In a pair of tweets, Trump accused Comey of leaking classified information and lying to Congress under oath. Comey said he recalled Trump discussing the dossier during a dinner with the president on January 27, 2017.
In Sunday's tweets, Trump cited Comey's admission about his decision-making and asserted, confusingly, that he handled the investigation how he did because he wanted a job, presumably in the Clinton administration.
"It took a lot of guts", Trump said.
"The president said, 'I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.' I didn't move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed". I was not his fan.
Comey writes that he regrets not interrupting Trump to explain that his plea was wrong. In his book, Comey wrote about Trump's concern over allegations about blackmail and prostitution contained in an opposition research dossier on Trump written by former British intelligence office Christopher Steele, which Comey said the President referred to as "the golden showers thing", reports CNN.
So who do you think is more credible: Trump or Comey?
If Comey were to ask me if I believe that, it would be very awkward.

The Trump administration says it has ordered the Agriculture Department to create a program to help farmers hurt by trade. Taro Aso, Japan's finance minister and deputy prime minister said that "if the news is true, we would welcome it".
Trump tweeted James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR.
Third, Trump gets into his claim that there's a partisan conspiracy working against him - claiming former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is corrupt, and that this is all somehow actually Hillary Clinton's fault.
Comey also claims that the United States president is obsessed with the alleged existence of a video showing Russian prostitutes said to be hired by Trump urinating on each other in a Moscow hotel room.
"You can't be kicked out of the room so he can talk to me alone", Comey told Sessions, according to an excerpt in The Washington Post.
According to him, it appeared obvious at the time that Hillary Clinton was "going to be elected president", thus making him reason that burying the investigation might make her "illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out". "He said, 'If there's even a 1% chance that my wife thinks that's true, that's bad.' And I remember thinking, 'How could your wife think there's a 1% chance that you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?'" he said.
June 8: Comey tells Senate Intelligence Committee he was "confused" and "increasingly concerned" about the "shifting explanations" for his dismissal. In his first meeting with her, Trump supposedly dropped his pants so that she could spank him with a copy of a magazine with his picture on the cover.
American intelligence agencies past year said Russian Federation interfered in the election through a campaign of propaganda and hacking in a scheme to sow discord in the United States and help get Trump elected. "He was the best thing that ever happened to her!"
Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Clinton's email practices. Just another of his many lies. In the book, Comey says that Trump demanded loyalty from the director, and was obsessed with allegations about sexual improprieties allegedly recorded by the Russians (the so-called "pee tape").
