U.S. President Donald Trump makes a statement about Syria Thomson Reuters WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump hurled a new set of insults on James Comey on Sunday, challenging accusations the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director makes in a tell-all book that is due for release this week, and insisting that he never pressed Comey to be loyal to him.

On Sunday, before the ABC interview aired, Comey tweeted that his book draws on stories from his life and from lessons he has learned from others.

After an hour of trashing Comey's character and reputation, Trump posted that he barely knew Comey, his favourite way of distancing himself from a contentious figure. "His "memos" are self serving and FAKE!" said one tweet. "No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!" tweeted Trump.

Mueller's probe has expanded to include whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

"He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a awful Director of the FBI", Trump added in a second tweet.

The network has been promoting the interview with enticing bits of information, including Stephanopoulos revealing that Comey compares Trump to a "mob boss."

"And I have every confidence that Jim Comey accurately copied, collected, recounted what exactly went on during those discussions", former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said. Trump also said in what so far has been the final tweet on the subject. That helped Trump and hurt Clinton, not the other way around.

Trump slammed Comey on Friday morning and called him a "proven LEAKER & LIAR" and a "weak and untruthful slime ball".

As for Trump's claims about Comey helping Hillary Clinton, here are conservative writer Bill Kristol's thoughts. Trump seized on that, saying Comey "was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job".

"Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the bad job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump tweeted Friday.

The interview, conducted by George Stephanopoulos, took place in Comey's home in Virginia last Monday, according to Axios. In a promo for the interview, Stephanopoulos asks Comey: "How odd is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss?".

Mr Comey writes that he regrets his approach and some of the wording he used in his July 2016 press conference in which he announced the decision not to prosecute Mrs Clinton.

In his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee a year ago, Comey said he believes the President asked him to "drop any investigation of Flynn", a reference to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Trump has denied any collusion, but the Russian Federation probe has been an open sore on his presidency.
