President Trump blasted fired officials of the FBI, James Comey and Andrew McCabe, early Monday morning on Twitter after the former recently labeled Trump as “morally unfit” for office of the presidency.
According to the president’s tweet, former Director of the FBI, Comey, allegedly corroborated with former Deputy Director of the FBI, McCabe, along other unnamed individuals, of unjustly actions.
The full tweet is as follows:
“Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!”
In the latter evening of Sunday, Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership” publicity tour was launched where he bluntly expressed, “I think he’s morally unfit to be president,” when questioned about President Trump during an interview with ABC News.
Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway publicly reacted to the siituation on ABC’s “Good Morning America” by revealing that although Trump did not watch the whole of the previous night’s broadcast, he was “aware of some of the excerpts.”
In regard to Comey’s specific assertion, she questioned his appearance telling George Stephanopoulos that Comey “struggled to answer basic questions and he looked a little shaky,” while also highlighting the pettiness of mentioning Trump’s hand size and length of his tie in the book.
Conway countered Comey’s writings and ethical behavior adding, “It’s three very limited meetings with the president of the United States. I thought to myself, ‘you waited two months as the FBI director to go and meet with the president-elect and then you waited nearly a year to tell the country what was on your mind.’ If he really felt like he was saving the country rather than selling books why did he wait until an interview with you, not under oath, and selling a book, not under oath.”
Deputy White House press secretary, Hogan Gidley, also took the chance to respond to Comey’s claims on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.”
“This man, Jim Comey loves to be within the proximity of power. He loves having dinner alone with the president. If he hadn’t he should’ve invited someone or asked who else was going to be there. He loved being along in the oval office. He wanted a piece of it. He loved being in the proximity of power until he got fired and then wrote a book,” said Gidley.
Best way to close an argument is by simply stating the facts.
