COMEY blasts House Republicans following his testimony: "Someone has to stand up to the fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country & not slink away to retirement. Stand up and speak the truth."
COMEY on Trump's tweet calling Cohen a "rat": "It undermines the rule of law. This is the president of the US calling a witness who is cooperating w/his own DOJ a rat. Say that again to yourself at home and remind yourself where we ended up...we have to stop being numb to it"
COMEY: "Somebody has to stand up and speak for the FBI & the rule of law. I hope there's more somebodies than just me...the FBI's reputation is taking a big hit b/c POTUS has lied about it constantly. A whole lot of people who watch your network [Fox News] believe that nonsense."
REPORTER: Do you see any Republicans who are remaining taking that mantle of defending the FBI & taking on POTUS?

COMEY: "Not yet. To my view, to their everlasting shame. I hope they will overcome and realize they'll have to explain to their grandchildren what they did today"
COMEY on Flynn: "Look at what happened to the Republican Party. They're up here attacking FBI's investigation of a guy that pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. 'He should have been warned you shouldn't have lied.' Think of the state of affairs we've ended up in. It's nonsense."
REPORTER: Do you have confidence in acting attorney general Matt Whitaker?

COMEY: "No comment."
