Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey has declined an invitation to testify before the Senate, after what has been a long and interesting day for himself.
In an ongoing battle between Comey and the President, Donald Trump struck a seemingly mighty blow via Twitter today when he proclaimed that the former FBI chief should be worried about whether not recordings exist of conversations between the two.
Whether Trump’s tweet was a direct threat at Comey has yet to be determined, however, the incompetent FBI has-been was none too eager to keep yapping in Washington.
“Former FBI Director James Comey has declined an invitation to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week, a spokesman for the committee confirmed to Fox News Friday.
“Comey had been invited to testify before a closed session in the wake of his controversial firing by President Trump earlier this week, but declined to do so.
“Trump fired Comey Tuesday after receiving a recommendation to do so by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, citing his handling of the Clinton email probe last year. However, Trump later clarified that he would have fired Comey even without Rosenstein’s recommendation.”
Donald Trump has so far lived up to his anticipated lack of conventionality, not only by using Twitter to cut out the spin of the mainstream media, but by being quick to act in some of Washington’s more deliberate situations. In the firing of Comey, many on the left predicted further implosion of the Trump administration surrounding the monumental shift.
Instead, we’ve been treated to an extremely proficient example of our Commander in Chief’s guile.
