He’s baaaaack! Ousted FBI Director James Comey is writing a book, which will include his public service, including his final controversial months working for the Trump administration. The book will ensure that Comey will stay in the news for a long, long, long time.
The New York Times reports that Comey has signed a deal with the New York publisher Javelin. This news comes one month after reports that publishers were willing to offer Comey millions for a tell-all book.
New York Times: “Mr. Comey has been meeting with editors and publishers in New York in recent days, and is being represented by Keith Urbahn and Matt Latimer, partners at the literary agency Javelin. The book is expected to go to auction this coming week, and all the major publishing houses have expressed keen interest, Mr. Latimer said.”
“The book will not be a conventional tell-all memoir, but an exploration of the principles that have guided Mr. Comey through some of the most challenging moments of his legal career. Among those are his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server during a contentious election, and his recent entanglement with the president over the F.B.I.’s inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.”
Comey’s book will certainly prompt some early morning Twitter rants from Donald Trump because the former FBI director has been one of his biggest critics. I, for one, can’t wait to read this book.
