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.”
