Trump: “Comey Based Clinton Exonoration on Poll Numbers”

~ American Liberty Report

 

James Comey has been in the news a lot lately, and he isn’t helping the Left to improve its reputation for being pathetic and dishonest. He’s got a new book out and it’s full of flaccid rumors and subjective impressions about the President.

In one passage, he went on at length about his impressions about Trump’s hair, skin color, and hand size. This paragraph has been given a lot of play on the Clinton News Network and MSDNC, but it hasn’t made much of an impression on anyone else.

His recent appearance in an interview on 20/20 with George Stephanopoulos hasn’t done much for his image as a milk-soft Democrat

By Thomas Gallatin · at the Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/55489-comeys-memos-prove-to-exonerate-trump

On Thursday, after months of foot-dragging and threats of subpoena and impeachment, the Justice Department finally handed over to Congress memos written by former FBI Director James Comey. They contain no bombshell revelations; rather they provide greater details of Comey’s meetings and conversations with President Donald Trump. And as Trump expressed via his favorite social media site, “James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?”
