Ex-FBI director James Comey compares Trump to a Mafia boss at talk in Toronto

Comey, who just released his book A Higher Loyalty, also discussed the email scandal that dogged Hillary Clinton, the former Democratic presidential candidate who lost to Trump.

Former FBI director James Comey likened U.S. President Donald Trump to a self-serving Mafia boss Thursday during a talk in which he defended the decision to reopen the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the 2016 vote.

Speaking in Toronto, Comey lamented the current state of American politics, suggesting truth has all but disappeared from public discourse.
