Comey 'Lied in Congress,' Trump Charges After Interview Airs

Ratcliff's remarks came Monday in an interview on Fox News. "President Obama is a very smart man who understands the law very well", wrote Comey. "To this day, I don't know why he spoke about the case publicly and seemed to absolve her before a final determination was made".

During the much-anticipated television interview that marks the official start of a nationwide tour to promote his new memoir "A Higher Loyalty", Comey acknowledged that even on Election Night, he expected Clinton would defeat Trump. "But call it a matter.' And I said, 'Why would I do that?' And she said, 'Just call it a matter, '" he added.

She says she rose above politics throughout the email investigation, and never discussed it with anyone from the Clinton campaign or the Democratic National Committee. He later misled investigators about the leak, according to the report.

In response, Lynch said in a statement, similarly to Comey, that the two of them have known each other for 30 years.

President Donald Trump dismissed former FBI Director James Comey's attacks on Monday by claiming Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had "committed many crimes!" Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Comey's May 2017 testimony when he told Grassley that he had never been an anonymous source to the news media. "That's no way to run an investigation".
