The Republican National Committee is sending out a furry costumed lion to stalk James Comey on his book tour. The furry stalker is just the GOP’s latest attempt to discredit the Trump-fired FBI director, who has been making regular rounds on the network news to promote his new book, including a much-touted appearance on ABC News.
In addition to the lion stunt, the RNC has recently launched a website that claims to set the record straight about Comey who, according to the webpage “wants to portray himself as a non-partisan, by-the-book Boy Scout rather than a politically motivated Washington insider.”
