Mr Comey claims to have encouraged Mr Kelly, a retired general, to stay in post, telling him "this president", more than his predecessors, needed people of integrity around him.

Trump continued unprompted, Comey said, "explaining why it couldn't possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie".

Throughout the e-book, which hits cupboards April 17, Comey goes so far as to question the vitality of Trump's marriage to his partner, Melania, after revealing that Trump requested him to analysis salacious allegations about his actions with Russian prostitutes.

But if the early reports of Comey's "A Higher Loyalty" are any indication, the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director chose to take on Trump with both barrels - delivering an absolutely unsparing and embarrassing portrait of the most powerful person in the country.

"You can't be kicked out of the room so he can talk to me alone", Comey told Sessions, according to an excerpt in The Washington Post.

"I don't know James Comey, but I'm certainly not someone who would have any desire to criticize or bring him down", he said.

Former FBI director James Comey testifies before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 8, 2017.

Trump expected to pardon Scooter Libby
According to ABC News, the president has already signed off on a pardon for Libby and has been considering it for several months. President Trump is reportedly prepared to pardon Scooter Libby , the former chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney .

Trump has said he fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI's investigation into Clinton's email practices.

Last year Comey revealed that Trump had pressured him to drop an investigation into Mike Flynn, the USA leader's former national security advisor, and also demanded a loyalty pledge.

Comey later wrote that his moments with Trump gave him "flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob".

Comey was abrubtly fired by President Trump a year ago and has been unpopular on both sides of the political aisle. After he was sacked, it was discovered that Comey had kept contemporaneous memos regarding his interactions with Trump; in one leaked memo, Comey wrote that Trump asked him to "let go" of potential charges against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

"Holy crap", Comey wrote.

At the bottom of the homepage, the RNC trumpets "Obstruction?" noting that Comey "may" use his book tour to "push the phony narrative" that Trump obstructed the Russian Federation investigation. They will be looking to impeach Mr Comey's credibility as a key witness in the special counsel's obstruction investigation, which the president has cast as a political motivated witch hunt.
