James Comey's new book has angered Democrats and Donald Trump, there are concerns over some unofficial Humboldt Broncos merchandise, and a look at the volunteers helping to prevent scams on Google Maps. Comey will discuss his memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, which is scheduled for release on Tuesday. Comey told ABC News that after this, Trump said something that distracted him: "He said, 'If there's even a one percent chance my wife thinks that's true, that's awful'".

The publication of the book has expected to bring fresh turmoil to the White House and can add to the troubles of Trump.

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".

Comey said he and Trump first met at the pre-inauguration intelligence briefing, and Trump asked him one question regarding the investigation into Russian interference: "You found there was no impact on the result, right?" "This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", Comey writes.

A Higher Loyalty, by far the most consequential book yet in the literature of the Trump presidency, is arriving as political conflict roils every aspect of that presidency.

"He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a bad Director of the FBI", Trump added in a second tweet.

Comey testified before Congress Trump's quest for loyalty made him uncomfortable.

And while Comey's personal favorability rating is weak (30% favorable, 32% unfavorable), Americans disapprove of Trump's decision to fire Comey by a 14-point margin, 47-33. Given all the slander coming from the President and his allies, it is easy to forget that Hillary Clinton was actually the candidate harmed most by Comey in the election, not Trump.

Trump even threatened Comey with jail time.

In the book, which is available April 17, Comey also reveals new details about how the government had unverified classified information that he believes could have been used to cast doubt on Attorney General Loretta Lynch's independence in the Clinton probe.

With President Donald Trump's blessing, Republicans are preparing to launch a major counter-offensive against former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, who is set to embark on a book promotion tour that could make explosive claims about Trump's conduct, according to CNN.

Trump a year ago abruptly removed Comey who was overseeing a criminal probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election that was won by him. "He mentioned a number of women, and seemed to have memorized their allegations", Comey writes.

In the ABC segment that aired Friday, Stephanopoulos also asked Comey if he had disclosed to Trump the source of funding of the dossier, compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer. "I hope folks read the whole thing and find it useful". Comey asks his readers. "He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn't possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie".

In a passage that has ruffled feathers in White House, Comey adds: "I paused and then chose to add something".
