Trump targets Comey, calls him ‘worst FBI Director in history’

Washington: United States President Donald Trump continued his tirade against former FBI Director James Comey, saying, “he will go down as the worst FBI Director in history, by far.”

Trump went on a Twitter spree on Sunday, ranting against Comey, whose new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” a memoir that includes explosive details about the run-up to his firing as FBI director by US President, will be released on April 17.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

Trump also rattled through a series of questions, he said were not answered in “Comey’s badly reviewed book”.

“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 said in another tweet.

Comey, during congressional testimony last year, said that he helped to leak details of a memo about Trump to the New York Times while clarifying that it did not contain classified information.

The US President even questioned his integrity as he wrote, ” 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!”(ANI)
