Former FBI Director James Comey calls President Trump 'morally unfit' for office

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".

Impeaching the president, Comey believes, would be a quick fix to a larger problem: "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", Comey said. "I think he's morally unfit to be President".

Allen noted that Comey repeated almost the same phrasing in a USA Today interview, in which he called Trump "someone who is able to see moral equivalence in Charlottesville or to speak and treat women like they're pieces of meat and to lie constantly". But he said that in Trump's case, he could not discount the possibility that the president had been compromised. "And the question is, how much stain is too much stain". He said Trump repeatedly asked about its unverified allegation that Russians had video footage of a 2013 encounter with prostitutes in Moscow. "It appears to me that what I know about the book is that he is sharing his inner monologue about his interactions with the president that he already has testified about".

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pushed back against Comey's criticism in the book that, early in the Clinton email inquiry, she had instructed him to refer to it as a "matter" rather than an "investigation".

"If he called you today saying he meant to quit, what would you tell him?"

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

"I felt like I was totally alone, that everybody hated me".

"I often hear people talk about it". Comey responded, "Possibly. It's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice". "I thought I'd given enough to put him on notice as to what the essence of the material was". According to those reports, Comey writes that Trump is "unethical and untethered to the truth" and compares his presidency to a "forest fire".

"When the room was clear, I did what I had promised the president and passed along his concerns about leaks and his expectation that we would be aggressive in pursuing them. So what kind of marriage to what kind of man does your wife think there's only a 99 percent chance you didn't do that?" said Comey. "It's possible, but I don't know".

"I don't think he's medically unfit to be president".

"Unless there are glaring inconsistencies in his testimony and what he told the special counsel and in his book, I don't see a problem", Cotter said.
