Former FBI Director James Comey said Monday that “Fox & Friends” canceled his scheduled appearance on the show in wake of the release of a watchdog report that concluded FBI agents were not motivated by political bias when launching probes into associates of President Trump amid the 2016 campaign.
Comey said on Twitter that he had offered to appear on the morning program to answer all of the hosts questions related to the highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report.
“They booked me for tomorrow at 8 am. They just cancelled. Must have read the report,” said Comey, who was fired by President Trump in 2017.
A Fox News spokesperson denied Comey’s allegation, saying in a statement to The Hill that he “was not booked and was never confirmed to appear on Fox & Friends.”
Network hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum also quickly replied to Comey’s tweet by noting that they would “love” to have the former FBI director on his show.
