Ex-FBI Director James Comey Likens Donald Trump To A “Mafia Boss” In New Memoir

President Donald Trump slammed James Comey on Friday as a “weak and untruthful slime ball” and a “proven LEAKER & LIAR,” the day after explosive excerpts from the former FBI director’s tell-all book surfaced in media reports.

“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst “botch jobs” of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”


In an upcoming interview with ABC News, the 6’8 ft former-FBI director pulls no punches in describing his time as the lead investigator for the world’s most powerful organized crime organization. He likened working with Trump’s administration as being in the mob and Trump as a “mafia boss” — full of lies, corruption and deceit.

Comey stated that he felt like he was living an out of body experience, especially when at one point in the investigation he had to confront Trump about intelligence of Trump’s Illuminati sex parties with Russian models prostitutes of which Comey said was filmed by the Russians in order to hold leverage over Trump. He also made mention of Trump either being pee’d on or peeing on the prostitutes or both. Nonetheless he withheld nothing in painting a lucid portrait of Trump’s loathsome corruptness.

Many would argue Comey was fired by Trump simply because he knew way too much.

Comey’s persuasive new memoir is entitled, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership” is out now.

Donald Trump Administration Planning To Require Food Stamp Receipients To Drug Test

According to CBS News — The Trump administration is considering a plan that would allow states to require black certain food stamp recipients to undergo drug testing.


The proposal under review would be narrowly targeted, applying mostly to people who are able-bodied, without dependents and applying for some specialized jobs, according to an administration official briefed on the plan. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said roughly 5 percent of participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program could be affected.

The drug-testing proposal is another step in the Trump administration’s push to allow states more flexibility in how they implement federal programs that serve the poor, unemployed or uninsured. It also wants to allow states to tighten work requirements for food stamp recipients and has found support among GOP governors who argue that greater state control saves money and reduces dependency.

Internal emails obtained by The Associated Press indicated that Agriculture Department officials in February were awaiting word from the White House about the timing of a possible drug-testing announcement.

I think we just have to be ready because my guess is we may get an hour’s notice instead of a day’s notice,” wrote Jessica Shahin, associate administrator of SNAP.

Conservative policymakers have pushed for years to tie food assistance programs to drug testing.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, sued the USDA in 2015 for blocking the state from drug testing adults applying for food stamps.

A federal judge tossed the suit in 2016, but Walker renewed his request for permission later that year, after Donald Trump had won the presidency but before he took office.

We turned that down,” said former USDA Food and Nutrition Service Undersecretary Kevin Concannon, who served in the position under the Obama administration from 2009 until January of last year. “It’s costly and cumbersome.”

The proposal isn’t expected to be included in a GOP-written farm bill that could be released as soon as early this week, a GOP aide said.

Do you think it is fair to require food stamp recipients to drug test in order to meet eligibility?

Mike Pence vs Tim Kaine: What to Watch For In The Vice Presidential Debate

A record 84 million people watched the first face-off between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton last week. And those who tuned in for a spectacle were not disappointed. By comparison, the matchup tonight between their respective No. 2s should pack all the excitement of a televised taste test between Triscuits and Wheat Thins.

Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine—similarly earnest, avuncular figures, born a year apart, both with experience in Congress and as chief executives of their respective states but without big national profiles—will likely each turn in a competent performance tonight. (The two take the stage at 9 p.m. E.ST., at Longwood University in Farmville, Va., and the event will be broadcast by CBS.)

Tavis Smiley Calls Out Sheriff David Clarke For “Scapegoating” Black Lives Matter

During his speech at the Republican National Convention Monday night, Sheriff David Clarke said the Black Lives Matter movement was anarchy.

Talk show host Tavis Smiley was asked by reporters how he felt about Clarke’s statements, to which he said “if the Black Lives Matters movement is anarchy, as Clarke said in his speech, then the Boston Tea Party was too, reports MSNBC.

“But we wouldn’t be here without it,” he added. Also noting that, “It is always easy to find these sort of political sycophants who are willing to stand up and advance these sort of simple slogans and rosy rhetoric but can’t get to a real conversation about what’s at stake here. What’s at stake here is not just the lives of cops. And there’s no one in the country who doesn’t believe that blue lives matter, indeed they do. The question is when do we get around to appreciating, to valuing the sanctity, the humanity, and the dignity of black life? That’s what’s at the stake.”

Smiley went on to say that is the reason as to why Black Lives Matter is protesting and that ultimately Clarke is “scapegoating” because he does not want to address the issue at hand.

“Again, I repeat, it’s about the humanity, and the dignity, and the sanctity of black life,” Smiley said.
