Comey Says Trump Is Like a 'Mob Boss' in Upcoming Interview

James Comey says President Donald Trump 'untethered to truth' in new book

The Beast writes that Kelly had meant to quit in protest over Comey's departure, but according to sources who have read the book, Comey writes that he urged Kelly to stay on, saying "this president" needs people of integrity inside the administration.

The Republican National Committee launched the lyincomey.com website on Thursday, which highlights previous criticisms of Comey by Democrats and urges visitors to "check the facts" before believing any claims his "grandstanding book" will make.

Mr. Trump fired Comey a year ago while he was leading the investigation into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election.

In an interview with ABC News' George Stephanoplous airing on Sunday, Stephanopoulos suggests that Comey compared Mr. Trump to a "mob boss".

The interview will be aired two days before Comey's new book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, is released.

U.S. President Donald Trump (C) shakes hands with James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), during an Inaugural Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders Reception in the Blue Room of the White House on January 22, 2017 in Washington, DC. The talking points call Comey's credibility into question by focusing on what the RNC calls his "long history of misstatements and misconduct".

Kelly added that he "intended to quit", Comey writes, and "said he didn't want to work for dishonorable people".

Among those quoted on the RNC website is the 2016 Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, who argued her campaign was seriously undercut by the FBI's investigation, overseen by Comey, into her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

Doug Heye, a former RNC communications director, said the Republican effort shows Comey's publicity tour is "going to dominate news coverage".

"Are there things that you know but haven't said that could damage President Trump?".

Trump has called Comey a "leaker", accused him of running "the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation" and used him as a means to challenge the FBI and the Justice Department.
