The ex-FBI chief's comments in an ABC News interview are nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president.
In an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday night, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief says he could not discount the possibility that Russian Federation might have something on the president.

"Usually you don't have anybody in the FBI talking about ongoing investigations", Anderson said, adding that "if Jim says something in one interview, then says something in his book thats different, then gives a different version of it in another interview, and they use him as a witness which I'm sure they will, then that could become a problem" for the Russian Federation investigation.
