James Comey Responds To Critics Like President Trump In Live Interview

Former FBI director James Comey on Tuesday responded to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's recent broadsides against him, saying that his view of the former U.S. Attorney whose work once inspired him had "changed over time," and Giuliani seemed to feel the same way.

"I guess the love is gone," Comey joked. "I used to be one of his star prosecutors. It appears I'm not anymore."

Comey's comments came during a wide-ranging conversation with reporter Carol Leonnig at a Washington Post Live event. He was responding to a series of comments Giuliani had made on various television appearances, including the assertion that one reason Trump might not agree to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller is that the special counsel is more likely to believe Comey's version of events than President Donald Trump's.

"People do things like lie," Giuliani said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "People lie. Could Comey be lying? You're damn right he could be lying. ... And we're going to walk ourselves into a trap like that?"
