In an extraordinary interview, former FBI director James Comey called Donald Trump “morally unfit to be president” and said he believed it was possible the Russians were holding compromising personal information over the head of the commander in chief.

Comey, appearing on ABC News, also called the president a serial liar who treated women like “meat,” and described him as a “stain” on everyone who worked for him.

Comey said his wife and most of his children supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and later took part in the Women’s March after Trump’s inauguration.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch again defended her handling of the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while Clinton was secretary of State, hours before Comey’s first television interview since testifying about their conversations on the matter.

Trump’s campaign has raised $10.1 million so far this year, and has stockpiled more than $28 million in available cash for a re-election campaign that is more than two years away. But more than 20 percent of the nearly $3.9 million Trump spent this year went to pay legal bills.

One of Trump’s lawyers, Joanna Hendon, filed papers asking a federal judge to block prosecutors from studying material seized by the FBI in a raid until Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, and the president have both had a chance to review those materials and argue which are subject to attorney-client privilege.

Faced with a sprawling investigation by the special counsel in Washington, Trump must also contend with an independent-minded office of federal prosecutors in his hometown, New York, who are investigating Cohen.

A lawyer for Stormy Daniels said the adult film actress will be in court today for the resumption of a hearing sought by Cohen.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon graces the cover of New York magazine this week, and in the accompanying article, her team suggests her campaign isn’t merely symbolic and she might actually give Gov. Andrew Cuomo a run for his money in September.

WFP leaders and their affiliates could pay a hefty price for shunning Cuomo in favor of Nixon over the objections of its union benefactors. Records show advocacy groups tied to the party have received millions in state funding and financial support from labor unions — in essence biting the hands that feed them.

So far, Democratic members of the Legislature have largely avoided picking sides in the Cuomo-Nixon primary battle.

Some New York progressive leaders hoping Bernie Sanders might help Nixon in her Democratic primary campaign against Cuomo are likely to be disappointed. A high-level Sanders source says it’s “very unlikely” the Vermont senator will get involved in the race.

The state Conservative Party executive committee voted Friday to recommend the party back Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro for governor over state Senate Deputy Majority Leader John DeFrancisco at its May nominating convention.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, a Bronx Democrat who typically has stayed out of state Senate politics, is prepared to try and help flip that chamber to Democratic control by getting involved to assist Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer in the upcoming April 24 special election.

If Mayer wins, Cuomo plans to unveil an agenda the next day for the rest of the session that he hopes will pressure Sen. Simcha Felder of Brooklyn to abandon the Republicans and return to the Democratic fold, a source familiar with the plan says.

Felder says the governor has already made a personal appeal, which he described as a “soft sell,” for him to consider rejoining the Democratic conference. The senator says he would consider it, but needs a “compelling reason” to depart the GOP side, and doesn’t want to be in the minority.
