Comey defends FBI's investigation in response to NYT 'spying' report Former FBI Director James Comey on Friday defended the bureau actions alleged in a New York Times report released a day earlier that says an informant portrayed a research assistant in order to investigate a Trump foreign policy adviser in 2016. In a lengthy interview with a Los Angeles radio station, Charles Feldman mentioned the New York Times report and asked Comey about Trump supporters' reaction to it. “Already some Trump supporters are saying, 'Aha! You see? We are right! The president is right!" Feldman said to Comey.

In remarks prepared for delivery tonight, former deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein calls James Comey "a partisan pundit" and criticizes him for his recent remarks about Rosenstein.

In an op-ed last week in the New York Times, Comey asked how Rosenstein could, after the release of the Mueller report, give a speech quoting President Trump on the rule of law and praise the president in his resignation letter. Comey concluded that Trump "eats your soul in small bites."

In remarks for a speech Monday night to the Greater Baltimore Committee, Rosenstein says Comey is now "a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul. That is disappointing. Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony."

Rod Rosenstein took aim at James Comey Monday, calling him a " partisan pundit " in a speech that included the most public retelling yet of the twists and turns of the Russia investigation by the man who oversaw it.

Fresh out of his job as deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein took aim at former FBI Director James Comey , characterizing him as a “ partisan pundit ”.

Rosenstein also defended the memo he drafted that was cited by Trump in support of Comey's firing. Referring to the former FBI director's handling of the Clinton e-mail investigations final stages, he said, "There are bright lines that should never be crossed."

Repeating many of the points he made in the memo, Rosenstein said, "The clearest mistake was the director's decision to hold a press conference about an open case, reveal his recommendation and discuss details about the investigation, without the consent of the prosecutors and the attorney general. Then he chose to send a letter to the Congress on the eve of the election stating that one of the candidates was under criminal investigation, expecting it to be released immediately to the public. Those actions were not within the range of reasonable decisions."

Rosenstein's last day as deputy attorney general was May 11. The Senate will likely vote on the nomination of Jeffrey Rosen later this week to take over that role.
