CNN host Christiane Amanpour said that Trump supporters chanting “lock her up” is “hate speech” and that the government should ban people from saying it.
While interviewing disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, she asked, “Of course, ‘Lock her up’ was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign. Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, I mean, the people in charge of law and order – had shut down that language? That it was dangerous potentially, that it could have created violence, that it’s kind of hate speech? Should that have been allowed?”
Comey replied, “That’s not a role for government to play. The beauty of this country is, people can say what they want, even if it’s misleading and it’s demagoguery. The people who should have shut it down were Republicans who understand the rule of law and the values that they claim to stand for. Shame on them, but it wasn’t a role for government to play.”
I don’t understand how Comey can set and criticize the Republicans for exercising their freedom of speech while at the same time completely ignore Democrats who make wild Russian collusion claims, perpetuation fake hate hoaxers like Jussie Smollet and promote wide-spread defamation against minors like Nicholas Sandmann.

Additionally, during the interview, Comey admitted there was nothing to the Russian collusion story after all.
Amanpour asked him, “Are you worried in hindsight that you didn’t bust any norm, or you didn’t tell the people that you were investigating Russian interference before the election?”
Comey replied, “Sure, but now looking back through the lens of the conclusion from the Special Counsel that there apparently wasn’t a case there, it just, to my mind, reinforces that we made the prudent decision.
