Trump Slams Comey After Details Of His New Book Emerge

Trump Slams Comey As 'Weak And Untruthful Slime Ball'

James Comey described US President Donald Trump as: "his face appeared slightly orange, with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles".

Among other things, the book claims President Trump is "unethical" and "untethered to truth and institutional values".

The president accused Comey of "grandstanding" in order to make money off Trump's name.

The president insisted Comey is a "leaker and a liar" and called for him to be prosecuted for leaking "classified" information. "He lied to Congress under OATH". He is a weak and. Because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.

Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Clinton's email practices. Trump fired Comey in May, leading to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to announce the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was sacked last month, days before his retirement, following an internal review that accused him of being untruthful about his role in the leaking of damaging information on the Clinton email investigation.

But Comey wrote in his book he found her position "very odd", as she did not fully recuse herself. Trump said he would think about it and asked Comey to consider it too.

"As far as I know", the outgoing Republican leader answered. "It's possible, but I don't know", Comey told ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

Former FBI Director James Comey is set to release his new book, "A Higher Loyalty", on April 17, but excerpts have already been leaked. Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research.

Wake up to Kashmir cauldron: Mehbooba urges New Delhi
People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the BJP are the parties which jointly rule the trouble-torn State of Jammu & Kashmir. Earlier in the day, Singh also sought a CBI probe and said "what is wrong with it".

In the teaser video for the throw-down between the two, the buzz words all come out of Stephanopoulos's mouth, including mob boss, the untold knowledge that can damage Trump, obstruction of justice, and impeachment.

"Comey submitted financial documents in 2013 when the Senate was considering him for the job". Comey told the outgoing president that he would brief Trump on the salacious details of the so-called Steele dossier.

What struck him most, Comey told ABC, was that the conversation moved straight into a public relations mode, what they could say and how they would position Trump.

"It bothered him if there was "even a one percent chance" his wife, Melania, thought it was true", Comey writes. I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been.

Some of the early news coverage of Comey's memoir has made a mockery of Trump, including the cover of Friday's Daily News in NY.

Mr. Trump responded on Sunday, criticizing the admission and calling Comey a "slimeball!" 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.

James Comey's new book offers unsparing views of President Trump.

Trump may also be referring to Comey's statement under oath that he did not coordinate Clinton's exoneration with anyone outside the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Comey testified in June that he gave some of his memos of conversations he had with Trump to a Columbia University professor and that he had written the memos specifically to avoid including classified information.
