James Comey says Donald Trump 'untethered to truth' in new book

James Comey says Donald Trump 'untethered to truth' in new book

President Trump fired back at James Comey on Friday, calling him "a proven LEAKER & LIAR" and a "untruthful slime ball" in the wake of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's book that likens the president to a dishonest mob boss.

Mr Comey also reveals new details about his interactions with Mr Trump and his own decision-making in handling the Hillary Clinton email investigation before the 2016 election.

Former FBI Director James Comey will break his silence Sunday night in an exclusive interview with ABC News.

Comey, who ran the Federal Bureau of Investigations for nearly four years, portrays the president in the book as a liar, dumb and rude, and he compares elements of Trump's behavior to that of a Mafia boss. In the book, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty". "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!" said one tweet.

Trump has furiously lashed out at Comey in recent days.

The president's sharp remarks came hours ahead of Mr. Comey's first major news media appearance since being fired by President Trump past year.

"And I have every confidence that Jim Comey accurately copied, collected, recounted what exactly went on during those discussions", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said.

On a grammatical note, it said, "Although Trump rendered the word as an open compound (slime ball) in his tweet, the traditional form is as a closed compound (slimeball)".

And James Comey said in a soon-to-air interview that his assumption that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency affected his behavior before the election, but in a manner that helped Trump.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump himself had a few unflattering remarks to make about Comey on Twitter.

In Sunday's tweets, Trump cited Comey's admission about his decision-making and asserted, confusingly, that he handled the investigation how he did because he wanted a job, presumably in the Clinton administration.

On Sunday, Trump used Comey's treatment of the former attorney general to bring up a 2016 meeting on a tarmac between Lynch and former president Bill Clinton. In fact, Clinton and her allies have resented the move and said it hurt her chances to become president.

In fact, Trump has struggled to find lawyers to handle Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and any potential coordination with Trump's campaign, and investigators in NY say they took Cohen's materials in the Monday raid because his communications with clients could be part of the commission of a crime.

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty".
