WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is renewing his attacks on James Comey after the former FBI director’s scathing interview on ABC.
Trump tweeted Monday that Comey drafted an exoneration of Hillary Clinton long before he talked to her as part of an investigation into her email practices. He labelled Comey “disgruntled” and accused him and others of having “committed many crimes.”
Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!

Comey said in the interview broadcast Sunday night that Trump is “morally unfit” for office.
Referring to what Trump called a premature Clinton exoneration, Comey said that after nine or 10 months he had a “clear picture” of the investigation into Clinton’s email practices and it’s common to draft statements before a probe is complete.
Trump again accused Comey of lying to Congress. There is no indication he is under investigation for doing so.
