Comey 'lied and leaked' and protected Clinton

But special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump fired Comey to obstruct justice in the Russian Federation probes, which the then-FBI chief was in charge of.

The London Economic reported earlier this week how Hillary Clinton abandoned a friendly meet and greet on the Welsh leg of her British tour as a student at Swansea University where she had just been awarded an Honorary Doctorate told her: "Bernie would have won, only you could lose to Trump".

"FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete", Trump tweeted, continuing, "Many people not interviewed, including Clinton herself".

"Comey stated under oath that he didn't do this - obviously a fix?"

Trump's latest online burst came in response to the FBI's release of heavily blacked out draft statements from May 2016 by Comey in preparation for closing the Clinton investigation without criminal charges.

Interestingly, Hillary Clinton had blamed FBI director James Comey for losing the United States presidential elections, for re-opening the investigation into her emails. "He was the best thing that ever happened to her!"

The document release was titled "Drafts of Director Comeys July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01". That timing has prompted criticism that FBI leadership had prejudged the conclusion before completing the investigation. However, Clinton said at the time, "I've been answering questions for over a year" by the time the interview took place.

Trump, as both a candidate and now president, has long complained about the FBI's handling of the email case, though his criticism has varied. "Where is the Justice Department?"

The president complained again after the Senate Judiciary Committee released excerpts of interviews with Federal Bureau of Investigation officials close to Comey.

In August, Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Senator Lindsey Graham, a member of the same committee, sent a letter to new FBI Director Christopher Wray saying they had learned from interview transcripts released by the Office of the Special Counsel that Comey had drafted the statement in advance.
