After he was fired by him for allegedly mishandling the Hillary Clinton email investigation, James Comey didn’t make any secret about his dislike for Donald Trump.
Trump sacked FBI Director James Comey on May 9, 2017 – less than two months after Comey publicly proclaimed the agency was investigating ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign.
James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI.

Unfortunately, for the Democrats and anti-Trumpers, the former FBI Director James Comey was asked under oath if “Did the President, at any time, asked you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections? Comey’s answer was, “no”.
Facts aren’t going to stop Comey from grasping for straws, as he promotes his soon to be released tell-all book, where Comey attempts to create controversy by alleging that President Trump asked him to help prove to his wife, Melania, that the DNC funded phony dossier was nothing more than a document filled with lies.
James Comey’s tell-all book details his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation and private interactions he had with President Trump, a man he blasts as “untethered to truth,” according to multiple reports.
Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, is set to hit shelves on Tuesday but copies were obtained by several media outlets, including the Associated Press, The Washington Post and New York Times.
In one of the more salacious tidbits, the book alleges Trump asked Comey for an investigation of the alleged “golden shower” tape to reassure his wife that it was fake, according to a report by the New York Post.

NYP is reporting that President Trump wanted James Comey to investigate the infamous “pee tape” allegations — to reassure Melania that he hadn’t actually paid Russian hookers to urinate on a hotel bed, the former FBI chief claims in his upcoming book.
“He brought up what he called the ‘golden showers thing’ … adding that it bothered him if there was ‘even a one percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true,” Comey writes in “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” a copy of which was obtained by The Post.
“He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie. I said it was up to him.”
The conversation took place during the same private dinner on Jan. 27, 2017, where Comey has claimed the president demanded “loyalty” — and just days after the publication of an intelligence dossier alleging that the Kremlin had a tape of Trump paying prostitutes to perform the dirty deed on a bed once occupied by President Obama.
Comey says he warned Trump an investigation might “create a narrative that we were investigating him personally,” the former top G-man writes.
The president replied that he “might be right” — but kept asking him to consider the idea, and said he would as well, according to Comey.
Comey said he privately 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 what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn’t do that?” he writes in the book, which hits shelves April 17.
