Comey’s tweet comes after Trump broke with the intelligence agencies who revealed that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. This happened during a press conference he had with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump was asked if he would condemn Russia for election meddling but he replied saying that he doesn’t “see any reason why it would be.”
Since Trump’s comments, there has been a lot of backlash from both sides, including backlash from GOP leaders who usually side with Trump.
