"Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe," Trump tweeted.

"In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!"

The comments come after Comey said in a recent interview that his assumption that Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, would win the election was a factor in decisions he made regarding the investigation into her private email server.

Comey said his decision to tell Congress shortly before the election that the FBI was reviewing new emails regarding the probe into Clinton's private email server was influenced by the fact he assumed Clinton would win.

"It must have been. I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I’m sure that it was a factor,” Comey said during the interview on ABC News.

Trump's attack comes after excerpts of Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," were released last week.

In another tweet on Sunday, Trump said "big questions" are not answered in Comey's "badly reviewed" book. 

On Friday, Trump ripped Comey as a "LEAKER & LIAR" who "should be prosecuted."
