The FBI just shot down Trump’s creepy lie about Mueller and Comey, and Comey is loving it

Time has a way of warping and distorting under the Trump administration, so one could be forgiven for remembering that the president previously claimed to have a hundred photos of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey “hugging and kissing” without one remembering exactly when it happened.

As a refresher: Trump made the absurd claim this past September and then, not surprisingly, failed to produce any such photos. It was yet another transparent, fumbling, and utterly mystifying attempt to undermine the legitimacy of Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The president was hoping to evoke images of some grand, vaguely homosexual shadow agenda to undermine his administration and drum up fake charges against him. If anything, the claim made Trump sound patently ridiculous and revealed all his other attacks on Mueller to be nothing more than commonplace political hackery.

Now, the tawdry little saga has come to a logical end. A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has concluded, with the FBI stating they haven’t found any photos of Comey and Mueller “hugging and kissing,” as reported by Buzzfeed’s Jason Leopold.

Comey seized on the tweet from Leopold and used it take a little victory and take an oblique mocking shot at Trump. “My wife is so relieved,” Comey wrote, followed by the laughing-so-hard-I’m-crying emoji. It was a brief, funny tweet, and shows just how seriously the fired FBI Director takes our current commander-in-chief.
