RNC Prepares Aggressive Plan To Discredit Comey Ahead Of Media Blitz

RNC Prepares Aggressive Plan To Discredit Comey Ahead Of Media Blitz

The website, which links to several interviews where Democrats criticize Comey, also tries to defend Trump's decision to fire Comey.

Comey said then-DHS secretary Kelly said he was "sick" about the situation and "intended to quit" in protest, saying "he didn't want to work for dishonorable people" - meaning President Donald Trump.

Comey sat down with ABC's George Stephanopoulos for a 20/20 special report and made statements he has not previously said publicly that would "certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump", an unnamed source who was present at the taping told Axios for a report Wednesday morning.

"...badly overstepped his bounds", the site quotes Hillary Clinton as saying in September 2017.

"He wrote that Trump said: "'I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.

Watch the Queen take a hilarious swipe at Donald Trump
Like many a pensioner, the pair are recorded complaining about health and safety and attempts to prevent children playing conkers. However, the Monarch's latest sassy moment involved a swipe at President Donald Trump that will have you in stitches of laughter.

The President's firing of Comey set into motion a cascading series of events that continue to complicate and cloud the Trump presidency. The dismissal led Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the probe. The well-orchestrated RNC strategy could, of course, be upended by the President himself through a tweet or off-the-cuff comments about Comey.

In recent weeks, Trump has continued to attack Comey on Twitter, and Comey has suggested he will have his say through his book. Mrs Clinton's supporters believed that the investigation was politically motivated and aided Mr Trump's campaign.

The RNC, again, attempts to correct the record, noting that Comey has "confirmed multiple times under oath that neither President Trump nor his staff asked him to stop the Russian Federation investigation".

Well, Comey's book is out next week, and the little Boy Scout is going to be telling on everybody. He was appointed USA attorney for the Southern District of NY and deputy attorney general by President George W. Bush; he was appointed Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President Barack Obama. The memoir's release is the first major opportunity for Comey to speak aloud - and be subjected to questions - about his interaction with Trump before being fired.

At various times, Mr. Comey has been reviled by both parties.
