Donald Trump can fire James Comey, he can lie about James Comey, he can threaten James Comey, but he just can’t seem to stop James Comey. That’s right, it’s time to get your popcorn ready, because the former FBI Director is writing a book about his own career, which is confirmed to include his bizarre and chaotic period of time working under Donald Trump.
James Comey’s book is an “exploration of the principles that have guided Mr. Comey through some of the most challenging moments of his legal career” according to the New York Times (source), which says that book publishers essentially begged Comey to write a book until he finally agreed.
Comey spent most of his career as a nearly anonymous public figure, despite being a U.S. Attorney and then the Deputy Attorney General and then finally the Director of the FBI. He only really came into mainstream public focus during the 2016 election, which he thoroughly botched, and its aftermath, which he tried to help clean up. And now he’s about to join the ranks of high profile authors.
There’s no timeframe yet on when his book will be released, but you might want to start working on that popcorn now.
