President Trump says it was his great honor to fire James Comey. The former Director of the FBI has inserted himself back in the news with a tour to promote his new book and appearance on 60 minutes this Sunday.
In the book Comey’s details what he calls Trump’s “mob”-like approach to leadership and take aim at the President’s disposition, which he says created “the forest fire that is the Trump presidency.”
“This President is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values,” Comey wrote. “His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty.”
James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and…..
….untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst “botch jobs” of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!
Comey a former prosecutor wrote in one passage that Trump gave him “flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the mob.”
“The silent circle of assent,” Comey described. “The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.”
The President responded to Comey as he often does on Twitter and he was fired up this morning. President Trump hammered home the point that James Comey is a leaker and a liar. Both are true. James Comey has had a tough couple of years and he would be wise to hide under a rock and shut his mouth. But he is obviously a man who wants more of his 15 minutes of fame and he is not going to go away soon. The President hammered home his criticism of Comey saying “It was my Great honor” to fire Comey.
