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

  • James Comey says President Donald Trump 'untethered to truth' in new book

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".

In recent weeks, Trump has continued to attack Comey on Twitter, and Comey has suggested he will have his say through his book.

The Comey interview left people in the room stunned - he told George things that he's never said before. "One chair for George, one for me".

The "Lyin' Comey" website also portrays him as a politically motivated Washington insider.

As part of its effort, the RNC is also distributing talking points to Trump surrogates to further its case against Comey.

Other Democrats whose past quotes are included on the website include Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., ("I do not have confidence in [Comey] any longer"), Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., ("The FBI director has no credibility.") and Sen.
