ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos interviewed former FBI Director James Comey on his forthcoming book “A Higher Loyalty,” which aired Sunday night. Our biggest take away from the interview is that Comey doesn’t know the first thing about truth or loyalty to the American people.
Sunday morning, President Trump started his day by calling-out Comey for his misdeeds. Using terms like “slimeball” and “self-serving” to describe him, the president made no effort to hide his feelings or his frustration.
By Sunday night, Trump’s harsh criticisms seemed well-deserved.
During the interview, Stephanopoulos appeared to take special interest in the Hillary Clinton email scandal. At one point, when asked about his decision to reveal the investigation to the public, Comey admits it definitely was political.
“It must have been. I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been. Because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump” replied Comey. “…If I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out.”
