Russians may have info on Trump — Comey

Russians may have info on Trump — Comey”

A Justice Department watchdog recently concluded that McCabe had misled Comey and investigators about a news media disclosure - shortly before the 2016 presidential election - related to the bureau's investigation of Democrat Hillary Clinton's email practices as secretary of state.

Mr Comey told ABC's 20/20 programme on Sunday night: "I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia".

"Prereleased excerpts of Comey's book include such politically astute observations as, "(Trump's) face appeared slightly orange with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coiffed, bright blonde hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his.

Asked whether he believed Trump ought to be impeached, Comey replied, "I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly".

"Ok everybody! Remember, the ultimate goal here is to take down the president!"

Take April Ryan's question at a daily White House briefing last week for example. But he said that in Trump's case, he could not discount the possibility that the president had been compromised. It's also about how he views the conduct of the highest officeholder in the country.

This morning's appearance on "Good Morning America" was the former FBI director's first live interview at the launch of his book tour, having already given taped interviews including his first with ABC News, which aired on Sunday.

Comey says Trump seemed fixated on an allegation made in a dossier compiled by a former British spy - and funded by Trump's political opponents - involving Russian prostitutes urinating on a bed in a Moscow hotel.

Trump fired Comey last year amid the FBI's investigation into Russian election interference.

Former FBI director James Comey has said Donald Trump is "morally unfit to be president" and treats women like "pieces of meat".

The president began assailing Comey even before the interview came out. Comey, Trump tweeted, "was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job". After Clinton's loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects. But among Democrats, 58 percent say Trump should not invite Putin, as it would provide him legitimacy as he allegedly violates international laws.

The probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians during the 2016 presidential race, now led by independent special prosecutor Robert Mueller, increasingly menaces Trump's inner circle. "People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values". "That's our foundation. And so impeachment, in a way, would short circuit that".
