Trump Fires Back at 'Disgruntled' Comey: 'Committed Many Crimes!'

On Sunday, Trump fired off several tweets slamming Comey before spending a few hours at his golf club in Northern Virginia.

Amid this unprecedented public battle, Trump also went to court, asking a federal judge on Sunday night to allow him to review documents that FBI agents seized from the office of his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen before criminal investigators have a chance to see the material.

When asked if the Russians had something on Trump, Comey said: "I think it's possible".

"It must have been", Comey acknowledged, "I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been". It would be something that ... is higher than all the normal fights about policy. "It would be to the everlasting shame of partisans if they were unable to see that higher level and to protect it".

Trump fired Comey in May, an action that helped lead to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He has some of the same concerns about his moral character as I have and, indeed, as many of Trump's own voters had when they pulled the lever for him. "I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's the truth". This president is not able to do that.

But the president's attacks on Comey began even before the interview came out. "He looked slightly orange up close", said Comey.

Comey also said he believed that Trump was "morally unfit" to be president and that he treated women like "pieces of meat". Trump used the investigation as a cudgel in the campaign and repeatedly said Clinton should be jailed for using a personal email system while serving as secretary of state. "Impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that". There is no indication Comey is under investigation for doing either.

"Possibly. I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice". Democrats, on the other hand, have accused Comey of politicizing the investigation.

"I worry that the norms at the center of this country - we can fight as Americans about guns or taxes or immigration, and we always have", Comey said. The inspector general, though, concluded McCabe misled Comey about the interactions he authorized.

Eurovision victor Conchita reveals HIV diagnosis
Conchita Wurst is HIV-positive and has been living with the virus for years, the Austrian drag queen revealed on Instagram .

Comey made a lot of other statements in the interview that will no doubt comfort and encourage Trump's critics: There's a "non-zero chance" that Russian Federation has incriminating information on Trump, he lies compulsively, he treats women "like meat".

Appearing separately on CNN on Monday, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said "it's part of our job to push back". The memoir will be released on Tuesday. Trump wrote early on Sunday in one of five Twitter posts aimed directly at Comey.

The President and his allies have launched a forceful counterattack.

Comey told ABC News that the title of the book came from that "bizarre conversation" he had with Trump at the White House in January 2017, shortly after his inauguration.

The poll also revealed that 49 percent of voters say a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials under then-Director Comey handled the investigations of Hillary Clinton and Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion during the 2016 presidential campaign and subsequent transition, the release said. Talking to George Stephanopoulos herself on Monday, Conway enumerated all the reasons Comey was unreliable and untrustworthy, including: "This guy swung an election".

"Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama".

The publicity tour - and the book - will be the first time the American public has heard extensively from Comey since his explosive testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June of past year. While that represented a respectable number, it was less than half the 22 million who tuned in last month to watch Stormy Daniels dish the dirt on her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

Trump has denied having asked Comey for his loyalty.
