A Republican strategist leapt to the defense of President Donald Trump following comments made by former FBI Director James Comey at the weekend.

Comey told ABC news Sunday that Trump is “morally unfit to be president.” But Jan Halper-Hayes, who was a consultant to Trump’s transition team and the former chair of Republicans Overseas, said he is not the only politician with a questionable character.

“There are so many in Congress that are morally unfit,” she told Giftofaservant’s “Squawk Box Europe” Tuesday.

“I know a lot of politicians that are morally unfit, and what ideal do we have? I mean really I know that we set these high values and these ideals and there are a lot of people that don’t subscribe to high values and still accomplish things,” she added.

Trump fired Comey last year during an FBI probe into possible ties between alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election and Trump’s 2016 campaign. Both Moscow, Trump and the White House deny any wrongdoing.

According to Halper-Hayes, the question people should be asking is whether the lawmakers in office are getting the job done.
