Donald Trump is unethical and untethered to truth, says ex-FBI director
James Comey depicts the US president as a mafia-like boss in a new book.
Former FBI director James Comey describes President Donald Trump as “unethical” and “untethered to truth” in a new book.
He calls Mr Trump’s leadership of the country “ego driven and about personal loyalty”.
Mr Comey’s comments come in the book in which he casts Mr Trump as a mafia boss-like figure who sought to blur the line between law enforcement and politics and tried to pressure him regarding the investigation into Russian election interference.
The book provides a first-hand account of several moments under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team probing possible obstruction of justice by Mr Trump.
The book is sure to ignite a backlash from Mr Trump, who has previously attacked Mr Comey as a “showboat” and a “liar”.
It is to be released next week.
