Ari Fleischer calls BS on Comey: The guy I know has always been a grandstander, even more so now

Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer joined the symphony of voices bashing James Comey on the release of his new book.

As Comey is set to launch his book tour in support of his tell-all memoir, the former FBI chief has come under fire for his blatant attempt to “cash in on his very public hatred for President Donald Trump,” as Fox News’ Sean Hannity said.

Fleischer, who was the spokesman for President George W. Bush, called out Comey for his hypocrisy in an appearance on Fox News’ “The Angle” on Thursday.

Fleischer asked why Comey would continue to work for someone he described in his book as a “congenital liar and unethical leader, devoid of human emotion and driven by personal ego.”

“If that’s what the head of the FBI thought of the commander in chief, the president, to whom he does report,” Fleischer said. “The honorable thing would have been for James Comey to resign.”

“How can he work for somebody he considers unethical?” Fleischer asked. “And he does work for the president. He is the FBI director, one of the most important and powerful positions in government that answers to the president.

“The James Comey I know has always been a grandstander, is still a grandstander, this book just shows that even more so.”

Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro echoed Fleischer’s thoughts.

President Trump personally fired back at Comey on Friday, leveling a direct hit at the man he called “a proven LEAKER & LIAR.”

Fox News’ legal and political analyst, Gregg Jarrett, as well as Retired FBI agent, James Gagliano, raised serious questions about Comey’s violation of FBI procedure with the release of his book.

“Things will end badly for Comey. He stole government documents,” Jarrett tweeted Thursday, calling the memoir a work of “fiction” and “fantasy.”

Meanwhile, watchdog organization Judicial Watch launched a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Justice in order to find if Comey got “special treatment” in writing his memoir.
