Fired FBI Director, James Comey said in a prepared opening statement released Wednesday that he didn’t keep detailed memos on his conversations with Obama like he did with Donald Trump.

Comey said he only spoke with Obama twice during his presidency, but talked to Trump nine times within four months of his.
He explained why he documented the conversations he had with Trump.
“I felt compelled to document my first conversation with the President-Elect in a memo,” Comey writes. “To ensure accuracy, I began to type it on a laptop in an FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting. Creating written records immediately after one-on-one conversations with Mr. Trump was my practice from that point forward.”
“This had not been my practice in the past,” he continued. “I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) — once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016. In neither of those circumstances did I memorialize the discussions. I can recall nine one-on-one conversations with President Trump in four months — three in person and six on the phone.”
“I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with FBI senior leadership,” Comey said in his prepared remarks.
Why didn’t Comey document his conversations with Obama? Comey continues to prove to the public that President Trump’s decision to fire him was the right thing to do. Comey is beyond corrupt.
It’s no surprise that a lawsuit was filed against Comey late Monday night by Dennis Montgomery alleging he provided overwhelming evidence to the FBI of illegal spying on Americans and they covered it up.
