Ryan: Comey a man of integrity 'as far as I know'

Ryan: Comey a man of integrity 'as far as I know'

U.S. President Donald Trump's denunciation of former FBI Director James Comey as a "slime ball" on Friday triggered a jump of 60,000 percent in look-ups for the word on the website of dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster's. Comey expressed concern about creating a narrative that the president was being investigated personally and that it was hard to prove something never happened.

"It was my great honor to fire James Comey", Trump tweeted.

The excerpts from Mr Comey's memoir have infuriated the United States president, who insisted that he "never asked Comey for personal loyalty" and the he "hardly even knew this guy". The document claimed that Trump had watched the prostitutes urinate on themselves in the same Moscow suite that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama had stayed in "as a way of soiling the bed", Comey writes. Just another of his many lies. "His "memos" are self-serving and FAKE!" The Democratic argument is that Comey's conduct toward Clinton was wrong - their argument is still the same on this front - and that Comey's current testimony about Trump's conduct has legitimate revelatory value. Trump continued in his tweets.

It appears that the decisions made by the former head of the FBI regarding Hillary Clinton's email server investigation were affected by his expectations regarding the 2016 presidential elections. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst "botch jobs" of history. Comey also revealed during the hearing that he documented his interactions with Trump because he was "concerned" that the President "might lie about the nature of our meeting".

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC.

I think overall if you take into account all the testing we did et cetera, then Mercedes is still the favourite going in. I was a bit wide at the apex in case he misjudged his braking and obviously he misjudged more than I thought.

There are also details about Trump's attitude toward Russian Federation, and the president's apparent fixation on a story about a dossier with salacious allegations against the president. The FBI and the DNC have had a unusual back-and-forth on what happened on this issue - the DNC told BuzzFeed past year that the bureau "never requested access" to the servers and the FBI said the DNC wouldn't grant them access. It's odd that no reporters questioned her about this assertion, as some news outlets give that accomplishment to deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein. In 2015, McCabe's wife, Jill McCabe, ran for a state Senate seat in Virginia, backed in part with money provided by the state Democratic Party and a Clinton ally.

Indeed, Trump's Friday morning tweets about Comey are some of his best-composed. "If I ever start considering whose political fortunes will be affected by a decision, we're done, '" Comey said.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent mentions that he noted the president's hand size, saying they were "smaller than mine but did not seem unusually so". Trump himself absurdly used Comey's handling of the Clinton email probe as his phony pretext for firing Comey, even though he had wielded Comey's criticism as campaign ammo. Why cant we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch?

Mr. Trump balked at that description, writing on Twitter, "Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary".
