Anyone following President Donald Trump’s Twitter account over the last several days witnessed a flurry of Tweets regarding former FBI director James Comey and his memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.
The big questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?

That includes Comey himself.
“That is not normal,” Comey said during an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America.
That is not OK. First of all, he’s just making stuff up. But, most importantly, the president of the United States is calling for the imprisonment of a private citizen, as he’s done for a whole lot of people who criticize him. That is not acceptable in this country.”
The president’s Tweets indicate a lack of understanding and complete disrespect for the rule of law, according to Comey.
I hope people read the book and see why the rule of law is such an important value in this country, and key to that is that the president doesn’t get to decide who goes to jail.”
