What James Comey Gets Wrong About Donald Trump

At the same time, it also makes Trump's claims of a partisan Comey bias against him less convincing. Hosko took particular exception with Comey's detailed description of President Donald Trump's appearance, including his likely use of tanning goggles, his hand size, and the length of his ties.

The wide-ranging interview with ABC News also came ahead of Tuesday's release of Comey's memoir, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", in which he details his interactions with the Republican president.

Former FBI Director James Comey said he believes "it's possible" that Russian Federation has compromising information on President Donald Trump. Comey writes that Trump is "ego-driven and about personal loyalty", going on to compare him to a mafia boss who demands loyalty.

Even before Comey's ABC interview, the Republican National Committee started an effort to discredit the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director on social media, in digital advertising and through a website, lyincomey.com. He considered that "the most important thing" in a president is that he tell the truth and that Trump "is not qualified for that".

Mr Trump seized on that, saying Mr Comey "was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job".

"There's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice", Comey said.

Comey's comments in an ABC News interview that aired Sunday were nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president and further erode a relationship marked by open hostility and name-calling. "This is not OK", Comey added.

A Justice Department report released last week found that McCabe "lacked candor" on four occasions when discussing the disclosure of information in a news report regarding the FBI's Clinton Foundation investigation.

Comey's book tells about the FBI investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. "His words were, though, "I hope you can let it go.' I took the expression of hope as, 'This is what I want you to do.'" "Was President Trump obstructing justice?"

Comey says Trump seemed fixated on an allegation made in a dossier compiled by a former British spy - and funded by Trump's political opponents - involving Russian prostitutes urinating on a bed in a Moscow hotel. Trump's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said last week that "one of the president's greatest achievements will go down as firing director James Comey" and Trump himself wrote on Twitter over the weekend that Comey "will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!" "I don't know. These are more words that I never thought I'd utter about a President of the United States but it's possible", Comey said in an interview that aired Sunday night on the ABC TV network. "He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on", Comey said. Mueller's team is investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 US presidential election.

FBI Director James Comey listens during testimony on Capitol Hill in Washington, March 20, 2017, before the House Intelligence Committee hearing on allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Comey's intensely personal attacks - a reflection of his self-righteousness, his detractors say - are all the more combustible because they are aimed directly at a President who has said with pride on Twitter that "when someone attacks me, I always attack back.except 100x more". He told ABC that he maybe should have said something to Trump at the time to indicate the request was inappropriate.
