Fmr FBI chief James Comey welcomes New Year with dig at Trump. Let’s just say it didn’t go over well.

James Comey just can’t let it go.

The former FBI director took to Twitter Sunday evening to express a hope for “more ethical leadership in 2018”–a remark widely interpreted as alluding to President Donald Trump.

Many users fired back at Comey’s indirect New Year’s Eve jab at the president.

The president offered his own New Year’ wishes, in which he desired the best even for his “enemies” and “haters”–which could presumably include James Comey.

Since making his Twitter account public, the former FBI director has posted numerous thinly veiled critiques of President Trump.

Comey’s work at the FBI has been heavily scrutinized since the president fired him in May. The bureau has been accused of pro-Clinton, anti-Trump bias under his watch.

Last month it was revealed FBI agent Peter Strzok suggested a change in draft language for Comey’s description of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, updating “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

Strzok was demoted at the FBI and removed from special counsel Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign after the Department of Justice uncovered anti-Trump texts he sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was having an affair.

When it comes to “ethical leadership” and “truth,” Comey may want to remember the saying about glass houses and throwing stones.
