The former FBI Director sits down with ABC's George Stephanopolis, in his interview Comey alleges President Trump at times resembled a mob boss. He also explains why he announced that the FBI was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails on a government server, a week before the 2016 presidential election.

Hilary Hagenbach from San Francisco's Republican party will watch but believes Comey is no hero.

"In my opinion, he has no moral backbone, it's hard to hear what he is saying and take it as fact," said Hagenbach.

President Trump did not hold back his criticism of Comey on Twitter, calling him a leaker and even suggesting that he should be in prison.

"I think the tweets the president has been making our beneath the dignity of the office of President of the United States," said Congresswoman Pelosi.
