Comey Says Trump Is Like a 'Mob Boss' in Upcoming Interview

Trump fires back at Comey on Twitter, calls him 'untruthful slime ball'

Talking points prepared by the RNC and obtained by ABC News will be distributed to surrogates and allies of the president and are aimed at attacking what are called Comey's "misstatements and misconduct", contradictions and credibility.

The details of the response effort were first reported by CNN. The website's launch comes days before Comey is set to create a media sensation with a series of on-camera interviews across networks.

And any decent branding effort, in 2018, has to involve a website, doesn't it?

The nature of the interactions and any alleged directives shared between the White House and the key Department of Justice officials before the Comey dismissal is a part of special counsel Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Stephanopoulos also brought up Comey's critics who wanted him to put Hillary Clinton before a grand jury, as well as asking him whether Trump "was obstructing justice" and if the president should be impeached.

Comey also claimed in Senate testimony that he was defamed by the administration over their justification of his termination.

The GOP's talking points, according to CNN, include the assertion that "Comey has a long history of misstatements and misconduct" including 'bizarre decisions, contradictory statements and acting against Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation protocol'.

'How unusual is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss, ' Stephanopoulos asks, ' against a soundtrack of tense violin music.

In a teaser clip from an ABC interview with Comey set to air Sunday, "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos appears to react to Comey likening the president to a mafia don.
