Former FBI director James Comey makes shocking claims about Trump

Stephanopoulos and Wentworth attend A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson's at The Waldorf Astoria

He did not mention President Trump, who earlier Sunday tore into Comey in a series of tweets calling the former G-man a "slimeball," "not smart" and saying he'll be remembered as the "WORST FBI director in history".

Late Sunday, Comey launched a publicity tour for his new memoir, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", with an ABC television interview in which he branded Trump a serial liar who will "stain everyone around him".

"I think he's morally unfit to be president", Comey said, in his first televised interview since being fired in May previous year.

"Impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly", he said. "I was dreading it", Comey said, noting he'd be "an unhappy F.B.I. director, but in a way proud of the organization and in my role in trying to protect it".

"Our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country", Comey told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. Among GOP voters, there appears to be little agreement with Comey's contention that Trump's moral failings make him unqualified to be president.

"Comey said Trump is 'morally unfit" to be president as the president does, in his mind, does not share common ground with most Americans on how he views various issues.

He talked about his first meeting with President-elect Donald Trump in January 2017 - noting the elaborately coiffed hair, which Mr Comey says "looks to be all his". But Comey, an appointee of Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, told him his loyalty is supposed to be to the American people and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Comey, who was unceremoniously fired by the U.S. president in May a year ago, in a wide-ranging interview to ABC News also warned that if Trump ever tries to sack special counsel Robert Mueller, then it would be his "most serious attack yet on the rule of law" and causing "tremendous damage" to the country's institutions. "I don't know. These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible". "His memos are self serving and FAKE!" he said.

The E! insider claims, " Bella never really lost feeling for Abel and had hope they would eventually get back together. She loves hanging out with Abel and they always have fun together and is very hopeful of their future relationship".

Speaking on Sunday's "Reliable Sources" on CNN, former presidential adviser David Gergen said that Comey "can be a showboat". Many liberals blame Comey for Hillary Clinton's lose during the 2016 election due to him reopening the email investigation just two weeks before Election Day.

Trump's tweets included numerous allegations that are unproven and unverified.

A number of Trump supporters - like Scott Presler - defended the president, thanking him for firing Mr Comey.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, tweeted early Friday that Comey "has no credibility". At the time, Comey was leading the investigation into Russian election meddling and whether or not the Trump campaign had been in cahoots with the Kremlin. "It's possible, but I don't know".

"He is morally unfit to be president", he added.

But that wasn't Trump's only complaint over a book that appeared to agitate him and those in the White House last week after members of the media obtained unreleased copies of the book.

"There's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice", Comey said. "It would depend and- and I'm just a witness in this case, not the investigator or prosecutor, it would depend upon other things that reflected on his intent".

In a Quinnipiac University poll published last month, 84 percent of Republicans approved of Trump's job performance, and only 31 percent said he is not a good role model for children.
