Comey said that the first and foremost reason to believe that the allegation is that “the President is constantly bringing it up with me to deny it.” He explained to Jake Tapper that “In my experience as an investigator, it’s not an ironclad rule, but it’s a striking thing when someone constantly brings up something to deny that you didn’t ask about.” He then added “I think it’s unlikely, but I think it’s possible.”
What exactly does that mean? It is unlikely but you decided to emphasize it on a book tour. It is also possible that Trump is the last of the Romanov line. Is that worth mentioning?
Comey’s second reason that he was “struck” by how Trump “wouldn’t criticize Vladimir Putin even in private, which struck me as odd.”
So that is it. Comey, who portrays himself as the consummate professional, is selling books by enticing readers about the possibility that Trump held “Golden Shower” moments with prostitutions and is under the thumb of Moscow. Is that what Comey means by his giving America’s back “ethical leadership”?
