Comey vs. Trump: Ultimate political smackdown has begun!

James Comey testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, claiming initially that he was unhappy with Comey's handling of the Clinton emails probe but subsequently claiming in a television interview that the decision was based on Comey's decision to pursue an investigation into Trump's alleged collusion with Russian Federation. His virulent attack reflected months of simmering anger against a career law enforcement bureaucrat who has emerged as one of his fiercest opponents.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017 in an act that has been under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The book also speculates about Mr. Trump's refusal to acknowledge Russia's attempt to influence the election. I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.

Trump tweeted "James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR".

Comey, who was sacked by Trump a year ago, acknowledged in the interview that his belief that Clinton would be elected president "was a factor" in his decision to reopen the email probe 11 days before the USA election, a development that Clinton blames for her surprise defeat. Major media outlets, including CNN, obtained copies of the book this week and quickly published reports on its scathing and unsparingly critical depictions of the President. Comey also revealed during the hearing that he documented his interactions with Trump because he was "concerned" that the President "might lie about the nature of our meeting".

Eagles CB Daryl Worley arrested near team facility
"We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest [Sunday] morning", the Eagles announced. While in college at West Virginia, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault after a 2014 incident at a nightclub.

Among other things, the book claims President Trump is "unethical" and "untethered to truth and institutional values".

Comey might be better seen in the light of Washington Under Trump, where other top officials expected to fade into the background have instead become powerfully vocal anti-Trump forces: Clapper (a Comey pal) and former Central Intelligence Agency directors Michael Hayden and John Brennan.

He described Trump as volatile, defensive and concerned more about his own image than about alleged Russian meddling in the presidential election.

Moscow has repeatedly denied that it interfered in the 2016 campaign in hopes of tilting the election in Trump's favor.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Comey will "be forever known as a disgraced partisan hack" after the publication of his book, "A Higher Loyalty".

Real Madrid reach CL semi-final
The closest Real Madrid came to scoring in the first half was a shot in the final seconds by Rafael Varane that hit the cross-bar. AS admitted the European champions went from "the panic to the semi-finals", while Marca simply believed: "It was a penalty".

"I picked you to be Federal Bureau of Investigation director because of your integrity and your ability", the president said, according to Comey. While Comey does not outline the details of the information - and says he didn't see indications of Lynch inappropriately influencing the investigation - he says it anxious him that the material could be used to attack the integrity of the probe and the FBI's independence.

Even when working for major figures such as NY prosecutor (and later mayor) Rudy Giuliani, President George W. Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney, Comey begins with an air of respect but develops doubts and criticism as he discovers their feet of clay. Comey asks his readers.

"I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don't know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on eachother in Moscow in 2013", Comey told ABC. And I know luxury.' He said he hadn't mistreated a long list of women, reviewing each case in detail, as he had in our earlier conversation.

The book also includes strikingly personal jabs at Trump that appear created to irritate the president.

Comey says he offered his "honest loyalty" instead.
