Fired FBI director's first interview airs tonight on WAAY 31

Comey breaks silence in exclusive ABC interview

Comey breaks silence in exclusive ABC interview

After a year's worth of anticipation, fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's first interview is set to air this Sunday night, and it's expected to be a bombshell.

The book details Comey's illustrious career at the FBI up until his May 9, 2017 firing by President Donald Trump - including juicy revelations from his conversations with the president about topics ranging from the Russian Federation investigation to the possible existence of a "pee tape".

Comey does not say he handed the presidency to Trump, but admits he believed at the time Clinton was going to win.

"This is nothing more than a poorly executed PR stunt by Comey to desperately rehabilitate his tattered reputation and enrich his own bank account by peddling a book that belongs in the bargain bin of the fiction section", she said. "That - that she's gonna be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected", Comey said. Comey's decision was praised by Trump at the time.

But Sunday the president did not hold back his criticism tweeting, "Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe".

"The guy knew exactly what he was doing".

But Comey maintains he does not think he could have handled it any better.

Sunday afternoon, Comey tweeted that his book "is about ethical leadership", that 3 presidents are in his book "2 help illustrate the values at the heart of ethical leadership, 1 serves as a counterpoint".
