President Trump again calls James Comey a 'slimeball' ahead of new book

James Comey testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's alleged interference in the

In Comey's book, he describes in great detail the ways in which Trump has allegedly violated the independence of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and attempted to coerce loyalty out of Comey, according to The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the book, titled "A Higher Royalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership" prior to its release.

Reuters and other news outlets have obtained copies of Comey's book before its formal release this week.

On a more-personal level, Comey describes Trump repeatedly asking him to consider investigating an allegation involving Trump and Russian prostitutes urinating on a bed in a Moscow hotel, in order to prove it was a lie. "But I don't know". "Really weird. It was nearly an out of body experience for me".

Comey's new book, replete with highly unflattering characterizations of Trump, is garnering wide attention in advance of its release. Comey was also joined by NSA Director Mike Rogers, CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go, " Trump said, according to Comey's account of the meeting, some of which he first shared in Senate testimony past year.

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

During her tenure as the US Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, Hillary Clinton used a private server and email accounts for official business, which became the focus of an official FBI investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information. But with Republicans standing by the President in spite of a slew of bad press, the bottom hasn't fallen out of Trump's numbers.

"That's what I want, honest loyalty", Trump responded.

He casts himself as an oracle and a savior, his clarion warning for America to get back on the path to truth and justice. During the campaign, Comey never informed the public that he was investigating Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

But Comey's critics see him as now just another player of the political ring.

Trump on Friday called for him to be prosecuted.

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 told the outgoing president that he would brief Trump on the salacious details of the so-called Steele dossier.

They too have stunned Washington with their warnings of the dangers the president poses to the United States. In a Monmouth University poll last May, the numbers were almost identical with 10% of Democrats approving of Trump's to fire Comey compared with 74% of Republicans.
