Trump Suggests Comey Tried to Protect Hillary Clinton

President Trump accused former FBI Director James Comey of trying to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution “long before investigation was complete.”

In a pair of tweets, Trump pointed to the recently disclosed Justice Department documents that indicated a draft of a Comey statement was circulating among aides in May 2016, two months before Comey’s announcement that there would be no recommended charges, the Washington Post. 

The Post wrote:

  • Trump’s tweets revive his feud with Comey, whom he fired in May, and the Democratic opponent he defeated last year. He has twice this week referred to Clinton as “Crooked Hillary,” his campaign trail nickname for her.
  • Trump said Comey had “stated under oath that he didn’t do this,” in apparent reference to Comey’s Senate testimony in which he said there was no criminal case to bring. In his tweet Wednesday, Trump asked, “Where is Justice Dept?” apparently inviting an investigation into the existence of the 2016 email chain.
