Former FBI Director James Comey’s book tour is backfiring big time.

He’s been exposed as a partisan who conspired to damage the President.

And he was exposed for hiding this terrible secret from Donald Trump.

Comey’s interviews with media outlets have not gone well.

The former FBI Director has come off as smug, petty, and full of himself.

But he let the truth slip about one of his interactions with Trump.

And it’s leading to Americans raising suspicions about Comey and how he conducted himself as FBI Director.

The pivot point of the Trump-Comey relationship was the January 2017 briefing where Comey informed Trump of the “golden showers” accusations contained in the Christopher Steele dossier.

But Comey did not give the President the full story.

He never informed him about the collusion accusations contained in the document.

And – more importantly – he never briefed the President on the fact that the dossier was really an opposition research document paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Comey told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he didn’t know why he never told Trump that Clinton had paid for the infamous “golden showers” dossier.

Town hall reports:

“In the fall of 2016 just before the presidential election, then FBI Director James Comey informed Republican candidate Donald Trump they had received “materials” alleging salacious misconduct by the business man. Comey warned the candidate the information could be used as blackmail.

Those “materials” Comey referred to was the now infamous and fake Russian dossier put together by British spy Christopher Steele. Steele was paid for the “opposition research” by the Clinton campaign and the DNC. 

When Comey briefed Trump, he knew where the funding for the dossier came from but failed to disclose those facts at the time.

“Did you tell him that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents?” ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos asked in an interview set to air this weekend.

“No. I didn’t,” Comey responded. 

“But did he have a right to know that?” Stephanopoulos followed up.

“That it had been financed by his political opponents? I don’t know the answer to that,” Comey said.”

Why do you think Comey never told Trump who paid for the dossier?
