President Trump noticed something striking about James Comey’s leaked memos.
“James Comey Memos just out show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?” Trump tweeted.
Comey and Trump are wrangling over the release of Comey’s book. The former FBI Director has thrust himself back into the news with his “revelations. The story grew even bigger when Congress released Comey’s memos. The documents were written while Comey still had is post and center on his interactions with Trump.
“The release of #Comey Memos are further proof of @realDonaldTrump’s contempt for the rule of law. His attempts to intimidate, circumvent the law & undermine integrity of law enforcement investigations demand immediate action to protect the Mueller investigation,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted.
The Democrats are crowing over Comey’s words like they’ll be able to destroy Trump’s presidency. They won’t.
Comey is getting exactly what he wanted. His career should have been over after he was disgracefully fired. Instead, he’s using anti-Trump gossip to make a new name for himself.
“Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!” Trump tweeted.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes released a joint statement after the Comey memos were leaked.
“The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier,” they wrote.
Democrats aren’t taking that view. They’re still happily dissecting Comey’s every word, looking for something that humiliates President Trump.
