Trump 'morally unfit' for office

Trump 'morally unfit' for office

In interviews and excerpts from the book itself, Comey's take on Trump is damning.

Comey went on, saying Trump is "ego-driven and about personal loyalty", comparing the President a mafia boss.

Confronted with a con man - the greatest and most risky con man on earth - James Comey, the ultimate cop, carefully noted every move Donald Trump made.

"The big questions in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (why didn't they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe's $700,000 & more?".

Trump has denied he asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the United States.Trump has also used Twitter to call Comey a liar and called for his imprisonment. Following this, interviewer George Stephanopoulos: "You can't say for certain that the president of the United States is not compromised by the Russians?" "Donald Trump's presidency threatens much of what is good in this nation", Comey writes. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Framing his choice as between "speak" and "conceal", he argued that if it only came out after the election that the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clinton's emails, that would "destroy the institutions that I love".

Comey, who is promoting his new book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, out Tuesday, did not elaborate on his claim about Trump's treatment of women. He didn't have any insight into the case, at least as far as I know, more than anybody reading the newspaper did, which was zero 'cause there were no leaks. It was the same impulse he displayed in his 2016 news conference excoriating Hillary Clinton for her email practices (while also announcing that she would not face charges). He stopped short of calling for Trump's impeachment because whether he remains in office "should be up to the American people". She also said that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation. Trump declared on Sunday.

Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's reaction was that Comey has "been proven to be dishonest", and has "such a lack of credibility".

"I wish that Mr. Comey reflected a little bit more deeply and maybe called what he did a mistake because I think it was", Mook told CNN last week in response to the publication of Comey's book A Higher Loyalty.

Comey said the FBI opened its counterintelligence investigation into potential Russian election interference in July 2016, triggered by discussions that George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser, had in London.

Yet Comey, who was sacked by Trump last spring while investigating Russia's role in the election that put Trump in the White House, says it's unlikely Trump has been compromised by Russian Federation. While Trump vehemently denied the salacious allegation, telling Comey, by Comey's account, "Do I look like a guy who needs hookers" (charming!), Comey can not say for sure that there isn't truth in the dossier's account. That was a driving reason he chose to leak a memo that triggered the appointment of Mueller as special counsel. Comey said in the interview that Trump is "morally unfit" for office.

Though the two warring camps continually rehash an election that ended two years ago, trapping the American people in a perpetual nightmare between the two most disliked presidential candidates in US history, they found common ground in questioning Comey's handling of federal investigations.
