White House says Comey's loyal 'only to himself'

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) The White House has unleashed a blistering critique of former FBI Director James Comey as he begins promoting his memoir.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Comey will "be forever known as a disgraced partisan hack" after the publication of his book, "A Higher Loyalty."

She adds that Comey's loyalty is "only to himself."

Sanders is accusing Comey of leaking classified information and breaking his "sacred trust with the president of the United States, the dedicated agents of the FBI, and the American people."

"I think it's very clear that Comey has a credibility problem,” she said.

In the book, Comey compares Mr. Trump to a mob boss and mocks the president's appearance.
