Comey defends releasing Trump memos

Comey defends releasing Trump memos

The former national security adviser under President Clinton pleaded guilty to the unauthorized removal and retention of classified material from the National Archives.

Comey was sacked in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether anyone close to the president colluded with Russian intelligence agents to influence the 2016 presidential election.

When an audience member asked Comey about connections between President Trump and Russia, Comey said, "I was very struck that he was reluctant to criticize [Putin] in private".

"We were in Russian Federation at the final for the Miss Universe, and then a man approached me and grabbed my hand, drew me to himself and asked, 'Who are you?'" according to Us Weekly.

Comey says that he thought at that moment that he was going be executed.

When the former Director was asked if he believed the President possesses the moral and mental capacities to effectively lead the armed forces, he said: "I don't believe he's morally fit to be president of the United States".

Evacuation Order Lifted Friday Following Superior Refinery Explosion
Residents of Superior have been encouraged to remain outside their homes after the evacuation for another couple of hours. No fatalities were reported, and all employees and hundreds of contractors working at the refinery were accounted for.


The allegations about Mr Trump's night in Moscow stemmed from an opposition research dossier compiled by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, and which was later handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He breached the rules of good ethics by coming out publicly and denouncing President Trump as a liar. I think it's wrong for ABC to air such trash. "We should root for our President - that also doesn't mean we should fail to hold him accountable - especially when he threatens our core values".

But Comey argued that the "concern is not unconventional leadership", but maintains that the way the President threatens USA values.

In the July 2016 interview on Hungarian television, Sarka said that Trump invited her to his hotel room at the Miss Universe after-party, even leaving his business card with her. I was attracted that character matters and values matter most of all.

On Wednesday night, he gave a glimpse into an episode in his own past while he was a college student that he finds troubling. He added, "I handled the memos appropriately".

I did not watch. Some things I just laughed at.
