James Comey Is Going on a Media Blitz. RNC Has a Plan

Comey's interview will also come as Trump lashed out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Robert Mueller over the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

It features a digital ad showing a parade of Democrats questioning Comey's suitability to be the nation's top cop before he was sent packing.

The details of the response effort were first reported by CNN.

Republicans will highlight Democratic criticism of Comey over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email. The website's launch comes days before Comey is set to create a media sensation with a series of on-camera interviews across networks.

Clinton has blamed Comey's decision, along with dozens of other factors, for her devastating loss to Donald Trump.

Russian Federation says Syria chemical attack 'staged' by White Helmets
In a follow-up tweet, Trump said America's relationship with Russian Federation "is worse now than it has ever been". Trump called out Putin along with the leadership in Iran for backing Assad, who he referred to as "Animal Assad".

Russian Federation vetoes Syria chemical weapons inquiry
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said it would go to Douma after an appeal to do so. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack killed 14 people, including Iranian forces.

Pens begin playoffs Wednesday against Flyers
The Winnipeg Jets have been the best team entering the playoffs with a 15-4-1 record in the final quarter of the regular season. A 27-5-3 streak over 35 games throttled them toward the top of the Eastern Conference , but they might have peaked too early.

The website itself leans heavily on one episode in the Comey saga involving his admission during a congressional hearing that he leaked information from a privileged meeting with Trump to reporters - using lawyer Benjamin Wittes, a longtime friend, as a middle-man.

Comey has been a thorn in Trump's side since his firing previous year and has remained vocal on Twitter ever since.

Comey also claimed in Senate testimony that he was defamed by the administration over their justification of his termination. The talking points call Comey's credibility into question by focusing on what the RNC calls his "long history of misstatements and misconduct".

"Are there things that you know but haven't said that could damage President Trump?".

An interview with Mr Comey, in which he is thought to speak candidly about Mr Trump's behaviour and the Russian Federation investigation, will air on Sunday night in the US.
