The interviews are Comey's first public comments since he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June, when he accused Trump of firing him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. Comey, fired by Trump in May 2017, says the president has no sense of what is right and wrong.
Top White House aides are pushing back on a new book from former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey that depicts President Donald Trump as unethical and "untethered to the truth".
House Republicans have repeatedly threatened to hold Justice Department officials in contempt as they have sought more than a million pages in documents related to Democrat Hillary Clinton and the beginning of the department's Russian Federation investigation.
Trump led the charge himself on Friday, tweeting so far unsubstantiated claims that Comey "leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted", and that he "lied to Congress under OATH". In the book to be released officially next Tuesday, Comey, whom Trump fired in May 2017, says the USA president lives in "a cocoon of alternative reality" that he tried to pull others around him into, according to The Washington Post.
Offering an overall assessment of Trump, Comey writes that "this president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", according to news reports about the book.
"It was my great honor to fire James Comey", Trump tweeted.
"President-elect Trump's first question was to confirm that it had no impact on the election", Comey told Stephanopoulos in an hours-long interview taped earlier, portions of which aired on GMA. Trump has denied any collusion. He also accused Comey of lying to Congress, apparently referring to Comey's Senate testimony last June, when he said he needed to get his account of his conversations with Trump in the public sphere in the hope it might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.
Details of Comey's book are leaking out as he prepares for a full-scale media tour next week.

"I started to tell him the allegation was he was involved with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow in 2013, during a visit for the Miss Universe Pageant".
Trump denied the allegations and said he might want the FBI to investigate allegations in the dossier to prove they were not true, Comey told ABC. Comey said Trump asked him to "prove that it didn't happen", and said it would be "terrible" if his wife Melania Trump believed the claim.
Comey called the whole Pee Tape interaction "really weird", describing it as an "out of body experience".

Before Trump and Comey met alone, USA intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and his advisers on Russia's election meddling.

He interrupted defensively and said 'Do I look like a guy who needs hookers?' " Comey said.
