President Donald Trump has lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey on Friday morning in an angry tweet storm.

“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR,” Trump wrote. “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.”

In fact, Comey did not leak classified information, but rather leaked out a memo that he wrote about his interactions with Trump in which Trump asked the former FBI director for his personal loyalty. As the Washington Post explains, this specific memo contained no classified material.

After calling for his own former FBI director to be prosecuted, Trump continued attacking Comey in very personal terms.

“He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI,” Trump wrote. “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 has been on TV promoting his new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” which is scheduled to be released on April 17.

In the excerpts released from the book, the media has focused on a few main points. First, an indication that the so-called “Russian pee tape” of Trump with prostitutes is real. Others include Comey’s take on Trump’s smaller stature, smaller hands, orange skin and hair that seemed like it would take him a while to “do” each morning. Another allegation is that Comey and the FBI were taken aback by the Trump transition team being more interested in “spin” than the fact that Russia had attacked the United States.

The Republican National Committee has launched a website to attack Comey and Fox News has been using the same language the president used in attacking the former FBI director.

Trump generates devastating stories faster than Biden’s opposition research team can compile them: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Tuesday, columnist Jennifer Rubin quoted one of anti-Trump conservative Rick Wilson's favorite sayings: "Everything Trump touches dies" -- saying that his sentiment has never been more evident than now, especially in the wake of the New York Times' bombshell report on the President's tax history.

Rubin points out that Trump will likely be confronted with the story during his first debate with Joe Biden on Tuesday night, but she says that Biden should be clear that Trump's tax history is the least of his scandals.

Published

A secretive conservative group is bankrolling the confirmation battles for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominees, but it's not clear who funds that activity.

The right-wing Judicial Crisis Network has spent $27 million in dark money to block President Barack Obama’s 2016 Supreme Court nominee, only to turn around and spend millions ushering Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh through their confirmation process, reported The Daily Poster.

The shadowy organization, originally founded in 2004 to promote President George W. Bush's judicial nominees, received $15.9 million from a single donor between July 2018 and June 2019, when the group was promoting Kavanaugh's controversial nomination.
