President Trump has publicly condemned James Comey for ‘rigging’ the Hillary Clinton email investigation while he was director for the FBI.
Reacting to reports that Comey prematurely drafted a statement clearing Hillary Clinton two months before she was interviewed by FBI agents, the President declared the entire legal system “rigged.”
Breitbart.com reports: “Wow, looks like James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton long before the investigation was over…and so much more,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “A rigged system!”

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Republican senators revealed transcripts of an Office of Special Council interview with Comey’s Chief of Staff and other FBI officials.
“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that’s no way to run an investigation,” the letter from Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham read. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also commented on the story in Thursday’s press briefing.
“If it is as accurate as they say it is, that would certainly give cause and reason that Jim Comey was not the right person to lead the FBI,” she said.
