Obsessed: Trump Attacks 'Slippery' Comey, 'Badly Reviewed' Bestseller

"M$3 y concern about making her an illegitimate president by concealing the restarted investigation bore greater weight than it would have if the election appeared closer or if Donald Trump were ahead in the polls", he wrote.Clinton herself has said she thinks Comey's handling of the email probe ultimately caused her loss. Officials there describe the president as enraged over a recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of his personal lawyer's home and office, raising the prospect that he could fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, or try to shut down the probe on his own.

One, he attacks Comey personally, again calling him a "slime ball".

Comey, fired by Trump in May 2017, says the president has no sense of what is right and wrong. Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was sacked last month, days before his retirement, following an internal review that accused him of being untruthful about his role in the leaking of damaging information on the Clinton email investigation.

The interviews are Comey's first public comments since he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June, when he accused Trump of firing him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

In an interview broadcast Friday on ABC's Good Morning America, Comey said Trump also seemed obsessed with an unverified claim that during a trip to Moscow he watched two prostitutes engage in an unusual sexual act.

In an interview broadcast on Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America", Comey discussed his initial encounters a year ago with the new president. The dossier alleged that Kremlin had a tape of the dirty deed.

Born in London , Sorrell studied economics at the University of Cambridge and then gained a masters from Harvard University. He previously worked at Saatchi & Saatchi, and was knighted in the Queen's New Year honours list in 2000.

Trump is reacting to Comey's new book, which compares the president to an unethical mob boss who demands loyalty and twists facts to serve his goal. Trump said on Twitter.

"It bothered him if there was "even a one percent chance" his wife, Melania, thought it was true", Comey writes.

But it was the Cheney-Addington showdown that established Comey's independence in the minds of many in Washington, D.C. It also appears to have impressed the man who would become the next president, Barack Obama. He said he did not know whether the events described in the dossier were true. "Again, very unusual", Comey wrote. "Really weird. It was nearly an out of body experience for me". That distracted me slightly because I immediately began wondering why his wife would think there was any chance, even a small one, that he had been with prostitutes urinating on each other in Moscow'.

Before Trump and Comey met alone, USA intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and his advisers on Russia's election meddling.

In the ABC segment that aired Friday, Stephanopoulos also asked Comey if he had disclosed to Trump at the time the source of funding of the dossier, compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer. Moscow has repeatedly denied US intelligence agencies' findings that it interfered in the campaign to try to tilt the November 2016 vote in Trump's favor.
