President Donald Trump shook hands with FBI Director James Comey Sunday afternoon during a reception for law enforcement officials and first responders.
FBI Director James Comey upset Democrats over the email drama that engulfed Democrat Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Trump was giving remarks at an event for first responders when he noticed Comey and called him across the room.
“He’s become more famous than me,” Trump said in a veiled reference to his role in the FBI’s investigation of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Comey came under fire during the presidential election over how the FBI handled the investigation into Clinton’s emails. He sent a letter to Congress about a week before Election Day, saying his agency was reviewing newly discovered emails that were found during an investigation into former Rep. Anthony Weiner.
