Trump calls Comey 'Slippery' in Twitter attack, ahead of interview, book release

Right? So it's kind of consistent with him continuing to say it's not my fault. "The threats to the rule of law and the threats most of all to the truth", Comey said.

Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks it's possible the Russians have compromising information on President Donald Trump. One tweet suggested Comey should be in jail.

U.S. President Donald Trump departs after announcing military strikes on Syriduring a statement at the White House in Washington, April 13, 2018. "He may conclude that there is nothing that touches President Trump or any of his senior people", he said. I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia.

"I did not go into the business about people peeing on each other", he said.

While I think that's an interesting sentiment, I'd much prefer if this "President"-described as a constantly lying, morally unfit crime boss who is openly disdainful of women and speaks of them like they're mere objects-were removed from power sooner rather than later". In a string of sensational burns towards the president, little was off limits, from Trump's alleged tiny hands to his apparent use of "tanning goggles", in Comey's book released last week.

Significantly, he also said he thinks Trump may have engaged in obstruction of justice when he asked Comey to drop the FBI's investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

But this power, as it was outlined in the Constitution, and as it was employed by members of the founding generation in the first years of the republic, is not continued if we today imagine that presidents who are unfit, divisive, and unsafe must be allowed to remain in their positions until some distant date when accountability is finally permitted.

When Trump fired Comey in May 2017, the administration cited a memo written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein criticizing Comey's handling of the inquiry into Clinton's email server. He then looked stunned when he said, "I can't believe I'm saying this, but I don't know whether the current president of the United States had prostitutes in Moscow peeing on each other".

Mueller's team is investigating, among other charges, the possibility that Trump's firing of his FBI chief was meant to obstruct the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Comey said the Justice Department process worked well, but was "tainted" by Trump's public calls for McCabe to be fired.

In his book, Comey takes direct aim at Trump's appearance, a particularly sensitive topic for the president, although a tactic he often employs himself when insulting others. James Comey's intrusion into the Donald Trump world is one of several different fires that are going at the same time.

"The president doesn't get to decide who goes to jail", he said.

Republican Comey's reopening of the Clinton email case shortly before the election won him no friends among Democrats.

"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]", Trump posted Sunday, apparently claiming wrongly that the notes Comey wrote about private meetings with Trump and talked about publicly were classified.
