Pres. Trump Goes After Comey: 'He Saved Hillary Clinton's Life'

Former Clinton aide Trump doesn't have a Syria strategy

Although Trump said that he wants to give "everyone a good, fair chance", he sounds particularly bitter over the fact that Comey didn't recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for using a private email server.

It's been 83 days since President Donald Trump took the oath of office, but his comments about FBI Director James Comey and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo in an interview that aired Wednesday showed the 2016 election is still far from the back of the president's mind.

"Don't forget, when Jim Comey came out, he saved Hillary Clinton", Trump told Bartiromo. People don't realize that. "He saved her life", Trump said, referring to Comey's press conference a year ago in which he revealed he would not pursue charges against Clinton. "I call it 'Comey I.' And I joke about it a little bit".

"I think they come after us harder on both being able to solve a problem ... and then also on process and intrigue", she said.

Trump answered that Clinton would be going to "trial" right now if it weren't for Comey's decision.

Bartiromo asked the president if he would pursue the charges against his former rival but Trump said he would rather not discuss it.

Bartiromo then pressed Trump on why Comey is still on the job if he feels that way. He had said previously that Comey "made a mistake" in not charging Clinton and added: "I think something happened". You know, it's going to be interesting.

Director Comey was very, very good to Hillary Clinton. "I want to talk about positive things".

Asked to respond to Trump's comments, Brian Fallon, who had worked as a Clinton campaign spokesman, said: "There is only one candidate from the 2016 campaign now facing a federal investigation, and it's Donald Trump".

Trump said it's "so obvious" what the Obama administration was doing, saying "nobody believes" Rice's actions were not political.

"Does anybody really believe that? What they [the Obama administration] did is awful".
