BOMBSHELL: Trump Accuses Leaker Comey of Trying to Hold Scandalous Dossier Over His Head
President Trump held an interview this week with The New York Times.
The embattled president accused former FBI Director Comey of threatening to hold the discredited Russian dossier over his head.
The dossier of bizarre allegations was created by a far left group to damage President Trump during the election.
He claims that FBI Director James Comey tried to hold the salacious dossier over his head, in order to gain “leverage” over him. It had previously been reported that when administration officials briefed the president at Trump Tower in January, Comey pulled him aside and told him about the details of the now infamous dossier which included unverified reports of Trump’s sexual encounters while in Russia.
Why did Comey bring this up? Trump has a new theory.
From The New York Times report:
In the interview, Mr. Trump said he believes Mr. Comey told him about the dossier to implicitly make clear he had something to hold over the president. “In my opinion, he shared it so that I would think he had it out there,” Mr. Trump said. As leverage? “Yeah, I think so,’’ Mr. Trump said. “In retrospect.”
The president dismissed the assertions in the dossier: “When he brought it to me, I said this is really, made-up junk. I didn’t think about any of it. I just thought about man, this is such a phony deal.”
