Pretty Much Everyone is Calling James Comey a Liar

  • James Comey Saved His Biggest Surprises for His Book's Smallest Details

Then, U.S. President Donald Trump ordered Comey's dismissal as FBI Director.

Trump fired Comey a year ago amid the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers", Trump tweeted in his latest assault on Comey Monday.

Comey's first sit down with ABC News had been taped before Trump fired off those tweets about him.

In his upcoming memoir "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", Comey details his interactions with Trump before he was sacked.

Comey told USA TODAY he regards Trump as "morally unfit to be president" and believes it's possible the Russians have compromising personal information about the commander-in-chief.

Almost 7 in 10 Americans support tougher US sanctions against Russian Federation, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll that also finds roughly half the public saying President Donald Trump has done "too little" to criticize Russian Federation for alleged violations of worldwide law.

Even before the broadcast, Trump attacked Comey on Twitter.

Pacer Umesh Yadav will be the one to look out for after his match-winning performance of 3-23 against Punjab in the last game. The legspinner got one to drift away from D'Arcy Short and found the toe end in his second over, the seventh of the match .

"There's something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country", Comey said."The most important being truth.This president is not able to do that".

Democrats will probably go to their graves believing that Comey's re-opening of the email investigation 11 days out cost Clinton the election. Bill Clinton's spokesman and current ABC newsman Stephanopoulos directly asked Comey about Trump's fitness for office and impeachment. "The threats to the rule of law and the threats most of all to the truth", Comey said.

As much as he criticizes Trump, Comey doesn't want him impeached.

In Sunday's interview, Comey also levied some insults about Trump's personal stature and features.

Yet Comey is willing to crown Trump as a king for four years, to argue that an unfit president who won a minority of the popular vote in 2016 (and trailed his main opponent by nearly 3 million votes) should be allowed to remain in office until January 20, 2021. The dossier's allegations are primarily troubling because there's the possibility that Russian Federation has information or material on Trump that would enable them to blackmail the President.

Merrill zeroed in on Comey's two most controversial actions during the Clinton email probe: His July 2016 public announcement recommending no criminal charges while calling Clinton "extremely careless" and his October 2016 announcement that the bureau was revisiting the case after the discovery of potentially relevant emails on former Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop. Before the James Comey interview on ABC even aired, CNN media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter was going gaga over Comey. The move led the Justice Department to appoint Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation, which Trump has denounced as a "witch hunt".

And I-I think-look, I haven't talked about this. And it's illustration of our polarization here that you've got the Trump camp, which I guess thinks I was trying to save Hillary Clinton.

"I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice", Comey insisted.
