Trump's leadership style like a mob boss — Former FBI chief

Trump Again Rips Comey Book

Comey's 10-year term as Federal Bureau of Investigation director had been scheduled to end in 2023.

Mr Comey added that that there is "some evidence of obstruction of justice" in the president's actions, and that Mr Trump is "morally unfit" for office.

New York Times: James Comey Has A Story To Tell. Even so, pre-orders of Comey's book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", have already pushed it to the top of best seller lists.

A copy of former FBI Director James Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", is on display, April 13, 2018, in NY.

The ex-FBI chief's comments in an ABC News interview are nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president. When asked if he would still be serving in that position had Trump not fired him, Comey said he would be unhappy, but would still be leading the organization and "trying to protect it". "And that's not a policy statement", Mr Comey said. He questioned Comey's intelligence and place in history, writing, "Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

"Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama". McCabe was recently dismissed from the Trump administration.

Former FBI Director James Comey said he believes "it's possible" that Russian Federation has compromising information on President Donald Trump. He told ABC that Republicans had made "a unsafe bargain" to adopt Trump's principles instead of maintaining their conservative values.

Trump's allies, meanwhile, have launched a campaign to undermine Comey's credibility. "Even though our relationship is becoming strained, there's no way I'd be fired ... that's a insane thing to do", Comey said. He labelled Comey "disgruntled" and accused him and others of having "committed many crimes".

Mr Pashinyan earlier urged protesters in Yerevan and in other cities to blockade state institutions. The ex-president had formally stated he would "not aspire" for the prime minister position.

Trump and the Republicans have sought to stifle the impact of his book by accusing Comey of leaking classified materials and of corruptly handling the 2016 investigation into Clinton.

In a Wednesday morning tweet sent as Comey promotes his criticism-filled new book, Trump says he "was not fired because of the phony Russian Federation investigation". Comey answered, "it's possible". The retired general pleaded guilty in December and is now cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

Interested in Donald Trump? He said the public was "duty bound" to vote Trump out of office in the next election. But that, as you can imagine, created this drumbeat that the Obama Justice Department, the fix is in because the president has told them what result they should reach, ' he said. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The admission led to strong criticism from Trump.

Comey is scheduled to give interviews on the book to major television networks this week and travel to a dozen cities to promote the book in person.

Many Democratic Party activists blamed Comey for Clinton's loss. Clinton said that decision helped cost her the election.

After they were asked their opinion of Comey, members of the audience described him as "weak" and "thin-skinned".
