Comey: Trump asked me to investigate 'pee tape' to reassure Melania

Comey: Trump asked me to investigate 'pee tape' to reassure Melania

The website, which links to several interviews where Democrats criticize Comey, also tries to defend Trump's decision to fire Comey.

The Republican party is bracing for a week of headlines dominated by Mr Comey and has set up a counter-offensive in the form of a website called "Lyin' Comey" which brands the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief as a discredited, partisan official.

In a statement, RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said, "James Comey's publicity tour is a self-serving attempt to make money and rehabilitate his own image".

Mr. Trump fired Mr. Comey as FBI director a year ago, and Mr. Comey then leaked accounts of his conversations with the president in hopes of spurring a special counsel investigation.

Republicans will highlight Democratic criticism of Comey over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email. "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".

Mr Rudd wrote that both Mr Turnbull and Mr Shorten would be "long gone" if the same standards had been applied to them. Funnily enough, I don't think Joyce was trying to be useful.

The RNC effort underscores the incredibly high stakes for Trump and his party as Comey details his interactions with the president, including his claim that Trump asked for a loyalty test. I don't know what "go there" means exactly, but it already gets three snaps in Z-formation from me.

The president replied that he "might be right" - but kept asking him to consider the idea, and said he would as well, according to Comey. Republicans will argue that Comey "repeatedly usurped" the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and violated protocol by "publicly acknowledging the existence of ongoing FBI investigations".

"Wow, watch Comey lie under oath to Senator G when asked 'have you ever been an anonymous source.or known someone else to be an anonymous source.?' He said strongly 'never, no.' He lied as shown clearly on @foxandfriends", the president tweeted March 18. "Badly overstepped his bounds, " Clinton is quoted as saying of Comey.

The "Lyin' Comey" website also portrays him as a politically motivated Washington insider.
