"It didn't dawn on me, originally, that there might be corroboration for our conversation [there] might be a tape, my judgment was I needed get that out into the public square", Comey said. He said they've gone so far to the left in terms of opposing him that "they're bad right now for the country". Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!
Legal experts said his tweets could pose legal hurdles as his lawyers try to convince the Supreme Court to reinstate the revised immigration order.
Still, the president will surely continue to go on Twitter and enjoy the honest, unfiltered nature of the medium.
He added, "Help us help you".
It took only mere minutes for James Comey to call one of his meetings with President Trump "very disturbing" and to accuse his administration of trying to "defame" him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation with "lies". In the wake of the London Bridge attack on Saturday, Trump used Twitter to repeatedly criticize London Mayor Sadiq Khan for comments that Trump had taken out of context.
Cornell Law Professor Jens David Ohlin said that he understood "why the Republicans would want to focus on "hope" versus 'direct, ' but I don't think it makes any difference".
Critics pointed to various falsehoods and misleading statements Trump has put out via Twitter.
"This is not a time to lash out, to incite fear, or to use tragedy and terror for political gain", Clinton said at a fundraiser.
Trump also pointed to the London attack as vindication of his executive order on immigration, which is now facing a series of hurdles in court.
Trump's defense of his Twitter habit came a day after one of his aides, Kellyanne Conway, criticized the USA media for having "this obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what he does as president".
Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that no one in the White House vets Trump's tweets.
It was a Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, who asked the question that many Republicans have raised in the weeks since Comey's firing, as one media leak followed another revealing Comey's claims about Trump's inappropriate interactions with him.
