Comey Caught Lying To Embarrass Trump Ends Up Embarrassing Himself

On Sunday, in his fervor to attack President Donald Trump, Comey shared fake news about FBI agents not getting paid during the government shutdown.

“FBI families will spend Christmas without a paycheck. This president promised Mexico would pay for the wall but innocent people are now paying the price for another lie. Our thoughts are with hardworking public servants and their families,” he wrote.

Well, that was determined to be a lie!


He was corrected by Gabriel Malor, a writer for The Washington Examiner.

“Per OMB guidance, checks for Pay Period 26 (December 9-22) will be processed as usual. Which means federal employees will get their normal direct deposit between December 28 and January 3.

“It’s the paychecks *after* that, starting with Pay Period 1, that are stopped,” he said.

“This, of course, makes perfect sense if you think about it for just two seconds. The money for December 9-21 salaries was appropriated and obligated. So those payments can be sent as part of normal shutdown operations.
“It’s the pay period after that where there is no money,” he wrote.

“It’s like Democrats have suddenly forgotten how payroll works. You get paid for that LAST pay period’s work, folks,” he said.

“And you don’t have to take my word for it, you can go look at OMB’s shutdown guidance for yourself,” he said and added a link to explain it.

“Per that guidance, the critical date when it comes to federal employee paychecks will be January 11. That’s when the payments for Pay Period 1 (Dec. 23-Jan. 5) would ordinarily have been delivered by direct deposit,” he said.
