"We find that Mr. Comey has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntled ex-employee, afterall he was sacked", Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway added. The full Comey-Stephanopoulos interview airs on Sunday night at 10 PM ET on ABC.

Trump renewed his attacks on Comey on Sunday morning, calling him a "Slimeball" and accusing him of "many lies". Trump has strongly denied the allegation, and Comey says that it appeared the president wanted it investigated to reassure his wife, Melania Trump.

"And in fact when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said 'you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won, '" said the president. In May, shortly after Comey's dismissal, he rejected Trump's description of Comey as a "nut job" and said "I like Comey" - though he also defended Trump's decision to fire him. "Never has been and I don't think anyone should have expected him to be", Moss wrote online.

"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary (Clinton) was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe".

"The big questions in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered, like how come he gave up classified information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give server to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (why didn't they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe's $700,000 & more?". "It was smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so", Comey reportedly wrote in his book, describing the moment he first met the president past year.

"I don't think it's necessary", he said.

'Consequences' for Syria strike: Russian Federation
Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security. US allies have offered strong words of support for Washington but no clear military plans have yet emerged.

But it was the Cheney-Addington showdown that established Comey's independence in the minds of many in Washington, D.C. It also appears to have impressed the man who would become the next president, Barack Obama.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Twitter Friday: "One of the few areas of true bipartisan consensus in Washington is Comey has no credibility". "Again, very odd", Comey wrote.

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC. During the campaign, Comey never informed the public that he was investigating Trump's ties to Russian Federation. In it, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty".

"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 leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told CNN he had "every confidence" in the accuracy of Comey's book.
