New criticism of Trump unleashed from the dismissed director.
Former FBI director James Comey says in a new book that President Donald Trumpreminded him of a mafia boss who demanded absolute loyalty, saw the entire world against him, and lied about everything.
According to excerpts of the book leaked by U.NNS.In the media on Thursday, Trump was also haunted by the existence of a video in which Russian prostitutes allegedly hired by Trump urinated on a bed in a Moscow hotel room.
In the book to be officially released next Tuesday, Comey, whom Trump fired in May 2017, says the United States.NNS. president lives in "a cocoon of alternative reality" that he tried to pull others around him into, according to The Washington Post.
Meetings with Trump gave Comey "a flashback of my previous career as a prosecutor against the Mob," he wrote.
“The silent circle of consent.The boss is in complete control.Oaths of allegiance.The worldview between us and them.Lies about all things, large and small, serve to some sort of loyalty rule that puts the organization above ethics and above the truth."
According to the New York Post, Comey says Trump was obsessed with the "pee tape", the existence of which was first reported by a former British intelligence agent, who researched alleged links between Trump's campaign and Russia.
Trump asked Comey to investigate 'what he calls 'what he calls' golden rains'", Mr. Comey wrote, saying that Trump is determined to prove to his wife Melania that it doesn't exist.
"He just rolled around, unconcerned, explaining why it couldn't be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie."
The book, entitled "A higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership," has sparked worries through the White House and Republican establishment over the kind of damage it might do to the Trump presidency.
Last year, Comey revealed that Trump had pressured him to drop the investigation into Mike Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, and also asked Comey to promise his loyalty.
Trump fired Comey on May 9, complaining about the ongoing investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
That dismissal led to the appointment of a special prosecutor, who continues to investigate the matter as well as possible obstruction of justice and has brought 19 indictments to date, including first-line lieutenants. Trump's head.
Comey says in the book that Trump has no sense of what is right and what is not.
"This president has no morals and is not attached to truth and institutional values," he wrote, according to The New York Times.
"His leadership is transactional, ego-driven, and about personal loyalty."
