Comey Reveals He Had a ‘Negative Opinion’ of Trump Before He Even Took Office: It Was ‘Fact-Based’

Former FBI Director James Comey revealed in a BBC interview that he had a negative opinion of President Donald Trump before his inauguration.

Comey told BBC’s Stephen Sackur that it wasn’t a “political judgment” but that he had “serious concerns about [Trump’s] ability to respect the obligation to tell the truth.”

Sackur had noted how Comey seemed not to start on a blank slate with Trump:

“It seems to me that in your dealings with Donald Trump from the very get-go, from your first meeting with him before the inauguration in January of 2017, you — very far from bringing a blank slate to your view of him, to your meetings with him — you were deeply suspicious and skeptical of Trump from the start. And that comes out clearly in your recollections, in your memoir.”

Watch:

Comey defended himself, however, arguing that his opinion of Trump was “fact-based.” The interview, released Monday, came as Comey promoted his book, “A Higher Loyalty.”

A frequent critic of the president, Comey faced both Trump’s and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ wrath amid his book’s release:

    Comey must not be a very good lawyer the more he talks the more he puts himself in legal jeopardy.
