But he said in Trump's case, he could not discount the possibility that the president had been compromised. I mean, that's- that mystified me even after President Trump became president 'cause I discovered that he wouldn't criticize him even in private, which- I can understand a president making a geopolitical decision that, "I ought not to criticize an adversary country's leader for some reason publicly".
"After tonight, I hope people know more about what James Comey has been thinking and feeling since that day", he said.
The former FBI Director who was sacked by the president past year sat down with ABC News'George Stephanopoulos and for the first timeshared with America his take on Trump.
'He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on, ' said Comey.
Comey alleged Trump is like a mob boss, who measures a man by his loyalty. "That could be obstruction of justice'".
"I find it hard to believe that Bill Clinton would've tried to obstruct justice by walking across the tarmac in front of.in front of a bunch of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents up the. stairs and onto an Federal Bureau of Investigation plane", he said. "The president just kicked out the attorney general to ask me to drop a criminal investigation.' Wow, the world continues to go insane".
He toldABC that Mr Trump had told him I expect loyalty, I need loyalty during an awkward dinner at the White House. "This president is not able to do that", he said, according to AFP report. So I've met him two or three times in two or three briefings.
He was sacked by Trump in May 2017. She also said that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation.
"They were about to lead a country that had been attacked by a foreign adversary, yet they had no questions about what the future Russian threat might be", Comey writes. "And I think that's why this is a blockbuster night". "Come with me, and sit there with me", he said. That's why he says he held news conferences on the Clinton email probe without consulting Lynch. He says he agrees now with the criticism that his remarks muddied important issues.
"Yes", Comey replied. "But not in the way - I often hear people talk about it".
Comey also reflected on the controversy over Hillary Clinton's personal email account. To wit: in a particularly convoluted corner of the president's brain, Comey intervened in the final days of the 2016 election on behalf of Hillary Clinton - not against her - because he wanted a job from her.
Trump's morning tweet comes ahead of Comey's interview with ABC to be broadcast in full on Sunday evening.
"I don't know what they talked about".
Possibly maybe. More importantly, he now looks like a guy who needs an impeachment lawyer.
"I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning", he declared under oath.
"Had you shifted to collecting evidence of a crime?" If there were people who were secretly trying to protect Hillary Clinton, we didn't know about it.
Trump said Comey handled the probe "stupidly". It was recorded last Monday at Comey's home in suburban Washington. But, she said, "if they feel there was any wrongdoing, they should certainly look into that just as they do on a number of other topics".
