James Comey: Trump's Comment May Be Obstruction Of Justice

Conway's pushback is part of a concerted effort the White House and Republican National Committee to undermine Comey's credibility as he conducts a media blitz to promote his book, "A Higher Calling: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, " which is set to be released Tuesday.

Patrice Failor Comey spells out her clear preference in the election many critics say her husband helped tilt in the same bombshell ABC interview where Comey talks about Trump's hair and skin tone and says he doesn't know if the president us under the sway of the Russians.

It followed the now well-known "loyalty dinner" at which, Comey says, Trump asked for his allegiance, a request Comey has likened to the behavior of a mob boss.

Trump and his loyal White House aides in turn lashed out at Comey, with the President virtually threatening him with jail time for "lying" to Congress, and suggesting that he and other establishment personnel from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which he called a "den of thieves and lowlifes, " were in cahoots with Democrats and "committed many crimes".

Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 USA presidential election on June 8, 2017. Many believe his reopening of the FBI's inquiry into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as Secretary of State barely a week before the election, while making no mention of the active inquiry into Mr Trump and Russian Federation, swung the election to Mr Trump.

The president also seemed to be responding to the FBI raid on and court-authorized search of the office of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who authorities said has been under criminal investigation for months. "This president is not able to do that", he said.

I think we owe it to each other to get off the couch and think about what unites us.

I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly.

Speaking on Sunday's "Reliable Sources" on CNN, former presidential adviser David Gergen said that Comey "can be a showboat".

Trump's accusation that Comey "lied in Congress to Senator G" appears to be referring to Sens.

"I'm not going to try and help sell some books here", Ryan said.

He added: "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out".

"And I have every confidence that Jim Comey accurately copied, collected, recounted what exactly went on during those discussions", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said.

"If colleagues of ours believe I am lying about when I made this decision, please urge them to contact me privately so we can have a conversation about this", Comey told lawmakers at the time.

He talked about his first meeting with President-elect Donald Trump in January 2017 - noting the elaborately coiffed hair, which Mr Comey says "looks to be all his".

"If he called you today saying he meant to quit, what would you tell him?"

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

"I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don't know whether the ― the ― current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013", Comey said.
