President Trump slammed ex-FBI Director James Comey again over the weekend, this time for assuming Hillary Clinton would pummel the former reality TV star in the presidential election.


“I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump,” Comey told ABC News in an interview airing Sunday night.


Comey admitted that it might have factored into his decision to take another look at Clinton’s email use just 11 days before voters went to the ballot box.


“I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been,” he said of whether her chances were a factor. “That she’s going to be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out.”

Trump’s mob mentality


That didn’t sit too well with the President, who suggested Comey was looking for a gig in the Clinton administration.

“Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe,” Trump raged Sunday morning on Twitter. “In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!”


The FBI reopened the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server on Oct. 28, 2016, after investigators found classified emails sent to top aide Huma Abedin on husband Anthony Weiner’s computer.


Neither 2016 nominee appeared to be a fan of Comey. Clinton hasn’t hidden her belief that his 11th-hour probe is the reason she lost.

Comey himself admits in his new book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” that he was shocked Trump won.

“I had assumed from media polling that Hillary Clinton was going to win,” he wrote, according to ABC News. “I have asked myself many times since if I was influenced by that assumption. I don’t know.


“Certainly not consciously, but I would be a fool to say it couldn’t have had an impact on me.”


The commander-in-chief has stamped Comey as a “LEAKER & LIAR,” ahead of his highly anticipated tome, which hits shelves Tuesday.

On Sunday, Trump continued spinning against Comey’s “badly reviewed book.”

His multi-tweet tirade suggested the former FBI director, whom Trump fired last May, should be in jail for supposedly lying to Congress and leaking classified information.


In another post, he disputed the memos Comey kept on his encounters with the President — one of which detailed Trump’s request for a loyalty pledge.


“I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty,” Trump tweeted. “I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His ‘memos’ are self serving and FAKE!”
