"I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out", Comey added.
Fired by Trump in May, Comey has launched this week the media tour for his new book, A Higher Loyalty, with excerpts and quotes scattered across news outlets.

The Republican National Committee plans an aggressive response to an upcoming memoir by fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.
At the July 5, 2017, press conference, with a presidential election just months away, Comey gave a lengthy statement criticizing Clinton but ultimately explaining the FBI's reasoning for not recommending charges.

Elsewhere in the book, Comey writes that Trump asked him emphatically to investigate and prove to be false the infamous "pee tape" section of the still-unverified "Steele Dossier" that involved Trump allegedly ordering Russian prostitutes to urinate on each other.
"Certainly not consciously, but I would be a fool to say it couldn't have had an impact on me", he wrote of the assumption, according to ABC News.
"Hindsight is always helpful, and if I had to do it over again, I would do some things differently", he writes. Comey wrote: "More important, I would have tried to find a better way to describe Secretary Clinton's conduct".
