GOP slams 'Lyin' Comey' ahead of anti-Trump book tour

Former FBI Director James Comey reveals in a new book why President Donald Trump wanted him to investigate the most salacious claim made in the infamous Steele dossier. The former FBI director's book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, will share his side of the story about his firing, and will likely provide fuel for claims that Trump obstructed justice when he reportedly asked Comey to drop an investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, asking for the director's "loyalty" instead.
The source said Comey's comments, in his first interview since being fired by President Trump last May, will generate headlines and "certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump".
Comey says he warned Trump an investigation might "create a narrative that we were investigating him personally", the former top G-man writes. Republicans will argue that Comey "repeatedly usurped" the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and violated protocol by "publicly acknowledging the existence of ongoing FBI investigations".
Trump did not want his wife, Melania, believing the allegation was true, the president said. "He's going to seemingly everywhere".
