Colbert, James Comey Talk What It's Like "Working for a Mob Boss"

James Comey visited Stephen Colbert’s show on Tuesday

"I don't know. These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", he said. "If we lose tethering of our leaders to that truth, what are we?" "Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!", Trump wrote on Twitter.

When Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee a year ago, he said that he did not know if Trump obstructed justice, adding, "that's Bob Mueller's job to sort that out". He offered his version of events, detailing the days right after Trump took office.

Comey answered "possibly" when asked in an ABC News interview whether the president was attempting to obstruct justice when he asked Comey to end an FBI investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. I've been gone for a year.

He also said: "People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values". "I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice". He said he worries people will become "numb" to Trump's remarks and tweets.

But I don't think it's going to have the kind of effect Comey perhaps imagined it would.

The Republican Party set up a website to attack the book, branding him "Lyin' Comey".

Why Do YOU Think de Nysschen Is Out At Cadillac?
Sales declined 8 percent past year and dropped another 4.6 percent through March, leading to his ousting as Cadillac president. One of de Nysschen's strategies was to raise prices on Cadillac models to maintain a more high-end clientele.

Comey also said, "I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia". "Lot more flexibility there", Comey said, adding that "they're still required to tell the truth". There is no indication Comey is under investigation for doing either.

"3 presidents are in my book: 2 help illustrate the values at the heart of ethical leadership; 1 serves as a counterpoint". In his memoir, fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey compares President Trump to a Mafia boss - "untethered to the truth", and demanding unquestioning loyalty. "Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers", Trump tweeted.

Trump has denied asking Comey to stop investigating Flynn and insisted he never asked for loyalty. "We're just another player.in the tribal battle", Comey said. "Even if you think they're wrong, then look at how we made those decisions and why".

The probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians during the 2016 presidential race, now led by independent special prosecutor Robert Mueller, increasingly menaces Trump's inner circle.

During the broadcast, ABC reporter George Stephanopoulos asked, "Do you think the Russians have something on Donald Trump?". "I just think they've lost their way and I can't be associated with it".

Sanders carried on a war of words between Trump and Comey as the president flew to Florida. He is now cooperating with the Mueller investigation.
