Of The Wildest Revelations In The Comey Memos

President Trump says memos by former FBI director proof of 'NO COLLUSION' between US and Russia

He took to twitter late Friday, saying Comey illegally leaked classified memos to the press, in order to spark the special counsel's investigation.

"I think the way in which he acts, especially his corrosive effect on norms - truth-telling being the most important of them - has that staining effect on institutions and people who are close to them".

Copies of the memos written by former FBI Director James Comey are photographed in Washington, Thursday, April 19, 2018.

Trump added that he had "other concerns" about Flynn and felt like he had to fire him after Flynn purportedly misled Vice President Mike Pence over a phone call he had with the Russians during the transition phase.

On Thursday, Mr. Trump said the memos showed that there was "NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION".

According to what Comey told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow in an interview Thursday, Giuliani's unusual powers of prediction made him so suspicious that he ordered the FBI to investigate whether any of its agents were leaking information to the ex-mayor who had since gone into the private security business.

"WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?" he asked. Maddow asked. "Yes", Comey replied.

Comey, told Trump that he was "eager to find leakers and would like to nail one to the door as a message", but explained that prosecuting reporters was "tricky".

Comey went on to say that Trump had a "corrosive" and "staining" effect on his employees, and the nation as a whole.

In fact, the Russian Federation investigation had begun in July of that year and was ongoing, and continues today nearly two years later under the auspices Mueller's special counsel office.

Former FBI Director James Comey had a series of memos containing notes from conversations he had with President Trump and certain members of his staff.

"I was pretty rough on him and his wife during the campaign", Trump reportedly said, referring to his attacks on McCabe about the handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email and political donations McCabe's wife received from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D). Comey said he did not comment at the time.

While his story is certainly far from over, in A Higher Loyalty, Comey provides an earnest, behind-the-scenes look at his life in public service as well as a devastating snapshot of the current state of affairs in Washington.

"He then reviewed in some detail the leaks of his calls with the leaders of Mexico and Australia, including how the calls had gone, how he assumed that calls he made on "this lovely phone [touching the grey phone on the desk]' were confidential, how it couldn't have come from the Mexicans or Australians, how the transcripts actually included things he doesn't remember saying ['and they say I have one of the world's greatest memories"]", the memo says. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him last month, and the inspector general's office in recent weeks referred the matter to the US attorney's office in Washington for a possible criminal investigation. "I mean, my goodness - I wouldn't want to be in Jim Comey's shoes if the IG is digging into these memos line-by-line trying to see if he might have left something in that shouldn't have gone out the door", Dupree said.
