Reports that former FBI Director James Comey and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz are having an affair are false. Rumors of their illicit love stemmed from a satire website.

According to PolitiFact, the fake claim originated on Freedom Crossroads, a “satirical fiction” website. The article, titled “BREAKING: The Democrat James Comey Has Been Having An Affair With Was JUST REVEALED! (DETAILS),” claimed that their affair had lasted at least eight months and began while they were both working for the government. It purported:

As we promised, Freedom Crossroads has just learned the identity of the Democrat James Comey has been having an affair with for at LEAST the last 8 months, it’s none other than the DISGRACED former Chair of the DNC, Debbie “Whiny Democrat” Wasserman Schultz — talk about a match made in Heave… errrrr… Hell!

These two dimwits were probably attracted to each other because they are both LOSERS who can’t accept defeat, but that doesn’t really differentiate them from the rest of the crybaby Democrat Party, now does it?

The report, however, is entirely fabricated. While Comey and Wasserman Schultz are, in fact, both married, they were not engaging in an affair. Freedom Crossroad’s disclaimer clearly states that they publish only satire and parody content:

We believe that there is nothing more precious than the mind of an aging conservative. Here we gather a boatload of bullhonkey, works of pure satirical fiction, to give the fist-shakers of the world a reason to hate. Reality is often in the eye of the beholder. You won’t find any of it here.

Here are some examples of people sharing the fake story on social media:
