Comey Gets Called Out For This Lie About the Government Shutdown

Former FBI Director James Comey was called out Sunday for spreading yet another lie…this time about FBI employees not receiving a paycheck over Christmas. 

“FBI families will spend Christmas without a paycheck. This president promised Mexico would pay for the wall but innocent people are now paying the price for another lie. Our thoughts are with hardworking public servants and their families," Comey said in a tweet on Sunday. 

Twitter users were quick to point out, however, that his statement was false. 

“Per OMB guidance, checks for Pay Period 26 (December 9-22) will be processed as usual. Which means federal employees will get their normal direct deposit between December 28 and January 3,” responded one man. “It's the paychecks *after* that, starting with Pay Period 1, that are stopped.”

He continued: “This, of course, makes perfect sense if you think about it for just two seconds. The money for December 9-21 salaries was appropriated and obligated. So those payments can be sent as part of normal shutdown operations. 
 “It's the pay period after that where there is no money.”

“It's like Democrats have suddenly forgotten how payroll works. You get paid for that LAST pay period's work, folks,” he added. 

Another user also called Comey out for his lie. 

“This is a lie. Literally no federal employee will spend Christmas without a paycheck according to OPM.”
