Twitter fingers is back at again.

Finally breaking his silence on Twitter, President Trump today called James Comey a “leaker” and said he feels “total and complete vindication” despite “so many false statement and lies” in an apparent swipe at the former FBI director’s Senate testimony Thursday.

“WOW, Comey is a leaker!,” Trump tweeted.

While the president doesn’t specify his target for the “false statements and lies,” Trump’s lawyer refuted two key parts of Comey’s testimony Thursday.

Trump today also called Comey a “leaker” after the former FBI director testified Thursday that he handed over his contemporaneous memos on the interactions he had with Trump to a “close friend” with the intention the memos be shared widely.

“My judgment was I need to get [the memos] out into the public square,” Comey said. “So I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memos with a reporter. I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
