Now emails have been uncovered that show Comey had more or less top-level access to the FBI, and special counsel Robert Mueller, even after he was fired by the president.

“These documents show that James Comey, who was fired by the president, nevertheless had easy, friendly access to the FBI as he prepped his infamous anti-Trump testimony to the Senate,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This collusion led to Comey’s attacking President Trump and misusing FBI records as part of a vendetta against the president.” (Read more from “Fired Comey Coordinated with Fbi on Anti-Trump Testimony” HERE)
