Former FBI Director James Comey said that he can understand why President Trump thinks Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is a “witch hunt,” during an interview on Thursday.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Comey to put himself in Trump’s shoes and whether he would think Mueller’s investigation is unfair and politized, given everything that is now known about FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s conduct.

Strzok was the top FBI agent working on Mueller’s probe but was fired by Mueller after it was revealed that Strzok had harshly criticized Trump in text messages with a colleague.

Before working on the Mueller probe, Strzok led the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

“Sure, I get why he would be very concerned about that,” Comey said. “It’s poor judgment, and it shouldn’t happen, and I get the concern about it.”
