Trump calls for prosecuting 'liar' ex-FBI chief Comey

Comey's book is already at number 11 on Amazon's bestsellers of 2018 - Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, another Trump presidency-focused book, is now at number one.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation. Comey will discuss his firing in an interview with "20/20" tonight. CNN's Anderson Cooper will host a town hall with Comey on April 25.

The book A Higher Loyalty is to be released next week.

Trump went on to call "Slippery James Comey" the "WORST FBI Director in history, by far" and insist that the notes Comey took documenting his conversations with Trump are "FAKE".

Comey has indeed faced criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike - and the release of his book gives him a high-profile platform to defend himself.

Comey had acknowledged that his belief that Clinton would be elected president "was a factor" in his decision to reopen the email probe 11 days before the U.S. election.

Comey, who was appointed in 2013 by former President barackobama, writes that he summarizes his technique plus a few of the wording he utilized within his July 2016 media conference in.

Asked how freaky that meeting with Trump was, Comey said: "Very weird".

Body found near Hart family SUV crash site
The bodies of Jennifer and Sarah Hart were found March 26 inside their vehicle at the rocky shoreline below a cliff. She told police she had spanked the child over the edge of the bathtub because of the child's behavior.

The publicity tour - and the book - will be the first time the American public has heard extensively from Comey since his explosive testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June of previous year.

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty", tweeted Trump, who purportedly asked Comey for a loyalty pledge.

At that dinner, he told Comey, "I need loyalty".

Mr Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Mr Trump obstructed justice by firing Mr Comey, something the President denies.

Details about the ABC interview have already started to come out.

The allegations left Trump fuming. In the clip, Comey characterizes the situation as surreal. Its lead headline is “PEE BRAIN!” - a reference to unconfirmed allegations in the dossier that Trump had watched prostitutes urinate on themselves in a Moscow hotel suite. I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump. In the book, Comey compares Trump to a mob boss who demands loyalty from all those around him, even if it means twisting the truth.

In an excerpt shown Saturday, Comey says his belief that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election was a factor in his decision to disclose the investigation into her emails. Flynn subsequently accepted a plea deal with investigators, pleading guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about conversations he had with Russia's ambassador to the United States. 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.
