Trump morally unfit to be President: James Comey

Comey takes a swipe at Trump in plug for new book

The FBI director, who until his firing last May led an investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, acknowledged that it was "stunning" to think that Russian Federation could have damaging information about an American president.

Asked if the president wanted the Justice Department to investigate Comey, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Sunday on ABCs “This Week” that she was not aware of a specific request.

Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Clinton's email practices.

"Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama".

Trump has denied he asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the United States.Trump has also used Twitter to call Comey a liar and called for his imprisonment. The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director drew about 9.8 million viewers to his George Stephanopoulos interview on ABC. The most important being truth.

"Possibly. I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice", he said.

"I think this pejorative nature has to end", Rogers, now a CNN national security correspondent, told "New Day" co-host Alisyn Camerota of the president's tweets about Comey, who he has labeled as a "slimeball".

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is defending her actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation following criticism from Comey.

Mr Trump's adviser Kellyanne Conway accused Mr Comey of peddling a "revisionist version of history" and sinking into the "gutter" with petty comments about the size of Mr Trump's hands and the length of his tie. It's Very Persuasive. - "In his absorbing new book, "A Higher Loyalty", the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey calls the Trump presidency a "forest fire" that is doing serious damage to the country's norms and traditions". It's unusual that he's going on a book tour to trash the president of the US.

Comey also says he found out he was sacked from television reports. "So what kind of marriage to what kind of man does your wife think there's only a 99 percent chance you didn't do that?" said Comey. Trump declared on Sunday.

"I even hope that Hillary Clinton at least reads those parts of the book", he emphasized, "because I think she will walk away saying, 'You know what? I think he's morally unfit to be president".

In fact, more tangential stories like Comey's revelation that the White House chief of staff John Kelly called the president's firing of Comey "dishonorable" could have "the potential to actually affect some staffing decisions and policies", said Markay.

"Comey has a lot of tough words for Trump now, but while in the job, he sure did his best to avoid getting on Trump's bad side", wrote Clinton's former press secretary Brian Fallon on Twitter, noting contradictions in Comey's reasoning to reopen an FBI investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server.

"There's a non-zero possibility that the Russians have some, some sway over him that is rooted in his personal experience, and I don't know whether that's the business about the activity in a Moscow hotel room or finances or something else", Comey told USA Today in an interview that posted early Monday morning.

Though the two warring camps continually rehash an election that ended two years ago, trapping the American people in a perpetual nightmare between the two most disliked presidential candidates in USA history, they found common ground in questioning Comey's handling of federal investigations.
