Schlapp: NYT Flynn Memo Is 'Jim Comey Striking Back' At Trump
American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp reacted to the reported memo from former FBI Director James Comey alleging that President Trump asked him to dismiss the Michael Flynn investigation.
The New York Times obtained the contents of a memo Comey wrote after a meeting with Trump earlier this year, in which the president allegedly asked the director to "let [the Flynn probe] go."
"Jim Comey is striking back [after being fired]," Schlapp said.
He said Comey is trying to appear as a leader "standing up for the Constitution" but is instead "acting like a politician."
Philadelphia radio host Dom Giordano said on "The Fox News Specialists" that repeated leaks that turn into mainstream media reports like the Comey memo "look like [a] piling-on" against Trump.
"It's endless, and these things [the media says] are not provable," Giordano said.
Schlapp said Comey is "showing a strange pattern of behavior if the president was pushing him to do something inappropriate."
Schlapp was referring to several public events that Trump and Comey attended together during which they appeared to be enjoying themselves.
Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told PBS that Comey "would have told him" about such allegations before the Times report came out, Bret Baier reported.
