Comey vs. Trump: Ultimate political smackdown has begun!

Comey on sending letter about Clinton: I felt like 'everybody hated me'

US President Donald Trump has attacked former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey over his "many lies", suggesting he be jailed over his testimony to Congress.

In an interview broadcast on Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America", Comey discussed his initial encounters past year with Trump, who took office on January 20, 2017.

The president fired Comey last May while his agency was investigating potential collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 USA election in a move that led the Justice Department to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller to take over a probe that has hung over his presidency.

He also reveals new details about his interactions with Trump and his own decision-making in handling the Hillary Clinton email investigation before the 2016 election.

Comey told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an interview with 20/20to be aired Sunday evening that his decision to publicly announce the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clinton's emails just days before the election was likely influenced by the fact that he thought she would win. "The 6'8" Comey says Trump appears shorter in person.

Comey said he cautioned Trump against ordering an investigation into a salacious intelligence dossier alleging an 2013 encounter involving prostitutes in Moscow. Trump also sought to rebut Comey's claim that he had demanded personal loyalty, insisting in a tweet that "I hardly even knew this guy".

Trump began Friday morning with a twitter airstrike hitting Comey.

The president's sharp remarks came hours ahead of Mr. Comey's first major news media appearance since being fired by President Trump previous year.

Comey testified before Congress Trump's quest for loyalty made him uncomfortable.

During the summer of the 2016 campaign, Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on a tarmac while the email investigation was still underway. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst "botch jobs" of history. Trump wrote. "Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary?"
