James Comey claims Donald Trump wanted him to investigate 'pee tape' allegations to reassure Melania
[www.telegraph.co.uk]
Donald Trump wanted James Comey to investigate the infamous “pee tape” allegations to reassure his wife that he had not paid Russian prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed, the former FBI chief claims in his upcoming book.

“He brought up what he called the ‘golden showers thing,’ adding that it bothered him if there was ‘even a one percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true,” writes Mr Comey in his book, to be published next week.

“He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie. I said it was up to him.”

Mr Comey writes that the conversation took place during the same private dinner on January 27, 2017, where Mr Comey as claims the president demanded “loyalty”. The dinner was held days after BuzzFeed published an intelligence dossier produced by British former spy Christopher Steele, alleging that the Kremlin had a tape of Mr Trump paying prostitutes to urinate on a bed once occupied by Barack Obama.

Mr Comey also claims in the book that Mr Trump's chief of staff called the president "dishonourable" over his firing of Mr Comey.

Mr Comey was fired in May, when he was heading up an investigation into possible collusion between Russians and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, saying he was "not able to effectively lead the bureau".

Mr Comey was in California on a work trip at the time and only learned of his sacking when he saw the news break on TV screens.

According to the Daily Beast, Mr Comey claims in his memoir that John Kelly, who was at the time the head of the Department of Homeland Security, called him within minutes of his dismissal to offer his support.

Mr Comey reportedly writes that Mr Kelly, now the White House chief of staff, was “emotional” over the manner in which he was fired.

He went on to say that he “intended to quit” in protest because “he didn’t want to work for dishonourable people” in a pointed reference to Mr Trump.

Mr Comey claims to have encouraged Mr Kelly, a retired general, to stay in post telling him “this president”, more than his predecessors, needed people of principle and integrity around him.

Mr Kelly's offer to resign has previously been reported but Mr Comey’s comments offer the first confirmation of the story and reveal the fiery comments made by Mr Trump's right hand man.

Mr Kelly is known to have a difficult relationship with the president but the revelations will likely cause further tensions in the West Wing.

It comes as the Republican Party launched a smear campaign against Mr Comey in anticipation of his tell-all book, which is expected to be heavily critical of Mr Trump.

It takes the form of a website called "Lyin' Comey" which brands the former FBI chief as a discredited, partisan former official.

The extensive counter-offensive , funded by the Republican National Committee, also includes digital advertising to be sent to Republicans across the country before Mr Comey's book is published on Tuesday.

President Trump told James Comey that ‘pee tape' can't be real because he’s a ‘germaphobe’

He wanted to stop the leak.
President Trump once told James Comey that he would never hire Russian prostitutes to pee on each other because he's a "germaphobe," according to a tell-all book by the axed FBI director.

Comey's upcoming memoir, "A Higher Loyalty," recounts a salacious conversation he had with Trump last January about the then-unreleased Steele dossier, a cache of documents alleging that the Russian government has compromising information on the President, including a "pee tape."

During their conversation at Trump Tower, Comey said Trump offered a series of explanations for why he would never instruct Russian hookers to urinate on each other.

"I'm a germaphobe," Trump told Comey, according to his account. "There's no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way."

The Steele dossier, which was made public weeks after the Trump Tower meet, claims that Trump hired the hookers in 2013 to perform the lewd act in the same Moscow hotel suite that the Obamas once stayed in "as a way of soiling the bed."

Trump asked Comey if the FBI could do anything to disprove the scandalous news reports that he feared would emanate from the unverified dossier, which was compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele.
During a one-on-one dinner at the White House after the dossier’s release, Trump raised the issue again, telling Comey that news stories about the alleged Moscow hotel act was very painful for First Lady Melania to read. Trump told Comey it bothered him that there might be even "a one percent chance" his wife might think it's true, according to the book.

Comey writes that he was perplexed "why his wife would think there was any chance, even a small one, that he had been with prostitutes urinating on each other in a Moscow hotel room.”

Comey's bombshell memoir, which is set to hit the shelves Tuesday, gives an eye-opening view of the tumultuous four months that he spent as Trump's FBI director.

Trump unceremoniously fired Comey on May 9, 2017, setting into motion a series of events that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller is probing whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey, who oversaw the U.S. counterintelligence investigation into Russian election meddling at the time. Mueller is also looking into the possibility that Trump's campaign colluded with the Russian government.

Comey's memoir drips with resentment and includes numerous personal jabs, including references to Trump as an "ego driven" narcissist who's "untethered to truth."
The book is set to hit the shelves Tuesday.

In a striking shot at his physique, the 6-foot-8 Comey describes Trump as shorter than he expected with a "too long" tie and "bright white half-moons" under his eyes that appeared to be from tanning goggles.

Comey also made sure to check out Trump's hands.
"(They were) smaller than mine but did not seem unusually so," Comey writes.

Comey casts the President as a mafia boss-like figure who sought to blur the line between law enforcement and politics and tried to pressure him regarding his investigation into Russian election interference.

The ex-FBI director writes extensively about the first time he met Trump at his namesake Manhattan skyscraper.

Beyond Trump's "pee tape" denials, Comey and Trump discussed the intelligence community's findings about Russia's interference in the 2016 election. Comey was joined by National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Also present in the room were a number of Trump's incoming White House officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, chief of staff Reince Priebus, national security adviser Michael Flynn and press secretary Sean Spicer — all of whom, except Pence, have since left the administration.

Comey was stunned that the Trump officials in the room seemed oblivious to the Kremlin's election meddling.

"They were about to lead a country that had been attacked by a foreign adversary, yet they had no questions about what the future Russian threat might be,” Comey writes. Instead, they launched into a strategy session about how to “spin what we’d just told them” for the public.

Comey’s account lands at a particularly sensitive moment for Trump and the White House.

Administration officials say Trump has fumed over a recent FBI raid at his personal lawyer’s Manhattan hotel room and office, raising the prospect that he could fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, or try to shut down the probe on his own. The Republican National Committee is poised to lead the pushback effort against Comey, who is set to do a series of interviews to promote the book.

Trump claims he was justified in firing Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email servers.

Trump used the email investigation as a cudgel during the campaign and repeatedly claimed Clinton should be jailed for using a personal email system while serving as secretary of state. Democrats, on the other hand, have accused Comey of politicizing the investigation, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.

Comey’s book will be heavily scrutinized by Trump’s legal team looking for any inconsistencies between it and his public testimony, under oath, before Congress. They will be looking to impeach Comey’s credibility as a key witness in Mueller’s obstruction probe, which the president has cast as a "witch hunt.

The gratuitous comment about checking out his hands is one I would have written. Comey shouldn't have because it brings him down to Pres. Trump's level.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

To be fair, you didn't read that from the book. That was a rephrasing by whoever wrote the article. It sounds as if it made during a wider description of what he noticed when first meeting Trump in person, in which case addressing the famous issue of small hands would be part of that. Yanking the comment out of context makes it seem gratuitous.
