On sunday, the Former FBI Director James Comey appeared on “Fox News” with host Chris Wallace, admitting that the recently released DOJ Inspector General’s report on the launch of the FBI’s Russia investigation and their use of the surveillance process showed that he was “wrong” to say the FISA process was “followed” when he defended his former agency.
Comey’s Sunday comments followed DOJ Inspector General’s report that three separate teams made errors in the FISA application process that started the investigation into four members of the Trump campaign. “He’s right, I was wrong,” Comey said of the FBI’s use of the FISA process.
“That’s why I’m telling you I was wrong, I was overconfident as director in our procedures … which was not acceptable,” Comey said on Fox News Sunday.

President Trump responded to Comey’s interview with Chris Wallace, accusing the fired FBI Director of only admitting to being “wrong” because he got “caught red handed.”
TRUMPS TWEET: “So now Comey’s admitting he was wrong. Wow, but he’s only doing so because he got caught red handed. He was actually caught a long time ago. So what are the consequences for his unlawful conduct. Could it be years in jail? Where are the apologies to me and others, Jim?”
