Comey's book target Trump's White House

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty", tweeted Trump, who purportedly asked Comey for a loyalty pledge. According to Comey's account in a new memoir, Trump "strongly denied the allegations, asking - rhetorically, I assumed - whether he seemed like a guy who needed the service of prostitutes".

"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR", Trump wrote. In May, shortly after Comey's dismissal, he rejected Trump's description of Comey as a "nut job" and said "I like Comey" - though he also defended Trump's decision to fire him.

Comey's book will be heavily scrutinized by the president's legal team looking for any inconsistencies between it and his public testimony, under oath, before Congress. He is a weak and.

The conversation, Comey said, was "really weird", resulting in what the then-FBI director called an "almost out-of-body experience".

"His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst "botch jobs" of history", the president said.

Trump renewed his attacks on Comey on Sunday morning, calling him a "Slimeball" and accusing him of "many lies".

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director is doing a series of media interviews before the release next Tuesday of his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", which paints a deeply unflattering picture of the Republican president, likening him to a mob boss who stresses personal loyalty over the law. Trump tweets: "It was my great honor to fire him".

"The Trial of James Comey" airs Sunday at 9:00pm ET on Fox News Channel, with a re-airing at midnight ET. During the segment, Comey said he didnt know whether to believe Trumps denial that he had spent time with prostitutes in Moscow before he became president.

No new attacks planned against Syria for now, says Britain
The small Northern Irish political party that props up her government said May was justified in taking such action. Dozens of civilians were killed in the chemical weapons attack in Douma.


Mueller is looking into whether Trump has sought to obstruct the Russian Federation probe, and Comey could be a key witness on that front.

According to raw intelligence gathered by former British MI6 agent Michael Steele, in 2013, Trump had a group of prostitutes urinate on a bed at a Moscow hotel room where President Obama and his wife once stayed. Clintons campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research.

Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Clinton's email practices.

"Did - but did he have a right to know that?" the host pressed. "It's possible, but I don't know". "I - it wasn't necessary for my goal, which was to alert him that we had this information". "He said, 'If there's even a one percent chance my wife thinks that's true, that's awful, '" Comey recalled. "I'm a flawed human being there's but literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true".

In fact, lawmakers from both parties criticized Comey's dismissal.

"I suspect his apparent inability to do so is rooted in deep insecurity, his inability to be vulnerable or to risk himself by appreciating the humor of others, which, on reflection, is really very sad in a leader, and a little scary in a president".

While many lawmakers - Republicans and Democrats - have been disappointed with Comey's performance in the past, the timing and manner of Trump firing Comey sounded many alarm bells, including over whether Trump had removed the director in order to stall or possibly hamper an investigation into Russian Federation meddling that was shifting its focus toward the White House.
