Ex-FBI Chief Comey: Trump «Morally Unfit» to Hold Office
Local Editor

The tell-all interview with the fired head of the bureau has touched upon a wide range of issues, including the resonant investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News' anchor George Stephanopoulos, former FBI head James Comey suggested that President Donald Trump was "morally unfit" to hold office. Comey has slammed widespread claims that Trump was medically unfit to be president and suggested his own version:

"But not in the way... I often hear people talk about it. I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on. I don't think he's medically unfit to be president. I think he's morally unfit to be president," the former FBI chief said.

He proceeded to explain the reasons, which to his mind, substantiated his claim:

"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 it, that person's not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds."

In addition, Comey told Stephanopoulos that Trump did not stick to the key American values:

"Our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country. The most important being truth. This president is not able to do that. He is morally unfit to be president," he said.

When asked if there was any chance that "Russians" had something on Trump and could blackmail him, Comey replied that it was "possible."

"I think it's possible. I don't know. There are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible," he told Stephanopoulos.

Comey has also opened up about his impressions after his first meeting with Trump, having thus revealed some details of his book, entitled "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership."

"He had impressively coiffed hair... it looks to be all his. I confess I stared at it pretty closely and my reaction was ‘it must take a lot of time in the morning. His ties was too long as it always is... he looked slightly orange up close with small white half-moons under his eyes, which I assume are from tanning goggles," he said.

Donald Trump fired James Comey in May 2017, explaining it was done upon the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Two days later, President Trump claimed that he had been planning on forcing Comey out over the poor handling of the investigation into the Hillary Clinton private server and e-mail scandal, "regardless" any recommendation.
