Trump Threatens Private Citizen James Comey

Trump is apparently very angry that former FBI Director James Comey is defending himself in the press, angry enough to threaten the private citizen.

I'm old enough to remember when the nation collectively flipped out over the NSA's collection of anonymous metadata from international phone calls.

In this case, Trump is explicitly threatening a private citizen and potential witness with secret surveillance.

Trump is going to make Nixon look good before this is over. Nixon-era Republicans already look better because no sitting Republicans in 2017 are willing to hold Trump accountable. Throwing 20 to 30 million people off healthcare and cutting taxes for the rich is more important to today's GOP.

    Donald Trump doesn’t know any way of dealing with someone he can’t persuade except to threaten. They’re almost always empty threats, which makes his attempts at intimidation look pitiful.

    And yeah, he’s making Richard Nixon look slightly less despicable every time he opens his gob.

    I’m guessing Comey has nothing to worry about. Trump is the least credible person in the federal gov’t. No one believes anything he says.

      Well, there is that insistently ignorant 30% of the population…

    I love the response that Comey is not worried about any tapes.

      I saw one that said Comey hopes there ARE tapes.
