Trump: Comey “Lied And Leaked” To Protect Hillary

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that former FBI Director James Comey “lied and leaked” information and ultimately protected Hillary Clinton, while also questioning the credibility of the FBI’s probe into her email. Trump’s early morning tweets come in the wake of news that the bureau’s former director had drafted a statement exonerating Clinton before the investigation was over.

Newsweek reported Monday on documents released by the FBI that included an email sent on May 2, 2016, by Comey to other FBI officials that included a file titled “Drafts of Director Comeys July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01.”

Despite Comey having already drafted a statement on the investigation into Clinton’s email practices while at the State Department, the probe would continue on for months. Clinton herself was not interviewed until July 2, 2016, three days before Comey held a press conference to announce that the FBI would not recommend filing charges against the former secretary of state.

    No, honey, YOU lied and your russian whores leaked…

      I see what you did there. Ewww. :*(

    Wow, Turmp can’t even NOT circle back to Russia, just when he was getting the attention set on Congress.

    • JT

      He’s definitely psychologically disturbed.

      And there’s nowhere to go but DOWN.

      I’m going away on Friday, for my annual choir retreat among the redwoods (Sonoma County: please no more fires or SMOKE!). In a deep valley, there is NO cellphone coverage, no media of any kind. 48 hours of BLISS.

  • HoneyBoySmith

    This is worse than a nightmare.

    Trump is the source of the same insane, bloodcurdling shit of the worst night terror…but, there’s no way to wake up from it.

    To all the people who skipped voting or voted for Jill Stein because Clinton wasn’t pure enough: FUCK YOU!

    • Karl Dubhe

      Add the idiots who didn’t vote because they were sure it was in the bag…

    • Daveed_WOW

      I reserve my anger for the people who voted for Trump and who still support him.

      • greenmanTN

        And those who didn’t vote. Seriously, there ought to be a law that if you didn’t vote you don’t get to say a fucking thing about politics for the next 4 years. I’m not happy with the third party voters, Russian dupes that they are, but I’m not going to keep beating a dead horse.

        OK, maybe just once more for old time’s sake…

          They spent too much time looking a gift horse in the mouth not being able to see the bigger picture with their small minds and limited perspective.

        A picture truly IS worth a thousand words.

      • JD

        Sorry, seen from a distance, i.e. broader view, the issue is that most people don’t vote at all, and energy is wasted shouting that people who voted from their considered perspectives are castigated for not being “strategic” enough to vote against their wishes. Where’s your beloved “democracy” in that? Get out and get up the vote and let the chips fall where they may with an 80-90% vote.

    • cleos_mom

      Ditto people who wrote a [supposedly] wrote in more Pure and Holy® candidate. Or left the top of the ballot blank because of the badness and sametitude of both Clinton and the Dotard.

    Trump can not move on. He’s obsessed with Hillary and proving he’s right, even when he knows he’s completely wrong.

    • HoneyBoySmith

      I’m honestly not sure what’s worse:

      1) that Trump is playing his cult members for fools

      or

      2) Trump believes the bullshit he’s spreading.

      • Yes

      • JCF

        3) that Drumpf’s cult members believe the bullshit he’s spreading!

  • Tawreos

    He will never let this go because he can’t handle the fact that she won the popular vote and he can’t handle not being universally loved.

    • Dazzer

      The word ‘universally’ is not needed in that sentence.

    • greenmanTN

      If only he would settle for being universally loathed.

    • JT

      Look on the bright side. He’s coming up to being universally hated. He’s yuuuge!

    • Daveed_WOW

      I don’t think he wants to be universally loved. I think he wants to keep reminding everyone that he won and that everyone he has ever defeated is poisonous garbage. Bullies are like that. Sore winner.

      • tbj5

        He’s a narcissistic sociopath.

        He craves approval and admiration. They need it to function.

        • Daveed_WOW

          And he lashes out at those who don’t praise and admire him.

        “Love” might not describe it, but an addiction to adulation and flattery can have the same destructive results.

    The fucking election was a year ago… you won… STFU!

    • PeterC

      NO, he did NOT WIN the election. He Won the Electoral College vote; something totally different.

        He is president… like or not.

    This is the worst reality show ever.

    End it.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    I don’t know what I’d do without the daily reminders that he is President and not Hillary.

    Okay, what is rump trying to deflect from this time?

    • greenmanTN

      Same old same old. Reality.

        That Mommy & Daddy didn’t love him. And his dick is smaller than average. And wimmins are (unless you own them) SCARY!

  • TimCA

    Of course Trump is obsessed with the legitimacy of his presidency and his loss in the popular vote. But Trump also has to continue to discredit Comey’s credibility with the GOP base. Comey may be a principal witness in a future obstruction of justice charge.

  • BlindBill

    So Comey knew Hillary did nothing to warrant prosecution but let the “investigation” drag on for over 2 months … that does sound like political motivation …. but not in favor of the highly qualified presidential candidate. – Wonder if fellow GOPers and/or any presidential candidates put preasure on, or enticed him with promised power and rank to keep the investigation going? #FuckingMoron

  • tbj5

    Trump made the official reason for firing Comey be that Comey treated Hillary unfairly.

    Pretty much walking straight towards that Obstruction of Justice charge with open tiny-handed arms.

  • Gustav2

    Pssst! Little Hands Donnie, adults who see where an investigation is going prepare, edit carefully worded statements. so they don’t make themselves look as ignorant as you do with every tweet.

    Get the fuck over it.

  • Sam_Handwich
  • Todd20036

    Meanwhile, it was Comey’s leaks that put Trump over the top in the election.

    • The_Wretched

      one of several things but yeah, Comey’s open, and contrary to policy, letter to congress a week before the vote depressed Dem turnout.

      • JCF

        Coming after his unprecedented trashing of Hillary in July (since when do FBI directors hold pressers on DOJ decisions not to prosecute?), it was the nail in the coffin…

        …of, you know, of those 70K crucial votes in 3 states.* Notwithstanding her ~3million more votes.

        *If that. Assuming the vote tally wasn’t hacked.

  • Puckfair52

    Roger Stone Claims he asked Trump to fire Comey for being Unfair to Hillary

  • paganguy

    If Comey’s intent was to protect HRC, he did a pretty piss poor job. Unless he was trying to protect her from the stress of the Presidency. Certainly, he helped with that.

  • billbear1961

    His attempts to demonize all who oppose or even question him continue!

    His goal is to sow chaos, to claim he alone can save the country from evil forces out to destroy it when HE is that destructive, democracy-destroying FORCE, relentlessly lying, slandering others, undermining the rule of law, razing good government to the ground, so that he and his party can assume total control–and they will once they’re done stacking the courts and compromising the election process–to rob this country blind!!

    Gingrich admits his goal is to divide, to polarize:

    https://politicalwire.com/2017/10/18/quote-of-the-day-1752/

    People should be protesting in numbers like the Women’s March (and taking economic action–reducing spending to nothing but absolute essentials, considering work stoppages, even a General Srike)–for access to Trump’s financial records, secure elections, moderates only appointed to the courts, to save healthcare and the environment, to demand sexual predators and Nazis be held to account, and stricter gun-control laws enacted. (It’s been estimated that 3.5% of the population constantly protesting in the streets can bring down an authoritarian regime, and that if CA, NY and WA, for example, were to take economic action, they could bring economic activity in this country to a virtual standstill.)

    Look at that evil, demented FARCE in the White House, and this country isn’t in the STREETS to demand his ouster!

  • The_Wretched

    What did Comey “leak”? His present sense impressions of Donald pressuring him to drop the Trump-Russia investigation.

    The lies and rewriting history in Trump’s tweets is not normal.

  • andrew

    Yep. Comey, one of the people most responsible for Hillary’s defeat, “Leaked and Lied” to protect her.

    But her emails?

  • Mark_in_MN

    Yeah, Comey protected Hilary Clinton so much that she didn’t become President. That must be it.
