Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and any potential ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.

Stephanopoulos pressed Comey on if he should have interjected and told Trump that was inappropriate, which Comey said was a fair criticism.

Comey, who ran the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly four years, portrays the president in his book as a liar, dumb and rude, and he compares elements of Trump's behavior to that of a Mafia boss.

However, he added: "I don't think he's medically unfit to be president". "Comey comes along and says, 'This reminds me of prosecuting the mob and essentially a mob boss that I'm having to deal with'".

On the controversy over his decision to disclose to the public shortly before the 2016 election that the FBI had reopened its investigation into candidate Clinton's email use, Comey said he did not remember "consciously thinking" about the election results. It was recorded last Monday at Comey's home in suburban Washington.

However, that Mr Comey considers it's even possible, is itself pretty remarkable.

Comey's comments in an ABC News interview that aired Sunday were nearly certain to escalate his war of words with the president and further erode a relationship marked by open hostility and name-calling. "My loyalty's supposed to be to the American people and to the institution", Mr Comey said in the interview.

Former FBI Director James Comey tweeted on Sunday that he wrote in his new book about two presidents who represent "ethical leadership" and one who does not. "Impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that".

Conway was referencing comments Comey made in the interview and in his new book that his decision to make that announcement in late October may have been swayed by his assumption that Clinton was on target to win the election.

Failor wasn't shy about her thoughts on President Trump, either.

"I find it hard to believe that Bill Clinton would've tried to obstruct justice by walking across the tarmac in front of.in front of a bunch of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents up the. stairs and onto an Federal Bureau of Investigation plane", he said. There is no indication he is under investigation for doing so. "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", he said.

In his book, Comey deferred to the Mueller investigation on the question of obstruction. I think he's morally unfit to be President.

Musa Majia, spokesman of the police in the state, said the command has deployed a "powerful team of operatives and detectives" to cordon the axis.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said the ABC interview reaffirms that Mr Comey's "higher loyalty is to himself".

Excerpts from Comey's book paint Trump as someone who is "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", according to ABC.

Still, despite all the Comey craziness, the president's approval ratings have been slowly ticking upward for weeks.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, tweeted early Friday that Comey "has no credibility". She asserted that Comey has "proven to be dishonest".
