Donald Trump’s Comey Letter was Reportedly Sent to the Wrong Printer



Donald Trump’s firing of James Comey in May of 2017, was a watershed moment for his presidency. The firing set a number of wheels in motion, eventually leading to Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion and obstruction of justice.

Biographer Vicky Ward’s new book, Kushner INC, reveals that the Comey letter almost fell into the wrong hands. According to Ward, the letter was initially sent to the wrong White House printer.

After the letter was sent to the wrong printer:

“[National Economic Council Director Gary] Cohn told his aide to take the letter straight to [then-White House counsel] Donald McGahn, who also had an office on the second floor of the White House (and whose printer it had clearly been meant for). Upon receiving it and realizing it had been printed in the wrong place, McGahn said, “Oh, f!@#!”

In the grand scheme of things, the letter ended up in the right hands. The story does, however, point out a common mistake for a Trump White House that seemingly makes a lot of them.
