James Comey is hurting the FBI

Former FBI director James Comey told associates Donald Trump was

The thought of having dinner alone with Trump at the White House made Comey "deeply uncomfortable", he writes, because he feared that the president wanted to compromise the FBI's integrity and independence and was waging "an effort to establish a patronage relationship" with him. But, she said, "if they feel there was any wrongdoing, they should certainly look into that just as they do on a number of other topics".

The tweets were filled with unproven assertions.

"I hardly knew this guy", Trump lamented in another an hour later, denying Comey's claim that he'd demanded his loyalty.

"And I have every confidence that Jim Comey accurately copied, collected, recounted what exactly went on during those discussions", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said.

"These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", Comey told ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos.

The president said Comey "stupidly" handled a probe into Trump's 2016 election rival Hillary Clinton and how she used a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Other good men and women of character in positions of power must raise their voices, too. "In fact, though I didn't know for sure, I imagined the presidential suite of the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow was large enough for a germaphobe to be at a safe distance from the activity". And that's not a policy statement. Comey announced in July 2016 that he would not recommend charges against Clinton, but stated publicly that Clinton and her aides had been "extremely careless" in handling classified information.

Comey added that supporters of the president who admire his gumption and outsider mentality are "kidding themselves", as no amount of agenda-driven policy is worth a slip-back on basic principles.

The issue of straight-arrow truth-teller versus continual-liar should be kept at the center of the conflict.

Kelly "was very upset", Comey said.

Comey responded, "It is stunning and I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's just--it's the truth".

Neither the United States nor the international community has developed a sufficient policy and response to this catastrophe. "His 'memos' are self serving and FAKE!"

In the latter job he was, if anything, too forceful.

"All Too Human", by George Stephanopoulos.

And once the dust settles in this high stakes poker game, you've gotta wonder who will be holding the Trump card? Comey described being struck that the president and his staff never expressed any interest in Russian election-meddling and how to prevent it again.

"The audience could see my face change", Comey said. Clinton and her allies resented the move and said it hurt her chances to become president.

Trump fired him on May 9, 2017. And I know luxury.' He said he hadn't mistreated a long list of women, reviewing each case in detail, as he had in our earlier conversation.

"Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

"The loyalty oaths, the boss as the dominant center of everything, it's all about, 'How do you serve the boss, what's in the boss' interests?' It's the family, the family, the family, the family", he said.
