Trump Fires Back at ‘Disgruntled’ Comey: ‘Committed Many Crimes!’

President Donald Trump fired back at James Comey the morning after the fired FBI director’s sit-down interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC.

“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,” Trump wrote.

“Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!”

Trump has long griped that Comey drafted a statement about the ending of the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before the FBI interviewed her — a timeline the FBI has confirmed.

The president also made reference to Comey’s admission that his certainty that Clinton would win the 2016 election influenced his decision to announce the reopening of the email investigation just days before election day.

Given the extent of Comey’s attacks on Trump in his 20/20 interview — and the media blitz he’s embarking on this week — more tweets from the president can be expected.
