George Stephanopoulos on Comey Interview: ‘It Really Did Stun Me’

By Chris Ariens 

Having first worked in politics and, for the last 21 years, in TV news, there’s not a lot that can surprise George Stephanopoulos. But his interview with former FBI director James Comey this past Monday did.

Good Morning America played the first clip from an hours-long interview which included President Trump considering requesting Comey investigate the so-called Steele Dossier. Comey went into detail about his own thoughts about the unsubstantiated dossier, which included an accusation of Trump being with prostitutes in Russia in 2013.

“That took my breath away,” Stephanopoulos said of Comey’s retelling of events. “I thought I knew this story. Collectively we weren’t really ready for everything that he was getting ready to say.”


After the interview aired (which you can watch below) Pres. Trump responded on Twitter:

ABC News’s special airs Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET. Comey’s book A Higher Loyalty comes out Tuesday.
