James Comey flat out lies about shutdown payroll, gets fact-checked on Twitter

These days it seems that leftists just don’t give a tinker’s damn about truth or facts.  About anything.  Case in point: Former FBI Director James Comey, who took to Twitter with a completely false claim about payroll during the temporary government shutdown.  Comey was brutally fact-checked on Twitter after posting the lie that families of FBI agents would spend Christmas without a paycheck.

“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,” he said.

But, Twitchy said, he was quickly fact-checked.

“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,” one person said in response. “It’s the paychecks *after* that, starting with Pay Period 1, that are stopped.”
