WASHINGTON (WTXF) - Explosive excerpts from a tell-all book from former FBI Director James Comey.
The President fired Comey in May of last year claiming it was because of the way Comey handled the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices. Among the excerpts released tonight by the Associated Press and other news outlets Comey described Trump's presidency as a "forest fire" and wrote that his interactions with the administration recalled "my earlier career as a prosecutor against the mob.”
Comey continuing with the mafia theme describes a dinner on January 27th with Trump where he said the President told him: "I need loyalty. I expect loyalty."
Comey also writing about Trump's marriage to first lady Melania revealing that Trump asked him to investigate salacious allegations about his actions with Russian prostitutes. “It bothered President Trump if there was even a one percent chance his wife Melania, thought it was true," Comey wrote and later mused, "In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn’t do that?"
And in another jab the 6'-8' Comey describes the president as shorter than he expected with a "too long" tie and "bright white half-moons" under his eyes that Comey suggests came from tanning goggles. He also mentioned he checked the size of the President's hands. It’s a controversy that cropped up during the GOP Presidential debates.
Comey’s book his shelves April 17th.
