Assumption Clinton would win a factor in email probe — Former FBI head

Comey Trump asked me to investigate ‘pee tape’ to reassure Melania

"It bothered him if there was "even a one percent chance" his wife, Melania, thought it was true", Comey writes.

Some have compared this book to the previous release of the Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury", [VIDEO] but as Wolff has always been known to play loose with facts, the Comey book is certain to carry more weight. "It was my great honor to fire James Comey!". The president appears to be referring to passages in A Higher Loyalty in which Comey wrote that he had a "tortured half-in, half-out approach" to the investigation into Clinton's emails. "Really weird. It was nearly an out of body experience for me". The president's tweets - which also targeted Loretta Lynch, the attorney general under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama - came hours before a lengthy interview with the ex-FBI head was to air on ABC Sunday night. In addition, Comey says he and the president sparred over Trump's complimentary words regarding Vladimir Putin and his suggestion in an interview that the US was also guilty of illegal killings.

Trump wrote on Twitter Friday: "He is a weak and unethical slimeball who was, as time has proven, a bad Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty".

But the pressure on the president regarding all these problems dissipated by the end of the week, as Trump received a priceless present from the man he must have least expected to proffer one: James Comey.

Trump has vehemently denied that the incident occurred or that such a tape exists, and according to Comey, Trump told him in January 2017 that he may want him to investigate it to prove that the incident didn't occur. Republicans will say on this basis that if Democrats now seize on Comey's criticism of Trump, it's inconsistent. "It's possible, but I don't know".

House Republicans have repeatedly threatened to hold Justice Department officials in contempt as they have sought more than a million pages in documents related to Democrat Hillary Clinton and the beginning of the department's Russian Federation investigation. CNN reports Comey's publisher, Flatiron, bumped up the release date to April 17 from May 1, citing massive interest for the book.

Mr Comey was sacked from his position as Director of the FBI in May 2017, before being replaced by Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation. I remember wondering how long it must take him in the morning to get that done.

"We find Mr. Comey has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntlement ex-employee", Conway told reporters outside the White House.

In his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee past year, Comey said he believes the President asked him to "drop any investigation of Flynn", a reference to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Very soon, the book will be out, and the country will buy it in droves, and decide where Comey's loyalty lies.
