Trump's false claims to Comey about Moscow stay could aid Robert Mueller

When an audience member asked Comey about connections between President Trump and Russia, Comey said, "I was very struck that he was reluctant to criticize [Putin] in private".

There's been a lot of heated remarks between Comey and President Donald Trump since last May, when Comey was sacked.

Foster was among 640 people who won a lottery to watch CNN's Anderson Cooper host a televised town hall with Comey at Phi Beta Kappa Hall.

Student Zachary Smith asked Comey if he thinks Trump has the mental capacity to lead the country.

Saying 2018 is "the year of the boomerang", Hannity said it's time for "the disgraced former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to answer for his deliberate, improper and potentially criminal actions".

"I think of a leak as an unauthorized disclosure of classified information", Comey said.

Describing his decision as the best of two bad choices, former FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that informing the public about the status of the Hillary Clinton investigation was better than the "catastrophic" option of keeping it secret ahead of the 2016 election.

He added, "What I hope they'll do is ask themselves, Republicans, 'so what will I tell my grandchildren when they ask me, x so what did you do?"

While the Justice Department continues to review Comey's memos, in his new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", Comey said his reason for sharing the memos was to shed light on the president's actions as possible obstruction of justice in regards to the Michael Flynn investigation taking place at the time. "I'm trying to be outside of politics so intentionally tried not to follow it a lot".

He called the idea of a concerted deep state effort "nonsense".

"I don't have a nickname for him. We should root for our President - that also doesn't mean we should fail to hold him accountable - especially when he threatens our core values".

He also said he didn't believe that Trump was "morally fit" to be president, a line he has repeated a number of times while appearing in the media. And he justifies his focus on the President's character is because it contains the roots of what he refers to a "forest fire" presidency that endangers American institutions.

Former FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that his own experience in college joining with others to bully a classmate helped shape the person he is today.

"There was a boy that the group found irritating, and I participated in picking on him", Comey said. According to the New York Post, Flatiron only ordered 850,000 copies for the book's release. "Some things I did". Some things I just laughed at.
