Former U.S. Attorney Harry Litman defended the actions of former FBI Director James Comey and said history will judge him as bending the rules, but he was doing a "good thing."
"History will record him rightly as bending the rules when he decided but they'll record him as having -- it's a good thing that he did it here and these memos came to light," Litman told MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace.
It's true that as long as this goes in, if Andrew McCabe gets indicted, Comey might be a witness, Lisa Page might be witness. You have the Department [of Justice] continuing to be riven and in the public eye also it's kind of capital already overextended. Still, it is being dispensed with this fighting on behalf of Trump against the deep against.
Now here, I agree with Paul. Comey, history will record him rightly as bending the rules when he decided but they'll record him as having -- it's a good thing that he did it here and these memos came to light but nevertheless it provokes a whole new round of Trumpian rhetoric that plays well on the campaign rallies and continues to cause crises at the Department of Justice.
