Cooper pressed Comey on his decision to leak a memo to a friend after he was sacked in May 2017 during a CNN town hall event at William & Mary.

Comey was sacked in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether anyone close to the president colluded with Russian intelligence agents to influence the 2016 presidential election. I write at the end of my book that Trump's presidency is a forest fire ... they do damage but things grow in the wake of them.

Comey argues that Trump does not make decisions on the basis of philosophical, religious or logical considerations, but simply to assuage the deficiencies of his own character and emotional makeup. Higher-than-expected demand led Macmillan imprint Henry Holt & Co to order up 2.1 million copies in its first week.

Doors opened around 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Former F.B.I. director James Comey's book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", has dominated headlines for more than a week, and became an instant blockbuster, selling more than 600,000 copies in all formats during its first week on sale.

Neither the White House nor Trump Organization immediately responded to requests for comment. On Saturday, November 9, Bloomberg reported that Facebook posts showed Trump at Moscow's Ritz-Carlton Hotel, where it is alleged in former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele's dossier that Russian intelligence may have video footage of prostitutes performing a lewd sex act involving urination in the presence of the future president.

The claims include that Jackson had wrecked a government vehicle after getting drunk at a Secret Service going-away party. Tester will face one of several Republicans vying to face him in November, including former State Rep.

Over the weekend, Trump retweeted a post from the Daily Mail's United States political editor, David Martosko, who wrote that he is "astonished at the lack of Republican messaging today" regarding how the memos "confirm Trump asked Comey to investigate and lay to rest the Russian hookers stuff, which is something you don't do if you're guilty".

They say it was a great way to socialize and learn at the same time.

"The details matter because the facts matter, and should matter even to the President", Comey explained, adding that he had chosen to classify some memos but not all of them.

Comey has been on a media blitz, sitting for numerous television and radio interviews, while also on a book tour that has seen him appear before sold-out audiences of more than a thousand.

"To me, what matters most, and what the American people did not vote for and would not vote for is the derogation of the norms, the touchstone of truth, which is the heart of this country", he said. "Some things I did".
