In Tweets, Trump Fixates On James Comey, Mentions Syria Strikes And Cohen

Americans more likely to believe Comey than Trump poll

President Donald Trump attacked James Comey as a "weak and untruthful slime ball" on Friday after the fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation director castigated him as an unethical liar and likened him to a mob moss in a searing new memoir. The interview will air Sunday night on ABC.

"Wasn't the decision to reveal influenced by your assumption that Hillary Clinton was going to win, and your concern that, she wins, this comes out several weeks later and then that's taken by her opponents as a sign that she's an illegitimate president?", Stephanopoulos asks.

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were untrue, Comey told ABC. In the book, Comey compares Trump to a mob boss who demands loyalty from all those around him, even if it means twisting the truth. A few of his many lies.

Following several tantrums and attacks coinciding with the release of book excerpts, the president began his Sunday obsessively attacking Comey, the memoir, Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch.

"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.

Trump has vehemently denied that the incident occurred or that such a tape exists, and according to Comey, Trump told him in January 2017 that he may want him to investigate it to prove that the incident didn't occur. Clinton herself has pointed to Comey's actions in explaining her presidential election loss.

The memos Trump appears to reference are ones that Comey wrote memorializing his meetings and phone calls with the president - which have since become public.

Trump began Friday morning with a twitter airstrike hitting Comey.

Trump recently accused Comey of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to Congress under oath.

During the summer of the 2016 campaign, Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on a tarmac while the email investigation was still underway.

Comey has indeed faced criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike - and the release of his book gives him a high-profile platform to defend himself.

Comey said he was "operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I'm sure that it was a factor". His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst "botch jobs" of history.

Instead of being remembered as a dedicated servant in the pursuit of justice like so many of his other colleagues at the FBI, Comey will be forever known as a disgraced partisan hack that broke his sacred trust with the president of the United States, the dedicated agents of the FBI and the American people he vowed to faithfully serve.
