Former FBI director James Comey has slammed Donald Trump as “morally unfit” to be president and accused him of treating women “like they’re pieces of meat”.
In a searing interview with ABC News, Comey touched on many of the scandals that have plagued the Trump administration over the past 16 months, including the Russia dossier and the litany of sexual misconduct allegations levelled at the president.
It is the first television interview that Comey, who is promoting his new book ‘A Higher Loyalty’, has given since he was fired as head of the FBI by Trump last May.
The book has triggered a furious response from Trump, who took to Twitter to call Comey “the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!”
Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!

Here are the five key claims from Comey’s explosive interview…

Later referencing concerns about 71-year-old Trump’s health, Comey added: “I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia.
“I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president.”
2. The president could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail
Comey alleged that the president could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail, saying it was “possible” Russia has “something” on Trump.
“I think it’s possible,” he told Stephanopoulos. “I don’t know. These are more words I never thought I’d utter about a president of the United States, but it’s possible.”
During the interview, the pair touched on the infamous Steele dossier, which was compiled by a former British spy and alleged that footage exists of Trump watching prostitutes urinating in a Moscow hotel suite.
