James Comey channels FDR in rebuke of Trump's FBI tweets

Former FBI Director James Comey tweeted out a single quote from former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt Saturday in response to tweets from President Trump about Comey's firing and the reports of an investigation into Trump as a possible Russian agent.

"I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made," Comey tweeted, attributing to FDR.

Trump called Comey a "total sleaze" Saturday in a series of tweets where Trump claimed that no other president has been as tough on Russia as he. Trump's statements come after the New York Times reported that Trump was secretly investigated by the FBI following Comey's firing on the suspicion that Trump may have been working for Russia, a counterintelligence investigation that has since been taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller's .

Trump had used the same quote without context in a November 2012 tweet.
