Former FBI Director James Comey said he believes "it's possible" that Russian Federation has compromising information on President Donald Trump. On May 11, The New York Times published an article citing "Comey's associates", who describe Comey recounting a January 27 dinner in which Trump allegedly said to him, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty". Asked whether Comey was a man of integrity, the Republican speaker said: "As far as I know", but added that he did not know him well.
Comey's firing came as the Federal Bureau of Investigation was probing possible connections between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia's meddling in the U.S. election.
"These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", Comey told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos.
He also suggested Comey should be imprisoned, saying, "how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail)".
"It's possible that in the moment, I should - you know, another person would have said, 'Sir, you can't ask me that". Rosenstein harshly criticized Comey's management of the investigation and his decision to publicly announce that the Clinton investigation had been closed in July 2016. Mr Trump wrote early yesterday in one of five Twitter posts aimed directly at Mr Comey.
Comey said Trump was most fixated on the allegations about the prostitutes and said that Trump later asked him if he could investigate those claims.
"There's something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country".

Comey is not the first to make such an allegation, but he is definitely not afraid to repeat it: Donald Trump runs his White House like a so-called "Mob Boss".
And the book promises to be a damning look at the Trump White House from the perspective of a man who was sacked by the 45th president.
"I think it's possible".
"I liken President Trump in the book to a forest fire".
Comey also said that serving in Trump's administration poses a serious ethical dilemma.
Comey spoke out two days before the release of his memoir, A Higher Loyalty.
Bartolo Colon Loses Perfect Game In Eighth Inning
Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colon carried a flawless game into the eighth inning against the Houston Astros on Sunday. In the third inning, Colon struck out Marwin Gonzalez and Derek Fisher to keep his ideal game bid alive.
Trump clapped back at Comey several times over the weekend including calling him a "slimeball".
Comey is now a crucial witness for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump has tried to obstruct the Russian Federation probe.
Comey also revealed his assumption that Hillary Clinton was going to win the election.
Where Trump's political opponent - former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - was concerned, Comey took time to explain the FBI's involvement in the scandal involving Clinton's alleged use of a private email server to send and receive confidential emails. He described being initially reluctant to prosecute Martha Stewart for lying to investigators, but then recalled a case when he was a federal prosecutor in Richmond and had charged a minister with the same thing.
"Yes. But not in the way m- I often hear people talk about it", he said.
The Insp. general says McCabe even lied to Comey, although McCabe disputes Comey's account. In a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday, Lynch said she was simply following longstanding Justice Department protocol against confirming or denying the existence of an investigation.
"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said.
