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

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

Almost half of likely USA voters say former FBI Director James Comey must face criminal prosecution and also want a special prosecutor appointed to examine how the FBI handled its investigation of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emails during the 2016 election, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports.

Trump tweeted Monday morning, a day after Comey appeared on ABC's 20/20 with a litany of accusations against the president. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Comey's May 2017 testimony when he told Grassley that he had never been an anonymous source to the news media.

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll out this week says that Americans find Comey to be "more believable" than Trump, 48-32 percent, highlighting the White House's need to discredit him.

Trump on Monday again alleged that while Federal Bureau of Investigation director Comey prematurely decided he would not recommend his Justice Department bosses prosecute Clinton over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

The president was back at it Monday morning, slamming the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he fired previous year - and admitted thinking of the Justice Department's Russian Federation election meddling probe in doing so - over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email case. The president contended Comey "lied in Congress to Senator G [raham]" and "then based his decisions on her poll numbers".

Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty, will be released on Tuesday and in it, he calls the president "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values".

In a statement to The Associated Press, Lynch responds to criticism from Comey in his forthcoming book that, early in the email inquiry, she had instructed him to refer to it as a "matter" rather than an "investigation". Clinton, in part, blames Comeys handling of the email case for her not winning the presidency.

Two days later, on Sunday morning, Trump again lashed out at Comey on Twitter. "It was my great honor to fire James Comey!"

In another Sunday post, Trump latched onto Comey's admission in the book he might have subconsciously expected Clinton to win.

"In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job", Trump wrote. "That's up from 41 percent last June following Comey's admission under oath to a US Senate committee that he leaked memos of his private meetings with [President Donald] Trump as Federal Bureau of Investigation director to The New York Times through a friend", a press release summarizing the poll said.
