Comey: Americans Should Keep Asking Why Trump, Who Attacks Everyone, Doesn’t Go After Putin


Former FBI director James Comey encouraged Americans to keep asking why President Donald Trump, despite his constant attacks on pretty much everyone, does not similarly go after Vladimir Putin.

During his book tour, Comey said even in private, Trump would not criticize Putin.

Comey himself is one of those people Trump has gone after. Just today the White House said the President is considering revoking the security credentials of him, John Brennan, Michael Hayden, James Clapper, etc.

There is one small point of note on that:

Comey was appalled by Trump’s performance in Helsinki last week and tweeted, “This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country. Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.”
