Former FBI Director James Comey joins Stephen Colbert on The Late Show

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill

Comey told ABC News that the title of the book came from a "bizarre conversation" he had with Trump at the White House in January 2017 shortly after his inauguration. The interview will air Sunday night on ABC.

"Fired FBI Director James Comey spoke exclusively to ABC News" George Stephanopoulos ahead of the release of his new book "A Higher Loyalty", citing "some evidence of obstruction of justice" in President Donald Trump's actions and speculating that Russians might have dirt on the president.

The exclusive interview is Comey's first since being fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation by Trump. Asked whether Comey was a man of integrity, the Republican speaker said: "As far as I know", but added that he did not know him well.

"There's something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country", Comey said."The most important being truth.This president is not able to do that".

Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks it's possible that President Donald Trump might be compromised by the Russians.

Comey also testified previous year that he gave some of his memos of conversations he had with Trump to a Columbia University professor, but that he had written the memos specifically to avoid including classified information.

In his book, Comey deferred to the Mueller investigation on the question of obstruction. The move led the Justice Department to appoint Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation, which Trump has denounced as a "witch hunt". "They didn't talk to each other for five full years", he said. It's transactional, it's ego-driven, it's in service to his ego.

And then Clinton camp thinks I was trying to shiv Hillary Clinton. Comey has claimed that Trump fired him after he requested his loyalty during a private dinner.


Monday morning, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway criticized Comey for peddling a "revisionist version of history".

Comey recounted in the interview another meeting where he said Trump asked for his loyalty. If I ever start considering whose political fortunes will be affected by a decision, we're done.

Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA election and any potential ties between Trump campaign and Russia. I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.

"It's possible, but I don't know".

"No", Comey replied when asked if he still considered himself a Republican.

In the ABC interview, Mr Comey had kinder things to say about Mr Trump's brainpower, saying he did not think the President suffered from mental incompetence or was in the early stages of dementia. "This President does not reflect the values of this country".

"(Firing Mueller) would, I hope, set off alarm bells that this is (Trump's) most serious attack yet on the rule of law".
