President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski falsely claimed that James Comey was responsible for failing to protect Americans during the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013.
At the time, Comey was a private citizen and serving on the board of HSBC Holdings. Comey was not appointed FBI director by President Obama until September 2013.
Despite the facts, Lewandowski rewrote history on Fox News in an effort to smear Comey for his new book about Trump:
This is the same Jim Comey who I think was in charge of the Boston bombing at the time where we had a terrorist attack in Boston. This is man who failed time and time and time again, when he was the head of the FBI, to protect American citizens and now he wants to say that the President of the United States, a duly-elected president, is a mob boss? Look, Jim Comey has no credibility and he lost his credibility when lied under oath before Congress.
