Nicholas Davis, in 2017, “said he was not bothered by” Donald Trump firing FBI Director James Comey, and he does not think Donald Trump obstructed justice by firing him. “Davis doesn’t think there is any connection between Trump and Russia and said that ‘no one actually believes’ there is.” He defended Donald Trump revealing “highly classified intelligence gathered by a U.S. ally about ISIS to Russian diplomats.”

 

Nicholas Davis, in 2017, “said he was not bothered by the [FBI Director James] Comey firing overall, but felt the timing could have been better. Davis also said he doesn’t think the known contents of Comey’s memo describe an obstruction of justice. ‘(Trump) wasn’t telling James Comey ‘hey, stop this investigation,’’ he said. ‘If James Comey thought that it was obstruction of justice, then he could have reported it to the (Attorney General Jeff Sessions) or (Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente)…back when it happened.’”

“Davis added that Trump’s lack of political experience — the presidency is the first public office he has ever held — means he is untrained in the nuances of how to communicate with personnel like Comey, leading to statements intended as casual being interpreted as formal.”

“Davis doesn’t think there is any connection between Trump and Russia and said that ‘no one actually believes’ there is.” He continued, “‘(Senate minority leader) Chuck Schumer doesn’t believe it, (House minority leader) Nancy Pelosi doesn’t believe it,’ he said. ‘It’s all just politics, that’s all it is.’”

After Donald “Trump revealed highly classified intelligence gathered by a U.S. ally about ISIS to Russian diplomats,” Nicholas “Davis said he thought the president was within his rights to declassify and disclose the information, especially since both the U.S. and Russia are working to take down ISIS.”
