Stephanopoulos interviews James Comey on his new book concerning Trump



James Comey gave a special interview on ABC 20-20 tonight at 10 PM with George Stephanopoulos. Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.” 

Comey says that Trump’s leadership culture resembles that of a mob boss, even if he hasn’t followed through with any personalized violence.


Comey was particularly concerned about the 1:1 dinner and Trump's expectation of "loyalty". Comey describes it as a "shakedown".  

Comey says that he released the letter on Hillary Clinton’s emails appearing on a laptop connected to Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandals. (on Oct 28, 2016) because he feared if he withheld them, and Clinton won (which he expected) he would appear to have withheld possibly pertinent information out of political considerations, and the FBI must remain non-political.
  
At the end of the hour Comey said that he views Trump as morally unfit for the presidency.
