It’s not often that we see conservative pundits agreeing with liberal CNN hosts, but this past week has made for some strange bedfellows, no?

First, the Federalist’s Bre Payton appeared on Fox News’ Fox & Friends where she argued that Comey was a “spineless weasel” who “has a history of manipulating the media.” It was some harsh, but accurate commentary.

It’s very clear that Comey has a history of manipulating the media in order to cover his own tail. He admitted under oath yesterday that he leaked the memo to his friend who then leaked it to The New York Times and then The New York Times ran with the story without actually seeing the memo in order to get a special prosecutor.

I think it’s also very startling that the Senate Intelligence Committee itself has not actually seen the memos either. That was revealed during the line of questioning. So, as a reporter watching Comey talk about this, my inclination is to say, man, I’m never going to trust what this guy has to say. So, I think it’s very shocking to see a narrative come out painting him as a boy scout who is on this quixotic quest for truth and justice because I think it is very clear that he is a spineless weasel who has a history of manipulating the media to cover his own tail.

Over at CNN, host John Berman echoed that commentary while using some “kinder” words.

“Obviously he proved he is an adept creature of Washington. He knows how to use the press, he knows how to use documents to get what he wants.”
