Trump again calls Comey a 'slimeball' ahead of book release

WASHINGTON-President Donald Trump continued his attacks on James Comey on Sunday morning, accusing the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation of telling lies in a "badly reviewed" book.

And Moss added to his comments: "Comey is still infinitely more credible than the president". 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.

Trump said in one of several tweets Sunday about Comey and his upcoming book, "A Higher Loyalty". In addition, Comey says he and the president sparred over Trump's complimentary words regarding Vladimir Putin and his suggestion in an interview that the USA was also guilty of illegal killings. Trump also sought to rebut Comey's claim that he had demanded personal loyalty, insisting in a tweet that "I hardly even knew this guy". "I hope you can let this go".

For example, Trump has said before that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe "got $700,000 from H [illary Clinton]" for his wife Dr. Jill McCabe's campaign for the Virginia state senate.

The renewed attacks by Trump came as ABC News was set to air an interview with Comey at 10 p.m. EDT on Sunday in which he discusses his book, "A Higher Loyalty".

The thought of having dinner alone with Trump at the White House made Comey "deeply uncomfortable", he writes in the book, because he feared that the president wanted to compromise the FBI's integrity and independence and was waging "an effort to establish a patronage relationship" with him.

Trump also mentioned former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who oversaw the Clinton investigation, in a follow up tweet.

"(Obama) looked directly at me", Comey recalled, according to The Washington Post.

As Comey wrote, "What is happening now is not normal". During the campaign, Comey never informed the public that he was investigating Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC. Comey described being struck that the president and his staff never expressed any interest in Russian election-meddling and how to prevent it again.

He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted.

The interview, conducted by George Stephanopoulos, took place in Comey's home in Virginia last Monday, according to Axios. In a promo for the interview, Stephanopoulos asks Comey: "How unusual is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss?".
