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