Former FBI Director James Comey Signs Book Deal

The Associated Press reports:

Former FBI Director James Comey has a book deal. Flatiron Books told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Comey is writing a book about leadership and decision making that will draw upon his career in government.

Comey will write about experiences that made him the FBI’s best-known and most controversial FBI head in recent times, from his handling of the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server to allegations of ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Trump fired Comey in May and soon after told NBC News that he was angered by the FBI’s investigation into “this Russia thing with Trump and Russia,” which he called a fake story. Comey has since testified before Congress that Trump asked him to end an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn and kept memos about his meetings with the president.

The book is due next spring. Let’s hope for leaks.

    I sent him this pencil sharpener, in hopes he will write about his recent experiences.

      I wouldn’t touch that pencil for love or money.

  • I would assume that the book will not be not released until Trump is taken down. Comey would at least want to include this as an epitaph, er, I mean epilog.

  • Tawreos

    How long before Trump announces his book called “Why I fired Comey, And How It Is Crooked Hillary’s Fault”

    • Chucktech

      As soon as he finds suitably fawning, ghost-writing supplicant to write it for him.

  • Ninja0980

    I wonder if he would throw a temper tantrum over Hillary if he had to do it all over again.

    • thatotherjean

      I doubt that he would be able to stop himself.

  • Joe in PA

    His decision making.”

    Got it.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Pop-Up or Coloring?

  • another_steve

    Amazing how Comey has morphed from Bad and Evil Republican Operative (remember his anti-Hillary shenanigans during the campaign?) into Hero of the Free World.

    Hard to keep up, sometimes.

    i’m gonna wait for the broadway musical

  • The_Wretched

    Eh, these books tend to be great for back ground and have only minimal salacious leaky bits for the publisher to use for hyping. AND there’s the Mueller investigation. Comey will work to avoid causing problems for them.

    o/t

    let’s hope he’s going to self-deport

      “self-deport” … to Russia perhaps? Hmmm.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      so melania really is a illegal immigrant hooker/model?

  • crewman

    I didn’t like Comey during the Clinton email era. From what I could see, he seemed to be acting out of political motivations. But with what has come out since, that’s no longer my impression, and I have a lot of respect for him. I would be interested in reading something he had to say about leadership, regardless of whether it had anything to do with leaks, politics, etc.

    • iambu

      Agreed. I bet it’ll be a pretty fascinating read, regardless of one’s opinion of the man.

    Do you suppose that when Drumpf gets thrown in jail for corruption/collusion with Russia, that he will get a book deal, too? Probably, like OJ’s book it would have a title and storyline like “How I Would Have Done It”

  • HZ81

    I suggest “Why I Fucked Over the Nation by Throwing the Election to a Piece of Human Shit” as a title. Nice ring, right?

    Does that me the shit gibbon will be charged and arrested very soon? Otherwise he is still bind by the NDA, he will reveal nothing in the book.

  • Ken M

    LOL…just make sure its published as Non fiction.

  • Bad Tom

    I’ll read it. I plan to read Hillary Clinton’s book when it is published in September.
    ——-
    I read All the President’s Men, too, back in the day.

  • JWC

    that could be a story

  • Chucktech

    …Comey is writing a book about leadership and decision making that will draw upon his career in government.

    Yeah, that’s nice. I’ll skip over that part, thanks.

    …from his handling of the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server to allegations of ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

    THAT’S why I’ll read this book.

  • Jeffg166

    The only book from this administration that won’t be fiction.

    The only thing I need to know about you is the October surprise, and where the bodies are buried.

    Sounds like he’s decided to pretend nothing ever happened.

    In other news, several members of the Trump administration began funneling their assets to non-extradition countries while also releasing large amounts of urine from their bladders.
