Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley recently appeared on CNN and suggested that a statement made by Andrew McCabe after his firing has caught James Comey in a lie. Furthermore, that the lie was made to Congress while under oath.

Law Prof: McCabe Firing Suggests Comey Lied to Congress While Under Oath (WATCH)
Appearing on CNN Saturday morning with host Michael Smerconish, Turley was asked to opine as to whether any potential criminal penalties could result from the McCabe affair and if so, why.
Smerconish’s guest was more than happy to oblige. After briefly discussing McCabe’s potential liability for allegedly misleading investigators, the liberal law professor shifted gears and started discussing how Comey fits into all of the drama and intrigue.
Turley noted, “This could easily spin further out of control. There was one line in the case statement last night that I immediately flagged. Because he said that he had authority to do this and he conferred with the director—the director at the time was James Comey.” Turley continued:
Now, the problem there is that James Comey said under oath that he never leaked information and never approved a leak. So, if the Inspector General believes this was a leak to the media, it raises serious questions about Comey’s previous testimony and could get him into serious trouble.

The deep state is real. We see more evidence of it every day. Comey should be held accountable.
