Comey offered a blunt assessment of a conversation with Trump on February 14, 2017, during which Comey maintains the president said of an investigation the FBI was conducting into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, "I hope you can let it go".
"Values matter. This President does not reflect the values of this country", he said of Donald Trump.
Throughout the interview, Comey stressed the importance of telling the truth, a theme in his book. "In an even more explosive comment, Comey said it would be less than honest to rule out the possibility that Trump had been compromised by one of the United States" primary foreign adversaries.
Trump's mention on Monday of "Crooked Hillary"-his long-preferred sobriquet for Hillary Clinton-is no doubt a reference to the debate swirling around Comey's depiction in his book of how he handled the investigation into Clinton's email server".
"It is stunning and I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's just - it's the truth", he said, but added, "It always struck me and still strikes me as unlikely".
He talked about his first meeting with President-elect Donald Trump in January 2017 - noting the elaborately coiffed hair, which Mr Comey says "looks to be all his".

Given how Comey holds himself out as a paragon of ethical leadership - his book is titled "A Higher Loyalty" - it seemed incongruous to hear him mock Trump's hairstyle and facial coloring.
The interview, to coincide with the release of Mr Comey's memoir, did provide plenty to entertain. "That she's going to be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out".
"I think it's possible".
"I don't remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been", Comey told Stephanopoulos.
After Clinton's stunning defeat, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief became a kind of an anti-hero for many Democrats, who blamed him for their candidate's underperformance. Lindsey Graham, R-SC said Comey drafted a statement exonerating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for running her government emails through a private email server before completing the investigation.
So partly for that reason, he said, he made a decision to announce on his own his recommendation that no charges be filed in the Clinton case.
Comey, who was unceremoniously fired by the USA president in May a year ago, in a wide-ranging interview to ABC News also warned that if Trump ever tries to sack special counsel Robert Mueller, then it would be his "most serious attack yet on the rule of law" and causing "tremendous damage" to the country's institutions.
"In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job".
