President Donald Trump is not happy with FBI Director James Comey for not arresting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with Fox Business, host Maria Bartiromo claimed that many people don’t understand why there are still so many appointees or staff from President Barack Obama’s administration. She was specifically talking about Comey. Still, Trump expressed confidence in the embattled director.
“When Jim Comey came out, he saved Hillary Clinton. He saved her life,” referring to Comey’s declaration that he would not be charging Clinton with a crime.
“When he was reading those charges, she was guilty of every charge, and then he said she was essentially OK,” Trump continued.
Yet, when it comes to the investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia, Trump still has confidence in Comey.
He went on to complain about the obstruction in Congress and pesky things like “the law” that blocks him from doing what he’d like to do. “I wish they’d explain better the obstructionist nature,” he said.
When it comes to former Obama advisor Susan Rice, Trump continued to claim she ordered the unmasking of the name of the American being investigated. These unmaskings are part of the responsibilities of the national security advisor.
“Does anybody really believe that,” Trump said. “What they did is horrible.”
