With his new book "A Higher Truth" set to be released, former FBI Director James Comey revealed new information about the so-called "pee tape" dossier involving Donald Trump. In response to an interview Comey gave with ABC, the president quickly lashed out on Twitter.

Trump on Comey

It was last year when Donald Trump made the controversial decision to fire James Comey as head of the FBI with the investigation into Russian election meddling heating up.

One of the big side stories involved in the investigation came from a dossier put together by spy Christopher Steele, which included information alleging that Trump spent time with Russian prostitutes, including the fact that the president engaged in curious sexual behavior. The "pee tape" was first reported by Buzzfeed, which was quickly denied by the White House. Fast forward to present day and James Comey sat down with George Stephanopoulos for an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" where he revealed that the tape in question could exist despite the president's denial.

In response to James Comey, Donald Trump quickly lashed out [VIDEO] in a pair of tweets on April 13.

"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR," Trump tweeted, claiming that everyone in Washington agreed that he deserved to be fired as FBI director. "He (Comey) leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted," the president added, before stating, "He lied to Congress under OATH."

In a follow up tweet, Donald Trump labeled James Comey as a "weak and untruthful slime ball." The commander in chief went on to say that Comey's handling of Hillary Clinton's private email server controversy as Secretary of State will gone down in history as a "botch job" and that it was an "honor" to fire him. As expected, those who oppose the president didn't waste anytime hitting back.

Within minutes of his tweetstorm over James Comey, Donald Trump faced massive criticism [VIDEO]. "Everyone but the guy that conned people out of their money with a Fake School, who repeatedly cheated on his wives is corrupt.

All the investigators are corrupt. Yeah that's the ticket! I have a fence to sell you at the border and Mexico will pay for it!" one tweet read.

"You are like a demon possessed .. lashing out hateful rhetoric and seething contempt.. You’ve were tempted by the greatest of evils and you failed .. SHAME SHAME SHAME," a Twitter user wrote. "Ahem . The biggest liar and leaker is our POTUS . You are the weak one who is making this country embarrassed and vulnerable. Where’s your taxes sir ? Afraid to show your money laundering?" a tweet wondered.

"Hey snowflake, you seem tittered. If you are so innocent, why are your panties in such a twist, Spanky?" a social media user wrote. "We the American people are calling for a total & complete shutdown of you and your administration until we can figure out what the hell is going on!" a follow-up tweet read.
