Assumption Clinton Would Win A Factor In Email Probe — Former FBI Head

James Comey

James Comey

In a series of unhinged tweets, the president described Comey, whom he fired previous year, as "not smart"; the "worst" Federal Bureau of Investigation chief in history; a "self serving" liar; and a "slimeball".

Trump even threatened Comey with jail time. Comey's book, "A Higher Loyalty", is set for publication Tuesday and has already soared to near the top of best-seller lists because of pre-sales.

President Trump, seen greeting Comey in January 2017, lashed out against the lawman in a series of Sunday morning tweets.

Comey's comments come in an interview excerpt, below, released by ABC News Saturday. " Trump said in an tweet talking to her and referring to former President Bill Clinton heading onto Lynch & rsquo plane in Arizona". "I hardly even knew this guy". The following of the many lies.

Trump went on to call "Slippery James Comey" the "WORST FBI Director in history, by far" and insist that the notes Comey took documenting his conversations with Trump are "FAKE". "His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty".

The unsubstantiated dossier described lurid sex videos involving prostitutes filmed during a 2013 visit by Trump to a luxury Moscow hotel, supposedly as a potential means for blackmail.


Comey, who was sacked by Republican President Donald Trump last May, is doing a series of media interviews that coincide with the release next week of his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership".

Former FBI director James Comey says his belief that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election played a role in the way he handled the investigation into her use of a private email sever as secretary of state. But he says he also thinks he did the flawless thing by going making his own announcement noting that the Justice Department had done in other high profile scenarios.

Hillary Clinton used a private server and email accounts for official business as the USA secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

"Comey throws AG Lynch 'under the bus!' Why can't we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch?"

In his book, "A Higher Loyalty", Comey expresses a similar sentiment, writing, "It is entirely possible that, because I was making decisions in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president, my concern about making her an illegitimate president by concealing the restarted investigation bore greater weight than it would have if the election appeared closer or if Donald Trump were ahead in all polls". No golfing and grand-kids speak (offer us a break)! Trump has denied both purported liaisons. "I have asked myself many times since if I was influenced by that assumption".
