits Democrats are Hypocrites on the Issue of Comey’s Firing

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) acknowledged that many Senate Democrats had called for FBI Director James Comey to resign.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) admitted that many Senate Democrats had asked for FBI Director James Comey’s resignation before President Trump fired him during an interview Wednesday.

MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson asked Murphy about comments he had made just days ago that suggested that Murphy wasn’t happy with how Comey handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“So should [Comey] be out as head of the FBI, set aside everything else, did you want to see him gone,” Jackson asked Murphy.

Murphy told Jackson, “It’s absolutely true that Democrats have been very critical of James Comey and many of us did call for his resignation.”
