Trump 'morally unfit' to be President, says fired Federal Bureau of Investigation boss James Comey

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director is planning a series of media appearances to promote his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", starting with an ABC News interview airing Sunday evening at 10 p.m., ET.

A new poll has found almost 50 per cent of Americans find former FBI Director James Comey more believable than President Donald Trump. Trump lambasted Comey as a man who "will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

Earlier Sunday, Trump had preempted Comey's interview with a series of angry tweets.

"The conversation, to my surprise, moved into a PR conversation about how the Trump team would position this and what they could say about this", Comey says.

The book's imminent release - and the slated ABC News interview - prompted Trump to hurl a new set of insults at Comey earlier on Sunday, challenging accusations made in the book, and insisting that he never pressed Comey to be loyal to him.

"These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible (the Russians have something on Trump)".

Asked whether Comey is someone he would describe as a "slime ball" - a term Trump has used twice in tweets - Ryan said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that "I don't speak like that".

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

Comey said he believed from the outset in the credibility of the source, former a British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. She also took issue with some of Comey's personal commentary in the book, saying it was "no way to comport oneself after you're trying to prove that you have this quote, 'higher loyalty'".

Comey's explosive book, which is apparently highly critical of Trump, will hit the bookshelves next week.

The President rubbished the claim on Twitter, calling it another of his many lies. But he did admit that he thought there was some level of obstruction of justice involved when Trump cleared the Oval Office so he could ask him to drop the FBI's investigation into Michael Flynn.

It's the first sit-down, televised interview Comey has given since he was sacked by President Donald Trump past year and the first in a series of interviews he will sit for in the coming weeks.

"And the audience could see my face change, so they start turning around looking at the back", Comey recalled. Trump spoke in monologues, he said, but did not listen.

"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said.

"I'm not an unusually strong person but I work out and so I tighten my abs and my core and I'm thinking, 'Unless he's a lot stronger than he looks, he's not getting a hug.' And so he pulls and he doesn't get the hug", Comey said.

When Trump fired Comey in May 2017, the administration cited a memo written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein criticizing Comey's handling of the inquiry into Clinton's email server. And I'm about to talk to him about allegations that he was involved with prostitutes in Moscow and that the Russians taped it and have leverage over him.

"I knew this was a no-win situation, this case".

"I'm not going to try and help sell some books here", Ryan said. His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!'

The former FBI director said he still would've sent the letter reopening the investigation into the emails before the 2016 election, even though Clinton and her team blamed it for her loss.
