Well, it seems Hillary Clinton’s griping about FBI Director James Comey and the Russians didn’t go unnoticed at the White House. President Trump took to Twitter to remind the former first lady that if it weren’t for Comey, she would be possibly facing charges. The president made a similar remark back in April, where he said the FBI Director saved her campaign (and possibly her life according to Trump) by reading out numerous instances of gross negligence regarding handling sensitive government documents, but decided not to press charges.
He also reiterated that the Russia/Trump story was an excuse used by Democrats as a crutch to avoid accepting that he just beat them fair and square. Now, the Kremlin did have an interference campaign that was executed by state-funded media and social media trolls, but that’s not an election hack. Moreover, both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have yet to find solid evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian intelligence to tilt the election. The slew of fake news stories also didn’t play a pivotal role.
FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds! The phony...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 3, 2017
...Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 3, 2017
