Trump bashes Comey as 'slippery' ahead of book release

Donald Trump Tweets James Comey “Untruthful Slime Ball” In Reax To Pee Tape Talk On 'GMA' Trump bashes Comey as 'slippery' ahead of book release

"I honestly never thought this words would come out of my mouth, but I don't know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013", Comey told ABC. The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said he considered calling for a special prosecutor to be brought in to oversee the probe but decided it would be "brutally unfair" to do that. "It was my great honor to fire James Comey!".

Before Trump and Comey met alone, US intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and his advisers on Russia's election meddling.

"Does anyone really believe that story?" he said at a press conference a year ago after a reporter asked if he had ever "engaged in conduct that you now regret" during past visits to Russian Federation and whether he was vulnerable to blackmail by Russian Federation.

The interview excerpt released by ABC focused largely on that one-on-one briefing on January 6, 2017 just before Trump took office.

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.

Trump fired Comey last May.

In his tweet, Mr Trump says: "Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe".

"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.

Daryl Worley arrested, tasered after allegedly passing out in vehicle on highway
Per reports, Worley was tasered after he became "combative" with Philadelphia police and was arrested around 6 AM Sunday morning. Worley started 14 games last season for the Panthers and totaled 63 tackles and a career-high 2 interceptions.

Comey fires countless fusillades against the president who fired him in May 2017, summing up at the end: "T$3 his president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values".

In his press tour, Comey is sure to be asked to weigh in on Trump and the various twists and turns in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election as well as any potential links between Russia and Trump campaign associates.

"I think it above all is a truthful portrayal of Jim's observations, his feelings and what occurred", Clapper said. I don't know. I honestly don't know.

As for "lewd dossier allegations" the Post alludes to in its headline?

Kellyanne Conway, the counselor to the president, told reporters at the White House Friday morning that Comey was taking "unnecessary immature potshots" at Trump. The interview kicks off a media blitz by Comey to promote the release of his book. When asked about if the letter had done so, Comey said "I hope not".

"His face appeared slightly orange", Comey writes, "with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coifed, bright blond hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his".

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.
