President Donald Trump fired off a barrage of angry tweets early Sunday morning, directing much of his ire at the the former head of the FBI, whom he called "the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"
President Donald Trump's decision to fire former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in May 2017 was later described as perhaps the "biggest mistake in modern political history" by Mr Trump's then advisor Steve Bannon.
In an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday night, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief says he could not discount the possibility that Russian Federation might have something on the president.
Excerpts from Comey's book paint Trump as someone who is "unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values", according to ABC.

Comey's remarks are the latest salvo in a war of words with Trump, who excoriated the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director on Twitter earlier in the day, again calling him a "slimeball" and suggesting he should be jailed.
Comey re-openened the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the election, which many believe cost her the White House.
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is defending her actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation following criticism from former FBI Director James Comey.
Trump accused Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and others in the bureau of committing crimes by finding no evidence of criminal wrongdoing on Clinton's part.
He also appeared to cite Comey's testimony before Congress past year, in which he told Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican of Iowa, that he had never been an anonymous source to the press nor had he authorized someone else to do the same.
Comey's morality-based contempt for Trump appears so strong that he wondered aloud, in the interview: "Where are we as a country?"More news: Former Steelers LB James Harrison Announces Retirement
Trump and his aides have countered Comey's media blitz by attacking his handling of the probe into Clinton's emails.
The President denies those claims.
The insult slinging has officially begun, and neither Trump nor Comey minced their words.
And so it was Monday, when Conway appeared on New Day to discuss the blockbuster James Comey interview with Cuomo.
"We had the problem that President Obama had twice publicly basically said, "There's no there, there" in an interview with- on Fox, an interview on 60 Minutes I think, both times he said that", Comey said.
"It is stunning and I wish I wasn't saying it, but it's just - it's the truth", he said, but added, "It always struck me and still strikes me as unlikely".

"I (would have) been able to say with high confidence about any other President I dealt with, but I can't". He's on a press tour to promote his new book, "A Higher Loyalty", and he's stated that he believes Trump is morally unfit to lead the nation.
