The New York Post: Trump again lashes out against Comey, calling former FBI director a liar, ‘slimeball’

In a series of tweets on Sunday, President Donald Trump referred to “Slippery James Comey” as a “slimeball,” accused him of lying to Congress and throwing the former attorney general “under the bus,” and denied asking the former FBI director for his “personal loyalty.”

The presidential tweetstorm comes as excerpts of Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” have been released before the tell-all hits bookstores on Tuesday.

“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!,” he said at the end of a string of five tweets about Comey on Sunday morning.

“Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!,” he also wrote.

In interviews to promote the book, Comey said he announced the reopening of an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server weeks before the 2016 election because he believed she would win and if he wasn’t open about the probe should would be seen as “illegitimate.”

About 15 minutes later, Trump blasted Comey for leaving many questions unanswered.

“The big questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?,” he wrote, referring to former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired last month.

The president also brought up former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s meeting with former President Bill Clinton at an Arizona airport in June 2016 while the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server was underway.

“Comey throws AG Lynch “under the bus!” Why can’t we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch?,” Trump railed. “Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary. No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!”

Trump also denied asking Comey to profess his “personal loyalty” during a meeting at the White House shortly after the inauguration.

” I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty. I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His “memos” are self serving and FAKE! ,” he said.
