Chris Wallace really goes after James Comey over his claims that the IG report exonerated the FBI under his tenure. He especially grills him about whether the flawed Trump dossier was the cornerstone of the evidence used for the FISA surveillance application.
Here’s one part where Wallace makes him face the results of the IG report:

Director Comey responds to previous statements he made in 2018 about the Carter Page FISA warrant being handled appropriately: "There was real sloppiness." pic.twitter.com/vPmCV11hRe— FoxNewsSunday (@FoxNewsSunday) December 15, 2019
Here’s another clip:

Michael Horowitz concludes in his IG report that three separate teams made errors in FISA application process. James Comey responds on FOX News Sunday: "As Director you are responsible for this." #FNS #FoxNews pic.twitter.com/Irt1kb4JjP— FoxNewsSunday (@FoxNewsSunday) December 15, 2019
But the main interview is really really worth watching. Basically Comey tosses the FBI under the bus and says that he didn’t know anything about the investigation, which is a little difficult to believe given just how explosive such an investigation would be. It’s pretty clear he doesn’t want to take an responsibility for the failures under his watch.
