Trump Responds To 'Disgruntled' Comey Interview: He 'Committed Many Crimes!'

President Donald Trump fired off a barrage of angry tweets early Sunday morning, directing much of his ire at the the former head of the FBI, whom he called "the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said former FBI Director James Comey's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos was a dud and did not live up to the hype. The rest of Conway's points were baffling and irrelevant, but by far the most oblivious moment was when she claimed, "The president is very confounded that this person is always able to divert the spotlight to him".

Last summer, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen.

The poll also revealed that 49 percent of voters say a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials under then-Director Comey handled the investigations of Hillary Clinton and Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion during the 2016 presidential campaign and subsequent transition, the release said.

Comey discussed the decision-making that went into announcing just days before the election that the FBI was re-opening the Clinton email investigation.

The simple fact is that Trump was elected and Comey was appointed.

When Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee a year ago, he said that he did not know if Trump obstructed justice, adding, "that's Bob Mueller's job to sort that out". A lawyer for McCabe has disputed the report's conclusions.

The president "treats women like they're pieces of meat".


James Comey's interview on ABC's 20/20 Sunday night attracted 9.8 million viewers. Trump on Sunday rejected Comey's assertion that Trump had sought his loyalty at a January 2017 dinner, saying "I hardly even knew this guy". He also acknowledged he had no proof that Russian Federation has dirt on Trump: "I think it's possible".

Trump clapped back at Comey several times over the weekend including calling him a "slimeball".

Comey also said that serving in Trump's administration poses a serious ethical dilemma.

He said Sessions responded by not meeting his gaze, darting his eyes around, and letting Comey know he was on his own. Comey writes that Trump is "ego-driven and about personal loyalty", going on to compare him to a mafia boss who demands loyalty.

Trump told Comey that he had not stayed overnight in the Moscow hotel and that the claims related to the prostitutes were not true, Comey said.

"I think it's possible". He said, like others, he expected Clinton would win throughout the general election, saying he was seeing the same polling data that led many political experts to predict she would be the 45th president. Flynn and two of the president's campaign aides, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, have pleaded guilty and are cooperating with Mueller.

When it comes to watching people go after the president, it seems the American public is much more interested in what an adult-film star has to say than a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director. She wrote in her book that he "shivved" her. There's something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country.
