During the much-anticipated television interview that marks the official start of a nationwide tour to promote his new memoir "A Higher Loyalty", Comey acknowledged that even on Election Night, he expected Clinton would defeat Trump.

Almost half of likely U.S. voters say former FBI Director James Comey must face criminal prosecution and also want a special prosecutor appointed to examine how the FBI handled its investigation of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emails during the 2016 election, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports.

"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR", Trump tweeted.

In his five-hour interview with ABCs chief anchor, George Stephanopoulos, on the program 20/20, Comey said the president "treats women like theyre pieces of meat", and "lies constantly about matters big and small". "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, 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".

The poll also revealed that 49 percent of voters say a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials under then-Director Comey handled the investigations of Hillary Clinton and Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion during the 2016 presidential campaign and subsequent transition, the release said.

Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks it's possible that President Donald Trump might be compromised by the Russians.

The poll was released two days before Comey's interview with ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. Comey blasted Trump as unfit for the office in the interview that aired Sunday night

In an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday night, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief says he could not discount the possibility that Russian Federation might have something on the president.

Trump on Monday again alleged that while Federal Bureau of Investigation director Comey prematurely decided he would not recommend his Justice Department bosses prosecute Clinton over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

In his book, according to leaked excerpts, Comey wrote he might have subconsciously viewed her as the next president.

Lynch says she was simply following longstanding Justice Department protocol against confirming or denying the existence of an investigation. He said, like others, he expected Clinton would win throughout the general election, saying he was seeing the same polling data that led many political experts to predict she would be the 45th president. But he denied making decisions about the email probe based on that expectation. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
