Trump Blasts Comey in Barrage of Tweets, Calling Him 'Slippery'

"With former FBI Director #James Comey releasing his new book titled "#A Higher Truth" next week, Donald Trump has not been happy about what has been revealed.

He also said that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation boss was "not smart" and "will go down as the worst Federal Bureau of Investigation director in history - by far!", adding that his book was "self-serving and FAKE!".

"I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I'm sure that it was a factor", Comey said.

Trump also tweeted that Comey's mishandling of the Clinton email probe deserves "jail" time and called him a "slimeball".

"This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", Comey said in the book due out Tuesday, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters.

"Why did he lie to Congress (jail)", Mr Trump said, adding: "How come he gave up classified information (jail)". "Two or three briefings is about what I had with James Comey", Ryan, who announced his retirement last week, told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press".

In fact, Trump has struggled to find lawyers to handle Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and any potential coordination with Trump's campaign, and investigators in NY say they took Cohen's materials in the Monday raid because his communications with clients could be part of the commission of a crime.

Comey admitted that it might have factored into his decision to take another look at Clinton's email use just 11 days before voters went to the ballot box. But Comey writes in his book that after the 2016 election, then-President Obama told Comey that he remained confident in his "integrity" and "ability". Trump tweets: "It was my great honor to fire him".

Mr. Trump balked at that description, writing on Twitter, "Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary". Mr. Trump's early-morning missives slammed the ex-director as a "slimeball", while simultaneously casting Comey as someone he "hardly knew". Just another of his many lies. Lynch accepted Comey's recommendation not to charge Clinton. "His "memos" are self-serving and FAKE!" "No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!"

The former FBI director, who was abruptly fired by Trump previous year, announced in July 2016 that he would not recommend charges in the investigation of Clinton's email practices.
