Ahead of his highly anticipated book release this Tuesday, former FBI Director James Comey has been in the news a lot as excerpts from his book leak and reveal many of its juicer parts.
But President Donald Trump is not happy about some of the information Comey reveals in his book and chided him in a tweetstorm on Sunday.
What did Trump say?
Through seven tweets, Trump refuted some of the points in Comey's book and said the former FBI director should be jailed for allegedly leaking classified information and allegedly lying to Congress.
