Ex-FBI deputy director 'disappointed' in Comey comments

Former FBI Director James Comey is currently on a book tour including a stop Wednesday at The View. On Capitol Hill House Judiciary Republicans plan to subpoena the Justice Department in order to get copies of Comey's memos on his interactions with Pres

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey accused James Comey of exonerating 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after former President Barack Obama warned the then-FBI director to "let her off" the hook.

It's not clear what in the memos led the president to reach the conclusion.

The Comey saga gained momentum Thursday with the release of his memos on meetings with Trump.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) is now investigating Comey's leaks of classified information, as well as his controversial handling of the Clinton email investigation in which he took the unorthodox step to announce that that he recommended no criminal prosecution despite having initially found her guilty of gross negligence in handling classified material, a criminal offense; normally the FBI investigates, while the determination of whether to prosecute is a decision reserved to the DOJ.

Reince Priebus asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation if it was keeping tabs on Flynn.

So what is in the memos?

Comey, who has been making the rounds to promote his scathing tell-all, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", told the BBC that Americans have grown "numb" to the commander-in-chief.

The memos, which were written before Comey was sacked in May, allege that Trump called the Russian Federation investigation a "cloud" over his administration, and that the president asked what Comey "could do to lift the cloud". Mr Trump strongly denies Mr Comey's account.

He took to twitter late Friday, saying Comey illegally leaked classified memos to the press, in order to spark the special counsel's investigation. These are memos Comey wrote about his chats with Trump previous year.

Some analysts have complained that he personalized his observations of Trump: the white circles under the president's eyes from his suntan goggles, the fact that Trump never laughs and his odd responses to the Steele dossier's claim that he had two models urinate on each other in his Moscow hotel room for his pleasure.

The President of the United States can't wish them away; nor can the man once known as America's mayor.

How significant are the memos?

Details from some memos were made public in media accounts in the days after he was sacked. The request for loyalty over a private dinner.

Democrats took a different view of the memos, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., saying the memos were more evidence of Trump's "contempt for the rule of law".

The President has called the special counsel's probe a "witch hunt" as Mueller investigates whether Trump campaign associates colluded with Russian Federation and any instances of obstruction of justice in the process of the investigation.

It puts Comey down in the dirt in hand-to-hand combat with Trump.

"Apparently, as the president was toasting, he was explaining that she had been the first to call him after his inauguration".

In this book, Comey made a decision to play by Trump's rules and ends up looking slightly pathetic.

The Chicago appearance was the first stop on Comey's book tour outside of television guest slots and the publishing capital of New York City.
