Among other things, the book claims President Trump is "unethical" and "untethered to truth and institutional values".
In a clip released Saturday by ABC News, George Stephanopoulos asks Comey about his motivations in revealing that information to Congress.
"Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the bad job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump tweeted of Comey. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He is a weak and. I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.
First Syria, now James Comey. Comey details his conversations with Trump in the early weeks of 2017, noting how often Trump tried to isolate Comey one-on-one and elicit a pledge of loyalty.
James Comey, the President fumed, is a "slippery" "slimeball" who should be tossed in jail, with a "badly reviewed" and "FAKE" memoir, only confirming his rank as the "WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"
President Donald Trump renewed his attack on James Comey Sunday after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said his belief Hillary Clinton would probably win the 2016 presidential race may have played a role in his handling of the Clinton emails probe.
Indeed, Trump's Friday morning tweets about Comey are some of his best-composed.
Comey, who was appointed in 2013 by former President Barack Obama, writes that he regrets his approach and some of the wording he used in his July 2016 press conference in which he announced the decision not to recommend charges be brought against Clinton. "I want you to know that nothing - nothing - has happened in the past year to change my view". "These rules and standards were hallmarks of the Mafia, but throughout my career I'd be surprised how often I'd find them applied outside of it", Comey writes.
When Comey explained to Trump that he was not under investigation and that he told Congress that much, Trump responded, "We need to get that fact out", Comey writes. Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research.
'What I found telling was what Trump and his team didn't ask.
"I haven't watched TV to watch that", she said on the CBS program "Face the Nation".
He described Trump as volatile, defensive and concerned more about his own image than about alleged Russian meddling in the presidential election.
But Comey wrote in his book he found her position "very odd", as she did not fully recuse herself. "I sat there thinking, Holy crap, they are trying to make each of us "amica nostra" - friend of ours".
Some of the early news coverage of Comey's memoir has made a mockery of Trump, including the cover of Friday's Daily News in NY.
As for "lewd dossier allegations" the Post alludes to in its headline? "I expect loyalty", Comey writes.
On April 11 - the last time the two men spoke before Comey was sacked on May 9 - Trump called Comey to make sure they were going to "get out" that Trump was not under investigation. Instead of facing insistent questions about the "nice and new and 'smart!'" missiles Trump told Russian Federation, over Twitter, to be "ready" to face in Syria, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders got to grandstand a bit by relaying a list of damning criticisms of Comey from a host of Democrats.
