By: Lisa M. Hayes – Confluence Daily is your daily news source for women in the know.
A source present at the taping says James Comey’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, airing Sunday at 10 p.m. as a “20/20” special, is “going to shock the president and his team.”
The source said Comey’s comments, in his first interview since being fired by President Trump last May, will generate headlines and “certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump.”
- In an ABC promo, Stephanopoulos says Comey compared Trump to a mob boss.
According to the source:
- The Comey interview left people in the room stunned — he told George things that he’s never said before.
- Some described the experience as surreal. The question will be how to fit it all into a one-hour show.
- Comey answered every question.
- If anyone wonders if Comey will go there, he goes there. (Source: Axios)
At a time when the President cannot afford more bad press, the person he’s accused of being a “leaker” sat down with 20/20’s George Stephanopoulos and did more than leak. Reports of his interview say he spilled – everything.
Undoubtedly, Comey won’t say anything the Mueller investigation doesn’t already know. Comey won’t jeopardize the investigation to promote a book. However, Comey’s interview will most certainly leave a lot of Congressional Republicans very uncomfortable making it even harder for them to support the President moving into the 2018 campaign cycle.
Moreover, we will hear things for the first time. Comey has reportedly shared details the will rock the White House. In any other circumstance, those claims might by hyperbolic and over-inflated to drive ratings. In this circumstance, it might be an undersell.
You’re not going to want to miss this – you’re probably going to need a couple bottles of wine, or tequila.
