Trump ‘morally unfit’ to be President: Comey

| | Washington

Donald Trump is “morally unfit” to be President, former FBI chief James Comey asserted on Monday as he claimed “its possible” that Moscow may have information on him that could be used to compromise him.

Comey, who was unceremoniously fired by the US President in May last year, in a wide-ranging interview to ABC News also warned that if Trump ever tries to sack special counsel Robert Mueller, then it would be his “most serious attack yet on the rule of law” and causing “tremendous damage” to the countrys institutions.

Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election and any potential ties between Trump campaign and Russia. Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a witch hunt and denied any collusion.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation directors blunt comments came as the 57-year-old lawyer kicked off a high-profile tour to promote the release of his new book, “A Higher Loyalty.”

Asked if he thinks the President has been compromised by the Russians, Comey said, “I think its possible, I dont know,” Comey said.

“I wish I wasnt saying it, but its the truth. It always struck me, and still strikes me, as unlikely, and I would have been able to say with high confidence about any other president I dealt with, but I cant, its possible,” he said.
