According to sources, Comey writes in his book that he encouraged Kelly to remain in his post, saying "this president", more than his predecessors, needed people of principle and integrity around him. The Washington Post has already reported that Trump was obsessed with the "golden showers" allegation in Christopher's Steele's dossier about him and was ready to use Federal Bureau of Investigation resources to disprove it for the sake of first lady Melania Trump, according to Comey. Forty-five even went as far as bringing First Lady Melania Trump into the discussion by asking Comey what could be done to "lift the cloud" on the claims, which he noted are a painful topic for the first lady to handle.

"In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn't do that?" he wrote in the book.

James Comey's upcoming memoir A Higher Loyalty alleges that Donald Trump was fixated on proving that the infamous "pee tape" wasn't real, and that the president is "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", according to reports which surfaced Thursday.

Comey recalled the interaction occurred at the same dinner where he said Trump asked for his "loyalty", which Trump has denied. I never thought for a minute that Mr. Comey sought to change the outcome of the presidential election, the balance of power in the Senate and the philosophical leaning of the Supreme Court.

Hillary Clinton's poll numbers plummeted after Mr. Comey's October surprise, which left her campaign virtually defenseless as F.B.I. agents reviewed her email messages.

"I think [Comey's] trying to sell a book", Graham said. The dossier describes prostitutes' performing a highly unusual act involving urination with Trump present as a way to sully the bed, which had previously been used by President Barack Obama. Trump later said the Russian Federation investigation was on his mind when he made a decision to fire Comey.

Trump shakes hands with Comey during a reception in the Blue Room of the White House on January 22, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Comey later wrote that his moments with Trump gave him "flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob".

"They've been about to information a country that had been attacked by a overseas adversary, however that they'd no questions on what the long term Russian menace might be", Comey wrote, primarily based on The AP. They will be looking to impeach Mr Comey's credibility as a key witness in the special counsel's obstruction investigation, which the president has cast as a political motivated witch hunt.
