Transcript for James Comey says he doesn't think Trump will fire Mueller
I wanted to know when I read the book you you reference trumps. It's possible self tanning. The size the scans his hair. I understand why you did that you've said over and over you are setting the stage were taking the reader in the room with you. But as someone that's holding you to a certain standard in this book to show the credibility you you tout this is a higher calling you know leadership. Was it worth fit when we've seen that all already. At the expense of possibly some credibility. Because it sounds it optically it's a trumped Eaton to talk about those things know what he does. I think you're right if I had it to do over again. I wouldn't put that paragraph in. Even though just because it gave people look a hand hold who had read the book to attack the book I I just want people to read the books or it can be useful to them. But that would have made inconsistent and everything else one of my heroes was my first Boston worked at a grocery store. I describe him in great detail issues his pants his belt his. And so I wouldn't try to pick on him I really wasn't trying to pick on Donald Trump I could hear my editor's voice. They bring the reader bring the reader asked and so that's what I'm trying to do and I was imminent but it is hand inspect I say in the book is hands seem normal size to me I'm not. I really was not but now that I saved us out of drawing sold it as long hours low. Yeah I that was not my intention but I do see people and seized on to that as a distraction so mr. Imus event to over again I would care that paragraph out I'll describe my boss described John Ashcroft spaces in late in the intensive care but leave out the script you know what there's always a paperback. This contract. Stop me Daniels on yesterday. Just quite interesting thought that all over the place. I say that about me tomorrow live yeah but she down I think she's gonna bring down trop. A lot of people agree with that rather than the Russian investigations this is a crime some crimes have been committed and I think she's gonna do what you thank. I don't know. I really don't know I can't buy you I wouldn't say what I got I don't know. Not having guests about this the seriousness of the and the investigation but we don't know what all is god why I know I Qaeda has been no leaks senator Al Muller's operation I only know what I've seen in the newspapers insight and. What is thing he fires mullah we going to be with us. And this has its adequate and well what we're in the streets as well thank YI I don't think that's gonna happen and I you don't I don't. Because. It would make no sense for bunch a reasons. It would make no difference in the investigation the president have to fire everyone in the department of justice and the FBI to stop an investigation. So doesn't make any sense to fire director Mueller and bring the kind of storm that would bring I actually don't expect it to happen. We did think I just got Buchanan who fired you know how. I'm not the best judge did not I'm. What we can agree that it would be political suicide if he did that we earned the chance I don't I don't expect it to I think that's right. You goal difference are.
