Trump Emails Supporters to Tell Them How Awful James Comey Is

Not content with disparaging James Comey in a series of tweets, President Donald Trump sent an email to his supporters referring to the former FBI chief as a "slimeball."

The president has lashed out recently at Comey on a number of occasions—as the former FBI director began the press tour for his new book, A Higher Loyalty, which was released April 17—most recently on social media.

But Trump's tweetstorm didn't seem to be enough, as the president sent an email to his supporters on Tuesday continuing his rant about Comey, as well as asking for donations.

"If James Comey really had something big to say, why would he put it in a book and try to make millions off of it?" said the email, titled "James Comey; A slimeball."

"The truth is James Comey is a grandstanding liar who put his own interests above America's. Comey represents the worst of the swamp. He doesn't want hardworking Americans like you to win," the email added.

Since beginning the media tour for his book, Comey has not held back in his criticism of the president, saying that Trump was not fit to run the country.

In a Sunday interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on a special edition of 20/20, the former FBI chief said he believed Trump was "morally unfit to be president" because he "treats women like they're pieces of meat" and "lies constantly about matters big and small."

Ahead of the interview's airing, the president sent out a flurry of tweets about Comey that one former congressman quipped had led him to preorder a copy of Comey's book.

"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball! " Trump wrote on Sunday.

"Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far! " Trump added.
