On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” CNN Senior Legal Analyst and New Yorker Staff Writer Jeffrey Toobin argued that President Trump should worship the ground former FBI Director James Comey walks on because Comey did “probably more than anyone” to make Trump the president.
Toobin said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is the one who has a complaint over how the investigation into her emails was handled, given that her campaign was seemingly “destroyed on the eve of the election by the fact that James Comey felt compelled to announce that the investigation was re-opened, which turned out to be a big nothing. That’s the person with the real grievance here. Donald Trump should be worshiping the ground that James Comey walked on. Because he, probably more than anyone, made him president of the United States.”
