Fired FBI Chief James Comey went on CNN last night to promote he new book and to smear President Trump.
Comey also bashed and lectured Republicans.
“James Comey: I’ve been embarrassed and ashamed. My question for Republicans is, so where is that? Where is that commitment to character and values. If people convince themselves, well we’ll trade it temporarily for a tax cut or Supreme Court Justice, as I say in the book that’s a fool’s bargain.
President Trump went on FOX and Friends earlier today and destroyed Comey.
“President Trump: Look, Comey is a leaker and he’s a liar and not only on this stuff. He’s been leaking for years. He’s probably been using his friend the so-called professor who now turns out to have been FBI clearance, which he never said. He even lied about that because he never said that in Congress, he said he gave it to a friend.
That was devastating.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey told reporters at his book signing Tuesday in Chicago he hired former US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald last year — around the time he was fired.
News broke earlier this week that Comey had hired Fitzgerald.
Comey admitted last year during Congressional testimony that he leaked memos to his close friend Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, in order to push a special counsel against President Trump.
Richman announced in January of this year that he was now Comey’s lawyer.
FOX News legal expert Gregg Jarrett told Sean Hannity on Tuesday that Comey likely leaked the memos to his friend Patrick Fitzgerald.
It appears Jarrett nailed it.
FOX News reported:
“The James Comey memos that leaked to the media and were a catalyst for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller were more widely shared than previously known, three sources familiar with the matter tell Fox News.

Bad news for the head of the Obama Crime Cartel. A new investigation has been announced.
Republican lawmakers on Wednesday sent a slew of criminal referrals to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a number of Obama administration officials and senior FBI employees for violations of the law in connection to the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.
Specifically, they sent criminal referrals to Sessions for: former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for separate violations.
The criminal referrals, first reported by investigative journalist Sara Carter, were made by Rep. Ron Desantis (R-FL), a senior member of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees who is leaving the House to run for Florida governor, and nine other colleagues.
Signatories included: GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (AZ), Dave Brat (VA), Jeff Duncan (SC), Matt Gaetz (FL), Paul A. Gosar (AZ), Andy Harris (MD), Jody Hice (GA), Todd Rokita (IN), Claudia Tenney (NY), and Ted Yoho (FL).

Criminal Referral Issued For Comey, Clinton, Lynch And McCabe; Rosenstein Recusal Demanded…(Lock ‘Em Up!!)

Eleven GOP members of Congress led by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) have written a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Attorney John Huber, and FBI Director Christopher Wray – asking them to investigate former FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton and others – including FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, for a laundry list of potential crimes surrounding the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Recall that Sessions paired special prosecutor John Huber with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz – falling short of a second Special Counsel, but empowering Horowitz to fully investigate allegations of FBI FISA abuse with subpoena power and other methods he was formerly unable to utilize.
The GOP letter’s primary focus appears to be James Comey, while the charges for all include obstruction, perjury, corruption, unauthorized removal of classified documents, contributions and donations by foreign nationals and other allegations.
The letter also demands that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (more…)
