Trump goes on Twitter rant against Comey ahead of explosive interview

President Donald Trump renewed his attack on James Comey Sunday after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said his belief Hillary Clinton would probably win the 2016 presidential race may have played a role in his handling of the Clinton emails probe. "It was my great honor to fire James Comey!". Based on early excerpts, we've compiled some of the book's most pivotal takeaways.

Washington national security lawyer Bradley Moss said Comey's claim to the moral high ground has always been weak.

The excerpts from Mr Comey's memoir have infuriated the United States president, who insisted that he "never asked Comey for personal loyalty" and the he "hardly even knew this guy". "I don't know him very well". He mentioned a number of women, and seemed to have memorized their allegations.

Trump held his fire on Twitter for a time but unleashed Friday morning while stewing over more coverage. He said he didn't want to work for dishonourable people who would treat someone like me in such a manner.

"I've met him two or three times in two or three briefings", the speaker said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Clinton has said she thinks Comey's announcement about the email probe so close to the election killed her chances of winning.

Clinton herself has cited Comey's handling of the email probe as a reason she lost the election. But though Comey floats the possibility that his decision did impact the outcome of the election, he once again defends it in the book.

In an interview on ABC, set to air Sunday, Comey was asked whether his decision to re-open an investigation into Clinton's use of her private email account as secretary of state only weeks before the 2016 election was influenced by his belief she was going to win.

"As far as I know".

"A Higher Loyalty" is an intimate view of FBI investigations and prosecutions over Comey's career. The silent circle of assent. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview.

"Lying about things, large and small, in service to some warped code of loyalty".

The 6-foot-8 Comey describes Trump as shorter than he expected with a "too long" tie and "bright white half-moons" under his eyes that he suggests came from tanning goggles.

"No one, to my recollection, asked so what's coming next from the Russians, how might we stop it, what's the future look like", Comey said.

"He said he was sick about my firing and that he meant to quit in protest".

"He said if there's even a 1 per cent chance my wife thinks that's true, that's awful", Comey recalled.
