How Much Is James Comey Worth?

6 bonkers revelations from the just-released Comey Memos. Buckle

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.

Mr Comey has painted Mr Trump as "morally unfit" to be USA president, and suggested he may have obstructed justice by trying to pressure him into dropping any investigation into Mr Flynn. Comey had been investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election when he was axed.

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). According to the newspaper, Comey himself redacted portions of one memo before sharing it, and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials later upgraded the classification of the other memo as "confidential", the lowest level of classification.

The Comey saga gained momentum Thursday with the release of his memos on meetings with Trump.

"I don't know exactly how many there are", Comey told Tapper.

Flynn was sacked February 13, 2017, after White House officials said he had misled them about his Russian contacts during the transition period by saying that he had not discussed sanctions.

"The President said "the hookers thing" is nonsense, but that Putin had told him 'we have some of the most lovely hookers in the world, '" according to one memo. The friend then passed them on to a reporter for The New York Times. Toobin drew some comparisons between what Comey may have done and what the former Secretary of State did with her emails.

The Comey memos have been made public at last.

The top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee disagrees, saying the memos prove President Trump interfered in a "blatant effort to deny justice".

With this latest move and the Comey book media blitz, the public pretty much has the full breadth of the former director's side of the story - and, quite clearly, what he now thinks of the president's behaviour. A few days later, CNN broke the news about the dossier with the hook that Comey had briefed Trump about it.

Mr. Clevenger, who obtained the documents, said it's now clear Mr. Comey was a partisan - but said he was surprised the notification to Congress in October 2016 would spark an OSC probe.

Bromwich decried Trump's "continuing slander" against McCabe. Comey agreed that the leaks were "terrible" and he was "eager to find leakers and would like to nail one to the door as a message".

Meanwhile, Comey is scheduled to speak at Amazon's corporate headquarters next week to talk about his new book.
