Donald Trump: James Comey ‘the Best Thing’ That Happened to Clinton

26

President Trump on Tuesday said that FBI Director James Comey was the “best thing” that ever happened to his 2016 Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

“FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds!” Trump tweeted.

“The phony … Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?” he continued.

From the Hill:

The president’s remarks came after Clinton earlier Tuesday blamed her loss in the 2016 election on Comey and WikiLeaks’ publication of Democratic party emails.

“‘If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your president,’ she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women event in New York, referencing the day before Comey sent a letter informing Congress that the FBI had discovered new emails that appeared pertinent to an investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified material.

“‘I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off,’ Clinton said.

“‘And the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive. And so we overcame a lot. We overcame an enormous barrage of negativity, of false equivalency, and so much else,’ she added.
Comey will be back in the spotlight Wednesday morning, when he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

Comey is due to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Russia’s election meddling later this week.

    He won fair and square. End of story. She on the other hand dodged the press whenever possible, only agreed to interviews if she could control the questions. Our president openly courted the public every single day, he spent a LOT of time in the heartland a place that Clinton barely even acknowledged. She lost as a result. Why won’t this woman go away?

  • Ed Heavner

    ….and of course the meeting between Lynch and B. Clinton is what set up Comey being the fall guy. Something H. Clinton will never address. H. Clinton will go to her grave bitterly P.O. that she wasn’t given the job despite her 30 years of political baggage. I wish this woman would go away and sulk in private.

    It’s incredible after all these months how these Democrats still can’t live up to their defeat. God help us all if they ever recover!

  • Dave Mc

    She was fully entitled…to her defeat.

  • Mark Steiner

    Now that the President has identified the role of Comey – time to have Justice go after Hillary, Rice, Obama and others for high crimes and misdemeanors committed in the Obama presidency.

  • NotTheMama

    Thus acknowledging that Comey did not do his job. He should not still be head of the FBI.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    …millions and millions of Russians secretly came across the Mexican Border and got a hold of ballots and voted for Trump….

    • Mahou Shoujo

      That is the democrat’s story and they are sticking to it.

      • Ron Cole

        That mass would stick to a mirror ceiling.

    • Mark Steiner

      That’s it! I knew the Russians were involved in some sinister way …

  • Ron Cole

    Why is komerade komey still in orriface?

  • JacksonPearson

    To the democrats/Progs/Commies:
    Speak very slowly
    D.O.N.A.L.D. T.R.U.M.P. I.S. M.Y. P.R.E.S.I.D.E.N.T.

    As a Western European I am a Trump man. I reckon he (Mr. President Trump) will be one of the greatest.

  • Tatonka

    She’s a sore loser if there ever was one!!,……Just imagine having that bitch for president!!

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Typical narcissist. It’s not my fault I’m dishonest and corrupt, it’s someone else’s fault for pointing it out!

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    If Trump thinks this about Comey, why doesn’t he take steps to insure Comey is fired from the F-I-B?

  • Chris Wolf

    This is what we’re paying Trump for.
    He can’t turn a cruise ship around in a couple of months.
    He’s making steady progress on all fronts.
    And he’s our only chance, so we have to stick with him, no matter what!

    Communist scumbag seditionist coward David Axelrod says: “It takes a lot of work to lose to Donald Trump.”
    That may be true, when: 1) Trump’s first ever political campaign was running for President of the United States and, 2) He’s not running in the bright light of four years of the bold, courageous, inspirational and good natured American leadership we’re seen from him thus far.
    Emphasis on the “American,” contrasted with the stench left over from Axelrod’s most ignominious failure and shame name: obama.

    She lost, and it is good for everybody that she did, including herself.

    President Trump when Sessions is staffed up, CHARGE her and LOCK HER UP.
    Sessions has fired all Obama hold overs and can’t even get an ASSISTANT through the approval process. DEMS are obstructing and slow walking everything. Jeff Session has no one under him to help him till that changes.

  • Dorrie

    Trump should have fired Comey 100 days ago!!

  • Drew the Infidel

    Isn’t it strange? The commiecrats keep harping on Russian interference in our election but no one breathes a word about Obhammud tapping Angela Merkel’s cell phone or sending a bunch of political provocateurs to Israel in an attempt to sabotage Netanyahu’s re-election bid.

  • Drew the Infidel

    One of the things I like about Trump and one of my many reasons for voting for him was his sense of establishing priorities and being keenly organized. I use the same strategy, when it comes to your daily schedule you “go to bed knowing instead of waking up wondering” and “use Sunday to prepare for Monday”. Like the old Alka-Seltzer ads, “Try it, you’ll like it.”

  • sovereigntyofone

    Had Comey of the FBI done his job, Hillary Clinton would be serving time in Ft. Leavenworth prison for the rest of her life.
    Just my 2 cents worth.

  • iprazhm

    I’m willing to bet that there are many Congressmen and women who are only outside a jail cell because of the illegal cover ups of dirty FBI Director James Comey. That’s why they let him walk away scott free.
