Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida had some choice words for James Comey during an appearance on FOX News this weekend. Comey was not forthcoming with much information during a hearing last week and didn’t seem to remember much.

Rep. Gaetz Blasts Comey’s ‘Selective Amnesia’: ‘Pretty Inconceivable to Me’
Rep. Matt Gaetz blasted James Comey for having “selective amnesia” during his closed-door testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
The former FBI director spent six hours Friday testifying before lawmakers on a range of topics, including his handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, the genesis of the Russia investigation and alleged bias at the bureau.
On “The Story” Friday, Gaetz (R-Fla.) said he was particularly interested in Comey’s responses to questions about his June 2017 conversation with President Trump, in which Comey believes Trump may have obstructed justice by referencing the Michael Flynn investigation.
“As soon as Comey’s done with the president, he prepares a memo and then meets with his senior team at the FBI. He couldn’t tell us who was in the room, who was out of the room,” Gaetz said, adding that Comey also did not share what senior officials like Andrew McCabe or Bill Priestap thought of the possible obstruction…
Gaetz said it’s also “pretty inconceivable” that Comey claimed he was unaware that then-FBI General Counsel James Baker was ever in possession of the infamous anti-Trump dossier.
“The director of the FBI somehow knows nothing about it. Another case of selective amnesia.”

History has already proved that Trump was right to fire Comey. He is just awful.
