During the interview, Comey also said that his decision to announce shortly before the election that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was going to reopen the case was influenced by his belief that Clinton would beat Trump and his desire to make sure that the election results were viewed as legitimate.
Mr Trump's adviser Kellyanne Conway accused Mr Comey of peddling a "revisionist version of history" and sinking into the "gutter" with petty comments about the size of Mr Trump's hands and the length of his tie.
These issues were discussed [VIDEO] during a heated April 16 edition of "New Day" on CNN with Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway joining host #Chris Cuomo.
In case you didn't follow, here's what Conway said: "This guy swung an election. I don't think so, '" she said. His people in his household wanted the other person to win.
FORMER FBI director James Comey has called Donald Trump "morally unfit" to be president and said the U.S. leader treats women like "pieces of meat". "This misleading headline should include an eye roll and question mark", Conway wrote, while attaching an ABC News article with a headline claiming he she attacked Comey for swinging the election. "I don't think so".
She tried to walk the comment back in a later appearance on CNN, telling Chris Cuomo that Clinton was already set to lose the election and that Comey's announcement had no bearing on her doomed campaign. "I don't know. These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible", said Comey, who was sacked by Trump on May 9, 2017.
Trump was referring to a July 2016 recommendation by Comey that Clinton not be charged in relation to her practice of using a private email server while secretary of state. "It's possible", said Comey.
