Trump Explodes On Twitter Following James Comey Interview, Accuses Comey Of Committing ‘Many Crimes’
During Former FBI Director James Comey’s ABC News interview on yesterday, Comey fiercely ridiculed President Donald Trump and claimed that evidence of obstruction of justice exists. This morning, Trump responded in his traditional method: a Twitter attack.
In his tweet, Trump made some pretty damning accusations:
Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!

While it is true (according to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that Comey did draft an exoneration for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before he completed the investigations into her e-mails), Trump did not explain what “many crimes” Comey, McCabe and “others” committed.
During the interview, Comey attacked Trump’s moral abilities to be president.
“He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who’s tracking conversations and knows what’s going on. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president,” Comey said.
“A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds,” Comey said.
“There’s something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country. The most important being truth,” he continued. “This president is not able to do that. He is morally unfit to be president.”
Even before the interview, Trump was attacking Comey, Tweeting:
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!

Without further clarification, it looks like the only crime Comey has committed is his thought that Trump should be removed from office, or at least impeached. “I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they’re duty bound to do directly,” Comey said. “People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values.”
