On Wednesday, he participates in a drum circle with the ladies of The View.

Trump provided no evidence of a crime and Comey has not been accused of wrongdoing by legal authorities. "He looked a little shaky", she offered on ABC's "Good Morning America".

Trump called Comey an "untruthful slime ball" and said it was his "great honor" to fire the veteran Justice Department prosecutor.

What is clear after Comey's sit-down with George Stephanopoulos is that the former top cop's disdain for Trump is rooted in something more visceral than suspicion of a crime or a low IQ.

Comey also reflected on the controversy over Hillary Clinton's personal email account. He copped a plea and is now cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has bigger fish to fry.

Opponents of the President have suggested Mr Comey was dismissed because he was leading the investigation into alleged links between Mr Trump's campaign team and Russian Federation.

Conservatives, on the other hand, lashed out over his interaction with Trump, with the president tweeting out on April 16.

"I think he's morally unfit to be president", Comey told ABC.

"But given what I know now, maybe it would've been better to give a more explicit- say, "Sir, I can't promise you loyalty". The former national security adviser has since pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is now cooperating with the special counsel.

In both the interview and the book, Comey - served as Federal Bureau of Investigation director from 2013 until Trump fired him in May - describes the president as being "morally unfit" to hold office.

What Michelson found telling was Comey saying that the public is duty bound to vote Mr. Trump out of office, and that he doesn't favor impeachment because that would just let the American people off the hook.

On the other hand, Odisha DGP RP Sharma said he was informed about the matter by his Gujarat counterpart yesterday over phone. The body was found on April 6 at a cricket ground in Surat's Bhestan area, but the girl has not been identified yet.

The assertion that Trump demanded loyalty was "another of his many lies", Trump tweeted.

He also appeared to cite Comey's testimony before Congress previous year, in which he told Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican of Iowa, that he had never been an anonymous source to the press nor had he authorized someone else to do the same. Lindsey Graham (R- S.C.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) who found transcripts in August showing that Comey had drafted a statement rejecting charges be filed against Clinton, about two months before Clinton ever spoke with FBI investigators.

Trump and his aides have countered Comey's media blitz by attacking his handling of the probe into Clinton's emails. "They blame him for her loss".

Comey's book, which leaked out last week ahead of its official release Tuesday, takes on the president who fired him in May 2017 over the troubling Russian Federation election meddling investigation, a probe that poses a deep threat to Trump's 15-month-old presidency.

In a clip released Sunday, Comey details how he felt telling Congress the Federal Bureau of Investigation was reviewing additional Clinton emails just days before the election.

In true Trump fashion, the president punched back hard on Twitter unleashing a rare double tweet.calling Comey "a weak and untruthful slime ball".

Comey's disclosure shortly before the election that the FBI had reopened its investigation into her email use enraged Democrats. She asserted that Comey has "proven to be dishonest". She also said that Comey never raised any concerns with her regarding the email investigation.

And once the dust settles in this high stakes poker game, you've gotta wonder who will be holding the Trump card? When Stephanopoulos asked the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director if Trump should be impeached, Comey said, "I hope not, because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook - people in this country need to stand up, go to the voting booth, and vote their values".

He later added that Trump may have committed obstruction of justice by repeatedly pressing him to drop his inquiry into the former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Comey was sacked by Trump last May. "I think he's morally unfit to be president", he added.

"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said. He added: "But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and independents treasure". "That is the core of this country".
