In TV interview, Comey says Trump is 'morally unfit' to be president

President Trump Lashes Out Again at'Slimeball James Comey on TwitterMore

Comey provided the assessment in an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that aired Sunday night.

Comey was sacked by the President previous year in the midst of the FBI's investigation into whether Trump's campaign associates colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

President Donald Trump is renewing his attacks on James Comey after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's scathing interview on ABC. The president began assailing Comey even before the interview came out. It would be something that ... is higher than all the normal fights about policy.

The President denies those claims.

Trump has also repeatedly zeroed in on the former deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe's admission that he authorized an agent to speak anonymously to the press.

"If you knew that letter would elect Donald Trump, you'd still send it?"

"Now in hindsight, given the challenges I had with President Trump and his frustrations that I wouldn't publicly say he's not under investigation, I think the better argument is it was a mistake". "I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's the truth". "It's possible, but I don't know".

Released Eagles CB Daryl Worley faces six charges
The Eagles officially announced his release hours after the news of his arrest were reported by NFL Network. He was the Panthers' third-round draft pick in 2016 and started 25 games over two seasons.

It was a hard task for the producers and editors - but they conveyed Comey's complex decision-making as Federal Bureau of Investigation director and his complicated feelings about President Donald Trump, who fired him last May. On Sunday, Trump similarly suggested Comey's handling of the Clinton case seemed to be based on the assumption she would win.

He explained: 'I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly. "Impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that".

After confirming the Federal Bureau of Investigation found no manipulation of vote count, Comey said he was surprised when the briefing turned to a "PR conversation".

"I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been", Comey said. Lindsey Graham (R- S.C.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) who found transcripts in August showing that Comey had drafted a statement rejecting charges be filed against Clinton, about two months before Clinton ever spoke with FBI investigators.

Trump has "impressively coifed hair, "it looks to be all his", Comey said. I think he's morally unfit to be president", he added.

Comey is embarking on a public rollout of his book, "A Higher Loyalty", which comes out Tuesday.

Macmillan, the publishing house behind the book, has ordered an initial print run of 850,000 copies, expecting super-charged sales.

The indictment says the charges are based on evidence obtained from Brunson's phone, as well as information from witnesses. North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis and Sam Brownback, U.S. ambassador-at-large for religious freedoms, observed the trial.

In the book, Comey said the president asked him to be loyal, writing: "This President is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values".

The President and his allies have launched a forceful counterattack.

Trump recently accused Comey of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to Congress under oath. "He lied to Congress", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". He'll no doubt sell a lot of books to them even if they're still secretly stewing that he lost Hillary Clinton the election with his late-game announcement about her investigation. Clinton herself has pointed to Comey's actions in explaining her presidential election loss.

It is as if Comey believes that electing Trump was a kind of moral failing by the entire country - a sin that voters must pay for, until Election Day 2020 presents an opportunity for redemption.

The publicity tour - and the book - will be the first time the American public has heard extensively from Comey since his explosive testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June of past year. On Monday, he returned to Twitter to accuse Comey and "others" of committing "many crimes". Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Comey's May 2017 testimony when he told Grassley that he had never been an anonymous source to the news media.

Stephanopoulos asked him whether Mr Trump is fit to be President of the United States.
