In his first television interview since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report, former FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary of Mueller’s nearly two-year long investigation was “misleading.” Comey also blasted Barr’s summary of the lengthy probe as “inadequate.”

“It certainly gave the impression that Bob Mueller had decided that he was not going to rule on this question of obstruction of justice when that’s not what Mueller did. Mueller laid it out and signaled to a future prosecutor after this individual is out of office you ought to take a serious look at charging him,” Comey told “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Comey, whose dramatic firing by President Donald Trump led to Mueller’s appointment as special counsel, said that Mueller was “trying to be principled and fair” in not explicitly advising the Justice Department to charge Mr. Trump with obstruction of justice and instead chose to abide by a long-held ruling that the DOJ does not indict a sitting president.

Comey pushed back on Barr’s belief that the FBI spied by President Trump. “The FBI doesn’t spy, the FBI investigates,” Comey declared. “We investigated a very serious allegation that Americans might be hooked up with the Russian effort to attack our democracy.”
