President Donald Trump on Friday lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey, whose newly released memos detail the president repeatedly talked with him about Russian prostitutes, among other embarrassing details.
“So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey (sic) James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written),” the president wrote on Twitter. “Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don’t think so!”‘
Comey’s memos, which were leaked to the media on Thursday night, offered a slew of new details surrounding his interactions with the Trump White House.
Among other things, they show that Trump talked with his former FBI director about Russian prostitutes on three separate occasions; that the FBI had been granted a FISA warrant to surveil former national security adviser Michael Flynn while he was working in the White House; that Trump, despite his professed love for Flynn, questioned his judgement; and that Trump had pitched jailing reporters as a way to stop leaks coming from the White House.
