Former FBI Director James Comey Says Trump 'Threatens' Core American Values

17 Abril 2018

The Nielsen company says Comey's interview, the first on the media tour to promote his book "A Higher Loyalty", was seen by 9.8 million viewers on Sunday night. A 66 percent majority of those who strongly approve of Trump back such measures, as do 73 percent of those who strongly disapprove of him. "This president is not able to do that", Mr Comey said.

He also describes the president as shorter than he expected, his tie was "too long", and he had "bright white half-moons under his eyes" that Comey says he believes came from tanning goggles.

"These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", Comey told ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. The move led the Justice Department to appoint Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation, which Trump has denounced as a "witch hunt".

Comey repeatedly compares Trump's behaviour to a New York mafia don. He calls him "untethered to truth", "unethical" and a "forest fire" burning through the foundation of American democracy, norms and values. This is not OK.

Comey commented Tuesday while promoting his new book on ABC's "Good Morning America".

You should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen' Clinton allies seethe with rage at Comey Press: The lawmaker vs. the lawbreaker MORE said in a new interview that while most Americans shrugged off a tweet in which President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump asking Arab nations to replace US military in Syria after defeat of ISIS: report Columbia presses on with scholarship program for displaced Syrians despite Trump travel ban Dershowitz confronts Hannity: 'You should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen' MORE suggested the former FBI director suggesting he faces jail time, the president threatening a private citizen is "not normal".

Trump fired Comey last year amid the FBI's investigation into Russian election interference. But the book and his interview reveal some telling details. The Post reported that administration officials said Haley made an error and said it was unlikely that Trump would approve any additional sanctions without another triggering event by Russia. There's no way I would let people pee on each other around me. "No way", Comey quotes the president as saying.

That argument was startling given that Comey's handling of the email investigation, including his disclosure shortly before the election that the FBI had reopened its probe, enraged Democrats.

Prostitutes aside, Comey says the president and his team were much less concerned about the national security threat of Russian election meddling. Since then we have ceased to debate positions, policies and party politics. Instead, they launched into a strategy session about how to "spin what we'd just told them" for the public, he writes.
