Former FBI Director James Comey penned a scathing op-ed for the New York Times this week; saying he “believes” Donald Trump is “unfit to be the President of the United States” ahead of Robert Mueller’s impending report.
“The country is eagerly awaiting the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Many people know what they want it to say — what they feel it simply must say — namely, that Donald Trump is a criminal who should be removed from office. Or that he is completely innocent of all wrongdoing,” writes Comey.
“Even though I believe Mr. Trump is morally unfit to be president of the United States, I’m not rooting for Mr. Mueller to demonstrate that he is a criminal. I’m also not rooting for Mr. Mueller to ‘clear’ the president. I’m not rooting for anything at all, except that the special counsel be permitted to finish his work,” he adds.
President Trump urged the Attorney General Thursday to publicly release the special counsel’s findings; saying “let it come out” and allow the American people to “see it.”

COMEY CASHES IN: Disgraced FBI Boss’s New Book OUTSELLING Clinton, Wolff
Former FBI director James Comey’s Trump-bashing memoir shot to the top of the best-seller list Tuesday; outperforming both Hillary Clinton’s and Michael Wolff’s total sales combined.
According to the New York Times, Comey’s tell-all book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” blasted through sales expectations after his media-hyped publicity tour; stopping by The View, The Late Show, and countless other liberal outlets.
“Mr. Comey’s publisher, Flatiron Books, has ordered multiple reprints to meet demand, and now has more than a million copies in print,” writes the Times. “The early sales figures for Mr. Comey’s book dwarfed other recent political best sellers.”
Initial sales figures have the book selling over 600,000 copies.
The former FBI director made national headlines last week after his public attacks against President Trump; calling the Commander-in-Chief a “mob boss” acting as the head of an organized crime family.
COMEY CHAOS: Giuliani Suggests ‘PROSECUTING COMEY’ if FBI Spied on Trump
President Trump’s newest lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t hold back when commenting on recent revelations the FBI may have spied on the Trump campaign; saying if true James Comey should be “prosecuted.”
Giuliani was speaking with Fox News Thursday when he was asked to comment on new accusations the FBI had an “inside man” interacting with the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
If Comey was involved, said Giuliani, “he should be prosecuted… If there’s a spy, they got nothing from it.”
President Trump weighed-in on the revelations Thursday, saying we are “now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history.”
“Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History…and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction. The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!”
