WASHINGTON-President Donald Trump continued his attacks on James Comey on Sunday morning, accusing the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation of telling lies in a "badly reviewed" book.

"I don't know the guy", he added. Democrats have said the firing amounted to an attempt to impede investigations into Mr. Trump's campaign and business associates, and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The intense scrutiny over the meeting prompted Lynch to say she would accept whatever outcome Comey recommended as a result of the probe.

Asked whether Comey is someone he would describe as a slime ball - a term Trump has used twice in tweets this week - Ryan said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press that "I don't speak like that". "Really weird. It was nearly an out of body experience for me".

"And I have every confidence that Jim Comey accurately copied, collected, recounted what exactly went on during those discussions", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said.

In an interview broadcast on Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America", Comey discussed his initial encounters a year ago with the new president.

While a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that Comey is better liked and trusted than Trump, that public perception of the two men actually hasn't changed since last May, when Trump fired Comey.

Asked if he would bring legislation to the floor protecting special counsel Robert Mueller, Mr. Ryan said, "I don't think it's necessary".

In announcing the strikes, Trump directly blamed Russian Federation for enabling the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons. Putin spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday and urged him to do nothing to destabilise Syria .

Comey even describes Trump as a mob boss.running the oval office like a Godfather!

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, setting off a scramble at the Justice Department that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Comey's book is a bestseller on Amazon.com, so many people will read it for themselves. "He mentioned a number of women, and seemed to have memorized their allegations", Comey writes. Ryan said, however, he had met Comey only a few times.

The president insisted Comey is a "leaker and a liar" and called for him to be prosecuted for leaking "classified" information.

"James Comey, a man of integrity?"

Just a week after Comey's firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller, himself a former FBI director, to oversee an investigation of the president about possible connections to Russian Federation and any related issues such as obstruction of justice.

The interview, conducted by George Stephanopoulos, took place in Comey's home in Virginia last Monday, according to Axios. In a promo for the interview, Stephanopoulos asks Comey: "How unusual is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss?".
