"I just thought, 'I wonder if I should sue the bastard?'"

“Have you ever thought about suing President Trump or his allies for some of the things that have been said about you?” Comey was asked by Mediaite founder and ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams on his SiriusXM show Monday.

“Actually it’s funny you should ask that. Yes. Occasionally it has popped in my head, and I decided it’s not worth giving them the attention that would involve, or giving them the space in my head that that would require,” Comey replied. “I’d rather just not follow him on Twitter.”

“He said so many things that were false and defamatory about me that would have been actionable, and I just thought, I wonder if I should sue the bastard?” Comey recalled. “And then decided, you know what, it’s not worth giving him that airtime, which he craves, and letting him in my head that much.”
