Former FBI Director James Comey’s new book “A Higher Loyalty” hasn’t even been released, and it’s already causing a stir. Good Morning America previewed a clip from George Stephanopoulos’ interview with Comey in which they discussed the possibility of whether or not certain salacious details in the controversial Steele Dossier are true.
In his book, set for release on April 17, Comey wrote that Donald Trump asked him to investigate the rumor that Russians possess a tape of him in a Moscow hotel room with prostitutes performing the s*x act referred to as “golden-showers.” If the video is real, it could be used as blackmail — or what the Russians refer to as “kompromat” or compromising material.
Comey recalled his first conversations with Trump — who asked him for help in shutting down the notion that the Russian cyber attack impacted the outcome of the 2016 election. Comey said he found it odd that the president had no questions about how to prevent future attacks.
He told Stephanopoulos, “No one, to my recollection, asked ‘what’s coming next from the Russians? How might we stop it? What’s the future look like?’ It was all, what can we say about what they did and how it affects the election that we just had.”
The former FBI director shared that his briefings with Trump on the “golden-showers” rumors were weird and that it was “almost an out-of-body experience for me.”
Comey also noted that it was strange that First Lady Melania Trump worried the tape could exist. When Stephanopoulos asked if he believes such a tape exists, Comey replied, “I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with pr*stitutes p**ing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It’s possible, but I don’t know.”
We may never find out if there is a golden-showers tape with Trump and Russian prostitutes but we do know Comey’s new book is driving Trump mad. His unhinged tweets are proof and his mania will only escalate, Comey is set to go on a media blitz discussing the details of the book.
