Fired FBI Director James Comey praised Dan Coats following his resignation as Director of National Intelligence on Sunday.

Early Sunday afternoon President Trump officially announced he nominated Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) to replace Dan Coats.

Coats will be leaving his post on August 15; the president will be announcing the acting DNI chief shortly.

Comey praised Coats because he constantly spread the Russian interference hoax and caused a bottleneck for Durham in his investigation into Spygate.

Coats was basically ‘Clapper 2.0.’

“Thank you, Dan Coats, for serving our nation so well and for continuing the proud tradition of Directors of National Intelligence loyal only to the truth. Hopefully you won’t be the last,” Comey said in a tweet Sunday night.
