Former FBI head: assumption Clinton would win a factor in email probe

Former FBI head: assumption Clinton would win a factor in email probe

"I know you. You were in an impossible position", Schumer told him, according to Comey.

Some have compared this book to the previous release of the Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury", [VIDEO] but as Wolff has always been known to play loose with facts, the Comey book is certain to carry more weight.

Copies of the book were first obtained by news outlets on Thursday.

What are the most explosive claims in James Comey's memoir? "If I ever start considering whose political fortunes will be affected by a decision, we're done, '" Comey said.

They are certainly better written than Comey's certain bestseller, if excerpts like these are any indication: "His face appeared slightly orange with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coifed, bright blond hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his". He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. But Ryan again declined to endorse any legislation that would protect Mueller from being fired by Trump.

CNN obtained a copy of the book and Comey explains that Trump wanted him to investigate one of the allegations included in a dossier about Trump's connections to Russian Federation. Trump's leadership, Comey says, is "transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty".

And the Italian legend said he still believes that 33-year-old referee Oliver lacked experience. Buffon went on to claim that Oliver was "too young" to officiate a Champions League semi-final.

Trump didn't take the revelations lying down, calling out Comey on Twitter a "weak and untruthful slime ball", and a "proven LEAKER & LIAR". Comey expressed concern about creating a narrative that the president was being investigated personally and that it was hard to prove something never happened. Comey also revealed during the hearing that he documented his interactions with Trump because he was "concerned" that the President "might lie about the nature of our meeting". 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.

Comey's firing set in motion the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion by Trump's presidential campaign with Russians.

"I knew how badly Obama had wanted Hillary Clinton to win the White House".

Though Democrats and their mainstream media allies have lavished disgraced former FBI Director James Comey with praise for his upcoming gossip book, not everybody feels similarly, including his own former coworkers. "I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been". By that point, Trump had already lectured Comey extensively on why the "pee tape" allegations couldn't possibly be true.

Speaking with reporters at the White House, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Comey "seems like a disgruntled ex-employee; after all, he was sacked".

"Look. I'm not going to try and help sell some books here", Ryan responded, maintaining during the exchange that he did not know the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director well.
