Trump, aides fire back at Comey on Twitter — The Latest

President Donald Trump prepares to speak in the Oval Office last week

President Donald Trump prepares to speak in the Oval Office last week

US President Donald Trump is "morally unfit" to be president, former FBI director James Comey said in an interview broadcast Sunday. That is the core of this country. The Associated Press purchased a copy this week.

He casts Trump as a mobster-like figure who sought to blur the line between law enforcement and politics and tried to pressure him personally regarding his investigation into Russian election interference.

He received a call from then-Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly who was "very upset" with the news and was thinking about quitting too.

He also reveals new details about his interactions with Trump and his own decision-making in handling the Hillary Clinton email investigation before the 2016 election.

Trump's firing of Comey set off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation. Trump tweets: "It was my great honor to fire him".

The former FBI director also again said Trump asked for his loyalty as the FBI, but Comey, who was appointed to the job by Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, said his loyalty is supposed to be to the American people and to the institution of the FBI.

It was the passage he struggled most to read when he recorded the audio edition of his book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, which will be published Tuesday by Flatiron. Immediately afterwards the Justice Department launched the special counsel probe of Russian election meddling.

He added: "But you cannot have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure". Top White House aides also criticized the fired FBI director on Friday.

"More and more lies", Comey said.

Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who alleges she had sex with Trump and was paid for her silence, will be sitting in the courtroom.

"If he didn't know he was doing something improper, why did he kick out the attorney general. and the leaders of the intelligence community?" The retired general pleaded guilty last December and is now co-operating with Mueller's investigation. "I don't know... These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible".

"And the audience could see my face change, so they start turning around looking at the back", Comey recalled.

Comey said he took that as a "direction", adding it is possibly obstruction of justice.

"That's an affirmative act of concealment", Comey said. Rosenstein harshly criticized Comey's management of the investigation and his decision to publicly announce that the Clinton investigation had been closed in July 2016. Trump already attacked Comey on Friday, calling him "a proven LEAKER & LIAR" who should be prosecuted for leaking classified information.

James Comey says he wishes that he found a better way to explain his reasoning after concluding his investigation into Hillary Clinton's email scandal.

Asked whether he believed Mr Trump should be impeached, Mr Comey replied, "I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly".

Instead, he spent the morning in front of his White House televisions, dispatching tweet after tweet lambasting the FBI director that he fired and the allegations levied in his still-forthcoming book.

Trump has denied any such collusion.

The White House had developed a plan alongside the Republican National Committee to rebut the claims in Comey's book and impugn Comey's character, including launching a "Lyin' Comey" website and distributing talking points to surrogates.
