WaPo: 'Infuriated' Trump Will Counterpunch With Live Comey Tweets

President Donald Trump is itching to punch back at former FBI Director James Comey, The Washington Post reported.

The president might do so Thursday during Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee using his favorite method of communication: Twitter. According to two senior White House officials, Trump might take to social media to offer sharp commentary during the hearing.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told the Post that Trump is "infuriated at a deep-gut, personal level" with the media for covering the Russia story, and for praising Comey after Trump's decision to fire him.

Former campaign aide and longtime confidante Roger Stone told the Post that Trump would not take Comey's testimony without hitting back.

"He's not going to take an attack by James Comey laying down," he said. "Trump is a fighter, he's a brawler, and he's the best counterpuncher in American politics."

Trump's official schedule is clear before his first event at 12:30 p.m. ET, but White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters the president had a very busy day ahead of him. 

Comey led the charge in the agency's investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election before Trump fired him. But news of his testimony has been front and center with reports saying Comey will refute Trump's blanket claim he was told he was not under investigation.
