Trump Threatens Comey With Jail Time in Unhinged Tirade

Trump Threatens Comey With Jail Time in Unhinged Tirade

Former FBI Director James Comey said his assumption that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election was a factor in opening an inquiry into her emails, according to part of an ABC interview broadcast on Saturday.

In Comey's book, he describes in great detail the ways in which Trump has allegedly violated the independence of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and attempted to coerce loyalty out of Comey, according to The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the book, titled "A Higher Royalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership" prior to its release.

Trump fired off a series of tweets early ahead of an interview Comey did with U.S. television network the ABC that was set to air in full on Sunday evening.

Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Clinton's email practices. Democrats, on the other hand, have accused Comey of politicizing the investigation, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.

"I'd have a conniption if I knew one of my witnesses was going to be writing a book", said Nick Akerman, a former assistant US attorney and Watergate prosecutor.

They have dropped a league-high 26 points from winning positions this season. "Everyone is ideal , apart from Romero". The England midfielder's effort lacked venom, though, and was parried to safety by David de Gea .

Trump fired Comey last May and has publicly criticized him since then, but not to this extent.

Comey's recent behavior has been equally puerile, with the former head of one of the most powerful agencies on Earth lending credence to a patently absurd conspiracy theory involving Trump and prostitutes.

But Comey wrote in his book he found her position "very unusual", as she did not fully recuse herself. "Comey: Discussing "Pee Tape" Dossier with Trump Was 'Out of Body Experience", read a Huffington Post headline. Trump seized on the excerpt on another tweet on Sunday. While Comey does not outline the details of the information - and says he didn't see indications of Lynch inappropriately influencing the investigation - he says it anxious him that the material could be used to attack the integrity of the probe and the FBI's independence. "Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary. No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!"

Mr. Trump denied seeking a personal commitment of loyalty from Mr. Comey, whom he fired over what he said were concerns he was doing a poor job. Mr. Trump's early-morning missives slammed the ex-director as a "slimeball", while simultaneously casting Comey as someone he "hardly knew".

"I said to him, 'Sir that's up to you but you want to be careful about that because it might create a narrative that we're investigating you personally and, second, it's very hard to prove something didn't happen", Comey said. "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", goes where no other has: an open assault on the authority of the leader of the world's most powerful nation.
