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

Comey has said that some of the memos he wrote after meeting with Trump included classified material but that the one he passed to a friend did not. His virulent attack reflected months of simmering anger against a career law enforcement bureaucrat who has emerged as one of his fiercest opponents.

In a subsequent exchange, Ryan reiterated his view that special counsel Robert Mueller III ought to be left to complete his investigation into the Trump orbit.

The book also speculates about Mr. Trump's refusal to acknowledge Russia's attempt to influence the election.

"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe".

Trump recently accused Comey of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to Congress under oath.

Trump tweeted "James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR".

President Donald Trump and his top aides wasted no time in launching pointed attacks on former FBI Director James Comey on Friday over his bombshell tell-all book - and the offensive is only expected to intensify in the coming days.

President Donald Trump's allies are preparing an extensive campaign to fight back against James Comey's publicity tour, trying to undermine the credibility of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director by reviving the blistering Democratic criticism of him before he was sacked almost a year ago.

Comey also must believe that his book is a personal crusade to save the country from what he says Trump is doing that "threatens much of what is good in this nation". The document claimed that Trump had watched the prostitutes urinate on themselves in the same Moscow suite that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama had stayed in "as a way of soiling the bed", Comey writes. "I started to tell him about the allegation was, that he had been involved with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow in 2013 during a visit for the Miss Universe pageant and that the Russians had filmed the episode". Ryan, asked whether Comey was a man of integrity, said, "As far as I know" but added that he did not know him well.

Trump was anxious there was a chance his wife, Melania Trump, would believe the allegations. The president appears to be referring to passages in A Higher Loyalty in which Comey wrote that he had a "tortured half-in, half-out approach" to the investigation into Clinton's emails.

There are also details about Trump's attitude toward Russian Federation, and the president's apparent fixation on a story about a dossier with salacious allegations against the president. I want you to know that nothing - nothing - has happened in the a year ago to change my view.' On the verge of tears, Comey told Obama, 'Boy, were those words I needed to hear. "I'm a flawed human being, but there is literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true". Clinton herself has pointed to Comey's actions in explaining her presidential election loss.

"I had developed great respect for him as a leader and a person", Comey writes at one point. 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.
