Comey book likens Trump to Mob boss -Washington Post

Comey book likens Trump to Mob boss -Washington Post
President Donald Trump denied allegations of lewd behavior made in an intelligence dossier given to U.S. intelligence agencies, fired FBI Director James Comey wrote in an upcoming memoir, according to the Washington Post. Produced by Zachary Goelman
Fired FBI Director James Comey's forthcoming memoir describes what he calls, "the forest fire that is the Trump presidency."

In excerpts shared by the Washington Post on Thursday, Comey says his interactions with President Donald Trump gave him flashbacks to his days as a prosecutor against the Mob.

"The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth."

Trump on Friday erupted in response, calling Comey 'a proven LEAKER AND LIAR,' an 'untruthful slime ball,' and saying 'It was my great honor to fire James Comey!'

President Donald Trump's firing of Comey last year lead the Justice Department to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller to probe allegations Russia tried to sway the U.S. election, and whether Trump tried to hamper that investigation.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IN AN EXCHANGE WITH A REPORTER (MAY 10, 2017):

REPORTER: "Mr. President, why did you fire Director Comey? Why did you fire Director Comey?

TRUMP: "Because he wasn't doing a good job, very simply. He was not doing a good job."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI) DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY, SAYING DURING CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY (JUNE 8, 2017):

"It confused me when I saw on television the president saying that he actually fired me because of the Russia investigation."

Comey's hotly anticipated account, titled "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," comes the same week that Trump raged on Twitter against the Russia probe.

Donald Trump has called suggestions of collusion with Russia a 'witch hunt.'

Comey's book is scheduled to be released on Tuesday.
