It wasn't long before former FBI Director James Comey chimed in on Friday's news.

“But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream,” wrote Comey on both Twitter and Instagram, quoting the Bible's Book of Amos.

“But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” Amos 5:24

In November, Comey cited that particular verse as his favorite scripture:

Since going public with his Twitter account in early October, Comey has used the platform to subtly and cryptically respond to the president:

President Donald Trump fired Comey in May. In June, Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee, saying President Trump asked him about the investigation into Michael Flynn:

The President then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn, saying, “He is a good guy and has been through a lot.” He repeated that Flynn hadn't done anything wrong on his calls with the Russians, but had misled the Vice President. He then said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” I replied only that “he is a good guy.” (In fact, I had a positive experience dealing with Mike Flynn when he was a colleague as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the beginning of my term at FBI.) I did not say I would “let this go.”

With Flynn agreeing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, it looks like more Comey tweets could be coming soon.
