Trump's allies have prepared an extensive campaign to fight back against Comey's publicity tour, trying to undermine his credibility by reviving the blistering Democratic criticism of him before he was sacked almost a year ago. "No one is above that rule of law system".

Trump past year abruptly removed Comey who was overseeing a criminal probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election that was won by him. His firing led to the Justice Department appointing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to take over the Russian Federation investigation. It is the subject of an investigation into whether he sought to obstruct justice in the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"I've - two or three briefings is about what I had with James Comey".

"The writing of the book in general and then some of the things that he's talking about are just frankly beneath the dignity of some really important offices he once held", he said on Fox News. Reuters has obtained a copy.

Comey, fired by Trump in May 2017, says the president has no sense of what is right and wrong. Comey likens the president to a mob boss and calls him "untethered" and "unethical".

According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, Comey is seen as more believable than Trump, by a margin of 48%-32%.

The dossier included intelligence suggesting the Kremlin was engaged in an effort to assist Trump's campaign for president.

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele about Trump's ties to Russian Federation and included an allegation that involved prostitutes.

Trump would probably do best, in fact, to keep quiet and let Comey destroy on his own the idea, if anyone still holds it, that he's a righteous public servant who cares only about truth, justice, and the American way.

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty". She also took issue with some of Comey's personal commentary in the book, saying it was "no way to comport oneself after you're trying to prove that you have this quote, 'higher loyalty"'.

Like bullying. This is a media-about-media-about-media moment, so part of today's entertainment is watching how various news organizations are serving up reports of the Comey memoir in ways they think will resonate with their readers.

Comey's comments come in an interview excerpt, below, released by ABC News Saturday. Comey asks his readers. The document claimed that Trump had watched the prostitutes urinate on themselves in the same Moscow suite that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama had stayed in "as a way of soiling the bed", Comey writes. I don't know. I honestly don't know. The president appears to be referring to passages in A Higher Loyalty in which Comey wrote that he had a "tortured half-in, half-out approach" to the investigation into Clinton's emails.

More recently, Trump has complained that the Federal Bureau of Investigation treated Clinton more leniently than it has treated his associates during the probe into Russian interference in the presidential election.
