Trump’s response to the Times report was to call FBI leaders “corrupt” and Comey a “sleaze.”
Sanders has an opinion about that. “When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing,” she tweeted in 2016 from her personal account.
She wasn’t referring then to Trump. Sanders, who was a senior aide in the Trump campaign at the time, was slamming presidential rival Hillary Clinton, whose missing emails were being investigated by the FBI. Sanders didn’t offer evidence that Clinton disparaged FBI agents or called them names.
Twitter loved it.
