Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday condemned President Donald Trump's calls for a possible investigation into how special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia inquiry started, adding that it creates a troubling precedent. During an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Comey was asked about whether he feared possible counter investigations: "I don't fear it personally. I fear it as a citizen. Right? Investigate what? Investigate that investigations were conducted? What would be the crime you'd be investigating? So it's a terrible cycle to start." Several days after Attorney General William Barr released his summary of Mueller's report, Trump and his team have called for investigations into how the probe began. "Hopefully, somebody is going to look at the other side," Trump told reporters late last month. The president's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has also made similar statements.
