McFeatters: Book puts Comey down in the dirt with Trump

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows charged that there's a'growing body of evidence that former FBI chief James Comey lied to Congress when he said there wasn't coordination between the FBI and the Department of Justice over the Hillary Clinton email McFeatters: Book puts Comey down in the dirt with Trump

The president said Comey illegally leaked documents to the press and that the special counsel's investigation was "based on an illegal act".

The memos, obtained by CBS News, detail a series of conversations Comey had with Trump during roughly the first four months of his administration.

"I was pretty rough on him and his wife during the campaign", Trump reportedly said, referring to his attacks on McCabe about the handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email and political donations McCabe's wife received from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D). The memos obtained by the AP were unclassified, though some portions were blacked out as classified.

Comey, told Trump that he was "eager to find leakers and would like to nail one to the door as a message", but explained that prosecuting reporters was "tricky". Comey is quoted as saying in the report.

The Comey memo continues: "In telling the story, the president pointed his fingers at his head and said, 'the guy has serious judgement issues'". At first, Comey laughed off what he thought was a joke.

It's easy to see why Comey yearned to write his account of his awkward encounters with Trump, who demanded personal loyalty from someone with a job that must be independent. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him last month, and the inspector general's office in recent weeks referred the matter to the US attorney's office in Washington for a possible criminal investigation.

Comey's memos had been eagerly anticipated since their existence was first revealed past year, especially since Comey's interactions with Trump are a critical part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether the president sought to obstruct justice.

McWilliams will need to stay out of the water during his vacation as his wound heals, but said he will be okay. Another encounter saw him bitten by a rattlesnake, though apparently this episode was less severe.

Comey told CNN's Jake Tapper on Thursday that he could not recall exactly how many of his memos in total were classified. Trump is. Comey is overwhelmed with respect and love for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its traditions.

Collins pointed out how Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team had punted longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's case to the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of NY, instead of handling it as part of the Russian Federation probe. Comey says Trump did not say when Putin had made the comment.

"Who am I to tell you about ethical leadership?"

So what you have on the one hand is Comey more or less saying Clinton had not broken the law when he more or less confirmed she had.

The question from Priebus came after former acting Attorney General Sally Yates had warned the White House that Flynn was susceptible to blackmail regarding his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

Flynn was sacked February 13, 2017, after White House officials said he had misled them about his Russian contacts during the transition period by saying that he had not discussed sanctions.

The latest gibe: "So General Michael Flynn's life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written)".
