‘Don’t call us weasels’: Comey’s repeated plea to Congress sparks sympathy for weasels

FBI Director James Comey took a brutal grilling by the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday but one thing he took articular offense to stood out.

“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels,” he said. “We are honest people and … whether or not you agree with the result, this was done the way you want it to be done.”

Comey steadfastly maintained his bureau did not “carry water” for one side or the other in its investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

“I knew there were going to be all kinds of rocks thrown, but this organization and the people who did this are honest, independent people. We do not carry water for one side or the other. That’s hard for people to see because so much of our country, we see things through sides,” he said. “We are not on anybody’s side.”

The passionate plea was received mostly as BS and social media began defending the reputation of actual weasels.

But, conservative firebrand Michelle Malkin agreed that Comey and his agency’s investigators shouldn’t be called weasels. She invented her own word for them.

She wasn’t the only one who was not convinced by Comey’s words.
