Pressure to Release Comey Memos May Have Backfired on GOP

Pressure to Release Comey Memos May Have Backfired on GOP

"So General Michael Flynn's life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written)", the president said in another tweet.

Former FBI Director James' Comey's book tour has been "an absolute disaster", and the revelations have "blown up in his face", Rep. Ron DeSantis said Saturday.

DiGenova noted that it is "quite obvious" that President Trump is innocent and the "collusion theory" that he conspired with the Russian government to secure the 2016 election "has been ridiculous from the very beginning".

In Comey's memos, he recounted an exchange with Trump in which the president questioned Michael Flynn's judgement.

Trump's comments came the day after the Justice Department released redacted versions of memos that Comey composed after interactions with Trump.

Meanwhile, Comey is scheduled to speak at Amazon's corporate headquarters next week to talk about his new book.

Romney, a former MA governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee, was particularly critical of Trump during the 2016 presidential race, but has more recently tempered his criticism since announcing his Senate bid.

The President has said in the past that companies like Amazon pay little to no taxes, while putting thousand of retailers out of business. "I don't think so!"

It certainly underscores the idea that nothing White House officials say should be believed until it's actually happening. The next day, Haley hit back, releasing a statement to Fox News that read: "With all due respect, I don't get confused".

Biro added that he wonders if Comey is damaging his own reputation in order to sell books or if it's a "part of this insane deep state conspiracy theory stuff".

"If I write it in such a way that doesn't include anything of a classification, that would make it easier for us to discuss within the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the government, and to hold onto it in a way that makes it accessible to us".

My favourite Comey bits involve descriptions of Trump's astounding logorrhoea, a sort of defensive ploy in which his wall of words, uttered without pause and often without connection to each other, effectively keeps anybody from telling him anything.

Trump has disputed Comey's accounts of their conversations.

Comey's memos reportedly contained information that is now considered classified, prompting a review by the Justice Department's internal watchdog.

In a letter dated May 17 Erica S. Hamrick, deputy chief of OSC's Hatch Act Unit, told Mr. Comey they were shutting things down.

Meanwhile, Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, said that Mr Trump had invited Mr Putin to the United States during a phone call last month, and that Mr Trump indicated he would be glad to make a reciprocal visit to Moscow.

McCabe told the inspector general's office that he told Comey after the article was published that he had allowed the officials to share information about the call and that Comey responded that it was a "good" idea to rebut a one-sided narrative. "Just honestly, Comey's fall from grace has been stellar because this is somebody who was widely regarded on both sides of the aisle, until the 2016 elections, and now, as a veteran army ranger who served with the ranger regiment, I was awarded a top secret security clearance", Biro explained.
