Trump's call to put him in jail isn't 'normal': Comey

Sunday night, ABC aired an interview with Comey, who is promoting his new book, " A Higher Loyalty", in which he declares the President to be morally unfit to lead the nation. The threats to the rule of law and the threats most of all to the truth. This President is not able to do that.

"Our President must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country", Comey told ABC's chief anchor, George Stephanopoulos, on the programme 20/20.

Trump has denied asking Comey to stop investigating Flynn and insisted he never asked for loyalty. "I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".

"I just thought the same thing", Comey replied, adding, "I'm not the best judge".

A longtime Republican who said he did not vote in 2016, Comey on Wednesday also said he no longer considered himself a member of the party.

In this way he has joined Trump - who tweeted that Comey was a "slimeball" - in the sandpit with all the other toddlers, and rather detracts from the impact of his other assertions.

Comey recounted in the interview another meeting where he said Trump asked for his loyalty. The former MA governor is a "person of principle and honor", Comey said in the ABC interview.

"In fact when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story", he said. "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!"

Conservative commentators, such as Fox News host Tucker Carlson, have attacked Comey as partisan and indecisive in his handling of the email scandal that dogged Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.

President Donald Trump is renewing his attacks on James Comey after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's scathing interview on ABC. After Clinton's loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects. "I don't know", Comey responded. He may conclude that there is nothing that touches President Trump or any of his senior people.

Comey said he urged Kelly to remain in the administration. Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a witch hunt and denied any collusion.

Comey also commented Tuesday on recent allegations involving his former deputy Andrew McCabe. "I just think they've lost their way and I can't be associated with it".

"He's criticizing the President in a way that I don't feel like we've heard before", said Prof. And Clinton herself has said his actions hurt her candidacy.

"That is not normal, that is not okay", Comey told George Stephanopoulos on GMA. I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been.

Trump expressed his dissatisfaction with those comments on Twitter. "He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on". Comey pushed back on those accusations during the interview, saying the FBI has acted appropriately and that personal feelings did not impact the Russian Federation investigation.
