    Former FBI Director James Comey criticized Attorney General William Barr in a Washington Post op-ed on Monday, saying he "needs to stop acting like a Trump spokesperson."

    Comey called on Barr to provide "an acknowledgement of the truth" and admit he was wrong in the aftermath of Inspector General Michael Horowitz's released report on the FBI's investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia.


    "Well, the wait is over, and those who smeared the FBI are due for an accounting," Comey wrote. "In particular, Attorney General William P. Barr owes the institution he leads, and the American people, an acknowledgment of the truth."

    "As the leader of an institution that is supposed to be devoted to truth, Barr needs to stop acting like a Trump spokesperson," he wrote.

    The former FBI director said the report that found no political motive for launching the investigation told the truth.

    He said the bureau surveilled Trump campaign adviser Carter Page after approval and renewal from federal judges and after learning that another adviser George Papadopoulos worked to receive emails damaging to opponent Hillary Clinton. Comey added that nothing was released to avoid affecting Trump's campaign.

    According to the report, Comey is either criminally incompetent, or an outright crook...He should be keeping his big fat mouth shut.

    He was in charge of the agency....Like I said, either toweringly incompetent or willfully criminally involved.

    He should take Comey’s advice and try to salvage what little credibility he has left.
