Always a Palm Beach connection: Mar-a-Lago gets passing mention in Comey memos

President Donald Trump was tweeting from Mar-a-Lago late Thursday night and early this morning about fired FBI Director James Comey, his book tour and the release of 15 pages of redacted memos Comey wrote after meetings with Trump in 2017.

The Comey memos include little that hasn’t been made public before. For Palm Beachers, there’s a mention of Mar-a-Lago in Comey’s account of a Jan. 28 dinner he had at the White House with the president.

Topics Trump mentioned during a wide-ranging conversation included “the extraordinary luxury of the White House (which he favorably compared to Mar-a-Lago),” Comey wrote.

Trump on Thursday night said the memos vindicated him.

“James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?” the president tweeted at 10:37 p.m. Thursday.

This morning, Trump added: “So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written). Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don’t think so!”
