“I Don’t Do Sneaky Things, I Don’t Leak, I Don’t Do Weasel Moves” Comey Pens in Memo He Later Leaked to Liberal Media
Redacted memos written by disgraced former FBI Director James Comey were published online on Thursday evening.
Comey penned seven memos stemming from nine conversations he had with President Trump during his time at the FBI.
In a memo dated January 28th 2017, Comey recalls a dinner he had with President Trump in the Green Room at the White House.
Comey says Trump told him there were about 20 people who wanted his job as FBI Director.
Trump allegedly told Comey he heard great things about him but he would understand if he wanted to walk away from his post given the firestorm over Hillary’s investigation.
Comey responded by telling Trump he ‘could fire him at any time he wished’ but he wanted to finish out his term because he found directorship very rewarding.
Here’s the kicker…Comey told Trump he could count on him to always tell the truth.
“I said I don’t do sneaky things, I don’t leak, I don’t do weasel moves,” Comey claimed in his memo only to leak the memos to the liberal media a few months later.
Comey admitted in a testimony he gave contents of his memos to a trusted friend to leak to the New York Times in order to prompt a special counsel.
