Comey: Belief Clinton would win election 'factor' in email probe

15 April 2018

Clinton has blamed Comey for her loss.

"He knows all he said to Congress is I will quote 'look at new information.' He never said I will turn over something to you", continued Davis, who worked in the Bill Clinton White House and remains close to the Clintons.

FBI Director James Comey speaks at the Boston Conference on Cyber Security at Boston College in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S., March 8, 2017.

Trump, who fired Comey, lashed out at the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, calling him a "slimeball" and saying it was "unbelievable" that Comey was making decisions "based on the fact that he thought the Democratic presidential candidate "was going to win".

Trump had responded to the book, saying Comey "should be prosecuted".

An aggrieved, tortured and manic Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to air his fury about fired former FBI Director James Comey, whose new book has obviously wedged itself well under the president's skin.

Comey compared Trump to a mob boss in the book, writing that Trump sought loyalty "like Sammy the Bull's Cosa Nostra induction ceremony", a reference to the infamous mob boss.

The excerpts sparked another furious round of tweets by Trump, calling Comey a "slime ball" and saying he "stupidly" handled a probe into Trump's 2016 election rival Hillary Clinton. His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!'

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

"I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out", Comey added. Why can't we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch?

"Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary", Trump asks in another Tweet.

"I don't remember consciously thinking about that", Comey said, "but it must have been". No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!

Because he canceled his trip to South America in favor of approving airstrikes against Syria, President Trump had plenty of time on his hands this weekend to seethe. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. "All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"

"3 presidents are in my book: 2 help illustrate the values at the heart of ethical leadership; 1 serves as a counterpoint", he wrote.
