But with his new book, which describes the USA president as a mercurial, congenital liar, Comey has plunged headfirst into Washington's noxious political pit and risked losing the moral authority that has long protected him. Trump said on Twitter.
Comeys explosive book, which is apparently highly critical of Trump, will hit the bookshelves next week. "No one is above that rule of law system". Comey also has drawn fire from the left for his treatment of the Hillary Clinton pre-election email scandal, so it will be interesting to see how his book is received by Democrats.
Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.
There are also details about Trump's attitude toward Russian Federation, and the president's apparent fixation on a story about a dossier with salacious allegations against the president.

Asked how freaky that meeting with Trump was, Comey said: "Very weird". Reuters has obtained a copy.
Comey describes President Donald Trump's obsession with uncorroborated intelligence suggesting that Russian Federation had compromising material on him - specifically including footage of him watching prostitutes urinate on each other in a Moscow hotel room in 2013, while Trump was in town for the Miss Universe pageant. During the segment, Comey said he didnt know whether to believe Trumps denial that he had spent time with prostitutes in Moscow before he became president.
Trump's tweets came just hours before Comey's first TV interview, with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, was set to air on Sunday evening. Moscow has repeatedly denied USA intelligence agencies' findings that it interfered in the campaign to try to tilt the November 2016 vote in Trump's favor.
Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC.

Asked how freaky that meeting with Trump was, Comey said: "Very weird". But I also think reasonable people might well have handled it different...

Comey takes care to mention that he brought with him the Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the time, a man named Robert Mueller.
Before Trump and Comey met alone, US intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and his advisers on Russia's election meddling.
