James Comey: I'm 'Embarrassed and Ashamed' by the Republican Party

James Comey

Comey was sacked in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether anyone close to the president colluded with Russian intelligence agents to influence the 2016 presidential election.

He'll be taking questions from the audience at Comey's alma mater, William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.

When the former Director was asked if he believed the President possesses the moral and mental capacities to effectively lead the armed forces, he said: "I don't believe he's morally fit to be president of the United States". Comey, fired by Trump a year ago, has likened the president to a crime boss who values personal loyalty over service to the country.

Comey argues that Trump does not make decisions on the basis of philosophical, religious or logical considerations, but simply to assuage the deficiencies of his own character and emotional makeup. He has given revealing interviews on every major news network, drawing angry tweets from President Trump, which in turn prompted more news coverage of the book.

But they might help him move more copies of the book "A Higher Loyalty".

Neither the White House nor Trump Organization immediately responded to requests for comment.




"Really? That's it?" Cooper said.

"If people have convinced themselves that, well, we'll trade it temporarily for a tax cut or a Supreme Court justice, as I say in the book, that's a fool's bargain, because those values are all you have".

"The challenge I found was that they wash over you like a wave and even if you disagree, the waves keep coming".

They say it was a great way to socialize and learn at the same time.

Comey added that he leaked the document as a private citizen, even though he wrote it while he was Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "Some things I did".

"I wanted to see James Comey's take on his own actions of the election cycle and see kind of his point of view, you hear most of other people's point of view on TV, Donald Trump himself on Twitter, so I wanted to hear it for his mouth", said Junior Aaron Stello. But Comey says he was sacked to disrupt the investigation he was leading into suspicions of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to influence the election.
