James Comey: ‘I’ve Succeeded In Pissing Off Everyone’

Scott Morefield | Reporter

Former FBI Director James Comey once considered himself a Republican, but said in a Saturday interview that “most Republicans” don’t talk to him anymore because he has “succeeded in pissing off everyone.”

Comey made the comments during an interview with Katie Couric at the Aspen Ideas Festival in California.

“Most Republicans don’t talk to me anymore,” Comey told Couric. “I’ve succeeded in pissing off everyone.”

The former FBI director added that the recently released Justice Department IG report was “painful” to read, even though he “expected” the criticism.

“It’s painful to read yourself being criticized,” Comey said. “Even though I expected to be criticized.” (RELATED: Comey Throws Obama And Lynch Under The Bus In New Book)

During the extensive interview, Comey expressed his belief that he would eventually be vindicated in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

“Whether you agree with them or not, they were good decisions in the way that they were made and values that guided them,” he said. “I actually think in the long run people will see that.”

“I really hope that in the long sweep of things, it will be clear that we weren’t on anybody’s side,” Comey told Couric.
