James Comey is not a hero

President Donald Trump prepares to speak in the Oval Office last week

But the president also tweeted: "Attorney client privilege is now a thing of the past", referring to the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid last week on his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Trump called Comey an "untruthful slime ball" and said it was his "great honor" to fire the veteran Justice Department prosecutor.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, stating it was recommended by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Comey's book, which leaked out last week ahead of its official release Tuesday, takes on the president who fired him in May 2017 over the troubling Russian Federation election meddling investigation, a probe that poses a deep threat to Trump's 15-month-old presidency. Oddly, Trump, of all people, should know that he's probably selling Comey's book simply by mentioning it.

Comey referenced the comments in his bombshell interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, saying: 'He shouldn't have done it'.

"Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers", Trump wrote on Twitter. Framing his choice as between "speak" and "conceal", he argued that if it only came out after the election that the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clinton's emails, that would "destroy the institutions that I love".

The wire reporting service also won the feature photography award for following the plight of Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar. For exposing decades-old allegations of sexual harassment of teenage girls against Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.

"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' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos.

"To me that kind of salacious commentary diminishes Jim Comey, raises more questions about his true desire here", Hosko continued.

Comey discussed the decision-making that went into announcing just days before the election that the FBI was re-opening the Clinton email investigation.

At the same time, Rogers thinks Comey took the bait, and he was thinking with emotions over the situation with Trump. Prosecutors indicated in court filings last week that Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months by the USA attorney in Manhattan and that, unrelated to the FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, a grand jury has been hearing evidence in the case. If you're not watching American Idol or The Good Fight, you're watching a special interview about the moral bankruptcy of Donald Trump. "He looked slightly orange up close", said Comey.

"I don't know the guy", he added.

But Mr Comey's final judgement of Mr Trump was expressed in those moral terms, and was devastating.

Former FBI Director James Comey didn't hold back his opinions on President Donald Trump during his first sit-down interview since being fired via tweet.

The president soon turned his focus to the Cohen raid, an aggressive move by prosecutors in the Southern District of NY, who were referred material by special counsel Robert Mueller III's team. "It's possible." However, Comey said he was against the idea of Trump being impeached and removed from office "because it would let the American people off the hook, and have something happen indirectly, that I believe they're duty bound to do directly" - that is, vote Trump out of office.

Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's reaction was that Comey has "been proven to be dishonest", and has "such a lack of credibility". Comey remembered Trump saying, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go".

"I think he's morally unfit to be president", Comey said, in his first televised interview since being fired in May past year.
