President Donald Trump vilified former FBI Director James Comey after his recent media appearances in a Thursday morning interview on Fox and Friends.
“Comey is a leaker and he is a liar and not only on this stuff, he has been leaking for years,” Trump declared, saying of his personal memos distributed to the press “It is all classified. It is totally classified. Legally he did an illegal act and he said it himself in order to get a special counsel against me.”
“It is totally classified,” the president said again of the memos continuing “He leaked memos which were classified. Nobody unclassified them. The memos were about me. They are phony memos. He didn’t write the memos accurately. He put a lot of phony stuff.”
Trump referenced specifically Comey’s claim that the president told him he never spent the night in Moscow, saying, “His memo said I left immediately. I never said that. I never said I left immediately.”
