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

It would seem that Comey, now free to express his disdain for Trump, would have a special power as Trump's exact opposite, not just a nemesis but someone whose core traits are diametrically opposed to the President's own. According to The Washington Post, Comey writes that the president told him: "I'm a germaphobe ... It would be to the everlasting shame of partisans if they were unable to see that higher level and to protect it". Comey described being struck that the president and his staff never expressed any interest in Russian election-meddling and how to prevent it again.

"And he interrupted very defensively and started talking about it, you know, 'Do I look like a guy who needs hookers?'"

"And - and I remember thinking, 'ell, should I say that, 'As I understand the activity sir, it doesn't require an overnight stay".

"And I have every confidence that Jim Comey accurately copied, collected, recounted what exactly went on during those discussions", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said.

Trump fired off a series of tweets early Sunday ahead of an interview Comey did with ABC that was set to air in full Sunday evening.

So, beyond obstruction of justice, the boasts of pussy-grabbing, or even a possible pee-pee tape, Mr Comey simply believes Donald Trump's essential nature makes him unsuitable to be Commander in Chief. "Impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that".

Trump has already lashed out at Comey's upcoming book, saying the "badly reviewed book" raised "big questions".

The US president also returned to the raid conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation against the home and offices of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, declaring, "Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past".

His probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Mr Comey.

As he has in the past, Comey offered a vigorous defence of his handling of the Clinton email investigation.

All rather ironic then that probably more than anyone else, James Comey made Donald Trump President of the United States.

James Comey is embarking on a publicity tour.

Comey also said he believed that Trump was "morally unfit" to be president and that he treated women like "pieces of meat".

Because of that Comey said he believed it "was important that we try to understand [the dossier], and see what could we verify". It will be released Tuesday. Reuters and other news outlets have obtained copies of Comey's book before its formal release. No, Comey doesn't think Trump "is out breaking legs or shaking down shopkeepers", but he says the leadership culture is similar: "You are judged entirely by your fealty, your loyalty, to that boss".

The President and his allies have launched a forceful counterattack. "Just another of his many lies", Mr Trump tweeted, adding that he would go down as the "worst FBI Director in history, by far".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders also took on Comey on Sunday during an appearance on ABC's This Week. "If you hide the fact that you have restarted the Hillary Clinton email investigation, not in some silly way but in a very, very important way that may lead to a different conclusion, what will happen to the institutions of justice when that comes out?"

It didn't turn out to be publicly recognized till after the 2016 presidential election. But Comey writes in his book that after the 2016 election, then-President Obama told Comey that he remained confident in his "integrity" and "ability".

He also appeared to cite Comey's testimony before Congress a year ago, in which he told Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican of Iowa, that he had never been an anonymous source to the press nor had he authorized someone else to do the same. In a written statement to the committee, Comey claimed that Trump had asked him for "loyalty".

Trump recently accused Comey of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to Congress under oath.

Trump has denied having asked Comey for his loyalty.

Having announced an end to the inquiry in July 2016, Mr. Comey revealed on October 28, just days before the election, that the F.B.I. was again investigating the case. "Just another of his many lies", Trump said on Twitter.
