James Comey Speech Shouted Down by Howard University Student Protesters (Video)Former FBI director James Comey’s keynote address at Howard University was delayed on Friday morning when demonstrators interrupted him shortly after he took to the podium.

The group rose up from the audience in unison and said, “We shall not be moved,” while chanting statements such as “We are here to reclaim this space,” “No justice, no peace,” and “Get out James Comey, you aren’t our homey,” NBCChicago.com reported.

Comey asked the crowd to hear him out, while another group urged the audience to let him speak.

When he was finally allowed to begin his address around 15 minutes after the event began, Comey said: “I am here at Howard to try to get smarter, to try to be useful, to try and have healthy conversations.”

Before the event, flyers were passed around the campus of the historically black university university titled “Quick facts about James Comey,” detailing his prior stances, such as that racism is not a serious issue within policing, that the FBI under his leadership surveilled Black Lives Matter activists and that he popularized the controversial term “the Ferguson effect.”
