Trump attacks ex-FBI executive Comey in early morning tweetstorm

That ire was clearly in response to Comey’s widely-leaked though unreleased new book “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” in that a former law coercion central describes a president’s life as “a cocoon of choice reality” and Trump himself as “untethered to truth.”
Trump dismissed Comey in May 2017 and pronounced Sunday that he “never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty.”
Trump’s tweets enclosed countless allegations that are unproven and unverified.
The boss also seemed to be responding to a FBI raid on and court-authorized hunt of a bureau of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who authorities pronounced has been under rapist review for months.
But Trump dedicated many of his morning to Comey, whom he called a “Slimeball!” in his initial tweet, that is not his initial use of that epithet in regards to Comey.
The boss also claimed that Comey “states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a cause in a doing (stupidly) of a Clinton Email probe,” adopting a handbill initial deployed by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday.
Days before to a 2016 election, Comey sent a minute to Congress announcing his goal to free a review into Hillary Clinton’s emails after finding additional emails on a former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s mechanism while questioning him for purported sexting with a underage girl.
But a president’s characterization that Comey was shabby by polls is an oversimplification of what a former FBI executive wrote. In his book, that is set to be expelled after this week, Comey writes that “because we was creation decisions in an sourroundings where Hillary Clinton was certain to be a subsequent president, my regard about creation her an deceptive boss by concealing a restarted review gimlet larger weight than it would have if a choosing seemed closer or if Donald Trump were forward in a polls.”
But that wasn’t Trump’s usually censure over a book that seemed to perturb him and those in a White House final week after members of a media performed unreleased copies of a book.
“The large questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered, like how come he gave adult personal information (jail), because did he distortion to Congress (jail), because did a DNC exclude to give server to a FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), because a artificial memos, McCabe’s $700,000 more?” Trump tweeted.
Andrew McCabe served as emissary FBI executive until he was dismissed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions final month.
