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.

  White House dismisses Comey as 'disgraced partisan hack' The White House's top spokeswoman blasted former FBI Director James Comey as a "disgraced partisan hack" on Friday as the administration seeks to discredit allegations he's made in a new book."This is nothing more than a poorly executed PR stunt by Comey to desperately rehabilitate his tattered reputation and enrich his own bank account by peddling a book that belongs in the bargain bin of the fiction section," press secretary Sarah Huc"This is nothing more than a poorly executed PR stunt by Comey to desperately rehabilitate his tattered reputation and enrich his own bank account by peddling a book that belongs in the bargain bin of the fiction section," press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told repo

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.

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.

Former FBI Director James Comey on Thursday said he couldn't answer whether the country would be better off if Hillary Clinton had defeated President Trump in the 2016 election.

"The question is, is he adher"That hypothetical is too hard for me to go back in time and answer," Comey said on CNN's "The Lead.
