Donald Trump tore into James Comey again this morning, this time over the fired FBI director’s acknowledgement that he took Hillary Clinton’s status as frontrunner in the presidential election into account when he told lawmakers about the reopening of her email investigation.

Trump said that Comey and his deputy Andrew McCabe, also fired from the FBI, had ‘committed many crimes’ during their tenures at the law enforcement agency. Both came to a bitter end in the Trump administration.

‘Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!’ the president tweeted.

The president’s tweet offered a glimpse into his mindset the morning after Comey’s first stop on a publicity tour for his tell-all book ‘A Higher Loyalty.’ Comey said in the interview that Trump was ‘morally unfit’ to sit in the Oval Office.

Trump dodged reporters asking him an hour later if he’d seen the hour-long special that ran on ABC News on Sunday evening. However, his tweet touched on a revealing discussion that Comey had with interviewer George Stephanopoulos about his actions in the Clinton email case.

Two Republican senators discovered last year that Comey began to draft a statement on the outcome of the Clinton probe before the FBI had interviewed her.

The lawmakers have skewered Comey for it, saying it was inappropriate for him to come to a conclusion on her innocence months before the end of the federal investigation into her handling of classified information.

‘Here’s my reaction. And the reason I smile a little bit is anybody who’s actually done investigations knows that if you’ve been investigating something for almost a year and you don’t have a general sense of where it’s likely to end up, you should be fired because you’re incompetent,’ Comey on Sunday evening responded.

The former Department of Justice official defended the action as routine. He said that prosecutors and investigators also draft indictments before they finish probing their subjects.
