The former special counsel to President Bill Clinton surprisingly sided with President Trump Monday morning, saying he “agrees” with Trump’s decision to fire James Comey because he’s a “narcissist” who personally chooses which set of “rules to follow and which rules not.”
Longtime Clinton confidant Lanny Davis was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to comment on Trump’s decision to remove former FBI Director James Comey; saying he agrees with the President’s decision but not for the same reason.
“I do agree with Donald Trump on one thing and that is James Comey should have been fired … because he thinks he gets to choose which rules to follow and which rules not,” said Davis.
“Why? Because he’s a narcissist who gets to decide who’s right and who’s wrong rather than following the rules.

COMEY CONFUSION: Former FBI Boss Told Congress FLYNN DIDN’T LIE to Bureau
While Robert Mueller’s never-ending Trump investigation continues to spiral out of control, recent information is shedding new light on former advisor Michael Flynn’s testimony; with inside sources saying James Comey told Congressional leaders the bureau didn’t believe Flynn intentionally lied.
According to the Washington Examiner, “two sources” with inside knowledge of both Flynn’s conversations with the FBI as well as Comey’s testimony to Congress claim the former FBI chief told investigators that the bureau “did not believe” Flynn had either lied or was intentionally lying while speaking with agents.
“According to two sources familiar with the meetings, Comey told lawmakers that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe that Flynn had lied to them, or that any inaccuracies in his answers were intentional. As a result, some of those in attendance came away with the impression that Flynn would not be charged with a crime pertaining to the Jan. 24 interview,” writes the Examiner.
Despite Comey’s assertions, Robert Mueller charged Flynn approximately nine months later with intentionally making false statements to the FBI during his January 24th questioning.
The revelation raises serious questions over why Flynn was charged, and whether Robert Mueller’s ongoing witch hunt is desperately searching for inroads into President Trump’s inner-circle.

COMEY RETURNS: Former FBI Boss RESURFACES, Swipes at President Trump
Former FBI Director James Comey re-emerged from semi-retirement this week to take a swipe at President Trump; shamelessly promoting his upcoming audiobook on social media and sarcastically writing, “this time there will be a tape.”
The former bureau boss posted a picture of himself on twitter Tuesday evening, informing his followers that his “audio book is almost finished,” adding “Lordy, this time there will be a tape.”

Comey’s comments reference similar statements he made during his Congressional testimony last year, where he told lawmakers he “hoped” President Trump kept secret recordings of private conversations held in the Oval Office.
The blowback on social media was immediate, with one user sarcastically asking the bureau’s top brass, “Do you admit in the book to being responsible for this mess?”
The former FBI boss made headlines earlier this year when he officially announced he would be teaching a course on “ethical leadership” at the College of William and Mary in the coming months.
