Comey: Assumption of Clinton victory factored into email probe announcement

Former FBI director James Comey says in a new book that President Donald Trump rem

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty", the president asserted after a brief pause to discuss Syria. No one is above that rule-of-law system.

In a subsequent exchange, Ryan reiterated his view that special counsel Robert Mueller III ought to be left to complete his investigation into the Trump orbit.

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the election and Trump has denied any collusion or improper activity. Mr Trump said on Twitter early Sunday (Apr 15), one of five Comey-related tweets of the morning.

The president repeated his belief that Comey deserved to be fired and expressed confidence the American public "would see through his lies" and realize Comey was part of a "deep state" effort to undermine the administration.

The book, coming nearly a year after Comey was sacked by the President, contains details of his interactions with Trump, exchanges that Comey says revealed to him a President who is a "congenital liar and unethical leader, devoid of human emotion and driven by personal ego...unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values".

Reuters and other news outlets have got copies of Comey's publication previous to its official launch this past week. While Comey does not outline the details of the information - and says he didn't see indications of Lynch inappropriately influencing the investigation - he says it anxious him that the material could be used to attack the integrity of the probe and the FBI's independence.

Barclay Dahlstrom, an instructor at the university, described her as a "bright student with a wonderful time and a kind heart". Two remain in critical condition. "We were the first ones there and the last ones to leave", he said.

Democrats, on the other hand, have accused Comey of politicizing the investigation, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.

In his tweets Sunday, Trump said "big questions" aren't answered in Comey's book, and repeats accusations about the FBI's impartiality under Comey. The dossier was a 35-page document containing raw intelligence compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and was commissioned as opposition research during the 2016 elections.

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC. "I said it was up to him".

Trump has denied having asked Comey for his loyalty. "Really weird. It was nearly an out of body experience for me". The interview will air Sunday night on ABC. "I'm about to meet with a person who doesn't know me, who has just been elected the president of the United States. and I'm about to talk to him about allegations that he was involved with prostitutes in Moscow and that the Russians taped it and have leverage over him". "It's possible, but I don't know".

At a time when his standing in the West Wing is reportedly tenuous, Chief of Staff John Kelly makes a cameo in Comey's memoir that might not go over so well with his boss.
