James Comey’s book promotional efforts have already caused a whole bunch of facepalms and WTFs, and the former FBI director added to the list of mind-boggling statements during his interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos:
STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you tell him that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents?
COMEY: No. I didn’t…
STEPHANOPOULOS: But did he have a right to know that?
COMEY: That it had been financed by his political opponents? I don't know the answer to that.

This single segment of the @Comey interview with @ABC captures Comey's true lack of character – he admits he did not inform @POTUS that the Steele Dossier was opposition research because “wasn’t necessary for my goal.” – so…what exactly WAS his goal?! https://t.co/GRY8DaZDfv

Comey wasn’t sure if the president had a right to know who financed the Steele dossier?

You don't know the answer to that?! You're either a terrible LIAR (well, we already know that) or you're a complete imbecile (yeah…that works too). https://t.co/peSofnMjSa

Trump’s biggest mistake in dealing with Comey was not firing him the moment he became president. https://t.co/ZUwuErinZZ

"I don't know the answer to that." Yeah, he knows the answer to that. He was obligated to tell the President that his opponents had bought that fake information. Comey lies like a Clinton. https://t.co/aj9guMB74e

James Comey apparently did have Higher Loyalties. But to whom? https://t.co/A1oV0RGPjh
