Trump, of course, was apoplectic in his weekend tweets.

During a Tuesday interview on "The Late Show", Comey told host Stephen Colbert that he was surprised when he got fired. And according to a lawsuit filed by former Playboy model Karen McDougal, Cohen was involved behind the scenes in cementing a $150,000 agreement that squelched her story of a 10-month affair she says she had with Trump.

Both the president's critics and proponents, like former chief political strategist Steve Bannon, have since said Comey's dismissal was one of the worst decisions Trump has made, only adding fuel to speculationa or accusations of collusion with Russia.

Comey's firing by Trump last year led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Russians and the Trump campaign. "That's what he does". Comey has said Trump asked him repeatedly to investigate the matter so it could be disproved, because the details might upset his wife. "Why would you fire the FBI director whose leading the Russia investigation?"

The reopened inquiry was a bust, but it unquestionably damaged Clinton's campaign.

The whole interview is well worth watching for its importance as well as its humor.

"I'm hoping to be able to sift through just one person's telling", said Thomas, 52, an administrative assistant from Longmeadow, Massachusetts, vacationing in New York. I hope and pray we didn't. "It matters that the President is not committed to the truth as a central American value".

He then pulled out the bottle of wine and two paper cups and made a toast with Comey. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. "I stared at him, didn't blink, didn't make a sound".

Munshi also stated that the new interview wouldn't shed light on any new developments. He also rejected the idea that he feels angry over over being fired. "I really wasn't trying to pick on Donald Trump", Comey insisted.

"Personally, I couldn't stomach watching him", said Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress and a former Clinton staff member. "I'm worried, actually, which is why I'm doing something I don't love, talking about it and writing about it. But not anger".

"In the last few days, he has called you 'Slippery [James],' and he has called you a slimeball", Colbert said, referring to Trump's persistent tweets about Comey. "I don't think he can admit that". Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

"It's not okay for the President of the United States to say a private citizen should be in jail", he said. "Speaking would be really bad and silence would be catastrophic", Comey said.

"It's a Trump game to talk about those things", she said. "Comey stated. But it's happened so much there's a danger we're now numb to it". "In January 2017, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the Justice Department for failing to respond to these requests", Judicial Watch reported.

Stephanopoulos: "You even clocked the size of his hands?"
