Comey said, “And I don’t do it lightly. And I’m not trying to, by that, by the way, suggest that President Trump is out breaking legs and shaking down but instead, what I’m talking about is that leadership culture constantly comes back to me when I think about my experience with the trump administration.”
Later he destroyed Trump’s claim that the Obama DOJ covered for Clinton:

Comey said, “The FBI drove this investigation and we did it in a competent and independent way. I would bet my life on that.”
This interview is already bad news for Trump, and the Comey nedia blitz is beginning.
