Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) wanted James Comey out of the investigation on Trump-Russia ties just last week. Now, he says the firing “compromises” the investigation.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) blasted the White House for firing James Comey on Tuesday, but just last week said that Comey should not be involved in any investigation of alleged Trump-Russia ties.
Blumenthal tweeted on Tuesday night that the firing of Comey “compromises investigation of White House ties to Russians”:
Firing of #Comey compromises investigation of White House ties to Russians – no doubt now special prosecutor is necessary.

Blumenthal clearly caught Trump’s attention. On Wednesday morning, a @realDonaldTrump tweetstorm called out the Connecticut senator for lies about his military service that date back to 2009.
However, Blumenthal’s real hypocrisy on the Comey issue dates back to just last week when he told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that Comey should not be involved in the Trump-Russia investigation (1:29 to 2:16 below):
One of Blumenthal’s few consistencies on the issue has been calling for a special prosecutor.
