Here's what we learned about Trump from passages of Comey's new book

Failor said she still wanted Clinton to win even as she felt the former secretary of state attacked the agency her husband helmed

Nonetheless, many searched for the definition of "slimeball" Friday morning after President Trump used it in a fiery tweet directed at ex-FBI chief James Comey.

"The big question in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (why didn't they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe's $700,000 & more?" "He lied to Congress under OATH".

Mr Ryan, asked whether Mr Comey was a man of integrity, said, "as far as I know" but added that he did not know him well.

Comey also claimed that the US President asked him to investigate the allegations from the "dossier".

The excerpts sparked another furious round of tweets by Trump, calling Comey a "slime ball" and saying he "stupidly" handled a probe into Trump's 2016 election rival Hillary Clinton. 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.

In his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee previous year, Comey said he believes the President asked him to "drop any investigation of Flynn", a reference to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"This President is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", Comey wrote.


Trump's had a very bad week - his personally attorney's office and house was raided.

Comey kept contemporaneous memos of his interactions with the president and told the Senate Intelligence Committee last June that he did so because he thought Trump might lie about them.

He casts Mr Trump as a mafia boss-like figure who sought to blur the line between law enforcement and politics and tried to pressure him regarding his investigation into Russian election interference. "I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been". Comey told ABC News that after this, Trump said something that distracted him: "He said, 'If there's even a one percent chance my wife thinks that's true, that's bad'".

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC.

In his press tour, Comey is sure to be asked to weigh in on Trump and the various twists and turns in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election as well as any potential links between Russia and Trump campaign associates.

Comey might be better seen in the light of Washington Under Trump, where other top officials expected to fade into the background have instead become powerfully vocal anti-Trump forces: Clapper (a Comey pal) and former Central Intelligence Agency directors Michael Hayden and John Brennan.
