Trump Fires Back After Comey Calls Him 'Morally Unfit' For Office

17 April, 2018, 02:31 | Author: Wade Massey

Excerpts from Comey's book paint Trump as someone who is "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", according to ABC.

Comey also discussed the first time he met the newly elected Trump in person in January 2017 to talk about the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.

Comey's memoir "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", is to be released next week. Or is this all an effort to steer more attention to Mr. Comey and his thoughts about the president's tan lines or tie length and less on Michael Cohen and the fight over sensitive records taken from Mr. Trump's personal lawyer by the Federal Bureau of Investigation under authority of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY?

For many Women's Marchers and other passionate Trump critics, there's a lot to relate to in the public emoting of former FBI Director James Comey. The memo criticized Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation - specifically for his July 2016 press conference at which he announced the findings of the FBI investigation, and his October 28, 2016, letter to Congress stating that the investigation had been reopened due to the discovery of additional emails.

But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure...

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway criticized Comey on Monday, accusing him of peddling a "revisionist version of history" and sinking into the "gutter" with petty comments about the size of Trump's hands and the length of his tie.

"And I remember thinking, 'How could your wife think there's a 1 percent chance you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?' I'm a flawed human being, but there is literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true".

So, damned if you do, more damned if you don't, but Mr Comey also says he would do nothing differently given his time over - his self-belief seems pretty unshakable. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later said Comey would "be forever known as a disgraced partisan hack that broke his sacred trust with the president of the United States".

Comey didn't limit his criticisms to Republicans, saying that some of President Obama's behavior surrounding the Clinton email scandal baffled him as well.

"I'm not going to try and help sell some books here", Ryan said.

I don't think he's medically unfit to be president.

He said: "I knew this was a no-win situation, this case".

He also appeared to cite Comey's testimony before Congress previous year, in which he told Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican of Iowa, that he had never been an anonymous source to the press nor had he authorized someone else to do the same. Hosko also warned that Comey's animus to the president displayed in the interview would stoke accusations that a "deep state" is attempting to undermine Trump and his administration.

"I'd be a insane person to make it up", he continued.

Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., June 8, 2017.

The attacks come hours before Comey's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos was scheduled to air Sunday night. Right? So it's kind of consistent with him continuing to say it's not my fault.

"I understand. I think you've sacrificed as much as you really can of yourself for the country". But Comey writes in his book that after the 2016 election, then-President Obama told Comey that he remained confident in his "integrity" and "ability".
