Less than 24 hours after James Comey testified in Congress in regards to his meetings with Donald Trump and the Russian investigation, the president finally broke his silence. In yet another rant on social media, Trump decided to rip the former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director during an early morning tweetstorm.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump kicked off his presidential campaign back in June 2015, it didn't take long before he was accused of having various ties back to Russia. Trump didn't help himself by refusing to release his tax returns, while praising Russian President Vladimir Putin on more than one occasion.

Over the next two years, various advisers and associates would be linked back to the Kremlin, including retired Gen. Michael Flynn who would eventually be forced to resign as National Security Advisers just weeks after taking the job. Over the last month, the pressure has only increased on Trump and his team to explain away the growing list of allegations and evidence that has been released. After firing James Comey last month, speculation grew due to the fact that the former FBI head was leading the investigation into Russia. On Thursday, a surprisingly quiet Trump avoided commenting on Comey's testimony in Congress, but that silence came to an end during a tweet on June 9.

Taking to his Twitter account on Friday morning, Donald Trump hit back at James Comey and accused him of being a leaker.

"Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker!" Trump tweeted out.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump posted a follow-up message on Twitter where he praised Fox News over their administration-friendly reporting.

"Great reporting by @foxandfriends and so many others," he tweeted, while adding, "Thank you!" Trump's tweets come after his legal team handled the initial response, while administration officials like Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News but didn't give much insight into what the president was thinking when it came to the James Comey testimony.

Junior's take

While Donald Trump was quiet during the actual testimony, it didn't stop one of his sons from speaking out on social media. In the hours leading up to James Comey arriving in Congress, and through the entire process, Donald Trump Jr. was glued to his Twitter account where he sent out dozens of tweets in defense of his father.
