Comey questions Trump's credibility and House Republican report

"I was concerned about his commitment to truth telling, based on some things I'd see during the campaign" Comey explained.

Comey has been outspoken over his thoughts on Trump, writing in his recently released book A Higher Loyalty that he found the president was inappropriate in his interactions with the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.

The more we learn about how these massive investigations were started, the more they look so corrupted that this entire investigation now could now qualify as the fruits of a poisonous tree, a doctrine first adopted by Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter as the only way to prevent government agents from abusing the rights of citizens and benefitting [sic] from those actions. Nunes was criticized for being too close to the White House.

The South Carolina Republican also believes Comey was part of an "effort at the FBI" to give former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton "a pass", regarding an investigation into her use of a private email server during her time at the State Department. Comey, at his Senate testimony in June, told Sen.

"Imagine Obama waking up in the morning and tweeting somebody he doesn't like should be in jail", Comey said. "So Jim and I talked about the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and he and I literally - literally - finished my sentence when I said, there's a fine distinction, Jim, between telling somebody "just so you know" and telling somebody 'just so you know, and don't mess with us.' And I was concerned that the president-elect was going to hear the latter and not the former message and Jim understood that, and I think he did his best". Comey's "A Higher Loyalty" came out last week. Libby was convicted in 2007 of lying to a grand jury and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials who were investigating the leak of a Central Intelligence Agency officer's identity. "My sense was - I didn't get a sense he knew about those".

Comey and Lynch should be brought before Congress and put under oath to "resolve this conflict", Graham said.
