COMEY'S ADMISSION: Comey Claims OBAMA 'Jeopardized' Hillary Investigation

Comey takes a swipe at Trump in plug for new book

Comey takes a swipe at Trump in plug for new book

Comey, Trump tweeted, “was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job.

That said, Comey's coherent broadside drives the Trump camp to play games of political Twister.

Trump's tweets are part of a broader effort by the White House and the Republican National Committee to discredit Comey, who has written a damaging tell-all book called "A Higher Loyalty", to be released Tuesday.

The White House is preemptively attacking former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, before the release of his book Tuesday. He also said that "it's possible" the Russians have something on Trump.

"Possibly. I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".

A large man at 6-foot-8, Comey notes that he checked the president's hand size: It was "smaller than mine but did not seem unusually so".

Yet Comey is willing to crown Trump as a king for four years, to argue that an unfit president who won a minority of the popular vote in 2016 (and trailed his main opponent by nearly 3 million votes) should be allowed to remain in office until January 20, 2021. "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!" McCabe was recently dismissed from the Trump administration. Comey said an unverified dossier assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele had no impact on triggering the investigation.

Comey listed the episode as among the trio of events that influenced his widely criticized decision to announce the decision not to prosecute Clinton, even as he chided her for being "extremely careless" with her emails.

Comey told Congress earlier that he and the president spoke about Flynn in private.

"I don't think he's medically unfit to be president".

While there are still some unanswered questions, of course, ABC's Sunday night telecast told the Comey tale from start to finish.

"I don't know the guy", he added. "Just another of his many lies", Trump responded on Twitter Sunday. Now James Comey, the former FBI Director whose abrupt firing by Trump helped launch the Mueller inquiry, is no longer holding back his opinions on the President's behavior.

"Director Wray would rather be answering questions on the FBI's current work, its mission, priorities, and challenges rather than having this rather cloud on his horizon, questions about Jim Comey". Meanwhile, Syrian and Russian officials reportedly blocked a chemical weapons watchdog team from reaching the site where the suspected attack occurred. The former national security adviser admitted guilt in court last December. The retired general pleaded guilty in December and is now cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

During the broadcast, ABC reporter George Stephanopoulos asked, "Do you think the Russians have something on Donald Trump?".

"Obviously, most likely is that he's not", Comey said.

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty".

Trump references a meeting that Bill Clinton - whom he calls "Wild Bill" - and Lynch had on a Phoenix tarmac in July 2016 that was seen as questionable, as Lynch was leading the investigation into Hillary Clinton.

The admission led to strong criticism from Trump. She asserted that Comey has "proven to be dishonest".

Many Democratic Party activists blamed Comey for Clinton's loss. And this week, Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World by Jennifer Palmieri, the communications director for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, took the top spot.

Comey again defended his actions, telling ABC that he made what he thought was the best decision at the time. "His words were, though, "I hope you can let it go.' I took the expression of hope as, 'This is what I want you to do.'" "Was President Trump obstructing justice?" George Grow was the editor.
