Why does it seem these people can’t wait until Trump leaves office to write a book? Why does it have to be now? What’s the rush? Are these people hard up for money? Are they trying to purchase a second home?
Priebus calling out Trump’s relationship with Comey doesn’t damage the president. Comey should have been fired in July of 2016 for violating his oath of office and been charged with obstruction of justice. He fabricated a reason not to recommend Hillary Clinton charged with criminal acts when she flagrantly violated national-security laws and committed perjury.
I can see why Trump considered his actions like a soap opera.

But in a newly published interview, former chief of staff Reince Priebus said Trump was considering firing the FBI director from “Day One,” weary of his “soap opera” approach to investigations.
“He had thought about getting rid of Comey weeks before the inauguration,” Priebus told journalist Chris Whipple for an updated version of his book, “The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency.” “It wasn’t just a subject that came up out of the blue. The president had been wrestling with this from Day One.”
Fox News obtained an advance copy of the book, due out in early March. An adapted passage of “The Gatekeepers” was published last week in Vanity Fair, but did not include the Comey comments.
Priebus told Whipple that Trump’s issue with Comey had more to do with his alleged showboating than the Russia investigation (though the book notes it was Comey who briefed the new president on the controversial dossier containing salacious and unverified allegations against him).
“I’m just telling you I know what he thinks,” Priebus said. “It’s not the fact that they’re having an investigation on the Russia stuff—although he hates that. But what he hated even more is that he believes Comey takes a normal investigation and turns it into a daily soap opera.”
The problem with his indictment is that liberal news organizations like The Atlantic and BuzzFeed published very similar reports on the Russian efforts several years ago. Mueller’s indictment charged 13 Russians for using a company based in St. Petersburg called the Internet Research Agency. The indictment says they organized and launched rallies that were both for and against Trump after he won the presidential election.
Either way, Priebus is going to spill whatever he can I guess to get some funds. I wonder if the WH is going to slam him for a few things he’s saying? SOUND OFF in the comment section what you think about this information and SHARE this on Facebook/Twitter.
