The cloud of suspicion over the Trump campaign colluding with FBI director James Comey to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is getting bigger and darker. And what president Trump just did during a White House event on Sunday is only adding to that suspicion.
In the video below, President Donald Trump blows a kiss at FBI Director James Comey, apparently thanking him for helping him win the election.
“He’s become more famous than me,” Trump said as he called to Comey and shook his hand. Trump also gave the embattled FBI director a couple of pats on the back.
Less than two weeks before the election, Comey sent a letter to lawmakers saying the FBI was reviewing emails that “appear to be pertinent to the investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Then, just days before voters headed to the polls, Comey cleared her ― but many Democrats believe the move helped cost Clinton the election.
“Had he not written that letter a week or so before the election, she would have won,” former Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told CNN last month. “We would have picked up at least two more Senate seats.”
