Trump Trashes ‘Slimeball’ Comey’s ‘Badly Reviewed Book’ And Suggests He Should Be Jailed

President Donald Trump went on a Twitter tear against James Comey on Sunday morning, ahead of the former FBI director’s big first interview.

ABC News has been releasing snippets from Comey’s sure-to-be explosive tell-all with George Stephanopoulos tonight that were sure to draw the Twitter ire of Trump.

And the president took the bait on Sunday, first tweeting about Comey’s confession that his certainty that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency played a role in his decision to announce that the FBI was reopening its investigation into her.

“In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job,” Trump wrote. “Slimeball!”

Trump then suggested that Comey’s supposed offenses (like when he passed on some of his own memos on interactions with Trump to a friend to be leaked to the press) should earn him prison time:

Next up, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch who, according to Trump, Comey threw “under the bus”:

Trump denied he asked Comey for his loyalty as the former FBI director claims.

“I hardly even knew this guy,” Trump explained.

And finally, the president gave Comey a new nickname, “Slippery James Comey,” while calling him the
WORST FBI Director in history.”
