James Comey: In his own words

Donald Trump fired James Comey in May 2017 citing the FBI's behavior in investigating Democrat Hillary Clinton and its probe into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia

What struck him most, Comey told ABC, was that the conversation moved straight into a public relations mode, what they could say and how they would position Trump.

Many Democrats blame Comey for announcing less than two weeks before the election that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was examining a new trove of Clinton emails for possible classified material. He also recalls Trump requesting that the FBI investigate salacious allegations about his actions with Russian prostitutes.

In the teaser video for the throw-down between the two, the buzz words all come out of Stephanopoulos's mouth, including mob boss, the untold knowledge that can damage Trump, obstruction of justice, and impeachment.

The book also includes some personal jabs at Trump, including references to the size of his hands and calling his face "slightly orange".

"It was my great honor to fire James Comey", Trump tweeted.

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele about Trump's ties to Russian Federation and included an allegation that involved prostitutes urinating on one another in a hotel room while Trump watched.

Comey also claimed that the US President asked him to investigate the allegations from the "dossier". Readers of A Higher Loyalty will be left with the deeply ironic impression that James Comey is actually very Trump-like: his higher loyalty is reserved mainly for himself.

Just a week after Comey's firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller, himself a former FBI director, to oversee an investigation of the president about possible connections to Russian Federation and any related issues such as obstruction of justice.

"We find Mr. Comey has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntlement ex-employee", Conway told reporters outside the White House. The Republican National Committee is poised to lead the pushback effort against Comey by launching a website and supplying surrogates with talking points that question his credibility. "I'm really looking forward to working with you, ' he said".

Comey says he then tried to explain the thinking behind his decision to reopen the Clinton probe after her emails were found on a computer shared by her top aide, Huma Abedin, and Abedin's husband, the disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner.

In A Higher Loyalty, Comey admits that his actions in 2016 were politically motivated. I don't really know the guy. The controversy involved Clinton's use of a private email server for official correspondence when she was secretary of state under then-President Barack Obama, including for messages that were later determined to contain classified information.

He also reveals new details about how the government had unverified classified information that he believes could have been used to cast doubt on Attorney General Loretta Lynch's independence in the Clinton probe. "I really disagreed with him. He lied to Congress under OATH".

In fact, lawmakers from both parties criticized Comey's dismissal. Kelly has been increasingly marginalized in the White House and the president has mused to confidants about firing him.

According to Comey, Trump brought up the water sport allegation at least four times, starting with their first meeting, in January 2017.

"It was all, 'What can we say about what they did and how it effects the election that we just had, '" Comey said.
