Donald Trump accuses former FBI head James Comey of breaking law

Acting FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee meeting on the FBI's budget requests for FY2018

Former FBI Director James Comey was being investigated by the government's Office of Special Counsel for potential Hatch Act violations at the time he was sacked, according to new documents released Friday as part of a Freedom of Information Act case.

My favourite Comey bits involve descriptions of Trump's astounding logorrhoea, a sort of defensive ploy in which his wall of words, uttered without pause and often without connection to each other, effectively keeps anybody from telling him anything.

Mr Trump sacked Mr Comey previous year while he was leading an FBI investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. "He wakes up in the morning.I'm out there living my best life, he wakes up in the morning and tweets at me". But the part of the memos that most caught my attention and greatly troubles me is the one that reflects a blatant disrespect for freedom of the press by both Trump and Comey, who is no martyr.

Comey and Trump discussed the infamous "pee tape" dossier, he wrote in a memo dated February 8, 2017.

Mr Flynn was forced to resign over charges that he had lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian Federation. Ahead of delivering them into his 17, Comey allegedly redacted portions of a few himself. "So he could wind up getting in trouble for precisely the kind of thing that Hillary Clinton was tortured about, which I think might well give satisfaction to Hillary's people long after the fact".

"I hope you can let this go", Mr Trump is reported to have said after a White House meeting. Trump told Comey it was "nonsense", but acknowledged Russian President Vladimir Putin told him "we have some of the most attractive hookers in the world". The amount of time they took to reach reporters after being handed over to Congress could be measured in minutes, if not seconds.

The Comey memos have been made public at last. The founders of the United States were deathly afraid of overcentralized government power and saw the press as the bulwark against despotism and corruption.

The top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee disagrees, saying the memos prove President Trump interfered in a "blatant effort to deny justice".

But last month a source told Us Weekly that Ms Trump is horrified that "all eyes are on her relationship with her husband".

Bromwich decried Trump's "continuing slander" against McCabe. But in a January 7, 2017 email comprising the first memo he wrote, Comey explained he was "not convinced of the suitable classification have plumped for solution".

James Comey arrives to speak about his book "A Higher Loyalty" in NY on Wednesday.
