“If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we’ll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility.”
The Republican National Committee published a website that will fact check a book by former FBI James Comey. From Fox News:
The RNC’s new website is www.LyinComey.com, where the GOP plans to fact check Comey’s book and use “rapid response” to highlight any “misstatements” or “contradictions” in it, according to an RNC official.
“James Comey’s publicity tour is a self-serving attempt to make money and rehabilitate his own image,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said. “Comey is a liar and a leaker, and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing. If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we’ll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility.”
Right now, the website prominently features quotes from Democrats about losing trust with him and how he had no credibility, including one from failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The link takes you to a page on the GOP website that lists numerous times Democrats criticized Comey. Of course, it includes excerpts from Hillary’s book, What Happened. Don’t forget, she placed some blame on Comey for losing to Trump:
Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Wrote In Her Book That Comey Had Badly Overstepped His Bounds. “‘My first instinct was that my campaign should hit back and explain that Mr. Comey had badly overstepped his bounds,’ she wrote in the book, her attempt to make sense of her electoral defeat by Donald J. Trump. But, she said, her campaign advisers talked her out of it, convincing her that it was better ‘to just let it go and try to move on.'” (Mark Landler, “Hillary Clinton, In Book, Regrets Not Striking Back At James,” The New York Times , 09/07/17)
- Clinton Said That “But For The Letter He Wrote On October 28, I Would Have Won.” “A moderator at the event asked Clinton about Comey’s upcoming book, and what questions people should be asking Comey about his role in the election. ‘I’ve never spoken to him. I’ve never met him. I’ve never kissed him,’ Clinton said. ‘I think the analyses that have been done by a lot of independent folks like Nate Silver have basically said what I believe to be the case: but for the letter he wrote on October 28, I would have won.'” (NTK Staff, “Hillary Bashes Comey: ‘But For The Letter He Wrote…I Would Have Won,'” NTK Network , 04/04/18)
One fact check goes after Comey’s testimony when he said: “that he never posed as an anonymous source to leak information to the press.” The website includes a news report from CNN about how Comey admitted that he asked a friend “to share the content of the memo with a reporter” because he thought it would force an appointment of a special counsel.
Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership comes out on April 17. He will promote his book first on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos in a pre-recorded interview. An excerpt shows Comey calling Trump a “mob boss.”
After that appearance, Comey will attend a CNN town hall moderated by Anderson Cooper. Then he will speak with Bret Baier at Fox News.DONATE
