Donald Trump’s obsession over former FBI Director James Comey and Robert Mueller is beginning to raise eyebrows as he continues to “rant and brood” over the two and the Russia investigation.
According to an Axios report, Trump went behind closed doors to rant about Comey.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked on Tuesday night if Trump “would encourage” the Department of Justice to consider prosecuting Comey for leaking memos of his meetings with Trump.
“That’s not the president’s role,” Sanders said. “That’s the job of the Department of Justice, and something they should certainly look at. … I think if there’s ever a moment where we feel someone’s broken the law, particularly if they’re the head of the FBI, I think that’s something that certainly should be looked at.
“His actions were improper and likely could have been illegal,” she added.
According to Axios “Trump tells aides and visitors that the probe now being run by special counsel Bob Mueller is a witch hunt and that Comey was a leaker.”
Trump’s constant worry has raised the suspicion that Russia did interfere with the 2016 presidential election and that his campaign had ties to the Kremlin.
