Former FBI Director James Comey admitted at a CNN town hall that the text messages between former FBI Agent Peter Strzok and former bureau attorney Lisa Page made the entire agency look bad. It damaged the institution and it tarnished the Russia investigation.

“I think, given the standards that we have,” said Comey, “there should have been, and was, severe discipline around their behavior.”



“Everyone has opinions,” said Comey. “You can’t bring them to work and have them affect your work, there have to be severe consequences.”
