Chicago Tribune: Comey sought more resources for Russia investigation in days before firing, officials say

Chicago Tribune was another Mainstream outlet that peddled this misleading NY Times “report.” This report admits “It is not yet known what became of Mr. Comey’s request, or what role — if any — it played in his firing.”

Sarah Flores, DOJ spokeswoman said: “the idea that he asked for more funding” for the Russia inquiry was “totally false.”

Furthermore, Ian Prior, a spokesman for the Department of Justice at the time, described the reports that Comey had sought additional resources as “totally false”, according to The Washington Examiner.
