"Comey is a liar and a leaker and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing", McDaniel said. But Comey encouraged Kelly to stay on, telling him that Trump, more than other presidents, needed to be surrounded by principled people.

If there is any doubt whatsoever that the Republican National Committee is now President Donald Trump's, a new RNC-funded website ought to vanquish any notions to the contrary.

His media blitz begins Sunday evening in an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, who says Comey compared Trump to a "mob boss". Two months before he would be named White House chief of staff, Kelly told Comey that he was "sick" over the firing, Comey writes in his new book A Higher Loyalty, according to a report in the Daily Beast.

As part of its effort, the RNC is also distributing talking points to Trump surrogates to further its case against Comey.

Paramedics also treated and transported his passenger to the hospital in stable condition after she sustained an ear injury. Kansas City, Missouri police said around 4 p.m., a white truck struck an occupied police vehicle near 34th and Lawndale.

Among those quoted on the RNC website is the 2016 Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, who argued her campaign was seriously undercut by the FBI's investigation, overseen by Comey, into her use of a private email server while secretary of state. The White House reportedly signed off on the attack plan.

Kelly added that he "intended to quit", Comey writes, and "said he didn't want to work for dishonorable people".

But some Republicans have abstained from publicly criticizing Comey before his book tour. Sen. I don't know what "go there" means exactly, but it already gets three snaps in Z-formation from me. Mrs Clinton's supporters believed that the investigation was politically motivated and aided Mr Trump's campaign. The Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel in the Russian Federation probe after it was revealed that Trump had asked Comey to drop the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. A former deputy attorney general in the George W. Bush administration, he was appointed by President Barack Obama to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2013.
