Washington (CNN)Former FBI Director James Comey defended the FBI and ripped President Donald Trump's constant criticisms of the agency, detailing how worried they had made his family -- even convincing Comey's mother-in-law that he was going to jail. The interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on "Anderson Cooper 360" came the same days as the release of a highly anticipated report by the Justice Department's inspector general that established that the FBI properly opened its investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 election but said there were major errors in how the agency conducted the probe. In the interview, Comey reiterated many of the points he made in an op-ed for The Washington Post earlier Monday, and said he regrets how much Trump was able to set the tone for the interview's release -- even convincing Comey's mother-in-law he was going to jail. "Every time we would visit she would express that worry," Comey said. "I would tell her, look, it's all made up. … [Read more...] about Comey says Trump’s constant criticisms made his mother-in-law think Comey would go to jail

By ridiculing a reporter’s question Wednesday and abruptly leaving a media session, Baker Mayfield may have actually endeared himself further to many fans of the Cleveland Browns. But his behavior did little to dispel perceptions that he and his disappointing team lack focus. Big things were expected this season from the Browns, who saw Mayfield play well as a rookie last year and then added star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the offseason. However, Cleveland is 2-5 after a 27-13 loss Sunday to the host New England Patriots. Mayfield’s testy moment arrived when he was discussing the Browns’ unsuccessful drive at the end of the first half, in which the team got the ball down 10 points with 2:19 left, but went just 14 yards in seven plays before time ran out. Asked by a longtime Browns reporter, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland, about an apparent “lack of urgency” in that situation, the second-year quarterback explained that a false-start penalty on … [Read more...] about Baker Mayfield’s testy moment isn’t helping perception that he and Browns lack focus
