President Trump says former FBI Director James Comey is an "untruthful slime ball" who should be prosecuted for leaking classified information. Trump tweets:
"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and.........untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst “botch jobs” of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey."
Trump is reacting to Comey's new book, which blasts Trump for among other things being unethical and "untethered to truth."
