Comey admits he indirectly passed a personal memo to the media, but legal experts say Trump is misusing the term and case appears extremely thin
When Donald Trump gets in a fight, he sues. “SEE YOU IN COURT,” he tweeted in February, after his first travel ban was blocked. It is a pattern established over many decades. So the president’s plan to file a legal complaint against former FBI director James Comey, who on Thursday called him a liar, is business as usual.
But in this particular fight, the president might want to check his impulse to sue. The supposed case against the former federal prosecutor appears to be extremely thin, legal experts say. And suing could actually draw the president himself further into legal trouble.
