Trump 'morally unfit' for office, says former FBI chief

Mr Trump used the investigation as a cudgel in the campaign and repeatedly said Mrs Clinton should be jailed for using a personal email system while serving as Secretary of State. The interview will air Sunday night on ABC. "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".

It came ahead of Mr Comey's first interview on the book, which offers his version of the events surrounding his firing as FBI director by Mr Trump and the investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton's email practices. The U.N. said at that time it was virtually impossible to accurately verify how many people had died. But at the urging of his new national security adviser, John Bolton, Trump scrapped the trip to remain at home.

Asked whether he believed Trump ought to be impeached, Comey said that was a political and legal question.

"And so I was worried about the organization, worried about the people", Comey told Stephanopoulos. "It was almost as if he were saying, 'Good luck with that'". There's no doubt there was smoke around that.

"My family's had a lot of fun watching my face as I walk across, because they know that's my "oh no" face", said Comey, adding that his wife, Patricia, has watched the video and said, "That's Jim's 'oh s-t' face".

All rather ironic then that probably more than anyone else, James Comey made Donald Trump President of the United States.

Everything in the man's history - and his fastidious habits of contemporaneous note-taking, combined with immediate briefing of his core team- says that James Comey is a straight-arrow, whose dependability for truthfulness is likely way at the top of the spectrum. Tim Kaine, D-Va., In the book, Comey describes President Trump as a "bully" who is "untethered to truth" and compares his inner circle to the mafia, "lying about all things, large and small". "He thought Hillary Clinton would win and he thought that this would give him some cover", she said. The president was briefed following the July 7 sniper killings of five Dallas police officers working a protest and Sunday's killing of three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. "I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back". The accusation is one that McCabe has denied and has never been proven. "He's the President of the United States". "He is morally unfit to be president", Mr Comey said.

Comey claimed he wasn't trying to favor one candidate over the other but instead tried to do "the right thing", though he admitted his decision was influenced by the assumption Clinton would beat Trump in the election.

Comey also said he wanted special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to continue. Eventually he resigned in 1987, in part due to complaints that he was acting too much as a prime minister to a detached president.

Trump and his aides have countered Comey's media blitz by attacking his handling of the probe into Clinton's emails. He said Trump appeared shorter than he had assumed. When Stephanopoulos asked Comey whether Trump had obstructed justice in his actions, he replied: "Possibly".

As a highly regarded director of the FBI, he was not the kind to shy away from tough decisions. "I saw those actually [at] the same time, and my reaction was, 'That makes no sense at all, '" he told Stephanopoulos.
