James Comey's 'A Higher Loyalty': Book Review

James Comey's 'A Higher Loyalty': Book Review

In this way he has joined Trump - who tweeted that Comey was a "slimeball" - in the sandpit with all the other toddlers, and rather detracts from the impact of his other assertions. Trump administration officials have painted Comey as a disgruntled ex-employee looking to settle scores and an admitted leaker whose Congressional testimony had to be corrected nearly immediately.

"A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership" hits bookstore shelves on Tuesday.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway criticized Comey on Monday, accusing him of peddling a “revisionist version of history” and sinking into the “gutter” with petty comments about the size of Trumps hands and the length of his tie. He considered that "the most important thing" in a president is that he tell the truth and that Trump "is not qualified for that".

"I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice", Comey insisted.

Comey's comments in an ABC News interview broadcast Sunday were nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president.

"To me that kind of salacious commentary diminishes Jim Comey, raises more questions about his true desire here", Hosko continued.

Rogers said he also does not think Comey should have made the mistakes of pulling back on statements about 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, going back to them, and then coming back with more.

At the same time, Rogers thinks Comey took the bait, and he was thinking with emotions over the situation with Trump.

Lynch also says that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation.

Comey was sacked by the President previous year in the midst of the FBI's investigation into whether Trump's campaign associates colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

The president began assailing Comey even before the interview came out.

"I should've worked harder to find a way to convey that it's more than just the ordinary mistake, but it's not criminal behavior, and find different words to describe that", Comey said.

Even liberals who will never forgive Comey for his actions during the election don't think he's dishonest.

The Trump administration, with the support of the Republican National Committee, has mounted a campaign to discredit Comey amid the release of his book. He's a very smart man and a lawyer, ' said Comey, who went out of his way to gush about Obama in his new book, 'A Higher Loyalty'. In his book, Comey likens Trump to a dishonest, ego-driven mob boss and says he demanded the then Federal Bureau of Investigation chief's personal pledge of loyalty - a damning account that has infuriated the president at a moment of intensifying legal pressure on other fronts.

Mr Comey also defended his decision to publicly disclose the FBI's re-opening of its investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's handling of e-mail when she was secretary of state. "He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on", Comey said.

The Hollywood Reporter said the early ratings numbers for the "20/20" special show the Comey interview drew an average of 9.8 million viewers for ABC.

The president soon turned his focus to the Cohen raid, an aggressive move by prosecutors in the Southern District of NY, who were referred material by special counsel Robert Mueller III's team.

He added: "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out".
