James Comey: I'm 'Embarrassed and Ashamed' by the Republican Party

James Comey: I'm 'Embarrassed and Ashamed' by the Republican Partyā€¯

In February, Comey wrote that Trump told him "he hadn't stayed overnight in Russia" during the trip.

"There was a boy that the group found irritating, and I participated in picking on him", Comey said during a CNN town hall at his alma mater, William & Mary.

I thought I was a good person. And Trump, who has showed a knack for helping publications he despises, tweeted that Comey was an "untruthful slime ball".

One student asked Comey if he has a nickname for Trump.

"Coming here and learning about how Comey's actions affected the election, how his interactions with President Trump influenced the electorate, all the different interactions is fascinating to me", said sophomore Carter Trousdale. Higher-than-expected demand led Macmillan imprint Henry Holt & Co to order up 2.1 million copies in its first week.

The White House and the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider.

Doors opened around 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Nevertheless, Comey said he bullied someone in college and that he learned things from the experience about his own shortcomings and what people are capable of in groups.

"What I hope they'll do is ask themselves, Republicans: 'So what will I tell my grandchildren when they ask me so what did you do?"

The fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation director says that great leaders have enough confidence to be humble and are confident in their own skin - qualities are needed to be a great leader and which he says the President does not possess.

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.

"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. I was attracted that character matters and values matter most of all. "Some things I did".

The book has drawn Trump's ire as Comey compared the president to a mob boss who stresses personal loyalty over the law and has little regard for morality or truth.
