In Delusional Tweet, Trump Claims ‘Vindication’ From ‘Leaker’ Comey. Gets EPIC Response

Donald Trump got his small fingers to work Friday morning by firing off a tweet claiming “total and complete vindication” and accusing former FBI Director James Comey of being a “leaker” as a response to Comey’s anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!”, a delusional Trump tweeted almost 24 hours after Comey’s first public comments since his firing last month.

Comey said he believed Trump terminated him over the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The former Law Enforcement official revealed that he authorized a close friend to share with the press a memo describing a meeting with Trump in which the president allegedly asked him to let go of the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel,” Comey said.

Trump’s team blasted Comey’s remarks as “leak” and categorically denied that Trump ever “directed or suggested” that Comey stop investigating anyone.

“Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the president,” Kasowitz said.

Comey said one of the reasons he felt compelled to speak out was the administration’s shifting rationale for his firing. Originally pointing the finger at his handling of the Hillary Clinton email server investigation, the White House later said Comey had mismanaged the FBI and lost the faith of rank-and-file agents.

Trump also told NBC News that Comey was fired over the Russia probe.

“The administration chose to defame me and, more importantly, the FBI by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly run,” Comey told the Senate Intelligence panel. “Those were lies, plain and simple.”

As expected, Twitter users fired back at the fraudulent president:
