Ex-FBI chief Comey vs Trump: How Twitter saw row

Ex-FBI chief Comey vs Trump: How Twitter saw row

Trump past year abruptly removed Comey who was overseeing a criminal probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election that was won by him.

The dossier includes salacious details about Trump's alleged behaviour with prostitutes in Moscow in 2013.

"This guy swung an election", Conway said on ABC's Good Morning America, seeming to suggest that Comey had contributed to Trump's victory - a theory unlikely to find favor with the president.

Stephanopoulos will interview Comey again Tuesday, live on ABC's morning show, "GMA".

Comparing the President to a mafia boss, he claimed that Trump was left vulnerable to blackmail and exploitation by the Russian government because of his association with Russian prostitutes and that he was burning up the nation's norms and traditions like a "wildfire".

Trump abruptly fired Comey in May, and Trump's tweet summarizing his overall perspective on Comey comes as no surprise: "Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!" "No FBI director has ever been fired as he was investigating a president", Stephanopoulos told CNNMoney.

Mr Schwerin was apparently referring to Mr Comey's investigation into defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's handling of classified emails on a private server while she was the secretary of state.

Comey acknowledged in the ABC interview that his belief that Clinton would be elected president "was a factor" in his decision to reopen the email probe 11 days before the U.S. election, a development that Clinton blames for her surprise defeat.

In a subsequent CNN interview, she made clear she was paraphrasing Democrats who feel that Comey swung the election.

When asked about his first impression of Trump, Comey said he was similar to how he "thought he looked on television".

And Comey said the president may have obstructed justice when he asked him to drop an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Trump's tweet came the morning after Comey gave his first televised interview since he was unceremoniously fired last May while overseeing the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the United States election.

Trump has denied having asked Comey for his loyalty. They will be looking to impeach Comey's credibility as a key witness in Mueller's obstruction investigation, which the president has cast as a political motivated witch hunt.

But the president's characterization that Comey was influenced by polls is an oversimplification of what the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director wrote.

Some also felt Comey brazenly admitted to illegal acts in the interview, which should be prosecuted. Comey said he did not remember "consciously thinking" about the election results as he chose to disclose that the FBI had reopened its investigation into candidate Clinton's email use.

Clinton has asserted that she would have been elected president if Comey hadn't re-opened the investigation. Flynn and two of the president's campaign aides, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, have pleaded guilty and are cooperating with Mueller. "People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values".
