Disgraced former FBI chief James Comey is once again lashing out at President Donald Trump after Russian leader Vladimir Putin made the accusation that U.S. intel forces secretly helped move $400 million into Hillary Clinton’s campaign accounts.
The bombshell accusation came during the Monday press conference that Trump and Putin held in Helsinki. During the presser, Putin said that people in the U.S. intelligence community helped Bill Browder, an American-born British financier, move $400 million into Hillary Clinton’s campaign coffers.
During the presser Putin said:
Vladimir Putin: Last year there was one extradition case by the United States… Mueller can use this treaty as an official request to us… in this case this kind of effort should be a reciprocal one… For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder… They sent a huge amount of money – $400 million as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton…So we have solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest of questioning them.
If it really happened, this is highly illegal.
Though he has been quiet for a while, former FBI chief Comey came roaring back to the news with an attack on Trump, Putin, and the press conference.
On July 16, Comey tweeted: “This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country. Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.”
