ABC aired the one-hour James Comey’s interview with ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos tonight. Here are some links to videos, analysis and transcripts.

While ABC aired one hour of its conversation with Mr. Comey, it had conducted a five-hour interview with him. The full transcript is available at abcnews.go.com/…

A few excerpts —

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: And then unprompted, he brings up the golden shower again.

JAMES COMEY: Correct, yeah. He brings it up and says he may want me to investigate it to prove that it didn’t happen. And then he says– something that distracted me. ‘Cause he said, you know, “If there’s even a 1 percent chance my wife thinks that’s true, that’s terrible.”

And I– and I remember thinking, “How could your wife think there’s a 1 percent chance you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?” I’m a flawed human being, but there is literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true. So what kind of marriage to what kind of man does your wife think there’s only a 99 percent chance you didn’t do that?

The closing statements –

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth. Is Donald Trump unfit to be president?

JAMES COMEY: Yes. But not in the way m– I often hear people talk about it. I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who’s tracking conversations and knows what’s going on. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president.

A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds. And that’s not a policy statement. Again, I don’t care what your views are on guns or immigration or taxes.

Expect Trump’s raging tweets to surface sometime soon …
