James Comey seems to be having a hard time coping.
The former FBI Director tweeted a rather ambiguous photo hours after the release of the summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that found there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.

“So many questions,” read the caption in the photo of Comey in a forest looking up at tall trees.
The tweet by the former FBI chief, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017 before Mueller was appointed, prompted an ominous response from Sen. Lindsey Graham who tweeted, “Could not agree more.”
Could not agree more.
See you soon. https://t.co/KNGzyDizdq

The South Carolina Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee added, “See you soon.”

Mueller’s highly-anticipated report was delivered to Attorney General William Barr who released a letter on Sunday announcing that the special counsel’s investigation did not find any evidence that Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia in the 2016 election.

Mueller’s office “did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated” with Russians “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign,” according to Barr.
Graham’s tweet implying that he hopes to soon question Comey prompted The Hill to reach out for clarification. The senator’s office reportedly referred the outlet to a letter from Graham to Barr about investigating a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)warrant against former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page.
Democrats have rebutted claims by Republicans that the FBI abused its surveillance powers by obtaining the warrants with faulty evidence, such as the infamous and unverified 2016 dossier by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. The fact that Democrats, in part, paid for the research was not disclosed to the court by the Justice Department.
Comey’s tweet of the forest photo set off a wave of Twitter response with many wondering if he was feeling alright.
He’s done it. The worst tweet in the history of the platform. https://t.co/AqG0quA2l2

Maybe he’s trying to apologize for sending that stupid letter?

Some considered if the tweet was a parody.

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Gregg Gutfeld had questions of their own.
Yes Mr @Comey . Let’s start with why did you sign off on the FISA warrant based on hrc lies in oct 2016. And in January 2017 say it’s “unverified and salacious” ? Did you commit a fraud of the FISA court or lie to the President Elect you hated?
