President Trump has accused former FBI director, James Comey of drafting a letter which exonerated his fierce opponent and former Democrats presidential candidate in the last election, Hillary Clinton, from the then investigation into her use of private email servers during her time as Secretary of State.

The president recollected the failure of Comey to interview every concerned party in the scandal including Clinton herself, and therefore wishes the Justice Department revisits the matter with the phrase: “where is Justice Dept”.

Trump who fired Comey in June, accused the former FBI chief of lying and shielding Hillary Clinton from prosecution – something the president would have loved.

“Wow, FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete. Many..”

“…people not interviewed, including Clinton herself. Comey stated under oath that he didn’t do this-obviously a fix? Where is Justice Dept?”

“As it has turned out, James Comey lied and leaked and totally protected Hillary Clinton. He was the best thing that ever happened to her!”

But in a previous interview, Clinton had also accused Comey of using the investigation to impugn her character and hindered her chances of occupying the White House.
