In it, Mr Comey wrote that Mr Trump, in a private meeting, pressed the then-FBI director for his loyalty.

James Comey has a lot to say about Donald Trump - and none of it is good.

Comey is promoting a new book - and incurring Trump's wrath as he does.

POTUS also tweet-ranted, "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".

Dr. Miller: I think Comey's reasoning is pretty clear: he wants to fix his tarnished reputation... tarnished among both the Democrats and the Republicans.

Despite support for penalizing Russian Federation, 52 percent of adults say Trump should invite Vladimir Putin to the White House in an effort to improve U.S. -Russia relations, while 42 percent say Trump should not do so, because it would grant Putin legitimacy.

Mr Trump fired off a series of furious tweets early ahead of an interview Mr Comey conducted with USA television network the ABC that was set to air in full on Sunday evening local time. "He is morally unfit to be president".

"We wake up in the morning and see the president of the United States is accusing people of crimes without evidence and pronouncing them guilty and saying they should be in jail", he said.

In fact, more tangential stories like Comey's revelation that the White House chief of staff John Kelly called the president's firing of Comey "dishonorable" could have "the potential to actually affect some staffing decisions and policies", said Markay.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017. "I would explain to these bright young lawyers that, like all great gifts, this one comes with a responsibility, a solemn obligation to guard and protect that reservoir and pass it on to those who follow as full as you received it, and maybe even fuller".

Russian Federation prepares major response to USA sanctions
Among them is a proposal to ban or restrict titanium exports that are crucial for U.S. aircraft maker Boeing. The decision to strike, after days of deliberations, marked Trump's second order to attack Syria.

It was a hard task for the producers and editors - but they conveyed Comey's complex decision-making as Federal Bureau of Investigation director and his complicated feelings about President Donald Trump, who fired him last May.

During the tax cut roundtable in Hialeah, Fla., Trump praised the missile attack, claiming that "every single one hit its target". "I just thought it was a weird enough experience for me to be talking to the incoming president of the United States about prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow".

There's the damaging conclusions that a professional measurer-of-men has come to; that the President is "untethered to the truth" and unfit to serve. As Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election continues, pundits predict that any legal action against Trump would be an obstruction of justice charge corroborated by Comey's testimony about the Flynn investigation. "I suspect his apparent inability to do so is roouted in deep insecurity, his inability to be vulnerable or to risk himself by appreciating the humor of others, which, on reflection, is really very sad in a leader, and a little scary in a president".

The feud between former FBI Director James Comey and President Donald Trump reached new heights over the weekend.

"Obviously, most likely is that he's not", Comey said.

"What is the Justice Department doing to allow [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller to mess around, given that Comey was behind the creation of Mueller's [Russia] investigation to begin with?" he asked.

To Comey, Trump is everything a president shouldn't be.

"But I'm an optimistic person".
