President Donald Trump lit into former FBI Director James Comey on Monday, saying he drafted his exoneration of Hillary Clinton based on political polls that showed her winning the 2016 election, in the latest swap of allegations between the two.
"Jim Comey setting a 'moral standard' after his sanctimonious, self-serving, book-selling 'interview' with former Clinton press secretary [Stephanopoulos] is like Harvey Weinstein setting standards for monogamy".
Comey made a lot of other statements in the interview that will no doubt comfort and encourage Trump's critics: There's a "non-zero chance" that Russia has incriminating information on Trump, he lies compulsively, he treats women "like meat". Many of the people watching Sunday night did not know that George Stephanopoulos so loved Bill and Hillary Clinton that he sacrificed his personal life (read his book) to put the Clintons in the White House.
In one conversation, Trump insisted to Comey that it was unimaginable that he would sleep with prostitutes.
"This is not normal", he continued. The FBI was also interested in Carter Page, another adviser.
Steele was in contact with the FBI several weeks earlier. In their book "Russian Roulette", the investigative journalists David Corn and Michael Isikoff report that five months before the pageant, Trump and his entourage, including his Russian associate Emin Agalarov, visited a louche Las Vegas nightclub called the Act. "It would depend upon other things that reflected on his intent", Comey said.
The thought of having dinner alone with Trump at the White House made Comey "deeply uncomfortable", he wrote, because he feared that the president wanted to compromise the FBI's integrity and independence and was waging "an effort to establish a patronage relationship" with him.
Comey was leading the FBI's investigation into Russian election meddling until Special Counsel Robert Mueller took over in May.
Hosting prominent speakers has been the cornerstone of PNW Sinai Forum's renowned history, entering its 65th season this fall, according to Plesac. "I think the tweets the president has been making our beneath the dignity of the office of President of the United States", said Congresswoman Pelosi. It goes to show how an entire career can be defined by just one action, even if you spent your tenure at the FBI overseeing the entrapment of mentally handicapped teens in fake terrorism plots.
"I actually thought, as bad as this'll be for me personally, this is my obligation, to protect the F.B.I. and the Justice Department", he said.
In the ABC interview, Comey said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein acted "dishonorably" by writing a memo that the president relied upon in part to justify the decision to fire him. Part of it may be that most Americans are very familiar with Trump - and see him as dishonest. "The guy's got an ego, you know, as long as the Jersey Turnpike, and that ego ... the lack of common sense ... really speaks volumes of why he is where he's at". Clinton has blamed that for her defeat.
