Former FBI Director James Comey posted one of his rare statements on Twitter Friday afternoon, in response to the latest move by President Trump to dig deeper into the investigators who investigated his campaign.

While Democrats have been blasting out subpoenas, demanding more testimony from Trump officials and documents on the president’s personal taxes and bank records, Attorney General William Barr has launched an investigation of his own, determined to get to the bottom of the basis for the surveillance of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign by the Obama administration.

President Trump announced Thursday evening that he had given Barr full and complete authority to declassify information related to the probe, and ordered all U.S. intelligence officials to cooperate with Barr’s investigation.

Comey fired back on Friday with the following statement:

Investigate whatever you wish about 2016 but don’t forget the people of the FBI must investigate and stop Russian efforts in the 2020 election. What impact will loose talk about “spying” and disgraceful talk about “treason” have on FBI agents and analysts?

Show your support for President Trump!

    We will investigate. Comey is acting like it doesn’t bother him, but he should be nervous.

    That’s all you got, Comey? You had better be concerned for your own actions and the impact the truth will have on YOUR future.

    I don’t know Jamey boy, what impact do you think spying and treason will have on FBI agents and analysts? It’s not loose talk and disgraceful talk if it’s true.

    Comey and every other Director of the FBI has always been bent. Comey has acknowledged breaking the law, he had to post on Twitter, even the NYT no longer accepts him as a credible anonymous source.

    I can answer Comey’s last question: it will have Zero affect because the traitorous hacks that was damaging the FBI/CIA are not gone, awaiting charges, trial, and sentencing/jail time!!!!

    Comey is a narcissist and truly believes he did nothing wrong, just like his buddy and pal Hillary. Two peas in a pod. Can you imagine the look on his face when they handcuff him and haul his sorry arse to jail?

    Comey you lied to the FISA judges knowing full well the info submitted had not been vetted. CRIME!! You leaked confidential documents to your buddy so he could give to the press. CRIME!! FBI agents were embarrassed by their director. You should be ashamed of yourself. An apology should be given to all of the hard worked agents that have dedicated their lives to being honest and above board. How can you even keep a straight face? Run and hide!!

    The whole thing smells. Why would the FBI start an investigation without probable cause. Information from a former foreign agent who got his information from Russians and an informer who had been fired by the FBI for being unreliable and was a tool of the opposition party hardly qualifies as sufficient evidence to begin a legitimate investigation. They used Carter Page as an entry door on a fishing expedition to see what they could turn up.
    They found Trump people who were committing other crimes- nothing to do with Trump. Trump being an amateur politician and someone not used to the devious DC atmosphere blabbered things, which if they had been done secretly, probably would have been considered “obstruction” but he did them all right in the public arena and loudly. In reality he never took any action to impede Mueller and his democrat gang in their frantic search for something they could pin on the President.
    If Trump is guilty of anything, he is guilty of not understanding what a sneaky bunch of backstabbing people we have in DC. He is used to the real world where people want to build and solve problems.

      The better question is why is obstruction even talked about since there was nothing there, and Mueller knew about that the day he started the ‘investigation’ into Russian collusion.

    And another pot calling the kettle black. How humorous. I just pray that they are truly held accountble for all the misdeeds, outright lies, corruption, and angst and impedment they have cause our President. His patience has been unbelievable.

    Mr. Comey, you have the right to remain silent, I would suggest you do so.
    It is almost like he knows that he is protected and records of him have been destroyed, you have to wonder why he is still speaking out.
