Trump attacks ex-FBI director Comey in early morning tweetstorm

At the heart of this lack of variation in polls over time is that the issue of Comey vs. Trump has become purely partisan, making it hard to get people to change opinions once they're locked into their political tribe.

In addition watching the interview on television, it can be streamed with a cable subscription or viewed on Hulu with a subscription. The president's tweets - which also targeted Loretta Lynch, the attorney general under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama - came hours before a lengthy interview with the ex-FBI head was to air on ABC Sunday night.

In his book, Comey, who graduated high school in Allendale, says that he thought the former secretary of state would defeat Trump, and that hiding the email news would have made her presidency "illegitimate." In an average of May polls from previous year, 12 percentage points more of Americans disapproved than approved of the decision to fire Comey. "I sat there thinking, Holy crap, they are trying to make each of us "amica nostra" - friend of ours". Ryan said, however, he had met Comey only a few times.

But the president returned to the subject repeatedly, Comey reports, asking him to "lift the cloud" and corroborate the presidential denials of various sexual accusations.

"I'd have a conniption if I knew one of my witnesses was going to be writing a book", said Nick Akerman, a former assistant USA attorney and Watergate prosecutor.

Trump denied that he asked him the question in an interview with Fox News.

Trump has denied any collusion, but the Russian Federation probe has been an open sore on his presidency.

He said it was Modi's love and affection for the state that he was leaving no stone unturned for the development of the state. He was seen taking pictures with the prime minister inside a coach in which he travelled.

Asked whether Mr. Comey is a man of integrity, Mr. Ryan responded, "As far as I know".

Trump wrote on Twitter Friday: "He is a weak and unethical slimeball who was, as time has proven, a awful Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

In a remarkable look back, Comey says he was deciding "in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president".

Trump took aim at one excerpt from the memoir, "A Higher Loyalty", that has circulated in the media in recent days, in which Comey admitted it was "possible" his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails was swayed by polls that showed she was likely to win the 2016 presidential election. In it, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty".

Dear James Comey: Grow up, you childish little man.

"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty", Trump tweeted. Trump said in another tweet Sunday, referring to former President Bill Clinton going uninvited onto Lynch's plane in Arizona and talking to her amid the investigations.
