EBONI WILLIAMS: I'll say that I still believe in Comey, but you're right, Bill --
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Why?
WILLIAMS: Because I --
O'REILLY: Why would you believe in a man who does that dubious thing by releasing those things on Friday when he hopes no one will see them?
WILLIAMS: I don't like the Friday dump, but I looked at him go in front of the Senate hearing, take the questions and answer them head on. But I think you're important to your point, Bill, that -- a lot of people surrounding Hillary Clinton in this whole fiasco have to question how much of their credibility are they willing to risk, around this --
O'REILLY: Well, Comey has lost all credibility. He's lost all credibility, I mean, when he loses me -- and you lost me, Mr. Comey. I'm gone. Alright?
I don't believe you should be running that agency any longer. Not because of your decision not to indict Hillary Clinton, not because of that, alright? I gave him the benefit of the doubt. But because of that Friday thing. That's pure politics, pure partisan politics, it's not up to FBI standards, and he has besmirched his own agency.
