Trump morally unfit to be President: James Comey

Trump morally unfit to be President: James Comey

Meanwhile, Trump's reax to the FBI's raid on the office, home and hotel room of his personal attorney Michael Cohen - an "attack on our country", he tweeted - is equally disturbing and risky, Comey told Stephanopoulos.

Mr Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Mr Trump obstructed justice by firing Mr Comey, which the president denies.

Almost 7 in 10 Americans support tougher US sanctions against Russian Federation, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll that also finds roughly half the public saying President Donald Trump has done "too little" to criticize Russian Federation for alleged violations of global law. "And I think the reaction of most of us was, 'Meh, that's another one of those things.' This is not normal".

"People who tell themselves, "Well, yes, Donald Trump is unethical but I'm getting the right Supreme Court justice or the right regulatory rollback" are kidding themselves because if we lose that tether to the truth, if that stops being the norm at the heart of our public life, what are we?"

Comey's talk with George Stephanopoulos aired in anticipation of Tuesday's release of his book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, in which he is widely critical of Trump. The book also offers Comey's version of a private discussion with Trump about former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. But Comey deflected that idea in the NPR interview. I wrote memos, I wrote written testimony.

Authors of major news-making books usually appear first on "60 Minutes" and Comey's choice of ABC News - perhaps so he could get friendly questions from Clinton crony George Stephanopoulos - was unusual.

He added: "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out".

Yankees And Red Sox Brawl At Fenway
The Red Sox got a run back in the bottom of the first on a Hanley Ramirez home run, his second. "I took exception, " Cora said. Austin received a five-game suspension and a fine for charging the mound after he was hit by the 98-mph fastball.

Dozens reported dead after plane crashes in Algeria
President Abdelaziz Bouteflika's called for three days of official mourning for the soldiers and their families aboard the plane. Four years ago, another plane carrying military personnel and family members crashed in Algeria, killing 77 people .

Seahawks reportedly postpone a Colin Kaepernick workout over protest uncertainty
Reid, reportedly put off, declined to commit one way or the other and left without a contract offer. Kaepernick himself has been deposed under oath by the NFL's attorneys earlier this week in NY .

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, stating it was recommended by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Sessions is described as "overwhelmed and overmatched by the job".

In response, Lynch said in a statement, similarly to Comey, that the two of them have known each other for 30 years.

"Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers", Trump tweeted in his latest assault on Comey Monday. The president brought up the allegation multiple times, Comey writes, including an unprompted denial: "I'm a germaphobe".

He said that going forward, there will be large amount of interest into how the the investigation of the Clinton Foundation was handled and whether or not there was improper political intervention. "Values matter", Comey said. "And that's a wound that was inflicted by the president's actions on the Department of Justice". "He is morally unfit to be president". If he had any concerns regarding the email investigation, classified or not, he had ample opportunities to raise them with me both privately and in meetings. As he extended his hand, I made a mental note to check its size. That's when CNN law enforcement analyst James Gagliano, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, stepped in and set Stelter straight.

As for his future, Comey ruled out a run for political office - an idea his friends have floated, and which he may have teased by posting a photo on social media a year ago, standing on a road in Iowa.

He explained: 'I wasn't trying to go easy on her or hard on her. Nicole Cohen produced it for the Web.
