The amazing critique comes in his new book, A Higher Loyalty, which is not due to hit bookshelves until April 17, but which was exclusively obtained ahead of publication by Radar.
Comey writes: “I see no evidence that a lie ever caused Trump pain, or that he ever recoiled from causing another person pain, which is sad and frightening.
“Without all those things – without kindness to leaven toughness, without a balance of confidence and humility, without empathy, and without respect for truth – there is little chance President Trump can attract and keep the kind of people around him that every president needs to make wise decisions.
He continued, “That makes me sad for him, but it makes me worry for our country.”
Comey then explained how Trump’s presidency "threatens much of what is good in this nation."
“We all bear responsibility for the deeply flawed choices put before voters during the 2016 election, and our country is paying a high price: this president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values," he wrote. “His leadership is transactions, ego driven, and about personal loyalty."
He ended the criticism with, “We are fortunate some ethical leaders have chosen to serve and stay at senior levels of government, but they cannot prevent all of the damage from the forest fire that is the Trump presidency. Their task is to try to contain it.”
