US President Donald Trump has released a fury against former FBI director James Comey who calls him "slippery" and insisted that he never asked him for loyalty and labeling of him "THE WORST FBI Director in History long!"  Trump fired a series of tweets the night before an interview Comey did with ABC that was set to air in full breakfast Monday AEST.
In an excerpt that appeared this weekend, Comey expressed his belief that Hillary Clinton would win 2016. The presidential election was a factor in his decision to expose the investigation of her emails.
Trump grabbed it and said Comey "made decisions that he thought she would win and he wanted a job. Slimeball!"
Trump pressed again against Comey's claims that Trump sought his loyalty and said that it was "just one of his many lies."
Comey is launching a public publication of his book, A higher loyalty coming out Tuesday.
The book offers Comey's version of highly controversial events about his shot at Trump and the studies of Russian election interference and Clinton's e-mail practice.
In that, Comey Trump compares with a mafia donor and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and personal loyalty. " Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and refused a dismissal by the Ministry of Justice which led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Advisor for the Surveillance of the Russian Federation.
Mueller's probe has expanded to include if Trump prevented justice by shooting Comey, as the president denies.
Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's study of Clinton's e-mail practices.
Trump used the study as a cudgel in the campaign and repeatedly said Clinton was imprisoned for using a personal email system while serving as state secretary.
Democrats, on the other hand, have accused Comey of politicizing the investigation, and Clinton himself has said that it hurts the election prospects.
In the interview released Saturday, Comey said he did not remember "deliberate thinking" about the election results when he decided to reveal that the FBI had reopened its investigation of Clinton's e-mail usage but he said "I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was to beat Donald Trump, and I'm sure it was a factor. "
He added:" I can not remember spelling it out, but it should have been she's elected president, and if I hide it from the American people she becomes illegal the moment she is selected as soon as it comes out. "
