Trump 'morally unfit' for office: Ex-FBI chief Comey

James Comey gives first interview since President Trump fired him James Comey Says There's "Some Evidence" Donald Trump Obstructed Justice

WASHINGTON -Former FBI Director James Comey came out swinging against President Trump in a scathing interview Sunday night to promote Comey's new tell-all book, A Higher Loyalty.

When asked if the Russians had something on Trump, Comey said: "I think it's possible".

Comey, in his own telling, says he likely treated Clinton more harshly because the polls showed that she was likely to win the presidential election.

President Donald Trump is again calling former FBI Director James Comey a "slimeball" ahead of the publication of his new book.

He said he thinks it's possible the Russians have something that could compromise Trump. Trump on Sunday rejected Comey's assertion that Trump had sought his loyalty at a January 2017 dinner, saying "I hardly even knew this guy".

Comey led the federal probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election before he was sacked by Trump. "This president is not able to do that", he said. "It's possible", he said.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump tried to obstruct justice as part of his intensifying Russian Federation probe, and the exchange with Comey could be a key part of his case.

The dismissal, the memo, and Comey's subsequent Congressional testimony were interpreted by some commentators as evidence of obstruction of justice by the us president, and became part of a widening investigation by Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel appointed to probe Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"He looked a little shaky", Ms Conway said of Mr Comey, on ABC's Good Morning America.

They defended very well, were well organised and tried to counter quickly behind us. "It wasn't just one mistake, it was a few". After the game, Gunners goalie Petr Cech said the defeat summed up life away from the Emirates Stadium.

He also said there was nothing particularly noteworthy in the size of Trump's hands. He continued: "I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".

But Trump said in a tweet before the interview aired that he never asked for personal loyalty.

The attack on Twitter was essentially a continuation of Trump's tweets Friday, when he called Comey "a proven LEAKER & LIAR" and a "untruthful slime ball".

Comey, 57, was explosive in the very first television interview that he gave since his dismissal in May 2017, less than four years after he took charge as the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief during the reign of Barack Obama.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway criticized Comey on Monday.

Lynch also says that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation.

So there's a thing, a set of values that's above our normal fights, and what I'm anxious about with this president is he threatens those.

Trump told Comey that he had not stayed overnight in the Moscow hotel and that the claims were not true, Comey said.

And Comey said the president may have obstructed justice when he asked him to drop an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. On Sunday, the president called Comey "slippery" and said he would "go down as the WORST FBI director in history, by far!" And just to give a sense of what's typical, when an attorney's documents are scooped up - and this is not - it's not common for attorney's documents to get scooped up - a so-called taint team of prosecutors not involved in the case reviews them before they're handed over to investigators.
