Belief Clinton would win election 'factor' in email probe: James Comey

Trump renews blasting Comey 'lies' amid interview, book release

Trump renews blasting Comey 'lies' amid interview, book release

Trump's Sunday tweetstorm came before Comey appeared on ABC to tout his new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership," which will be published Tuesday.

Halper was speaking with Fox News' Eric Shawn about Comey after he spoke out against President Donald Trump in an interview that was aired on Sunday.

Patrice Failor Comey spells out her clear preference in the election many critics say her husband helped tilt in the same bombshell ABC interview where Comey talks about Trump's hair and skin tone and says he doesn't know if the president us under the sway of the Russians.

Asked whether Comey is someone he would describe as a "slime ball" - a term Trump has used twice in tweets - Ryan said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that "I don't speak like that".

Hours before the interview was shown, the president, who fired Comey previous year, unleashed a Twitter outburst that labeled Comey "slippery", suggested he should be put in jail and branded him "the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

In the Monday tweet, Trump accused Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whom he also fired, of being "Disgruntled", alleging they and other FBI officials collectively "committed many crimes!"

Comey also defended his decision to publicly disclose the FBI's re-opening of its investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's handling of email when she was secretary of state.

It was important the pressure for ending the investigation was issued in a phone call and not in a written document, former FBI assistant Director Ronald Hosko told TheDCNF.

Anderson continued that "the biggest thing that bothers me about the interview itself is that Jim is talking about some of the issues he discussed with the president in confidence, thats a little shocking...that the former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation would do that".


But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure...

But while Comey sharply criticized Trump, he said he hopes the president is not impeached.

Comey also says he found out he was sacked from television reports. Put simply, Comey thinks Trump is a bad person.

He explained: 'I wasn't trying to go easy on her or hard on her.

"He looked slightly orange up close", said Comey. They don't deny that Comey is sanctimonious and plainly sees himself as the Last Man of Integrity. You can't be kicked out of the room so he can talk to me alone.

Trump's camp had the heavy artillery ready to go the day after Comey's interview - summoning Kellyanne Conway to the airwaves to perform damage control.

Reuters and other news outlets have obtained copies of Comey's book before its formal release this week.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation. Comey: "It is stunning and I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's just - it's the truth". 'Cause he said, you know, 'If there's even a 1 percent chance my wife thinks that's true, that's awful'. After Clinton's loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.

"He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on", Comey said.
