President Donald Trump’s legal team, in the wake of condemning declaration from James Comey, arrangements to record a protest the former FBI director with the Justice Department Inspector General and the Senate Judiciary Committee early next week.
The Justice Department, be that as it may, has constrained ward over former representatives. They can research the cure however in the case of discovering wrongdoing is make a note in Comey’s record should he ever try to be utilized by the Justice Department again.
As a businessman, Trump had a long history of threatening legal action. But the businessman-turned-president rarely followed through on those claims.
If @TedCruz doesn’t clean up his act, stop cheating, & doing negative ads, I have standing to sue him for not being a natural born citizen.

Amid the 2016 campaign, Trump debilitated to sue Sen. Ted Cruz, his essential rival, different circumstances, alongside the Republican Party of Louisiana, The Washington Post, The New York Times and the ladies who blamed him for sexual misconduct. None of those claims were ever recorded.
The new complaint will focus on Comey’s testimony that he gave a friend the content of memos about his conversations with Trump and asked the friend to then give that information to a reporter. Comey said Friday that he gave the companion – later recognized as Daniel Richman, a long-term Comey associate and Columbia University teacher – the data after Trump tweeted that he may have tapes of his conversations with the fired FBI Director.
“My judgment was I needed to get that out into the public square. So I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter,” Comey said Thursday.
Trump’s lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, could document the objections ahead of schedule one week from now, one source said.
Republicans have hoped to ruin Comey by calling him a “leaker” given the way he scattered the data about Trump.
Comey said Thursday that the updates he composed were unclassified. Dispersing unclassified data is for the most part not considered spilling, and the President did not state official benefit over Comey’s declaration. The President himself blamed Comey for lying and spilling Friday on Twitter.
“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.
The source said the way that Comey chosen to scatter the data given a tweet was “gold” for the legal advisors hoping to document a protest against the previous FBI chief.
Norm Eisen, a former White House Ethics autocrat for President Barack Obama, revealed to CNN that Comey “did nothing improper in disclosing the details of the meeting in which Trump ordered him to drop the investigation against Flynn.”
“The discussion was not arranged, nor was the notice about it,” Eisen, a said. “DOJ rules do not prohibit the disclosure of such information. The conversation was not subject to the attorney-client privilege or other privileges since Comey was obviously not acting as Trump’s lawyer. And if any rights did apply, Trump waived them by repeatedly disclosing the contents of his conversations with Comey.” Eisen likewise recommended on Twitter that Kasowitz might be manhandling his energy as a lawyer.
“There can also be bar penalties for abuse of process, and civil ones for libel,” he said. “But we need to let this play out more before those assessments are made.”
Laurence Tribe, an educator of protected law at Harvard Law School, said that the “only impropriety, and perhaps illegality, about the Comey release of his conversation with the President and the memo recording was that of Trump, threatening the former FBI Director through Marc Kasowitz yesterday.”
