Despite this, Comey told Stephanopoulos that he does not regret sending the letter.
Lashing out in a series of tweets before the interview was aired, the President described Mr Comey as a slimeball and the WORST FBI director in history, by far. The firing ultimately led to the appointment of Robert Mueller to direct a special counsel inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election and potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
Comey also said he believed that Trump was "morally unfit" to be president and that he treated women like "pieces of meat".
'And that's not a policy statement. "I don't care what your views are on guns or immigration or taxes".
The network has been promoting the interview with enticing bits of information, including Stephanopoulos revealing that Comey compares Trump to a "mob boss." "I didn't actually think he came across as particularly genuine", she said.
Trump tweeted "James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR".
'The most important being truth. To wit: in a particularly convoluted corner of the president's brain, Comey intervened in the final days of the 2016 election on behalf of Hillary Clinton - not against her - because he wanted a job from her. "Is Donald Trump unfit to be president?"

Kenney said in recent days the federal government has said everything's on the table to ensure construction, yet we aren't getting closer to getting this critical project built.
"I think it's possible".
He also answered "possibly" when asked if the president was attempting to obstruct justice when he cleared the Oval Office of other officials last February before encouraging him to close the investigation into Flynn, who by that point was suspected of lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts.
He expounded, "I worry that the norms at the center of this country - we can fight as Americans about guns, or taxes or immigration, and we always have, but what we have in common is a set of norms - most importantly, the truth".
"I find it hard to believe that Bill Clinton would've tried to obstruct justice by walking across the tarmac in front of.in front of a bunch of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents up the. stairs and onto an Federal Bureau of Investigation plane", he said.
Still, he said it strikes him as unlikely but something that he can't say without high confidence.
"He had impressively coiffed hair.it looks to be all his", he said. "People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values".
This morning, The Atlantic's Natasha Bertrand pointed out a discrepancy between Comey's recollection of his conversation with Trump and reported testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee regarding that infamous night in Moscow.

The Senior Advocate then referred to what he said were past instances of allocation of cases. Justice Sikri continued that "all that we are saying is whether this is justiciable at all".
Comey said he urged Kelly to remain in the administration. I can not say that (Trump is not subject to Russian blackmail).
In the upcoming book, which will be published Tuesday, Comey characterizes Mr. Trump's leadership as "ego driven and about personal loyalty".
"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe", Trump said.
"I don't know what they talked about".
"I'm not going to try and help sell some books here", Ryan said.
This one wasn't so much unexpected as reassuring-Steele's revelations were so wild, and he's been attacked so much that it meant something to hear Comey stick up for him. The director had recorded notes of every encounter between him and the president. I would hope both camps will read this and, I hope, see a deeply flawed human surrounded by other flawed humans trying to make decisions with an eye, not on politics, but on those higher values.
