He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. "He lied to Congress under OATH", Trump wrote in a statement that stretched across two Twitter posts. He is a weak and.

- Comey writes that Trump said he was thinking about asking the FBI to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie.

Trump denied that he asked him the question in an interview with Fox News.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Former FBI chief James Comey said his belief that Hillary Clinton would be elected president in 2016 "was a factor" in his handling of the probe into her misuse of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation ultimately decided not to refer Clinton's case for prosecution, Democrats said Comey's announcement damaged her with voters right before the election, and he faced complaints that his moves were politically motivated.

In an exclusive interview to ABC News, Comey revealed that he met with the US President to discuss the unverified claims, following which the latter asked him to investigate the matter and "prove that it didn't happen".

Trump fired off a series of tweets ahead of Comey's first interview on the book, which offers his version of the events surrounding his firing as FBI director by Trump and the investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton's email practices.

New Jersey's NJ.com, for instance, goes with this headline: "Comey: Getting wedgies as a kid in N.J. prepared me for Trump".

Champions League qualification is possible this season after another stellar campaign. The Bayern coach said it is not only a challenge for Bayern but Real as well.

But since then, the question of Comey's credibility has become a more pressing matter in Washington as he has accused Trump of acting to obstruct the federal investigation into his campaign and business ties to Russian Federation. The Democratic argument is that Comey's conduct toward Clinton was wrong - their argument is still the same on this front - and that Comey's current testimony about Trump's conduct has legitimate revelatory value. "I think he should be left to do his job, and I don't think they're really contemplating this". I paused, again. "You will always get honesty from me", I said. “It wasnt necessary for my goal, which is to alert him we have this information.”.

The dossier included intelligence suggesting the Kremlin was engaged in an effort to assist Trump's campaign for president. Trump said he would think about it and asked Comey to consider it too. He said he didn't want to work for dishonourable people who would treat someone like me in such a manner.

Some of the early news coverage of Comeys memoir has made a mockery of Trump, including the cover of Fridays Daily News in NY.

At that dinner, he told Comey, "I need loyalty".

Trump went on to call "Slippery James Comey" the "WORST FBI Director in history, by far" and insist that the notes Comey took documenting his conversations with Trump are "FAKE".

But, with Sane's goal scrubbed, a single goal was a meager return for City's relentless and energetic attacks in the first half. You have to analyse game by game". "We have to recover mentally for the six games remaining", he said of the Premier League .

Trump's allies are trying to avoid a repeat of the fallout from Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury", the hard-edged insider account of life in Trump's White House that caught many in the West Wing by surprise and dominated headlines for weeks.
