Former FBI Director James Comey is set to release his new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” on April 17, but excerpts have already been leaked.
CNN obtained a copy of the book, and Comey explains that Trump wanted him to investigate one of the allegations included in a dossier about Trump’s connections to Russia. Comey writes, “He brought up what he called the ‘golden showers thing.'”
Trump was accused of being involved with Russian prostitutes, having them urinate on each other on a bed. The dossier alleged that Kremlin had a tape of the dirty deed.
“It bothered him if there was ‘even a one percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true,” Comey writes. “He just rolled on, unprompted, 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. I said it was up to him.”Andrew Harrer-Pool/Getty Images
Comey added, “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?”
Trump allegedly wanted Comey to look into the matter to prove that it was false to his wife, Melania.
Comey quoted Trump in the book saying, “I’m a germaphobe. There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way.”
