The tell-all interview with the fired head of the bureau has touched upon a wide range of issues, including the resonant investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ anchor George Stephanopoulos, former FBI head James Comey suggested that President Donald Trump was “morally unfit” to hold office. Comey has slammed widespread claims that Trump was medically unfit to be president and suggested his own version:
“But not in the way… I often hear people talk about it. I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who’s tracking conversations and knows what’s going on. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president,” the former FBI chief said.
He proceeded to explain the reasons, which to his mind, substantiated his claim:
“A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds.”
