In another impromptu White House appearance just now, President Trump went off on special counsel Robert Mueller all over again. In an especially bonkers moment, the President lamented the friendship between Mueller and fired FBI Director James Comey, citing a “picture file.”
“They were supposedly best friends,” Trump said. “You look at the picture file and you see hundreds of pictures of him and Comey.”
What is he talking about? A picture file?
There’s really no way to know what’s going on in Trump’s head. But it should be pointed out that Comey succeeded Mueller as FBI director – and there are photos!
Before that, Comey was deputy attorney general while Mueller was heading the FBI. And yes, surprise! there are photos.
Even earlier, Comey was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, again while Mueller was FBI director. Photos? Yes!
