Vastavam web: President Donald Trump accused today the FBI director he fired, James Comey, of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to Congress under oath.In a new memoir due to hit the bookshelves Tuesday, Comey said Trump reminded him of a mafia boss who demanded absolute loyalty, saw the entire world against him and lied about everything.”He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH.” Comey said the president was also obsessed with the alleged existence of a video in which Russian prostitutes said to be hired by Trump urinated on the bed in a Moscow hotel room.

The allegations left Trump fuming.”He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI,” Trump added in a second tweet.”This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values,” he writes, according to excerpts released by The New York Times.”His leadership is transactional, ego-driven and about personal loyalty.” The US president lives in “a cocoon of alternative reality” that he tried to pull others around him into, Comey adds, according to The Washington Post.
