Comey says Trump 'morally unfit' to be president in interview

Comey says Trump 'morally unfit' to be president in interview

"I don't know. These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", he said.

Where Trump's political opponent - former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - was concerned, Comey took time to explain the FBI's involvement in the scandal involving Clinton's alleged use of a private email server to send and receive confidential emails.

"Our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country", Comey told ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

Comey was also forceful in his condemnation of Trump's treatment of women and his embrace of white supremacists in the aftermath of last summer's neo-Nazi rally in Virginia.

Instead, Comey says he believes that Trump is morally unfit for what he calls treating women "like pieces of meat", lying constantly about matters big and small and insisting that people believe it, and seeing a moral equivalence of demonstrators and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. ABC's "20/20" is set to air an interview with Comey on Sunday.

Trump has denied any such collusion.

Mr Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Mr Trump obstructed justice by firing Mr Comey.

New Jersey's NJ.com, for instance, goes with this headline: "Comey: Getting wedgies as a kid in N.J. prepared me for Trump". Donna Brazile is a veteran Democratic Party official and strategist who served as acting chairman of the Democratic National Committee from July 2016 until February 2017.

Trump dismissed Comey as FBI director on May 9 of last year, on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia", Comey said of Trump. In its day, this book was as anticipated as Comey's.

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty".

Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks it's possible that President Donald Trump might be compromised by the Russians. Who doesn't like a little dish of inside Washington dirt?

Republican allies of Trump's have planned a counteroffensive and created a "Lyin' Comey" website aimed at discrediting the former FBI chief.

Trump tweeted on Sunday that he "hardly even knew this guy".

The former FBI director said that "there's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".

Comey describes Trump as having been obsessed with the portion dealing with prostitutes in the infamous dossier compiled by British former intelligence officer Christopher Steele, raising it at least four times with the FBI director.

"He had impressively coiffed hair, his tie was too long as it always is, he looked slightly orange up close with small white half-moons under his eyes, which I assume are from tanning goggles", he said.

A week after the Trump Tower meeting, on Jan. 11, Comey writes that Trump called him and said he was concerned about the dossier being made public and was fixated on the prostitutes allegation. Just another of his many lies.

After he finished talking to the employees and saying goodbye, Comey said he went into a room to find out whether he had been ousted, "because I did not expect to be fired".

"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said. And that me caught me so much by surprise I actually let out an audible laugh and- 'cause it was just one of those- I was startled by it'.
