His comments came ahead of his upcoming tell-all memoir about Mr Trump. Report Mr Trump fired Mr Comey last May, while the FBI was investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the US presidential elections in 2016.

Report Josh Schwerin, communications director at Priorities USA - a Democratic Party political action committee, argued that although Mr Comey's "inappropriate actions disrupted an election", he still could be "a valid source of damning information about Donald Trump". Report Mr Schwerin was apparently referring to Mr Comey's investigation into defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's handling of classified emails on a private server while she was the secretary of state. In July 2016, the former FBI boss decided not to press charges against Mrs Clinton - only to reopen an investigation in October, just days before the presidential vote.
