Comey even describes Trump as a mob boss.running the oval office like a Godfather! "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". "Again, very unusual", Comey wrote.

"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe", Trump began.

Comey told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an interview with 20/20to be aired Sunday evening that his decision to publicly announce the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clinton's emails just days before the election was likely influenced by the fact that he thought she would win.

Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were untrue, Comey told ABC.

Comey said he cautioned Trump against ordering an investigation into a salacious intelligence dossier alleging an 2013 encounter involving prostitutes in Moscow.

The White House has denied that Trump ever encouraged Comey to end an investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, an encounter that the fired FBI director memorialized in private notes that he later described to Congress. Trump has also accused Comey of leaking information by authorizing a friend to share with journalists details of the discussion about Flynn. I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.

"Certainly not consciously, but I would be a fool to say it couldn't have had an impact on me".

Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty", will be released on Tuesday, although multiple news outlets, including CBS News, have obtained copies of the book ahead of time. The interview kicks off a media blitz by Comey to promote the release of his book.

The renewed attacks by Trump came as ABC News was set to air an interview using Comey at 10 p.m. EDT on Sunday (0200 GMT Monday) in which he discusses his book, " "A greater Loyalty.

The president's tweet about Comey and Loretta E. Lynch appears to reference a part of the book in which Comey says the then-attorney general was conflicted on the Clinton investigation because of unspecified classified information that he said he was aware of - and that Lynch wanted him to call the probe a "matter". " Trump composed one of 5 Twitter articles aimed at the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief". Mr. Trump's early-morning missives slammed the ex-director as a "slimeball", while simultaneously casting Comey as someone he "hardly knew".

The Washington Post has a thorough rundown of the many mistruths and unproven assertions Trump packed in to just seven fewer-than-280-character bursts.
