Trump demands prosecution of ex-FBI chief Comey

Trump demands prosecution of ex-FBI chief Comey

In the book to be released officially next Tuesday, Comey, whom Trump fired in May 2017, says the United States president lives in "a cocoon of alternative reality" that he tried to pull others around him into, according to The Washington Post.

Comey's no holds barred account of his meetings with Trump before he was sacked at times appears mean spirited, but also conveys a sense of disbelief about the 45th president's behavior.

Comey describes Trump as having been obsessed with the portion dealing with prostitutes in the infamous dossier compiled by British former intelligence officer Christopher Steele, raising it at least four times with the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

"One of the President's greatest achievements will go down as firing Director James Comey", she concluded.

"His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst "botch jobs" of history".

The US president lives in "a cocoon of alternative reality" that he tried to pull others around him into, he adds.

Mr Donald Trump asked Mr Comey to help debunk lewd allegations made in the Trump-Russia dossier Mr Comey described two conversations in January past year with Mr Trump in which the President sought his help to knock down an unverified report alleging that Mr Trump had been caught on video with hired prostitutes and had watched them urinate on a bed in a Moscow hotel room in 2013.

Trump is not thrilled by Comey's book and A Higher Loyalty's recent publicity surge. "It's possible, but I don't know", Comey told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. It's lead headline is "PEE BRAIN!" - a reference to unconfirmed allegations in the dossier that Trump had watched prostitutes urinate on themselves in a Moscow hotel suite.

"His face appeared slightly orange", Comey writes, "with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coifed, bright blond hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his".

Leaks of Comey's book were released on Thursday and Friday ahead of the book's release in stores and online on Tuesday.

The interviews are Comey's first public comments since he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June, when he accused Trump of firing him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

"President-elect Trump's first question was to confirm that it had no impact on the election", Comey said.

Many Democrats blame Mr Comey's public investigation into Mrs Clinton's email server for her bruising election loss. Trump has denied any collusion.
