FBI Director James Comey took a brutal grilling by the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday but one thing he took articular offense to stood out.
“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels,” he said. “We are honest people and … whether or not you agree with the result, this was done the way you want it to be done.”
Comey steadfastly maintained his bureau did not “carry water” for one side or the other in its investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
“I knew there were going to be all kinds of rocks thrown, but this organization and the people who did this are honest, independent people. We do not carry water for one side or the other. That’s hard for people to see because so much of our country, we see things through sides,” he said. “We are not on anybody’s side.”
The passionate plea was received mostly as BS and social media began defending the reputation of actual weasels.
But, conservative firebrand Michelle Malkin agreed that Comey and his agency’s investigators shouldn’t be called weasels. She invented her own word for them.

She wasn’t the only one who was not convinced by Comey’s words.
Comey’s “Don’t call us weasels!” sounded startlingly like “I am NOT a crook!”
And I’m even less convinced.#CrookedHillary #HillarysEmails

Comey met his match today! ‘Hillary played you . . . you blew it . . . God help us all.’
Gowdy to Comey: Help me understand, ‘what would Hillary have had to do’ to warrant prosecution?
‘I’m confused and mis-remembering’: Comey cracks under heavy questioning by Ratcliffe.
Comey’s claim that a tech guy wiped emails without ANY direction from anyone is too hard to swallow.
Jason Chaffetz asks the one big question that literally left Comey speechless – then he gets pummeled!
