Trump bashes Comey as 'slippery' ahead of book release

Former FBI director James Comey told associates Donald Trump was

Throughout the interview, Comey stressed the importance of telling the truth, a theme in his book.

Comey answered "possibly" when asked whether the president was attempting to obstruct justice when he asked Comey to end an FBI investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Just ahead of Comey's interview, Mr. Trump fired off a series of tweets Sunday morning labeling Comey a "slimeball" and "WORST FBI Director in history, by far", while the president also said he "hardly even knew this guy".

Comey made the revelation during his first major interview following his ouster previous year.

Lynch also says that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation.

This is the worst I have ever felt in my career, without a doubt. "I wouldn't have been happy if I was taken off". Asked what he thought the defeat meant for his own position, he said: "I'm not going to talk about my role".

Former FBI Director James Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty, "drops" (as they say in the publishing industry) this week - specifically, tomorrow, April 17.

Comparing the President to a mafia boss, he claimed that Trump was left vulnerable to blackmail and exploitation by the Russian government because of his association with Russian prostitutes and that he was burning up the nation's norms and traditions like a "wildfire". I'm leading the investigation of Russian influence-in particular, whether anyone in the Trump orbit had coordinated and conspired with the Russians.

In a meeting with President Barack Obama in the last days of his administration, Comey says he told the president: "I dread the next four years". On May 11, The New York Times published an article citing "Comey's associates", who describe Comey recounting a January 27 dinner in which Trump allegedly said to him, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty". "I don't follow him on Twitter, but I'm sure it's going to come", Comey said.

"That mystified me even after President Trump became president, 'cause I discovered that he wouldn't criticize him even in private", Comey said. I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back.

Gergen said Comey's book could "change the narrative" about the Trump presidency.

Kono said he and Wang agreed that their countries need to further develop bilateral relations in order to stabilize the waters. Wang, who will be in Tokyo until Tuesday, will also take part in the fourth China-Japan High-level Economic Dialogue.

He added: "But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure. He is morally unfit to be President".

In a series of tweets Sunday morning, Trump declared that Comey deserved jail time for allegedly leaking classified information and lying to Congress, less than 48 hours before Comey's memoir of his years in the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation, including the barely 100 days in which he served in the Trump administration, hits the shelves in bookstores throughout the United States.

He added that USA citizens need to "fight" for American values, and that "impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that".

He later said, though, that he did not believe Rosenstein would fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller if ordered by Trump to do so, and that Rosenstein "has an opportunity in overseeing Bob Mueller to restore some of his professional reputation". In addition to looking into whether the campaign colluded with Moscow during the 2016 election, Mueller is also examining whether Trump sought to obstruct justice when he fired Comey previous year. "This president is not able to do that", Comey added.

Trump's tweets included numerous allegations that are unproven and unverified. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. I can not say that, ' Comey replied.
