Trump attacks 'slime ball' ex-FBI director

Trump attacks 'slime ball' ex-FBI director

"Comey throws AG Lynch "under the bus!"

"He brought up what he called the "golden showers thing" ... adding that it bothered him if there was "even a one percent chance" his wife, Melania, thought it was true", Comey writes in A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, according to the New York Post. Based on early excerpts, we've compiled some of the book's most pivotal takeaways.

Among the many revelations is that Trump fixated on unconfirmed allegations in a widely circulated intelligence dossier that Russians had filmed him interacting with prostitutes in Moscow in 2013. I don't know him very well. "President Obama was not an outwardly emotional man in these kinds of meetings, but still I spoke in unusually emotional terms to him". "He mentioned a number of women, and seemed to have memorized their allegations".

Trump also insisted that Comey committed numerous crimes and is deserving of jail.

Republican allies of Trump's have planned a counteroffensive and created a "Lyin' Comey" website aimed at discrediting the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.

Comey is "weak", and was a "terrible director", Trump said. "There's no way I would let people pee on each other around me".

Russia Spied on Skripal and Daughter for at Least Five Years: UK
Cyber specialists from the GRU, Russia's foreign intelligence agency, hacked Miss Skripal's emails as far back as 2013, he said. Russian Federation later ridiculed the number of theories over the poisoning in western media.

The former FBI director, who was abruptly fired by Trump a year ago, announced in July 2016 that he would not recommend charges in the investigation of Clinton's email practices. Comey expressed concern about creating a narrative that the president was being investigated personally and that it was hard to prove something never happened.

Asked how freakish that meeting with Trump was, Comey said: "Very weird". Mueller, however, has re-emerged at the center of the Trump legal drama - the special counsel named by the Justice Department to continue the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election begun under Comey. "Two or three briefings is about what I had with James Comey", Ryan, who announced his retirement last week, told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press".

"I thwarted the hug, but I got something worse in exchange. It's possible, but I don't know", Comey told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "I'm not trying to be evasive". Comey writes that the president gave him flashbacks to his days prosecuting the Cosa Nostra. He criticizes Lynch for suggesting that he refer to the probe as a "matter" and not an "investigation", writing that he told her, "The F.B.I. didn't do matters".

- Comey writes that during the meeting he kept thinking of the NY mafia from his experience as a federal prosecutor in Manhattan, and how the Trump team's behaviour was aimed at making the intelligence community part of his group - his Cosa Nostra.

On Friday morning, Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt suggested there were other more pressing issues in the world, asking that if the US and its allies chose to bomb Syria, "Don't you think that story would be a bigger story than Comey's book?" He compares Trump's White House to "The silent circle of assent", with "The boss in complete control". But they are saying something different, something like this: "Even though we cited Comey's criticism of Clinton at the time, we're now saying he was wrong to offer it, which proves his criticism of Trump is not to be believed".
