In an interview with NPR's Morning Edition, firedFBI Director James Comey defended his controversial decisions during the 2016 campaign and asserted that the reputation of his agency - which operates under near daily siege from the president and his allies - "would be worse today had we not picked the least bad alternatives". "He is morally unfit to be president".
Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks it's possible the Russians have compromising information on President Donald Trump. That brings us to the different ways Trump's critics and defenders are talking about Comey right now. Ryan said, however, he had met Comey only a few times.
By the way, it's worth noting that Trump's critics have a much more nuanced and realistic view of Comey.
Comey responded "I don't know", adding that he's "struck by it". Flynn has since pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia's ambassador and is now cooperating with the Mueller investigation.
It's notable in some sense that one of America's former top law enforcement officials is willing to compare the sitting president to a mafia boss, something Comey also did during his interview broadcast Sunday night by ABC.
In it, Mr Comey wrote that Mr Trump, in a private meeting, pressed the then-FBI director for his loyalty.
Mueller has so far charged 19 people during his investigation, including Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and campaign aides Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos.
The media are generally treating Jim Comey as a truth-teller.

"Something else occurred to me about President Trump at that dinner that I found very instructive". Trump cited the memo in firing Comey, and Comey said he came to believe Rosenstein was "part of the family now".
Chacon is also concerned that Comey, by talking about issues involving Russian Federation and the Trump administration and election campaign, is opening himself up to a tough cross examination if he appears as a witness in any criminal proceedings arising from the investigations.
"I think it's possible".
"I'm not making fun of the president", Comey said. But - the honest answer is, it wouldn't change the way I think about it.
The former FBI director said he still would've sent the letter reopening the investigation into the emails before the 2016 election, even though Clinton and her team blamed it for her loss.
Comey told ABC he made what he thought was the appropriate decision and that a belief Clinton would win the vote for president was a factor.
"He's criticizing the President in a way that I don't feel like we've heard before", said Prof. And I didn't know exactly why she was doing that, but I decided in that moment that the whole world would miss the distinction between investigation and matter.
