President Donald Trump slammed former FBI director James Comey in a Friday morning tweet.
Comey is "either very sick or very dumb," Trump tweeted.
The president's tweet comes after Comey contested Trump's claim that he leaked classified information when he released a memo that detailed his conversations with Trump.
"He is just wrong," Comey told Bret Baier on Fox News.
"Facts really do matter … that memo was unclassified then. It’s still unclassified,” Comey told Fox News, adding that the memo is in his book "A Higher Loyalty," which the FBI cleared before publication.
The president's comment, “remember sailor,” appears to refer to Kristian Saucier, a machinist’s mate on the nuclear submarine USS Alexandria, who was charged with taking photos of classified spaces on the submarine. Trump pardoned Saucier in March, The Hill reported.
