President Trump slammed Former FBI Director James Comey as “either very sick or very dumb” on Friday after Comey denied in the Fox News interview the prior evening that his decision to share memos detailing his conversations with the president constituted a “leak.”
Comey and Fox News’s Bret Baier had quite a sparring match on Thursday over whether or not Comey “leaked” information out of the Trump administration when he shared the contents of a memo detailing his conversations with President Trump.
It’s quite an interview.
Actually is stunning overall amount the head of the FBI claims to not have known. Didn't know Steele's name; didn't know he lied to the FBI and was dismissed; didn't know who funded dossier; didn't know who leaked it. You gotta ask: Maybe he didn't want to know? #SpecialReport

Here’s is Trump’s response to the interview:
Is everybody believing what is going on. James Comey can’t define what a leak is. He illegally leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION but doesn’t understand what he did or how serious it is. He lied all over the place to cover it up. He’s either very sick or very dumb. Remember sailor!
