James Comey's full 20/20 interview

James Comey's full 20/20 interview

The Republican National Committee also created a website, lyincomey.com, using an insult first used in a tweet by Trump, to attack Comey. "It would be to the everlasting shame of partisans if they were unable to see that higher level and to protect it".

The President and his allies have launched a forceful counterattack.

"Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!". He'll no doubt sell a lot of books to them even if they're still secretly stewing that he lost Hillary Clinton the election with his late-game announcement about her investigation. Comey informed Trump about the allegations in private before his inauguration several times, and he writes in his book that Trump was obsessed with disproving them.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway criticized Comey on Monday.

It's hard to believe the White House was surprised by anything Comey said, Haberman noted and thinks it will blow over rather quickly.

Trump cited Comey's handling of the Clinton e-mail probe in firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief in April 2017 - a decision that led to the appointment of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller to investigate allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials during the campaign.

Comey, speaking to ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, touched on numerous scandals that have plagued the Trump administration over the past 16 months, including the Russian Federation dossier and the litany of sexual misconduct allegations leveled at the president.

Comey has indeed faced criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike - and the release of his book gives him a high-profile platform to defend himself. He seized on an excerpt shown Saturday in which Comey said his belief that Clinton would beat Trump in the 2016 presidential election was probably a factor in his decision to disclose the investigation into her emails. He said, like others, he expected Clinton would win throughout the general election, saying he was seeing the same polling data that led many political experts to predict she would be the 45th president. But Comey writes in his book that after the 2016 election, then-President Obama told Comey that he remained confident in his "integrity" and "ability".

Last year, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. If you're not watching American Idol or The Good Fight, you're watching a special interview about the moral bankruptcy of Donald Trump. "His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty".

The FBI chief was sacked while the agency was probing possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia's meddling in the USA election. "There's a part of this he enjoys but I don't think that there is a huge wave of shock about anything Comey said". Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Considering more of the president's associates turn up under investigation or indicted by the day-some of whom are now cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe after getting caught lying to the FBI-this notion of a stain doesn't seem far off.
