The recently ‘fired’ Director of the FBI took some time from his busy schedule on Monday to praise the recently ‘removed’ Deputy Director of the FBI, saying the bureau’s number two man “stood tall over the last 8 months” in the face of President Trump’s relentless attacks.

James Comey posted his consolation letter to outgoing Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on social media, blasting “small people” in the White House for attempting to “tear down an institution we all depend upon.”

“Special Agent Andrew McCabe stood tall over the last 8 months, when small people were trying to tear down an institution we all depend on. He served with distinction for two decades. I wish Andy well. I also wish continued strength for the rest of the FBI. America needs you,” Comey tweeted.

The former FBI boss routinely attacks President Trump and senior aides on twitter, months after he was removed for his botched investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

James Comey was fired in May 2017 after months of controversies and scandals during the 2016 presidential election.
