James Comey Says ‘Fox & Friends’ Cancelled On Him After IG Report Cleared FBI

Former FBI Director James Comey said Monday that he was booked to appear on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning but that they cancelled on him after the Inspector General’s report came out.

Comey first said that he was booked on Fox’s flagship morning show during an interview with Nicole Wallace on MSNBC. He said “I offered to go on ‘Fox & Friends’, which I gather is a very important program for supporters of the president and they agreed last night to book me at 8:00 tomorrow.”

He added, “I figured I can’t change the minds of Fox viewers about President Trump but I can change their minds, I hope, about the FBI by giving them actual facts. Then after the report came out, they cancelled my appearance. They must have read the report.”

Here’s the clip, Comey’s comments come at the 2:30 mark:

In a tweet on Monday, Comey also said that the Fox show cancelled on him. He said that he “hoped to give them actual facts about the FBI.”

Fox News told reporter Jeremy Barr of The Hollywood Reporter that Comey was never booked on the show.

Comey has been a regular villain for Fox News anchors, especially late night host Sean Hannity, who has aired some flimsy claims on his show, specifically that Comey leaked classified information. Part of that attention is undoubtedly due to Comey’s decision to remain in the conversation and even write a book about his tenure in the FBI and dealings with Donald Trump.

But the Inspector General report released on Monday found that the FBI’s probe of certain figures within the Trump campaign was justified. The report also noted that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was under investigation for money laundering before he even joined Trump’s campaign — Trump has insisted that his campaign was the subject of a politically motivated espionage campaign.

You really think highly of yourself. “Trump supporters” don’t care if you understand their logic. And yes I do attempt to read and listen to liberal sites but never for confirmation. But it just gives me a headache. Perhaps Paul, like you, wants to convince himself that he’s going to change a mind. Nothing happening yet!

William Conley, On what page of the Horowitz report did you find that “in fact it proved that they were very much so were biased and framed Carter page when he was actually working for the US to prevent Russian interference”?

Cherl, You just gave away YOUR OWN game. WHY else would you reply to Paul “you’re here looking for confirmation of your craziness “? I welcome your explanation that it is logical to you that Paul would come to a site to read posts from a field of 99% Trump devotees for confirmation of his beliefs you deem as craziness? Can you name more than 5 IJR posters that are not avid Trump supporters? DO you visit liberal sites for confirmation of YOUR beliefs? I have repeatedly attempted to UNDERSTAND the logic of Trump supporters as to WHY they believe… Read more »

>Paul< You can go elsewhere if you’re looking for confirmation of your craziness. On the other hand making you sick seems to work too. Reading your posts indicates that you might need counseling. Obviously his voters DO care about America. Sure is an improvement over what we had. Or for the cast of characters trying to out spend each other for a nomination

All of you tRUMP kissers make me sick. Don’t any of you care about America? Or just want to hang onto a lying, racist, possibly deranged man, whose only qualifications to be the leader of the free world was being a 2-bit host of a 2-bit non-reality show. Then, again, reading your postings, my questions are sadly answered.

One issue with this usual biased left leaning IJR “reporting” the report didn’t show the FBI isn’t biased at all. In fact it proved that they very much so were biased and framed Carter page when he was actually working for the US to prevent Russian interference.

Hey Alex Thomas, why did you bury the quote from Fox News to Jerry Barr of Hollywood Reporter that Comey was NEVER booked on the show? That!!! should have been your lead sentence. Comey lies….again! There that sounds better.
