"I want to give everyone a good, fair chance".
For example, Bartiromo characterized Comey as an Obama-era "staffer", but that's not quite right.
Director Comey was very, very good to Hillary Clinton. "He saved her life", Trump said, referring to Comey's press conference previous year in which he revealed he would not pursue charges against Clinton.
Trump again brought up the Clinton investigation in the Fox Business Network interview, telling Bartiromo, "Don't forget, when Jim Comey came out, he saved Hillary Clinton". People don't realize that.
Condemning the alleged use of chemical weapon in Syria, Trump had said: "When you kill innocent children, innocent babies - babies, little babies - with a chemical gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines". We will see what happens. "But you know I have confidence in him".
At this point, it appears as though Comey is safe, but being kept on a short leash. When he was reading those charges, she was guilty on every charge. "If he weren't, she would be right now going to trial".
In fact, Comey intervened in the election in such a way that nearly certainly cost Clinton the presidential race, all while hiding information from the public about the Trump campaign being under investigation for possibly cooperating with a foreign adversary.
According to CNN, Clinton said Trump's condemnation is in direct contrast to his concern for these children. As I said, it is essential that the world does more to deter Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad from committing future murderous atrocities.
Democrats certainly don't view Comey as being "very, very good" to Clinton, pointing to a late October letter he sent to Congressional leaders that said the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into additional information regarding Clinton's use of an email server, sparking a firestorm just days before the November election.
The conversation then moved to former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice and her handling of raw intelligence.
Trump believes that Comey's decision is the reason Clinton was not formally prosecuted.
"What they did is frightful", the president concluded.
