Trump goes on Twitter rant against Comey ahead of explosive interview
James Comey: AG did not conduct fair investigation into Hillary Clinton's email
16 April, 2018, 02:14
On Sunday morning, Trump sent a series of angry, over-the-top tweets (even for Trump) attacking Comey, whose book A Higher Loyalty, a memoir that includes explosive details about the runup to his firing as Federal Bureau of Investigation director by Trump, will be released on April 17.
After his election win over Hillary Clinton in November 2016, it didn't take long before questions were raised as to what role Donald Trump played in Russia's hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
Trump also tweeted that Comey's mishandling of the Clinton email probe deserves "jail" time and called him a "slimeball".
The phrase is associated with President George W. Bush, who used it in 2003 during the Iraq war but which dogged him for the rest of his presidency.
"As far as I know".
Comey said he was "operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I'm sure that it was a factor".

US Vice President expects NAFTA deal within weeks

Trump recently accused Comey of leaking classified information, saying he should be prosecuted for lying to Congress under oath.
Trump called Comey an "untruthful slime ball" in a tweet and wrote that "it was my great honor to fire" him. But, she said, "if they feel there was any wrongdoing, they should certainly look into that just as they do on a number of other topics". Trump fired Comey in May, leading to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to announce the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. Trump also sought to rebut Comey's claim that he had demanded personal loyalty, insisting in a tweet that "I hardly even knew this guy".
Mr. Comey's book describes Mr. Trump as "unethical, and untethered to truth" and compared Mr. Trump to a Mafia boss.
"I had assumed from media polling that Hillary Clinton was going to win", he wrote, according to ABC News.
Against that backdrop, Comey's reemergence is a reminder that the resistance to Trump was not limited to noisy street marches.
