In the wake of Trump's firing of the former FBI director for what Trump called "not doing a good job," conflicting public messages have come out in favor of and against James Comey.
Testimony by acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe (who was until 3 days ago deputy director) in front of Senate Intelligence Committee members included his defending Comey as a man of integrity who has broad support in the FBI to this day. Others also came out in defence of Comey's reputation in the face of White House allegations.
On Facebook at least a dozen FBI agents changed their profile photos of or including James Comey. a gesture usually reserved for slain colleagues.
