James Comey Reveals Secret Twitter Account

Former FBI Director James Comey who re-emerged on the public stage through Twitter on Monday appears at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in June

United States lawyer Benjamin Wittes, a close friend of Mr Comey, then cleared up any remaining confusion and confirmed in a tweet that the account did belong to him.

The big reveal has launched a new wave of questions as speculation now turns to why Comey is using Iowa as the focal point of his posts.

Comey - who was sacked by President Donald Trump earlier this year amid the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election - has kept a low profile in recent months.

Former FBI Director James Comey has always been rumored to have a secret Twitter account, and this weekend he confirmed it by posting a photo of himself right here in Iowa. "Will try to tweet in useful ways", Comey tweeted Monday.

Former FBI Director James Comey is officially on Twitter. "On the road home".

Comey, who is writing a book, tweeted on Friday that he was happy to be back in the Hawkeye State.

Reinhold Niebuhr was a well-known theologian about whom Comey wrote an undergraduate thesis at the College of William & Mary.

Six weeks earlier, Comey said during the annual Intelligence and National Security Alliance Leadership dinner that had secret Twitter and Instagram accounts.

One could only imagine what Comey might have been tweeting had he been active on Twitter during some of President Trump's most vile attacks toward him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Being outed drew more than 8,000 followers to the account within an hour. In addition to the image he tweeted this morning of himself standing on a rural road in Iowa, longtime friend Benjamin Wittes confirmed that the account is in fact that of Comey's. The meme quotes Burgundy interpreting his dog's barking to say that the dog went to the bathroom in the refrigerator and ate a wheel of cheese, "Actually, I'm not even mad".
