Paul Ryan: Comey a Man of Integrity, 'As Far as I Know'

Donald Trump fired James Comey in May 2017 citing the FBI's behavior in investigating Democrat Hillary Clinton and its probe into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia

"I don't use words like that".

When Comey first brought up the dossier after an intelligence meeting, Trump reportedly interrupted Comey, "asking - rhetorically, I assumed - whether he seemed like a guy who needed the service of prostitutes", Comey writes.

- Comey admits he treated the election candidates differently.

Comey writes that Trump asked him to many times to ensure people knew that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not specifically investigating him.

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. In hindsight, he says he might have done some things differently.

Anticipating broad media attention for Comey as his book tour gets underway, Sanders scolded reporters in advance for preparing to "cover it endlessly, all day today, all day tomorrow, and my guess is every day next week with very little time given to the issues that people care about". The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview.

In a passage that has ruffled feathers in White House, Comey adds: "I paused and then chose to add something".

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele about Trump's ties to Russian Federation and included an allegation that involved prostitutes.

Self-critical at times, high-minded throughout, Comey holds himself to a superior standard. "And I remember thinking, 'How could your wife think there's a 1 per cent chance you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?' I'm a flawed human being, but there's literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true".

- Here's how Obama reacted, during a conversation about that notorious Moscow bed. The dossier also alleges close Trump campaign coordination with the Kremlin.

Greg Sargent is a political blogger for The Washington Post. "He raised and lowered both of his eyebrows with emphasis, and then looked away".

It is far from clear what effect Comey's book will have on public attitudes toward Mueller's work. It's not in the president's interest to do that. Rather, Trump focused on the public-relations component and how to spin the fact that Russians didn't affect the election outcome.

In the book, Mr Comey compares Mr Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty".

- He takes jabs at Trump's physical appearance. Comey details his conversations with Trump in the early weeks of 2017, noting how often Trump tried to isolate Comey one-on-one and elicit a pledge of loyalty. "Comey noted: "(They were) smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so", according to the Associated Press.

"I read in his posture and face a message that he would not be able to help me", Comey wrote. Following Clinton's loss, Democrats blamed Comey and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects. Her review, headlined "James Comey Has a Story to Tell". With each Stephanopoulos question, they cut back to Comey and the drama builds as we want to know what Comey's responses are going to be.
