Former FBI Director James Comey came under renewed fire Thursday from President Trump.

“Look, Comey is a leaker, and he’s a liar and not only on this stuff. He’s been leaking for years. I did a great thing for the American people by firing him,” Trump charged during an interview on “Fox & Friends.”

He also blasted his own Justice Department for not investigating the Comey for supposedly leaking what Trump called classified memos, the contemporaneous notes the then-top G-man wrote after two conversations with the president.

“He didn’t write those memos accurately. He put a lot of phony stuff,” Trump said about Comey’s contention that the president twice told him he had never spent the night in Moscow.

“So I go to Russia . . . I stayed there a very short period of time but, of course, I stayed. Well, his memo said I left immediately. I never said that. I never said I left immediately.”
