According to Axios in their AM newsletter they say that the interview was 5 hours long and it has been edited way down. Here is part of it. It can't be linked. My emphasis.

Quote:
Back in December, President Trump tweeted: "After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters - worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness."

Now, the FBI is getting its revenge. All at once, Trump is being pounded by the bureau and its alumni, with a three-pronged threat:

The broadest narrative comes from fired FBI director James Comey, who concludes his piercing, detailed attacks in "A Higher Loyalty," out Tuesday: "There is reason to believe this fire will leave the presidency weaker and Congress and the courts stronger, just as the forest fire of Watergate did." On Monday, Comey spent nearly five hours with ABC's George Stephanopoulos (airing at 10 tonight as a "20/20" special). Sources familiar with the Comey interview say ABC has held back some of his strongest news-making bites. A source present at the taping said Comey's comments will "shock the president and his team" and "add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump."

The clearest and most immediate threat, in the view of some White House aides, comes from the New York feds' investigation into Trump's longtime lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, who joined the Trump Organization in 2006. Trump advisers worry Cohen could serve as a Rosetta stone to the past decade of Trump's high-wire business dealings. The raid on Cohen's office has rattled Trump like no previous twist in the investigation.

Robert Mueller's investigation has the potential to yield embarrassing revelations about Trump's campaign, transition and presidency, whether clumsy shortcuts or something more. Trump lawyers say the White House turned over more than 20,000 pages of documents, and the campaign provided more than 1.4 million.

Why it matters: As Trump confronts complex international eruptions and prepares for a summit with North Korea, the FBI clearly has taken up residence in his head.

In your case..."open minded"??...I think not...

btw....Trump has nothing to do with the topic of Comey's book....FAIL!!
But you're a moron, and you've shown it time and time again, you get played all the time.
You trust Hannity, that says it all....

I guess Comey's interview was a snoozer. Although there are interesting things in the book about Loretta Lynch, and other things during the Obama administration. Did Stephy get into any of that?

If you couldnít be bothered to watch, then ignorance is your reward.

Since you have had plenty of time to comment on the interview itself, and so far have not done so, one can easily assume that you did not watch it. But are instead awaiting orders and talking points.
