"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the bad job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump wrote on Twitter. He is a weak and. "It must have been", he said, adding he was "operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump". Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation led to Rosenstein appointing Mueller.
Trump was accused of being involved with Russian prostitutes, having them urinate on each other on a bed.
As excerpts from Comey's memoir were released to press last week, Trump criticised Comey as a "LEAKER & LIAR" who "should be prosecuted". I don't know him very well. The full interview will air Sunday at 10 p.m. Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research. "I think he should be left to do his job, and I don't think they're really contemplating this".
In the teaser video for the throw-down between the two, the buzz words all come out of Stephanopoulos's mouth, including mob boss, the untold knowledge that can damage Trump, obstruction of justice, and impeachment.
"As far as I know", the outgoing Republican leader answered. "It wasn't necessary for my goal, which is to alert him we have this information".
Comey said he cautioned Trump against ordering an investigation into a salacious intelligence dossier alleging an 2013 encounter with prostitutes in Moscow. Comey takes care to mention that he brought with him the Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the time, a man named Robert Mueller. Trump said on Twitter. But Trump later said he was thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" around the time he chose to fire Comey.
Some of the early news coverage of Comey's memoir has made a mockery of Trump, including the cover of Friday's Daily News in NY.
The book also includes strikingly personal jabs at Trump that appear created to irritate the president. But Comey writes in his book that after the 2016 election, then-President Obama told Comey that he remained confident in his "integrity" and "ability".
Comey also wrote that in a post-election briefing for senators, then-Sen.
And White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Comey "has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntled ex-employee".
Days later, during a follow-up call, Trump assured Comey, "I'm a germophobe". In previous testimony, however, he said he never authorized an FBI subordinate to leak information about investigations of Trump or Clinton.
