Scathing Comey interview provokes President Trump

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill

Mr Comey is embarking on a public rollout of his book, A Higher Loyalty, which comes out on Tuesday.

ABC published the full transcript of the interview on its website.

Trump and the Republicans have sought to stifle the impact of his book by accusing Comey of leaking classified materials and of corruptly handling the 2016 investigation into Clinton.

When he was still Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, Comey briefed Trump on the details of a dossier - portions of which remain unconfirmed - that was commissioned as opposition research during the 2016 election and compiled by a former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele.

Asked if the president wanted the Justice Department to investigate Comey, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that she was not aware of a specific request. "People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values". McCabe was sacked last month, two days before he was due to retire.

Two years after the election, the two USA political parties remain entrenched in tribalism, with representatives from both halves angry at Comey. Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary. "You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth", noted the ABC newsman.

Dan Kovalik, a human rights and labor lawyer, told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear that Comey's new book has made him "a hero of liberals in the United States". The book isn't out so you don't know what's in it. 2.

Trump did not bother to show the "many crimes" they supposedly committed.

None of those utterances, however, was as telling as what Comey said after Stephanopoulos reminded him that the president had called him a liar.


This is the clip Comey was referring to - a campaign rally where a crowd member joked that a dog-like sound was Hillary Clinton, to Trump's amusement. There is no proof, however, that Bill Clinton offered Lynch a job or a favor to ease off the investigation into his wife. But, she said, “if they feel there was any wrongdoing, they should certainly look into that just as they do on a number of other topics.”. Comey said he did not remember “consciously thinking” about the election results as he chose to disclose that the FBI had reopened its investigation into candidate Clintons email use.

Comey re-openened the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the election, which many believe cost her the White House. Muellers probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

"We know the Russians are trying to influence the 2018 elections", he told Camerota.

"I never asked Comey for personal loyalty". You know you're in unusual waters when the Republican National Committee dedicates a section of its web site to "Lyin Comey", a piling on of anti-Comey criticism, before the book is even officially released. "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!" Mueller's team is investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election.

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past".

"I remember wondering how long it must take him in the morning to get that done". "All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"

So, what was there left to discuss when George Stephanopoulos of ABC News sat down with Comey for an extended interview that played out in a prime-time special on Sunday night?

Hours before the interview was shown, the president, who sacked Mr Comey past year, unleashed a Twitter outburst that labelled him "slippery", suggested he should be put in jail and branded him "the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"
