Former FBI Director James Comey -- fired last spring by President Donald Trump -- responded to Trump's Saturday tweet implying Comey was corrupt by saying the American people soon will have the chance to determine for themselves "who is honorable and who is not".
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced late Friday that he fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe effective immediately — barely 48 hours before his retirement benefits would have set in after 21 years of service with the FBI.
It appears that Comey's tweet was in reference to his memoir, A Higher Loyalty, which is expected to be published in April.
Comey was fired by Trump last May. The president initially cited Comey's handling of the probe into Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's emails. He later told NBC's Lester Holt that he was thinking of "this Russia thing."
