Comey Wasn't Fired For Russia Investigation — Trump

".untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI".

In one highlight, Stephanopoulos said: "You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth".

Mrs Clinton blames his decision to reopen the email probe 11 days before the 2016 election for her shock defeat.

Trump fired Comey last year and since excerpts of the book have been released, the president has unleashed a Twiter tirade.

"The View" co-host Meghan McCain ripped former FBI Director James on Wednesday for making political statements in his new book, "A Higher Loyalty", and recent interviews.

Comey "was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation", Trump said on Twitter on April 18.

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". "It's transactional, it's ego-driven, it's in service to his ego". "The leadership style is strikingly similar", said Comey.

"Why? Why wouldn't you get fired?" He might call the place: James Comey's Island! "I tried to ask the most critical questions about the critical decisions he made". But he said the president's Wednesday tweet that Comey was not dismissed because of the "phony Russia investigation" illustrates a problem the former FBI director said he's been trying to highlight during his book-promotion tour. "Does the investigation go on?"

But the book has also unleashed a torrent of attacks against Comey - accused by his critics of self-satisfied moralising.

"People have seized onto that as a distraction, so I'm answering honestly, if I had it to do over again, I would tear that paragraph out", he added.

When asked for specifics, Comey was equally monosyllabic, this time in the negative. "It's the family, the family, the family, the family".

"It's a scandalous time, in different ways", Munshi said.

Comey re-openened the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the election, which many believe cost her the White House.

Colbert said, Trump "looks like a microwave circus peanut that someone rubbed on a golden retriever". I mean it in the sense that he leads, it's all about the boss. "What is happening now is not normal". He could have been candid about his role and his ideas about how things should work.

"According to Comey, General Petraeus should have faced far more than a lone charge for mishandling classified information".

Comey's book is nothing more than a standard swamp product. "No FBI director has ever been fired as he was investigating a president", Stephanopoulos told CNNMoney. ComHeey said he did not remember "consciously thinking" about the election results as he decided to disclose that the FBI had reopened its investigation into candidate Clinton's email use.
