Trump slams former FBI director as 'slime ball' over deeply critical book

James Comey described US President Donald Trump as

Fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey lashed out at Donald Trump in an interview with ABC broadcast Sunday, calling him "morally unfit" to be president and describing him as a serial liar who will "stain everyone around him".

His comments will nearly certainly escalate his war of words with the president and further erode a relationship marked by open hostility and name-calling.

"He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a bad Director of the FBI", Trump added. The firing ultimately led to the appointment of Robert Mueller to direct a special counsel inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election and potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, citing the FBI's behavior in investigating Democrat Hillary Clinton and its probe into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation to tilt the 2016 presidential election. He said the FBI was investigating the matter when Trump fired him.

"I started to tell him about the allegation was that he had been involved with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow in 2013", Comey says in the clip.

Ayone who can see "moral equivalence" in protests by white supremacists and people who oppose them, who treats women like "pieces of meat" and who "lies constantly" and insists Americans believe it is "not fit to be president of the United States on moral grounds", Comey said in an interview on ABC.

Former FBI Director James Comey says our president must be truthful - and Comey contends he is not able to do that. However, he conceded that he "should've worked harder to find a way to convey that it's more than just the ordinary mistake, but it's not criminal behavior".

- I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty. "No FBI director has ever been fired as he was investigating a president", Stephanopoulos told CNNMoney. 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".

The allegation in Trump's tweets about Comey leaking classified information appears to be a reference to Comey passing along to a friend a memo about his interactions after Trump fired him.

Comey acknowledged that it is possible that Russian Federation has compromising information about the president.

U.S. President Donald Trump departs after announcing military strikes on Syriduring a statement at the White House in Washington, April 13, 2018.

In the waning days of the 2016 presidential election, Comey wrote a letter to Congress outlining the existence of hundreds of thousands of Hillary Clinton's emails discovered on a laptop belonging to disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose wife, Huma Abedin, was a long-time Clinton adviser. But Comey couldn't possibly have tipped the election to such a man because his actions possibly made no difference.

"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe".

The Republican National Committee has helped with the pushback effort against Comey for his book by launching a website and supplying surrogates with talking points that question his credibility.

Lynch says she was simply following long-standing Justice Department protocol against confirming or denying the existence of an investigation.

Two Republican and two Democratic senators introduced a bill to make it more hard and time-consuming for Trump to fire Mueller, titled the "Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act", last week. So far, 19 people - including Flynn and Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort -have been charged in the investigation.
