Former FBI director James Comey compared President Trump to a mob boss in a new ABC News interview that is set to air this weekend.

Comey, fired by Trump last May, has largely remained quiet about the President and his administration over the past 11 months, but it appears that’s about to change.

The interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, airing Sunday at 10 p.m. as part of a “20/20” special, is “going to shock the president and his team,” a source told Axios.

“How strange is it for you to sit here and compare the President to a mob boss?” Stephanopoulos asks the axed former bureau head in a promo released by the network.

  ‘This is not some tin-pot dictatorship’: Comey pushes back against Trump’s suggestion he be jailed The former FBI director told NPR that the president's tweets should not be considered normal.Former FBI director James B. Comey is pushing back against President Trump’s suggestion that he should be jailed, saying in a new interview that Trump’s pronouncements on Twitter pose a “great danger.

Updated | To coincide with the planned release of his book, James Comey will give his first television interview since President Donald Trump fired him as FBI director last May. Comey will appear on ABC with George Stephanopoulos, he and the network announced Friday.

For the first time since he was fired by President Trump , James Comey will sit down with ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos for an exclusive interview that will air during a primetime "20/20" special on April 15.

He also asks whether Comey believes the President obstructed justice. Comey does not speak in the clip.

The interview will be followed by appearances on “The View,” CNN, MSNBC and Fox News in the coming week as Comey promotes his new book, "A Higher Loyalty,” which is out on Tuesday.

Comey’s dismissal paved the way for the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is now overseeing the federal investigation into Russian election meddling and probing whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to sway the contest in Trump’s favor.

The Stephanopoulos sit-down will “certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump,” Axios added.

Comey spent five hours wih Stephanopoulos, according to Politico.

Jann Arden quoted in James Comey book

  Jann Arden quoted in James Comey book TORONTO - Words of wisdom attributed to Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden have made it into the new book by former FBI Director James Comey. The book's first chapter, titled "The Life," begins with a quote attributed to the eight-time Juno Award-winning artist. It reads: "To not think of dying, is to not think of living." Arden appears to have been caught off guard by the quote in the book, titled "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership." The book's first chapter, titled "The Life," begins with a quote attributed to the eight-time Juno Award-winning artist.

It’s hardly surprising that Comey ’s account of his private conversations with Trump , so redolent of implicit threats, should call to mind gangster movies where the mob boss asks for loyalty in exchange for protection.

Comey made waves last year when he spoke candidly in congressional testimony about his interactions with the President and told lawmakers he took detailed notes after each exchange.

Trump has railed against the former FBI boss, accusing him of lying.

“Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” Comey tweeted in March.

Seth Rogen says Stormy Daniels told him about alleged Trump affair a decade ago .
"When you ask a porn star who they've been sleeping with and the answer was Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing that (Stormy Daniels) could've said," Seth Rogen told Ellen DeGeneres.The co-founder of Hilarity for Charity told Ellen DeGeneres on her program Monday that he's been aware of the alleged tryst for about a decade. Daniels actually acted in two of Rogen's most popular flicks: Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. He explained to DeGeneres that it was easier to have adult film stars portray strippers than it was to have non-adult film actresses play them.
