Lynch stated during testimony that she was surprised that Comey made the claim that she instructed him to call the investigation a "matter" instead of an "investigation".
On “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday, Huckabee reacted to the news that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch accused ex-FBI Director James Comey of mischaracterizing her statements while being under oath.
“She basically called him a liar. That's something that he has been called a lot over the past few months by people who have looked at what he said and how it contradicts other things he said. I think what we're seeing is that this whole issue is now moving from a political theater to a legal theater,” Huckabee said.
“That means the rules are changed. When it was about the political rhetoric people could say whatever they want,” Huckabee continued.
“James Comey could speak politically, he could go on talk shows, promote his book. He could present himself as some big deal who knew a lot and was a little more sanctimonious than pretty much anybody else in the country.”
