Comey claims Russians may have compromising information on Trump

17 Avril 2018

Comey has faced harsh criticism from both Republicans and Democrats and his book gives him a chance to defend his actions, according to CNN.

Comey is embarking on a public rollout of his book, "A Higher Loyalty", which comes out Tuesday.

On Sunday, before the ABC interview aired, Comey tweeted that his book draws on stories from his life and from lessons he has learned from others.

Comey also discussed the briefing of Trump's alleged pee tape, describing the meeting with the president over the matter as "really weird" and like an "out of body experience".

The sense that the clash between a disruptive President who marches to his own tune and traditional establishment values is becoming serious heightened over the weekend after Comey, who was sacked by Trump, purportedly for not professing loyalty to the President, attacked him for moral turpitude and suggested he may be compromised because of this. "He had impressively coiffed, bright blond hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his", Comey writes. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken.

As for Trump's request that he drop the FBI's investigation into Flynn, which POTUS denies ever happened, Comey said "it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".

"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said. Mueller's team is investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Meantime, Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen was in a NY courtroom arguing that documents seized by authorities last week contained materials protected by Attorney client privilege. Trump said on Twitter early Sunday. And he's not mincing words.

If anything, the Comey book tour is a lesson in 21st century media saturation. He calls him "untethered to truth", "unethical" and a "forest fire" burning through the foundation of American democracy, norms and values. The most important being truth.

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!

As hordes of Americans commuted to 9-5 jobs the morning following Comey's ABC interview, President Donald Trump condemned Comey-who insisted Trump was "morally unfit" for the presidency after allegedly demanding a "loyalty" pledge from him.

"These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", Comey told ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, as reported by AP. But the book and his interview reveal some telling details. "My loyalty's supposed to be to the American people and to the institution", Comey said in the interview.

"To me that kind of salacious commentary diminishes Jim Comey, raises more questions about his true desire here", Hosko continued. You can't be kicked out of the room so he can talk to me alone. "No way", Comey quotes the president as saying. "You can't say for certain that the president of the United States is not compromised by the Russians?"

Once the election was over though, and whispers of Russian influence turned into a full-scale scandal, the relationship between Trump and his Federal Bureau of Investigation chief quickly turned sour.

Lynch also says that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation. Stephanopoulos asked. "Possibly", he said.
