FBI uses Comey quotes in recruitment material

The FBI continues to use quotes from former director James Comey in its recruitment material.

The bureau shared a tweet Saturday promoting a job listing for intelligence analysts, which features a quote from the former director.

“We are a national security and law enforcement agency that uses, collects and shares intelligence in everything we do,” Comey is quoted as saying on the page.

Comey used the description of the FBI in years past, as well as in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this year regarding the federal government’s oversight of the FBI.

Another FBI job application page features a quote from the former FBI director saying in part that “doing good for a living is a different way to lead your life.”

President Trump fired Comey in May, with the president admitting that the federal probe into his campaign associates’ ties to Russia was on his mind when he ousted the FBI chief.

The White House later claimed that the “rank and file” at the FBI had lost faith in Comey, though then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe contradicted that assessment.

McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time that Comey “enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does to this day.”

Comey testified before the panel in June about his relationship with Trump, saying Trump had encouraged him to drop a probe into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
