Former FBI Director James Comey continued to prove why he no longer has a job, by claiming Sunday that “FBI families will spend Christmas without a paycheck.”
He then attacked President Donald Trump over the border wall and sent “thoughts” to public servants.
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 is, of course, absolutely wrong about the state of pay for FBI agents, as attorney and Federalist contributor Gabriel Malo pointed out.
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.
It's the paychecks *after* that, starting with Pay Period 1, that are stopped. https://t.co/RT1wroDWWr
