Donald Trump calls former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey a slimeball. Again

Donald Trump Tweets James Comey “Untruthful Slime Ball” In Reax To Pee Tape Talk On 'GMA'

- Comey writes that Trump said he was thinking about asking the FBI to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie.

Dear James Comey: Grow up, you childish little man. "This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", he writes, according to The New York Times. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted.

That is the game of Washington politicians and pundits, a world Comey disdains as a member of the elite guild of lawyer-bureaucrats from the Justice Department. "Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the awful job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump wrote on Twitter. "He lied to Congress under OATH". He is a weak and.

It seems many around the country are excited to dig into Comey's details about Trump in the book that have emerged over the last week, including revelations that Comey compares Trump to a "mafia boss" and referred to his presidency as a "forest fire". "It's certainly possible... I do know that, as of this writing, Special Counsel Mueller and his team are hard at work and the American people can have confidence that, unless their investigation is blocked in some fashion, they will get to the truth, whatever that is".

A combination of file photos show U.S. President Donald Trump in the White House in Washington, DC, U.S. April 9, 2018 and former FBI Director James Comey on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., June 8, 2017.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told CNN he had "every confidence" in the accuracy of Comey's book.

The interview excerpt released by ABC focused largely on that one-on-one briefing on January 6, 2017 just before Trump took office. According to The Washington Post, "Comey wrote that Obama sat alone with him in the Oval Office in late November and told him, 'I picked you to be Federal Bureau of Investigation director because of your integrity and your ability. He said, 'If there's even a 1% chance that my wife thinks that's true, that's awful.' And I remember thinking, 'How could your wife think there's a 1% chance that you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?'" he said. "I think he should be left to do his job, and I don't think they're really contemplating this. But I don't know". "It wasn't necessary for my goal, which is to alert him we have this information". The dossier alleged that Kremlin had a tape of the dirty deed.

Would you take him at his word?

In "A Higher Loyalty", Comey says he came into a post-election Oval Office sit-down with Obama with a bad case of the jitters. "I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been".

Some of the early news coverage of Comey's memoir has made a mockery of Trump, including the cover of Friday's Daily News in NY.

- Comey writes that during the meeting he kept thinking of the NY mafia from his experience as a federal prosecutor in Manhattan, and how the Trump team's behaviour was aimed at making the intelligence community part of his group - his "Cosa Nostra".

As Comey wrote, "What is happening now is not normal".

Kellyanne Conway, the counselor to the president, told reporters at the White House Friday morning that Comey was taking "unnecessary immature potshots" at Trump. Trump fired Comey in May.

He states that his assumption that Mrs Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election was a factor in opening the inquiry. #President Trump's frequent Twitter rampages against Comey will surely add to the sales, and Trump will most certainly claim credit.
