WATCH: Donald Trump Admits He Believed He’d Lose Presidency If James Comey Wasn’t Fired

Donald Trump, faced with accusations of misusing his presidential power to get rid of anyone who might hold him accountable, alternates between denial and open admission. In a Fox News interview Sunday evening, he leaned into admission, telling Mark Levin that if he hadn’t fired Comey, he might not be on the show now, advertising a book pf photos from his presidency.

Trump is currently making the rounds promoting his new book, which is a collection of photos, some of which he says he’s captioned personally. He appeared Sunday night on Levin’s show, where the conversation drifted to Comey, the former FBI Director who Trump removed, which Comey says came after he refused to call a stop to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In this interview, Trump is very clear about his reasoning: “I don’t think I could have survived if they didn’t fire him.”

Comey has since testified before Congress about Trump’s interference in the investigation. A transcript via LawFare Blog shows the former director answering questions about the momo from the then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, which has been used as evidence that Comey was fired for reasons related to the investigation of Hillary Clinton, rather than to his refusal to protect Trump from investigation.

However, the interview above seems to belie the claims that memo was set forth to reinforce, as Trump is very clear that firing Comey was a necessary step for him to maintain his presidency.
