Trump criticises ex-FBI chief Comey in new twitter tirade

Press Trust of India  |  Washington 

In a new storm, today lashed out at former FBI James Comey, who he had fired last year citing his inability to lead America's top law enforcement agency.

Trump last year abruptly removed who was overseeing a criminal probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the to influence the 2016 that was won by him.

Comey's explosive book, which is apparently highly critical of Trump, will hit the bookshelves next week.

"Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI in history, by far!" Trump said in a tweet.

Refuting the contents of the book, excerpts of which have appeared in the American press, Trump said he never asked for personal loyalty.

"I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His 'memos' are self serving and FAKE!" he said.

"Unbelievably, states that Polls, where (Clinton) was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Email probe.

"In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball" tweeted the

"The big questions in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn't they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe's $700,000 & more?" Trump asked.

"Comey throws AG Lynch 'under the bus!' Why can't we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch? Was she promised a seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary. No golf and grandkids talk (give all a break)!" tweeted Trump.

Trump recently accused Comey of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to under oath.
