President Donald Trump told former FBI Director James Comey that he had "serious reservations" about the judgment of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to leaked memos obtained by the Associated Press.
Comey spoke with CNN's Jake Tapper following the release of his book.

The former FBI director said sending the letter had been the right thing to do.

Representative Jim Jordan previously claimed Hillary Clinton's campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.
The Justice Department inspector general began a review of Comey and McCabe in 2017.
"Donald Trump's presidency threatens much of what is good in this nation," the ex-FBI chief writes.
