In new book, Comey says Trump is 'untethered to truth'

In new book, Comey says Trump is 'untethered to truth'”

"How unusual is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss?".

The Republican National Committee (RNC) and allies of President Donald Trump are already pushing a counter-narrative against former FBI Director James Comey ahead of his much-hyped interview on ABC later this week.

Kelly, Comey recalls, said he was "sick" about the situation and "intended to quit" in protest. The version of this story that Kelly has told other senior staffers clashes markedly with Comey's, the official noted, and does not include Kelly calling President Trump "dishonorable".

Comey's book, "A Higher Loyalty", will be released Thursday and is expected to give some insight into his fraught relationship with Trump in the months leading up to his May 2017 firing. The Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel in the Russian Federation probe after it was revealed that Trump had asked Comey to drop the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Many Democrats, meanwhile, are hopeful that new revelations will further bolster a case for the president's impeachment.

Secretary of state nominee Mike Pompeo grilled about closeness to Trump
Pompeo's entrance to the committee room was met by anti-war protesters, who wielded signs and yelled "No Pompeo, no more war". CIA Director Mike Pompeo , President Trump's nominee for secretary of state, leaves a meeting in Washington on Monday.

He also asks whether Comey believes the President obstructed justice.

Mr. Trump fired Mr. Comey as FBI director a year ago, and Mr. Comey then leaked accounts of his conversations with the president in hopes of spurring a special counsel investigation. The White House reportedly signed off on the attack plan.

Doug Heye, a former RNC communications director, said the Republican effort shows Comey's publicity tour is "going to dominate news coverage". "And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not". "One chair for George, one for me". The talking points call Comey's credibility into question by focusing on what the RNC calls his "long history of misstatements and misconduct".

The "Lyin' Comey" website also portrays him as a politically motivated Washington insider.

The book will be released on April 17.

Many Democrats had reacted with outrage after Comey informed lawmakers of new information related to the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

An old quotation from Clinton is prominently displayed on the "Lyin'Comey" website, with Trump's former Democratic rival saying that Comey "badly overstepped his bounds". "He's no longer the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to me - he's a political operative". Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., ("It would not be a bad thing for the American people if [Comey] did step down.").
