Asked whether Comey is someone he would describe as a "slime ball" - a term Trump has used twice in tweets - Ryan said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that "I don't speak like that".
Mr Comey was asked if the President had obstructed justice by directing him to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser.
"Possibly", Comey responded. "I mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice".
"SlipperyJames Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"
" He was very defensive and started - for reasons that I don't understand - going into the list of people who had accused him of touching them improperly, sexual assault and how he hadn't done this, he hadn't done that, he hadn't done that", said Comey, who felt he then had to reassure Trump he wasn't being investigated over the allegations and ensure Trump didn't think the Federal Bureau of Investigation was "out to get him". "I'm about to meet with a person who doesn't know me, who has just been elected the president of the United States. and I'm about to talk to him about allegations that he was involved with prostitutes in Moscow and that the Russians taped it and have leverage over him". "I should've worked harder to find a way to convey that it's more than just the ordinary mistake, but it's not criminal behavior", Comey said.
Comey had also alleged later that after becoming the president, Trump had tried to gain personal loyalty from him - a charge the latter vehemently denied. "And so in its place has to be a fear that if you lie and the government can prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, they will prosecute you in order to send a message to all the others who might be called upon to give evidence", Comey said.
That argument was startling given that Comey's handling of the email investigation, including his disclosure shortly before the election that the FBI had reopened its probe, enraged Democrats.
Then again, should we be surprised? if Comey ever did see actual wrongdoing by Mr. Trump, do we really believe we'd just be hearing about it from a notoriously leak-friendly fellow like Comey?
When Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee past year, he said that he did not know if Trump obstructed justice, adding, "that's Bob Mueller's job to sort that out".
Comey, fired by Trump in May previous year, was anxious the president may be open to blackmail by Russian Federation during a 2013 Moscow visit. Yes, it's still possible he might be led out of the Oval Office in handcuffs by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but at this point that looks like a long shot. But Trump later said he was thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" around the time he chose to fire Comey.
Speaking to reporters on Air Force One, Sanders said Comey was "a self-admitted leaker".
He was sacked final Might amid the FBI's probing of potential connections between Trump's 2016 presidential marketing campaign and Russia's meddling within the American elections. "'Cause I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump". "Come with me, and sit there with me", he said. "People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values".
