Trump Tweets Legal Smear Against James Comey With No Evidence Whatsoever



It makes me genuinely sad every single day that it is an actual meme that the current President of the United States and leader of the free world uses Twitter, probably the least intellectual social media outlet, to voice his least thought out opinions and put our actual national security in jeopardy by just making bold and often totally false and inflammatory statements whenever he feels like it.

However, there are laws about this stuff, and the President’s latest online outburst might have landed him in it, big time. Libel law refers to making false accusations against someone. It exists for very good reason – reputations can be destroyed by false accusations, so it is – rightly – illegal to just randomly accuse people of crimes and offer no evidence to back it up whatsoever. Committing libel is a monumentally stupid thing for any person to do, a million times more so when it’s the President of the United States. And even more when it is in reference to a vocal critic of that President, who happens to be the former FBI Director who was fired by that same President for clearly politically motivated reasons.

Yet, in spite of the monstrous stupidity of it, Trump may have actually committed libel against James Comey by tweeting an outrageous allegation of illegality against him, despite the fact that there does not appear to be any evidence to that effect in existence whatsoever. It’s one thing to lie publicly and repeatedly about fairly trivial stuff like the size of the crowd at the presidential inauguration, but it is totally another to accuse someone of crimes when it is both totally unnecessary and wholly uncalled for. This man really, really should know better. Here’s what he tweeted:

“On 245 occasions, former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators he didn’t know, didn’t recall, or couldn’t remember things when asked. Opened investigations on 4 Americans (not 2) – didn’t know who signed off and didn’t know Christopher Steele. All lies”

“This whole deal is a Rigged Fraud headed up by dishonest people who would do anything so that I could not become President. They are now exposed!”

That’s right. Your eyes do not deceive you. The man who heads up our government and represents our great nation on the world stage just said, apparently with no shame (and, again, with zero evidence) that James Comey lied to House investigators, proudly proclaiming that “they are no exposed!”

There are no words.
