Former FBI director James Comey makes shocking claims about Trump

Anchor George Stephanopoulos sits down with former FBI director James Comey for an exclusive interview that will air during a primetime 20/20 special on Sunday

He said he thinks it's possible the Russians have something that could compromise Trump. "He is morally unfit to be president".

Comey's comments in an ABC News interview that aired Sunday were nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president, who fired him previous year and attacked him anew Sunday with a Twitter outburst that suggested the ex-FBI head should be put in jail. "'It always struck me and still strikes me as unlikely, and I woulda" been able to say with high confidence about any other president I dealt with, but I can't. "Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the bad job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Comey said he actively tried to blend in to the curtains in the White House's Blue Room in a futile attempt to not be singled out for a photo with the new president.

'People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values'. "Although, if he didn't know he was doing something improper, why did he kick out the attorney general and the vice president of the United States and the leaders of the intelligence community?"

"So they put the headphones on me and I sat on a jump seat between the two pilots and watched them land along the Potomac", Comey said. After Clinton's loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.

In his press tour, Comey is sure to be asked to weigh in on Trump and the various twists and turns in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election as well as any potential links between Russia and Trump campaign associates. 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'".

The thought of having dinner alone with Trump at the White House made Comey "deeply uncomfortable", he wrote, because he feared that the president wanted to compromise the FBI's integrity and independence and was waging "an effort to establish a patronage relationship" with him.

Comey, who ran the Federal Bureau of Investigation 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.

Comey says Steele's track record was why he felt it "was important that we try to understand [the dossier], and see what could we verify, what could we rule in or rule out".

"I'm about to meet a person who doesn't know me, who's just been elected president of the United States".

We didn't hand title to Manchester City - Mourinho
City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago. I believe in myself. "The mental level, day by day".

"If I ever start considering whose political fortunes will be affected by a decision, we're done", Mr. Comey said of the F.B.I.

He added: "But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure".

In the forthcoming book, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty". "I hope you can let this go".

"I've never seen him laugh".

Hours before the interview aired, Trump launched into a preemptive tirade on Twitter berating Trump.

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

"He asked for my loyalty personally as the F.B.I. director".

"More and more lies", Comey said.

'I hardly even knew this guy. "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!"
