Fired FBI Director James Comey wasn’t too happy after President Trump called out the actions of McCabe and Rosenstein as “treasonous” on Monday.
Trump unleashed a tweetstorm on Monday slamming “treasonous” McCabe and Rosenstein then followed up with a bathroom-themed swipe at McCabe and ‘Leakin’ James Comey.
Monday night, President Trump trolled Comey and tweeted, “Remember this, Andrew McCabe didn’t go to the bathroom without the approval of Leakin’ James Comey!”
Comey was triggered by Trump’s tweet and about an hour later fired off a holier-than-thou response to the president for dubbing him the Deep State FBI ringleader.
JAMES COMEY: “Every time you assault and stereotype a person, you’ve ripped the social fabric. Every time you see that person deeply and make him or her feel known, you’ve woven it.” David Brooks (2/18 NY Times) is right that we all need to be weavers if we are to heal our beloved country.
President Trump gave the former FBI Director the nickname ‘Leakin James Comey’ because he leaked classified memos of conversations he had with Trump in order to prompt a special counsel.
Trump’s tweetstorm on Monday was in response to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s “60 Minutes” interview where he admitted DAG Rod Rosenstein was discussing wearing a wire to record President Trump to remove him via the 25th Amendment.
The New York Times first reported on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s plot to wear a wire and oust Trump with the 25th Amendment in September.
DAG Rosenstein began plotting Trump’s removal shortly after FBI Director Comey was fired, The New York Times reported, citing memos penned by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
Rosenstein fiercely denies he plotted to remove President Trump from office.
The president fired off two tweets on Monday using the words “treason” and “treasonous” to describe the actions of the coup plotters as he ramps up his fight against the Deep State.
