President Donald Trump prepares to speak in the Oval Office last week

Former FBI director James Comey said his first thought after he read a letter from the White House telling him he had been fired was: "That's insane".

The former FBI director also again said Trump asked for his loyalty as the FBI, but Comey, who was appointed to the job by Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, said his loyalty is supposed to be to the American people and to the institution of the FBI.

Comey spoke in detail about his uncomfortable first meeting with Trump in Trump Tower in January 2017, in which he delicately informed the then president-elect of the allegations in Christopher Steele's dossier, which claimed that Trump met with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel in 2013.

His interview with ABC is set to air on Sunday.

"I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia", Comey said of Trump, according to a transcript from ABC. "But I was determined there's not going to be a hug, because I'm not a master of television but I knew that would be a real problem".

"These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", Comey told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos.

When this occurs, traders will be watching closely to see if the price breaks through a key level into overbought territory. As a general observance, the more overbought or oversold the reading displays, the more likely a reversal may take place.

"It reminded me of the inauguration crowd thing", Comey said, referring to the president's dubious statements about crowd size.

Comey's firing came as the Federal Bureau of Investigation was probing possible connections between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia's meddling in the American elections. But Trump later said he was thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" around the time he chose to fire Comey. 3 presidents are in my book: 2 help illustrate the values at the heart of ethical leadership; 1 serves as a counterpoint.

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the election and Trump has denied any collusion or improper activity. It was, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated interviews of the year.

He also feared that she would be called an "illegitimate president" if he did not carry out the investigation.

The FBI director, who until his firing last May led an investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, acknowledged that it was "stunning" to think that Russian Federation could have damaging information about an American president.

"I'm walking forward thinking, 'How could he think this is a good idea?' That he's going to try to hug me, the guy that a whole lot of people think, although that's not true, but think I tried to get him elected president and did".

The mechanism would look at cases where the OPCW fact-finding mission has established chemical weapons were used or likely used. McKenzie told the Pentagon briefing on April 14 that the U.S. -British-French operation "successfully hit every target".

Asked whether he believed Trump ought to be impeached, Comey said that was a political and legal question.

'People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values'. "So I turn to them and I said, 'Someone put a lot of work into that'".

Still, he says it strikes him as unlikely, but something that he can't say without high confidence.

Comey described both their arms as "tense" during the encounter and also described how Trump leaned forward to Comey's right ear to say he was looking forward to working together.

Trump already attacked Comey on Friday, calling him "a proven LEAKER & LIAR" who should be prosecuted for leaking classified information.

Trump and his allies have already launched a counterattack.

Trump declares 'mission accomplished' after US-led airstrikes in Syria
But I think it accurately summed up where we were at the time, mission accomplished... the mission was to topple Saddam Hussein. Officers mentioned this didn't embrace giving Russian advance discover of the place or when allied airstrikes would occur.

Comey told ABC News that he knew the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server was going to present a "no-win situation" for him. His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!'
