What does James Comey's "A Higher Loyalty" mean in the big picture?

What does James Comey's

On the face of it then, Comey's book should pose quite a threat to the reputation of a President still embroiled in the Russian Federation investigation, and scandals involving women allegedly paid off to keep quiet about affairs. "But instead, what I'm talking about is that leadership culture constantly comes back to me when I think about my experience with the Trump administration", Comey said about comparing Trump to a mob boss.

Dan Kovalik, a human rights and labor lawyer, told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear that Comey's new book has made him "a hero of liberals in the United States". "I think he's morally unfit to be president", said Comey. He also suggested Comey should be imprisoned, tweeting, "how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail)".

While ABC aired one hour of its conversation with Comey, it had conducted a five-hour interview with him, a transcript of which was obtained by The New York Times. I don't think he's medically unfit to be president.

"We wake up in the morning and see the president of the United States is accusing people of crimes without evidence and pronouncing them guilty and saying they should be in jail", he said.

Almost 7 in 10 Americans support tougher US sanctions against Russian Federation, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll that also finds roughly half the public saying President Donald Trump has done "too little" to criticize Russian Federation for alleged violations of global law.

Bill: Hillary Clinton would have likely fired Comey if she had won. Hours before the interview aired, the president, who fired Comey a year ago, unleashed a Twitter outburst that labeled Comey "slippery", suggested he should be put in jail and branded him "the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

Trump expressed his dissatisfaction with those comments on Twitter.

Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's reaction was that Comey has "been proven to be dishonest", and has "such a lack of credibility". People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values'.

Comey also wrote that he wondered why Melania might think there was even a 1-percent chance the allegations were true, claiming there is "zero chance" his own wife would believe such a claim. In fact, Comey did as much as anyone to get Trump elected with three ethically dubious decisions: He publicly lambasted Hillary Clinton for her handling of her emails, despite his decision not to recommend criminal prosecution.

The book's imminent release - and the ABC News interview - prompted Mr Trump to hurl new insults at Mr Comey earlier on Sunday, challenging accusations made in the book, and insisting that he never pressed Mr Comey to be loyal to him.

Jennifer Palmieri, who served as Clinton's communications director, told CNN on Sunday that Comey worked "very clearly outside of the bounds of how the Federal Bureau of Investigation is supposed to operate", despite saying he was "always trying to act within the bounds of how the Federal Bureau of Investigation is supposed to operate". He sounded truthful when he testified under oath that Trump tried to extract a loyalty oath from him and asked him to go easy on disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn. Instead, they launched into a strategy session about how to "spin what we'd just told them" for the public, he writes.

Bill: Mr. Comey is a witness in the Russian Federation investigation.
