And to think he feels he is deserving of an apology. Wow, Comey, get over yourself!

It Seems Trump Was Right To Fire James Comey
Editorial of The New York Sun | August 29, 2019

The most important point to draw from the Justice Department’s report on James Comey is that President Trump was right to cashier him as director of the FBI. The department declined to prosecute the ex-director. The department’s inspector general made clear, though, that Mr. Comey lacks the judgment to safeguard the kind of sensitive information that the Bureau needs to keep safe in order to properly “dispatch” its duties.
That strikes us as devastating. The report focuses on Mr. Comey’s sharing of sensitive memos with persons outside the department, among them his lawyers. He shared some with a friend for onpassing to the New York Times. The IG found Mr. Comey at times failed “to immediately alert the FBI to the unauthorized disclosure of classified information” and was less than completely forthcoming in testimony to the Senate.
Mr. Comey, the IG report concludes, set a “dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees” and thousands of former ones who “similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.” He should have adhered to department and FBI policies if he wanted a special counsel appointed. Instead he disclosed sensitive investigative information “in order to achieve a personally desired outcome.” It Seems Trump Was Right To Fire James Comey
jenniel,

funny how libbies love the guy, when he may be the reason Hilary got sent to the showers. Seriously, how many votes did she lose when he publically announced, seconds before the election, that he was reopening the email server investigation against her.

Translation - I have not read the Mueller report.

Nor apparently the Comey memos in which Trump asked him to let the "Flynn" thing go

Which is just another example of obstruction of justice.
The Mueller Report is dead and buried on the dung-heap of history. It's a joke.

And, whether Trump asked Comey to let the "Flynn" thing go is pure conjecture. It's Comey's word vs Trump. And, just like always, you will believe scumbag Comey over the POTUS.

Mueller report, not a joke. And the Flynn thing is not conjecture.

Yeah, Comey was such a scumbag when he dropped that last minute - 10 days before the election bombshell on Clinton. I'm guessing you liked him when he did that.

Right ,Wrong or indifferent ,he had the RIGHT to fire Comey. Even if the FBI had been investigating a Chinese plot to nuke NYC , Trump could have replaced Comey. For any reason or NO reason.

the Weissman Report. Hmmm... Let me remind you of my FAVORITE. "There is no evidence of any conspiracy between the Trump Campaign and Russia" . Did you forget that part? Again? (snicker)

Mueller report -Many people within the Trump campaign accepted assistance from Russia (remember the famous Trump Tower meeting as one example)?

Mueller just could not find a defentive link that Trump and his cohorts knew what they were doing was illegal at the time

In other words, they were too stupid to know.

On Flynn, it's Trump vs Comey's word. They were the only two involved. So, it is conjecture.

Comey is a scumbag for a lot of reasons. There will be more coming out.

Stay tuned.

And which one is the pathological liar??

Oh, that would be Trump.

And of course, he did his old "stand=by"

The memos were fake.

Again, it's Comey's word vs Trump's. That's all you got and it may be enough for you, but in the real world it's not definitive.
