Hosko also warned that Comey's animus to the president displayed in the interview would stoke accusations that a "deep state" is attempting to undermine Trump and his administration. "You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth", noted the ABC newsman.

He was sacked by Trump in May 2017.

A copy of former FBI Director James Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", is on display, April 13, 2018, in NY.

"I hope folks read the whole thing and find it useful", referring to Trump as the counterpoint to former USA president George W Bush and Barack Obama. Two days later, Trump said that he had been planning on forcing Comey out over his poor handling of the investigation regarding Clinton's private server and email scandal, "regardless" of any recommendation. "There's something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country".

In an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday night, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief says he could not discount the possibility that Russian Federation might have something on the president.

Comey's comments in an ABC News interview broadcast Sunday were nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president. "It's possible, but I don't know".

Over the past hour, the National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for Mecklenburg and the surrounding counties. In Amherst County, it crossed Virginia 130 into Elon and its wind speed strengthened to an estimated 130 miles per hour .

Trump accused Comey of lying to Congress and exonerating Hillary Clinton in a 2016 investigation because of her strong poll numbers in the presidential race.

Comey largely avoids talking about the Mueller investigation in detail.

That damning account has infuriated the president at a moment of intensifying legal pressure on other fronts. "He looked slightly orange up close", said Comey. You know you're in odd waters when the Republican National Committee dedicates a section of its web site to "Lyin Comey", a piling on of anti-Comey criticism, before the book is even officially released.

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

FBI Director James Comey listens during testimony on Capitol Hill in Washington, March 20, 2017, before the House Intelligence Committee hearing on allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election. He copped a plea and is now cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has bigger fish to fry.

The interview escalated the ongoing battle between Comey and the president, who just hours had tweeted that his former FBI director was "slimeball" and "the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

"I wish that Mr. Comey reflected a little bit more deeply and maybe called what he did a mistake because I think it was", Mook told CNN last week in response to the publication of Comey's book A Higher Loyalty.

While many of Trump's critics believe that the proper remedy for his perceived transgressions is impeachment, Comey insisted that would just "let the American people off the hook".

Though the two warring camps continually rehash an election that ended two years ago, trapping the American people in a perpetual nightmare between the two most disliked presidential candidates in US history, they found common ground in questioning Comey's handling of federal investigations.

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.

'First of all, we had the problem that President Obama had twice publicly basically said, 'There's no there, there, ' Comey said, making his own characterization of Obama's comments.
