Former FBI Director James Comey sharply criticized new Trump attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, for comparing the New York FBI to Nazi “stormtroopers.”

In a tweet Wednesday afternoon, Comey said the FBI agents are “just a group of people devoted to the rule of law and the truth.”

“Our country would be better off if our leaders tried to be like them, rather than comparing them to Nazis,” Comey tweeted.

Giuliani made the comparison during an interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity, referring to the raid on the office, hotel room and home of President Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen. Agents were searching for, among others things, records related to Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.

“The settlement payment — which is a very regular thing for lawyers to do — the question there was, the only possible violation there would be was it a campaign finance violation? Which usually results in a fine, by the way, not this big stormtroopers coming in and breaking down his apartment and breaking down his office,” Giuliani told Hannity.
