Trump says Comey and McCabe 'committed many crimes'

And last week federal agents in NY raided the office and hotel room of Trump's longtime personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, possibly in connection with secret hush payments he made to women claiming they had affairs with Trump.

Mr. Comey, whom President Trump fired, of course, came across in his first major interview, with George Stephanopoulos first broadcast Sunday on ABC, as the class do-gooder who sits in the front row warning the teacher that she's dismissing early.

Trump may be vulnerable to Russian blackmail. He also acknowledged he had no proof that Russian Federation has dirt on Trump: "I think it's possible".

But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure... Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

"I think it's possible, I don't know", Comey said. Everybody's got opinions. I may agree with Comey that Trump is morally unfit to be president, but that doesn't mean it's particularly important that he thinks so. "And the question is, how much stain is too much stain". And so I don't know the reason.

Comey also said that serving in Trump's administration poses a serious ethical dilemma.

Regardless, he said, once it learned of the dossier, the Federal Bureau of Investigation considered Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled it, to be a credible source, calling him "someone with a track record, someone who was a credible and respected member of an allied intelligence service during his career". "He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on", Comey said. In the book, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty". So far, 19 people - including Flynn and Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort -have been charged in the investigation. I mean, I only worked with him very briefly before I was sacked.

"I'd be a insane person to make it up", he continued.

One dead in Crozet plane crash
The plane, which was located in a field, is a small, private aircraft and one body has been recovered from the wreckage. FAA investigators are on their way to the crash site and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.

"I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning", he declared under oath.

Among the more salacious topics during the interview focused on the infamous Steele dossier that was compiled by a former British spy and alleged that footage exists of Trump watching prostitutes urinating in a Moscow hotel suite.

"We had the problem that President Obama had twice publicly basically said, "There's no there, there" in an interview with- on Fox, an interview on 60 Minutes I think, both times he said that", Comey said.

"When the room was clear, I did what I had promised the president and passed along his concerns about leaks and his expectation that we would be aggressive in pursuing them". You know you're in unusual 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.

"The president is not a king but a citizen, deserving of the presumption of innocence and other protections, yet also vulnerable to lawful scrutiny", the editorial said. "I don't think so". "The only thing worse than Comey's history of misconduct is his willingness to say anything to sell books".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders also took on Comey on Sunday during an appearance on ABC's This Week. "I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's the truth".

The President and his allies have launched a forceful counterattack.
