With the Mueller report concluded and clearing President Donald Trump, former FBI Director James Comey is forced to confront the reality that it may be his turn to be in the crosshairs.
During an interview with Christiane Amanpour on CNN, former FBI Director James Comey spoke out in response to Trump calling for an investigation into how the Mueller probe got started.
“I don’t fear it personally. I fear it as a citizen,” Comey claimed. “Right? Investigate what? Investigate that investigations were conducted? What would be the crime you’d be investigating? So it’s a terrible cycle to start.”
I probably would be terrible, if you happen to be one of the main individuals responsible for beginning the treasonous investigation.
Speaking to reporters gathered at the White House, Trump said, “I hope they now go and take a look at the origins of the investigation, the beginnings of the investigation,” before adding, “You look at the origin of the investigation, where it started, how it started, who started it.”
Comey was probably unnerved when Trump implicated the former FBI director by name. “Whether it‘s [former FBI Deputy Cirector Andrew] McCabe or Comey or a lot of them, where does it go? How high up in the White House did it go?” Trump asked.
Currenty Comey keeping up his bravado about the situation challenging opponents to question him. “Me, personally, ask me questions,” Comey said. “Go ahead. I would like to answer them in the daylight, if I could.”
Well see how long the bluster lasts when an investigation actually begins.
