More than the author of ‘Fire and fury’ had James Comey to be an interesting voice on the functioning of Donald Trump. But the former FBI director lets his sense of honor with him at the get go.

Tomorrow the book A higher loyalty. Therein lays James Comey why he in may of last year was dismissed as head of the FBI. Officially had to Comey to leave because he the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mailschandaal had not performed. But according to the former head of the FBI, was the real reason the investigation into the possible collusion of the Trump campaign with the Russians.

He book outlines a devastating picture of the way in which Trump his work as the president does. In itself, this book is much more important than Fire and fury, in which journalist Michael Wolff, the operation of the White House under Trump fileerde. Wolff had direct access to the inner circle of the president, but the way he’s all chronicled, cried especially a lot of questions. What was true and what was exaggerated? In addition, supported Wolff very much on what Steve Over him to whisper.

‘Mafia boss and liar”

Comey, in contrast, drew from his own experiences as a highest police officer of the America. In addition, the reputation of an unimpeachable man. No one has reason to doubt the veracity of his memoirs.

But Comey is also a very stubborn and eerzuchtig man, and he feels very unfairly treated by Trump. His resentment about his according completely unjustified dismissal is so great that those with him to the get seems to go. Last week was The Washington Post the book is already read and the passages that look like stolen were, were especially wrokkige side. Trump was dismissed as “mob boss, and liar”. Moreover, he was obsessed with the (false) allegations that he golden showers would have been with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow. He remained there but about doorzeuren, according to Comey.

Video of Trump

Sunday was that view reinforced by the interview that Comey gave to ABC. Therein he called Trump ‘morally unfit’ to be president of the US. ‘A person who has the women talk and addresses them as pieces of meat, which is constantly lying about big and small things, and insists that the American population believes him, that person on moral grounds is not suitable.’

He also came back on the prostitutes in Moscow. He does not rule out that Russia is in possession of incriminating material about Trump. The Russians would video of Trump with prostitutes. “I think it’s possible, I don’t know,” said Comey. “These are the words which I have never thought that I would say about a president of the United States, but it is possible.”

America-kenner, Bart Kerremans (KU Leuven) will remain with a bad feeling behind. ‘I wonder indeed whether Comey not to overshooting. He is the ideal man to have a proper picture of how things are going in the White House Trump. In the book he does to self-criticism. He admits that he is stubborn and a big ego. That provided credibility. But the way in which he yesterday uithaalde to the president does his credibility no virtue. It gives Trump only ammunition to get him put away as a frustrated man.”

A slijmbal, Trump himself

Kerremans doubts that the book the president is in danger can bring. “What he was really in danger can bring to any obstruction of justice – is already known. There, he adds not much to it. On the contrary, he gives his critics only ammunition to get him put away as a man with a personal mission. He wants Trump to take, but in a not objective way.”

‘Look, the popularity of Trump is not so great, but his following is loyal, and with this kind of attack, the man will have his supporters but stretched feel in their belief.’

Trump himself said in a tweet to know what he think of: Comey is a slijmbal and a weakling. “He will go down in history as the weakest FBI director in history.’
