In two angry tweets Friday morning, Trump called Comey a "proven LEAKER & LIAR" and a "weak and untruthful slime ball".

President Trump's rage at the Russian Federation investigation often manifests in insult-laden attacks, especially aimed at former FBI director James B. Comey. "Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the bad job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump wrote in a Twitter tirade.

He also reveals new details about how the government had unverified classified information that he believes could have been used to cast doubt on Attorney General Loretta Lynch's independence in the Clinton probe. "He lied to Congress under OATH", Trump tweeted.

Excerpts from Comey's forthcoming book, "A Higher Loyalty", describes Trump's "mob"-like approach to his job and likens his presidency to a "forest fire". Comey's book is already at number 11 on Amazon's bestsellers of 2018 - Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, another Trump presidency-focused book, is now at number one.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders questioned Comey's credibility in a tweet and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Comey took "unnecessary, immature pot shots".

Comey said he tried to tell Trump that he didn't know if the allegations were true, but wanted to inform the president that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had the information.

Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe.

At the time of his firing, Comey knew that the dossier had been funded by Trump's opponents, and that the allegations were most likely false.

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

"I said to myself, I said, "You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won, '" he tells NBC News" Lester Holt. "It absolutely is legal for Comey to share his own private reflections that do not consist of closely held national security secrets with the press, whether by passing on the information himself or through a friend", University of Minnesota Law Professor Heidi Kitrosser explained at the time.

President Obama had a pretty amusing reaction to Comey saying he would inform Trump about the pee-pee tape allegations.

"I don't speak like that", he said, adding: "By the way, I wouldn't do that because you're going to help him sell books".

Russian ambassador to USA threatens with consequences for strikes on Syria
President Donald Trump also ordered strikes about the same time a year ago , also in response to reported chemical weapon usage. The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".

Comey is embarking on a public rollout of his book, A Higher Loyalty, which comes out on Tuesday. "I really disagreed with him".

However, Mr. Comey acknowledges that he thought Mrs. Clinton would win the presidency and said it is "entirely possible" that he made a decision to reveal that the email investigation had started up again 11 days before the election because he was primarily concerned that if he concealed the renewed investigation, it would make her an "illegitimate president".

The White House has unleashed a blistering critique of former FBI Director James Comey as he begins promoting his memoir.

Meetings with Trump gave Comey "flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob", he says.

In the book, Comey also writes of some of Trumps physical attributes in an unflattering way.

On the verge of tears, Comey told Obama, "Boy, were those words I needed to hear".
