In Comey's recollection of a conversation he had with then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Priebus asked him point-blank if there was a FISA order against Flynn.

"I think he has an emptiness inside of him, and a hunger for affirmation, that I've never seen in an adult", Comey said.

They detail the president's alleged demands for loyalty from the former director and his requests for Comey to shut down its investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. "Really, does everybody know what that means?" "And the notion that this was somehow something that he had to do for the welfare of the country, there's a lot of disingenuous claptrap", Mukasey continued, calling Comey's handling of the Clinton probe "outrageous".

"I don't crave to be known", Comey told Remnick, and added that he would feel more comfortable "not doing something like this", but that he has to promote his book.

Obama, meanwhile, draws particular praise for his level-headedness, wisdom, kindness and ability to listen and consider different perspectives.

My favourite Comey bits involve descriptions of Trump's astounding logorrhoea, a sort of defensive ploy in which his wall of words, uttered without pause and often without connection to each other, effectively keeps anybody from telling him anything. Now both sides on the great Trump-Comey divide are claiming the documents vindicate their views of the matter.

He said the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director had been able to "leak and lie and make lots of money from a third rate book".

The documents helped form the rationale behind appointing special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate President Trump's alleged collusion with Russian Federation to win the 2016 election.

"Former FBI director James Comey walks through a corridor on the way to a secure room to continue his testimony to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 8, 2017".

Mukasey concurred, saying, "Regrettably I think the damage is enormous because the head of the organization becomes the figurehead that everybody looks to judge how the organization performs".
