Trump’s lawyers fail to follow through on threats to Comey

Trump’s lawyers fail to follow through on threats to ComeyPresident Trump’s lawyers, after rethinking their legal strategy, have shelved plans for now to file complaints accusing former FBI Director James Comey of leaking confidential information about his conversations with the president, according to two sources familiar with the lawyers’ plans. The decision to back away from repeated public threats to launch an all-out legal assault on Comey reflects a significant tactical retreat for Trump’s legal team. It was prompted by concerns that such a move might antagonize special counsel Robert Mueller as he investigates Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to Trump’s presidential campaign, the sources said.
