Former Bush Official Ari Fleischer Slams MSNBC Analyst
 
MSNBC analyst Barb McQuade drew the ire of former George W. Bush official Ari Fleischer for her characterization of James Comey.

According to The Daily Caller:

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer ripped into MSNBC analyst Barb McQuade for suggesting that James Comey was a modern-day Paul Revere.

McQuade defended the former FBI director in several tweets following the release of the inspector general’s report indicating that he had violated FBI policy, suggesting at first that he was like a man who broke into a house to save someone from a storm.

 

...

Flesicher fired right back, arguing that there was one major flaw in her analogy. “Except Paul Revere was right. The British were coming. James Comey was wrong. There was no collusion. Comey’s vain-glorious leaking put the nation through two years of terrible strife. Comey overreacted, showed poor judgement and broke FBI rules. Comey is no Revere,” Fleischer explained.


Comey responded to the IG report by claiming that even though he had violated FBI policy, since he it had not been proven that he violated the law, his critics owed him an apology.

Even this type of pandering to Comey is something a member of the Bush Administration could not stand for.
