Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer told SiriusXM host Alex Marlow the firing of FBI Director James Comey was a “good thing” on Monday’s Breitbart News Daily.
“What I tell people is, look, think about it this way: think about the next time the FBI director comes out, and there’s an announcement about a major investigation, whether it’s related to the Russian hacking of the election or some other issue,” Schweizer said. “So much of the success of that announcement and the credibility of that decision rests on who the FBI director is.”
“We can all imagine – based on the controversy relating to how he handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation, some of his misstatements on Capitol Hill – any new decision Comey would have come out with would have been fraught with controversy. It would have been immediately challenged by fifty percent of the people in Washington, D.C., depending on what aisle you’re sitting on,” he suggested.
“The point is that going forward, I just don’t think he had the standing or the credibility, because his judgment had been called into question before. I think it had to happen. I think it’s good for law enforcement,” he said.
