The Republican National Committee, the official arm of the Republican Party is gearing up for an offensive against former FBI Director James “Lyin’ Comey” ahead of his book’s release this week. The term was originally used successfully by Donald Trump as a weapon against his rival in the primary election, Ted Cruz.
According to an RNC official, the GOP plans to use their new website, www.LyinComey.com to fact check Comey’s book using “rapid response” to point out any contradictions, inaccuracies or misstatements in an effort to wear down the book’s credibility and more importantly, that of the former FBI chief.
“James Comey’s publicity tour is a self-serving attempt to make money and rehabilitate his own image,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “Comey is a liar and a leaker, and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing. If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we’ll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility.”
In an interview with ABC News on Sunday, Comey said that President Trump is such an indiscriminate liar that he sometimes doesn’t even know he’s lying. He said Trump was “morally unfit” to hold his office and that “the problem with this President is that he will stain everyone around him.”
President Trump responded accordingly via Twitter:
“Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!”
“The big questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?”
