James Comey: 'It's possible' Russians have dirt on Trump

Trump Lied to Comey About Not Having Slept in Moscow Hotel

Trump Lied to Comey About Not Having Slept in Moscow Hotel

He seized on an excerpt shown Saturday in which Comey said his belief that Clinton would beat Trump in the 2016 presidential race was probably a factor in his decision to disclose, just days before the election, a renewed investigation into her emails.

"A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it - that person's not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds", he said.

The former FBI director also again said Trump asked for his loyalty as the FBI, but Comey, who was appointed to the job by Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, said his loyalty is supposed to be to the American people and to the institution of the FBI.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Twitter Friday: "One of the few areas of true bipartisan consensus in Washington is Comey has no credibility".

Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks there's "certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice" in the actions of President Donald Trump.

"It is stunning and I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's just - it's the truth", he says, but adds that it always has struck him as unlikely. Clinton has even remarked that if the election had been held Oct. 27, she would have been the 45th president.

There was no reaction from Trump after the interview but his pre-emptive tweets made clear his reaction to Comey's book.

Also a lawyer, Comey told ABC News that he was standing in the middle of the Los Angeles Federal Bureau of Investigation field office on May 9, 2017, thanking employees and the building's support staff for their hard work, when he saw the televisions on the wall flash "Comey Resigns".

The White House said Comey had been fired because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

Comey's interview comes in advance of publication of his new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership" on Tuesday. Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

"If you knew that letter would elect Donald Trump, you'd still send it?" He also fumed about Mueller, and considered firing the special counsel, along with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose recusal from the Russia probe led to Mueller's appointment by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

"The challenge of this president is that he will stain everyone around him".

Comey says that in his view a president must embody respect and adhere to the nation's core values, the most important being truth.

Former FBI Director James Comey in his first exclusive interview since he was fired last May said that Donald Trump was "morally unfit" to be the President of the US.

At the end, he recalled, they all shook hands "with tears in our eyes" before he got off the plane and was driven home.

Comey writes that he regrets his approach and some of the wording he used in his July 2016 press conference in which he announced the decision not to prosecute Clinton.

After Clapper briefed the team on the intelligence community's findings of Russian election interference, Comey writes, he was taken aback by what the Trump team didn't ask.

Trump has assailed Comey as a "showboat" and a "liar".

Comey said his first thought while reading the letter was, "That's crazy".

Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who alleges she had sex with Trump and was paid for her silence, will be sitting in the courtroom. "That's crazy... How could that be?" In a statement Sunday, Lynch said she was simply following longstanding Justice Department protocol against confirming or denying the existence of an investigation.

It was a test page of insults and rebuttals, a see-what-sticks strategy for a President who finds himself under increasing siege amid multiple investigations and legal battles.
