White House: Trump Saw Bits of Comey Interview

Monday, 16 April 2018 01:12 PM

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says President Donald Trump saw "bits and pieces" of the ABC News interview with former FBI Director James Comey but didn't watch it all.

Sanders carried on a war of words between Trump and Comey as the president flew to Florida. She asserted that Comey has "proven to be dishonest." Comey said in the interview that Trump is "morally unfit" for office.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017.

Trump on Monday renewed his attacks on 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 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.
