The June 2017 letter, obtained by the Associated Press, suggested that Comey acted in order to harm President Trump by releasing memos of conversations between the pair. “Over the last year, Mr. Comey has engaged in a pattern of calculated unilateral action unbounded by governing law, regulation and practice, and plainly motivated by personal and political self-interest,” the 13-page document, written by Trump’s then-lead lawyer Marc Kasowitz said. “Mr. Comey continued his Machiavellian behavior after President Trump was elected,” the letter continued.
