Trump is 'morally unfit to be president — Comey

Instead, Mr. Comey called Mr. Trump "morally unfit". "I think he's morally unfit to be president", he said.

Comey answered "possibly" when asked in an ABC News interview whether the president was attempting to obstruct justice when he asked Comey to end an FBI investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"But not in the way ..." Trump posted in one of a flurry of scathing tweets yesterday.

Comey is promoting a new book - and incurring Trump's wrath as he does. "I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies", Trump said on Twitter.

Stephanopoulos in an interview that aired Sunday night, asks Comey.

"It gets chaotic", Comey said, likening the scene to one written in "a movie script".

Mr Comey's televised remarks, coupled with the release of his forthcoming book, offer his version of events surrounding his firing and the investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton's email practices.

"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said.

ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos had the scoop - the very first interview with Comey. "And he paused and then he said, 'Honest loyalty, ' as if he was proposing some compromise or a deal". "But it's just not fair to say we were doing it for some illegitimate reason. It's the family, the family, the family, the family".

"I was trying to be honest and clear with the American people". My wife and girls marched in the women's march the day after President Trump's inauguration. Democrats have faulted Comey for his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state.

"If I ever start considering whose political fortunes will be affected by a decision, we're done", he said.

He also spoke about special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and said Sunday that he "never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty". Not for immigration policy.

"The challenge of this president is that he will stain everyone around him", Comey said.

It's a stunning indictment from a man who would know. In January this year, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley revealed that at least one of Comey's memos contained classified information.

Comey convinced the man to lock him and his brother in a downstairs bathroom, lying that it had been sealed up when, actually, they could escape through the window. "He was crazy, a real nut job", he told them, according to the White House notes of the meeting. I'm leading the investigation of Russian influence-in particular, whether anyone in the Trump orbit had coordinated and conspired with the Russians.

Trump clapped back at Comey several times over the weekend including calling him a "slimeball". "I was floating above myself looking down saying 'you're sitting here briefing the incoming president of the United States about prostitutes in Moscow'".

"Well, certainly the source was credible", he said when asked about the pee tape dossier.

"And there once was a day when people were afraid of goin' to hell if they took an oath in the name of God and violated it. We've drifted away from that day". Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary. "No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!" Cohen wrote a $130,000 check to Daniels in October 2016 to keep her from going to the press during the final stages of the presidential election campaign.

He replied: "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been".

"I've never seen him laugh".

"I panicked at first, and started to pray".

Comey has a tell-all book, A Higher Loyalty, due out on Tuesday. "I don't see any value in that".
