The top White House ethics lawyer under President Obama said he believes former FBI director James Comey could sue President Trump for libel.

The comments come as Trump continues to lash out at Comey after the former FBI director denounced Trump during a scathing interview with ABC News.

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

“This false, malicious accusation of criminal conduct is libel per se by Trump. @Comey could sue—& might win,” Norm Eisen tweeted Monday. “Despite absolute official immunity, open legal question whether defamation using personal Twitter may be outside its scope. See Nixon v Fitzgerald.”
