Less than a week ago Schiff didn’t express any confidence in Comey’s ability to do the job, citing Comey’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) compared President Trump to Richard Nixon for firing FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. But less than a week ago, Rep. Schiff raised questions about Comey’s performance as FBI Director, citing the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Schiff who serves as the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence called the firing of Comey, “incredibly disturbing,” during an interview on Tuesday.
“It just harkens back, I think, to some of those most tainted actions by President Nixon,” Schiff went on to say.
However, less than a week ago while appearing on MSNBC, Schiff was asked if he had confidence in FBI Director James Comey.
“Well, you know, my answer, as you can gather, is I have serious questions about the judgment that he exercised last year. I have to hope that he’s going to do better with this investigation,” Schiff told MSNBC’s, Chris Hayes.
Schiff went on to tell Hayes, “I do think there are substantial questions that were raised about his handling of these investigations last year, and I have to hope that he’s going to do a better job in the future.”
