This is nothing like what we heard at the White House press briefing this week.
President Obama appears to have thrown James Comey under the bus after promising he wouldn’t be “meddling” in the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“Well, you know, I’ve made a very deliberate effort to make sure that I don’t look like I’m meddling in what are supposed to be independent processes for making these assessments,” the president told NowThis News in an interview published Wednesday marking his first public comments since Comey announced a new review of information connected to Clinton.

.@CNN reporting that President Obama says Comey is guilty of innuendo and releasing incomplete information…and criticizes leaks from FBI.

“I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don’t operate on innuendo,” Obama said, just days after the White House said he would defend Comey’s integrity.
So much for the White House remaining “neutral”. https://t.co/AmG1hv0MZv

I’m old enough to remember when the White House defended Comey’s integrity.

With Election Day looming, the president is now singing a different tune in a complete lack of self-awareness.
The same Obama who declared before the FBI investigation concluded that Clinton emails didnt harm national security? https://t.co/R2mqcfzKcZ

@stephenfhayes The same Obama who said the exact opposite of what he’s saying today, two days ago.

@stephenfhayes The same Obama that said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor?

@thehill We do however, break open sealed divorce records and get Harry Reid to make up lies about my opponents. Oh, and use the IRS.

Twitter users were also happy to educate Obama on the correct meaning of the word “innuendo.”
Did the president mention that the complete information was destroyed by Hillary Clinton? https://t.co/NSQ0fkaoEw
