Fired FBI Director James Comey was featured in an interview on “ABC’s 20/20” last night. Among the comments made was one where Comey said Donald Trump is “not morally fit for office.” He also said it’s possible that Trump obstructed justice when the president pressured him to drop an investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
In this clip from last night’s interview, Comey says he was just trying to do the right thing and not to help any particular candidate.
Here is more on the Comey interview
In his first interview since being fired, former FBI Director James Comey described President Trump as an ego-driven liar who treats women like “meat” and is “morally unfit to be president.”
“I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president,” Comey said in a wide-ranging sit-down Sunday night with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe him - that person is not fit to be president of the United States on moral grounds.”
Ahead of the interview, Trump fired off a series of tweets calling the country’s former top cop a “slimeball,” a liar and directly refuted claims he asked Comey for his loyalty.
