Trump alleges ex-FBI chief Comey committed 'many crimes'

Comey takes a swipe at Trump in plug for new book

"You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth", noted the ABC newsman.

James Comey is breaking his long silence and describing his interactions with President Donald Trump before he was abruptly fired past year.

Comey details how Trump has been obsessed since his election with the more obscene details of the dossier that alleged Trump watched prostitutes in Moscow pee on each other in 2013 in a suite that Barack and Michelle Obama had once slept in.

Many lawyers have pointed out that attorney-client privilege is not a blanket right, but such is the sense of siege in the Trump White House that there are growing apprehensions that the President may resort to unconstitutional means to remain in office should various investigations put him in trouble.

In this file photo from June 8, 2017, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey speaks during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill. He considered that "the most important thing" in a president is that he tell the truth and that Trump "is not qualified for that".

"Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers", Trump wrote on Twitter. "Again, I don't care what your views are on guns or immigration or taxes", said Comey.

Comey also discussed the first time he met the newly elected Trump in person in January 2017 to talk about the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.

He added: "I don't know whether any of this true, but this is what he said".

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.

At the same time, Rogers thinks Comey took the bait, and he was thinking with emotions over the situation with Trump.

He was referring to Clinton's use of an unencrypted emails sever to send classified information - which Comey insists he investigated fairly.

Kathua rape: Jammu Bar Association faces flak
The minor girl had disappeared from near her home in the forests in Kathua, on January 10. The government has also assured that those who are involved in the case won't be spared.

When asked if he would still send the October 28 letter, which announced the FBI was looking back into the Clinton investigation just days before the election, Comey admitted he may have been influenced by the assumption that she would win.

Trump has repeatedly suggested that the President's office is above the law by indicating that since he was elected, everything he does is kosher and he can not be held to the same standards as ordinary people.

Even liberals who will never forgive Comey for his actions during the election don't think he's dishonest.

"I think he's morally unfit to be president", Comey said, in his first televised interview since being fired in May previous year, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported.

'In an interview with- on Fox, an interview on 60 Minutes I think, both times he said that.

The firing triggered the selection of a special investigation team led by Robert Mueller.

The revelation came during Comey's interview with USA Today.

Before his sacking by President Trump, Mr Comey said the thought he had affected the outcome made him "mildly nauseous". "He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on", Comey, 57, explained to Stephanopoulos.

“I dont remember spelling it out, ” he added, “but it had to have been that shes going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, shell be illegitimate the moment shes elected, the moment this comes out.”.

"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!"
