Trump morally unfit for office – Comey
EX-FBI DIRECTOR HITS OUT ON TV
FORMER FBI director James Comey has said it is possible that Russia may have compromising information on US president Donald Trump.
Mr Comey added that there is “some evidence of obstruction of justice” in the president’s actions, and that Mr Trump is “morally unfit” for office.
The ex-FBI chief’s comments in an ABC News interview are almost certain to escalate his war of words with the president.
Mr Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway accused Mr Comey of peddling a “revisionist version of history” and sinking into the “gutter” with petty comments about the size of Mr Trump’s hands and the length of his tie. “He looked a little shaky,” Ms Conway said of Mr Comey, on ABC’s Good Morning America. Hours before the interview was shown, the president, who sacked Mr Comey last year, unleashed a Twitter outburst that labelled him “slippery”, suggested he should be put in jail. Mr Comey’s remarks, coupled with the release of his forthcoming book, offer his version of events surrounding his sacking and investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email practices.
