Comey: House Intel probe into Russia's election meddling is a 'wreck'

Former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyCountering the ongoing Republican delusion How Biden should sell his infrastructure bill 'Finally, infrastructure week!': White House celebrates T bill MORE on Sunday slammed the House Intelligence Committee's probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, referring to the panel as a "wreck." 

"It wrecked the committee," Comey told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press," referring to the politicization of the panel. 


"It damaged relationships with the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court, the intelligence communities. It's just a wreck," he continued. 

The committee on Friday released a Republican-authored report that said it found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. 

The former FBI director pushed back on the report on Sunday, calling it politically motivated. 

"That is not my understanding of what the facts were before I left the FBI, and I think the most important piece of work is the one the special counsel's doing now. This strikes me as a political document," Comey said. 

Comey is currently promoting his memoir, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership."
