James Comey attacks Trump's integrity in new book, 'A Higher Loyalty'

The book is going to be heavily scrutinized by Trump's legal team, which would look for inconsistencies between their version and his public testimony under oath before Congress

According to excerpts obtained by The Associated Press and other news outlets, former FBI director James Comey describes President Trump as "untethered to truth" and "ego-driven" in his explosive upcoming book, 'A Higher Loyalty.'

The book hits the shelves on April 17. Comey takes the liberty to question the strength of Trump's marriage to Melania after revealing that the president asked him to investigate salacious allegations about his alleged actions with Russian prostitutes in the past.

"It bothered [President Trump] if there was 'even a one percent chance' his wife, Melania, thought it was true," Comey wrote, according to the New York Post. Later on, Comey asked: "In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn’t do that?

Furthermore, the 6-foot-8 Comey went on to describe Trump as shorter than he anticipated with a longer than usual tie and "bright white half-moons" under his eyes that he suggested came from tanning goggles, the AP reports.

The fired FBI Director also made a genuine effort to check the president's hands, whose size had been the subject of mockery among many of Trump's rivals during the presidential race. Comey said that it was  "smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so."

Comey also called the Trump presidency a "forest fire" and wrote in his book that his interactions with the administration reminded him of "my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob," according to The Washington Post.
