Trump's morning tweet comes ahead of Comey's interview with ABC to be broadcast in full on Sunday evening. The silent circle of assent.
"I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth", he said, "but I don't know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It's possible, but I don't know", Comey told ABC's George Stephanopoulos.
"Do you think the Russians have something on Donald Trump?".
"I think it's possible. Going to do tremendous damage", Comey said. That's a criminal investigation. "That's crazy. How could that be?" "Well maybe", he conceded.
Trump's tweets included numerous allegations that are unproven and unverified. Cohen wrote a $130,000 check to Daniels in October 2016 to keep her from going to the press during the final stages of the presidential election campaign.
Comey blasted Trump as unfit for the office in the ABC interview. "What she did was really sloppy", Comey said. "Yeah, that's fair feedback". I know my amazing spouse did... Lots of others are set to follow.
Comey's book will be released next week. 'I think he's morally unfit to be president, ' Comey told Stephanopoulos.
He replied: "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been".

Comey's televised remarks, coupled with the release of his forthcoming book, offer his version of events surrounding his firing and the investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton's email practices.
Talk about talkin' some smack!
Comey said Rosenstein had "acted dishonourably" in writing a memo lambasting Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. "I thought I'd given enough to put him on notice as to what the essence of the material was". That's just not true. He said he hoped that people would see "I'm not trying to help a candidate or hurt a candidate; I'm trying to do the right thing". I was writing about peer pressure.

"Comey throws AG Lynch 'under the bus!' Why can't we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch?"
Later on, the president branded Comey as a historical failure at his job leading the FBI.
Possibly maybe. More importantly, he now looks like a guy who needs an impeachment lawyer.
