Christie, now an ABC contributor, served as the U.S attorney for New Jersey from 2002 to 2008. Comey said an unverified dossier assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele had no impact on triggering the investigation.
"It's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".
Trump's latest Twitter broadside was part of a series of attacks by Republicans and the White House against Comey, who they have attempted to discredit and paint as a disgruntled employee. Trump called him "the WORST FBI Director in history" and a "slimeball". "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!"
Trump chose to fire Comey over the objections of his top advisers at the time, including chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Trump's move to fire Comey led to the appointment of former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller as special counsel investigating Russia's election interference and whether Trump obstructed justice.
"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe".
"The norm is, 'If you can avoid it, you take no action that might have an impact on an election, ' and I can't see a door that's labeled, 'No action here, '" Comey told Stephanopoulos.
To start with, Comey has strayed too far into barely concealed hatred and mockery, commenting on Trump's hair, skin tone, hand size and so on. "Even though our relationship is becoming strained, there's no way I'd be fired ... that's a insane thing to do", Comey said.
The Atlantic: James Comey Is No Hero - "The most damning revelations in the published accounts of the memoir, however, are not Comey's condemnations of Trump, but his disclosures of his own thinking when he made the decisions that helped put the current president in office".
"A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person's not fit to be President of the United States, on moral grounds", Comey told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an interview that aired Sunday evening. Comey answered, "it's possible".
Interested in Donald Trump? "I don't know", Comey said. He said the public was "duty bound" to vote Trump out of office in the next election. There is no indication Comey is under investigation for doing either. "He had jeopardized the Department of Justice's credibility in the investigation". He should donate his earnings to civic organizations working to protect ordinary people here and around the world who are suffering under President Trump's agenda.
