Trump accuses James Comey and Andrew McCabe of ‘many crimes’ in flailing morning tweet

Published

President Donald Trump had a tumultuous weekend after launching an attack on Syria Friday night. He continued that Monday morning with his continued attack on former FBI Director James Comey, who is on his book tour.

“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 began Monday tweeting. “Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!”

In a Saturday morning Twitterstorm, Trump battled detractors after claiming victory in Syria with a throwback phrase made famous by former President George W. Bush. “Mission Accomplished!” Trump exclaimed Saturday morning about Syria, where American troops are still on the ground. Bush declared “Mission Accomplished” and 15 years later, American troops are still in Iraq.

Trump then took his attacks to former FBI Director James Comey, whose first interview about his new book aired Sunday.

“Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!” Trump tweeted Sunday.

"The very best case scenario is we rapidly bounce back and we get close to something where we were before," said Jesse Edgerton, an economist at JPMorgan. "Personally, I think that’s highly unlikely. The shock from the virus is going to trigger a broader economy-wide recession."

President Donald Trump in a private conference call on Wednesday with 10,000 leaders from his most-devoted base, the religious right, in the middle of a global pandemic, urged them to help him win re-election.

“We have a very, very powerful year coming up because you know what lies ahead,” Trump told the faith leaders, as NBC News reported. “And we have to do it. People of faith have to do it. We have to have victory.”

Rev. Johnnie Moore, a member of Trump’s religious right inner circle, says both the President and Vice President were on the call, which presumably was made from the Oval Office.
