Former CIA and FBI Director William Webster wrote that President Donald Trump calling FBI professionals "scum" was a "slur against people who risk their lives to keep us safe" in a New York Times opinion piece Monday.
The president said FBI Director Christopher Wray would "never be able to fix" the agency following his response to the Inspector General's report released yesterday.
"Make no mistake the FBI working with our state and local law enforcement partners is all over this," Wray said in reference to white supremacist violence.
"The former highest ranking employees in his bureau committed real crimes, and yet no signs that Wray seems to care one bit to bring them to justice, or working to prevent this abuse of power hyperpartisan conduct from ever, ever happening again," Hannity said on Monday.
"It seems that individuals in the Justice Department at the highest levels who seem to state the facts and the law as they exist seem to not do well," said former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Elliot Williams.
"I thought about the Ramsey Rapist every night before I went to bed for five years," the former FBI director said.
The FBI had previously confirmed the existence of the drafted statement.
Speaking at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, Wray also made comments about the Las Vegas mass shooting.
Trump tweeted in July: "Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!"
The favorable recommendation was expected as more than half of committee members had publicly expressed support for Wray.
Twitter users said they could relate to Comey's account of being trapped by a powerful, demanding man.
The website for Columbia Law School professor Daniel Richman says he "is currently an adviser to FBI Director James B. Comey."
The former FBI director will speak about his interactions with Trump, including how the president demanded loyalty and made other requests.
The Senate Intelligence Committee published the former FBI director's opening statement a day before he is scheduled to testify.
The ads, which echo Trump's criticism of the sacked FBI director, come from one of Donald Trump's biggest donors during the election.
Comey is to testify Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating alleged links between Donald Trump's team and Russia.
To fill appointments, Trump keeps turning to the law firm Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman, which has represented him for years.
