Former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyBiden to keep Wray as FBI director Comey: 'Republican Party has to be burned to the ground' Juan Williams: The real 'Deep State' is pro-Trump MORE on Sunday blasted President TrumpDonald TrumpMcCarthy says he told Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene he disagreed with her impeachment articles against Biden Biden, Trudeau agree to meet next month Trump planned to oust acting AG to overturn Georgia election results: report MORE for “lying” after Trump tweeted about an FBI raid of his former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

In a tweet shared with a screenshot of Trump’s tweet, Comey also criticized Republicans for not speaking out against the president.

“This is from the President of our country, lying about the lawful execution of a search warrant issued by a federal judge,” Comey tweeted. “Shame on Republicans who don’t speak up at this moment — for the FBI, the rule of law, and the truth.”

Trump tweeted earlier Sunday that the FBI “broke into” Cohen’s office when they seized documents in April from his home, office and hotel room.

"Remember, Michael Cohen only became a 'Rat' after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started,” Trump tweeted. “They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE!"

Cohen was sentenced last week to three years in prison for financial crimes committed while he worked for Trump, including campaign finance law violations that he said he committed at the direction of then-candidate Trump, tied to payments to two women who alleged affairs with Trump.
