White House: One of Trump's greatest achievements will be 'firing Comey'

A MAY 3 2017 FILE

"And I think that's quite the problem".

"This is nothing more than a poorly executed PR stunt by Comey" in an effort "to desperately rehabilitate his tattered reputation and enrich his own bank account by peddling a book that belongs in the bargain bin of the fiction section instead of being remembered as a dedicated servant in pursuit of justice like so many of his other colleagues at the FBI", Sanders said in what appeared to be a prepared response.

Meetings with Trump gave Comey "flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob", he writes.

The White House's top spokeswoman blasted former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyGOP unveils mock cover of Comey book with "ego" attack NY Daily News cover hits Trump over Comey book revelations Geraldo Rivera: Comey is the reason Trump is president MORE as a "disgraced partisan hack" on Friday as the administration seeks to discredit allegations he's made in a new book.

And White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway said Comey "has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntled ex-employee".

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was sacked last month, days before his retirement, following an internal review that accused him of being untruthful about his role in the leaking of damaging information on the Clinton email investigation.

In a Friday tweet, Trump claimed without evidence that "McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!"

Trump is reacting to Comey's new book, which compares the president to an unethical mob boss who demands loyalty and twists facts to serve his objective.

President Donald Trump says former FBI Director James Comey is an "untruthful slime ball" who should be prosecuted for leaking classified information.

Spitting the dummy all over Twitter, the president ranted that the former head G-man is "a weak and untruthful slime ball" who was "a bad director of the FBI". His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst "botch jobs" of history.

News organizations including AFP obtained copies of the manuscript, in which Comey portrays Trump as an egomaniac - "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values".

Comey acknowledged in congressional testimony previous year that after he was sacked he helped leak his personal, but unclassified, memos of his conversations with Trump to a reporter. He describes Trump as fixated in the early days of his administration on having the Federal Bureau of Investigation debunk salacious rumours he insisted were untrue but could distress his wife.

Later in the briefing, Sanders returned to the subject of Comey, offering several examples in which she said Comey lied, including details pertaining to the Clinton investigation, the Russian Federation probe and his leaking of memos describing his interactions with Trump.
