President Donald Trump predicted via Twitter this morning that former FBI Director James Comey’s “leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible.”
Trump added, “Totally illegal? Very ‘cowardly!’”
Trump is Tweeting about Comey again after the ousted FBI director gave testimony on meeting she had with the president before the Senate Intelligence committee last week.
I believe the James Comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible. Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 11, 2017
Even though many of Republicans have found Comey’s testimony credible, the president has called the former FBI director a liar and a “leaker.”
During his testimony, Comey said that he asked a friend to release contents of memos he’d written about his meetings with the president to a journalist.
Comet contended that this information was not classified or protected in any other way.
