Comey: Trump Is 'Morally Unfit to Be President'

President Donald Trump hurled a new set of insults on James Comey on Sunday, challenging accusations the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director makes in a tell-all book that is due for release this week and insisting that he never pressed Comey to be loyal to him.

Trump criticized Comey's assertion that his decisions in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails were based on assumption she would win the 2016 election.

Former FBI Director James Comey might drive President Donald Trump into a meltdown, according to Axios founder Mike Allen.

Comey also defended his decision to publicly disclose the FBI's re-opening of its investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's handling of email when she was secretary of state.

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

This is a golden season for anyone who likes seeing Donald Trump squirm.

Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, has been on Amazon bestseller lists for the past four weeks and, as of Monday morning, is No. 20 on the retailer's top non-fiction sales. I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been.


In the interview that aired Sunday, Comey said that he would not favor impeaching Trump to remove him from office, because that "would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty-bound to do directly" - meaning through elections.

On Sunday, Trump fired off several tweets slamming Comey before spending a few hours at his golf club in Northern Virginia. You have to be between me and the president'.

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

"James Comey's publicity tour reaffirms that his true higher loyalty is to himself", Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, said in a statement.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, asked Comey if he had ever "been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?" or if he had ever "authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?" The former are vital to the Russian Federation investigation and the questions it raises, including whether Trump obstructed justice. Trump had denied asking Comey to stop investigating Flynn.

Comey reiterated that he hoped such tapes existed and said the secretive nature of the meeting might imply Trump knew he was flouting convention. Talking to George Stephanopoulos herself on Monday, Conway enumerated all the reasons Comey was unreliable and untrustworthy, including: "This guy swung an election".

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pushed back against Comey's criticism in the book that, early in the Clinton email inquiry, she had instructed him to refer to it as a "matter" rather than an "investigation". Flynn and two of the president's campaign aides, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, have pleaded guilty and are cooperating with Mueller.
