Former FBI director James Comey has gone from being reviled by the Left for allegedly costing Hillary Clinton to being a liberal folk hero.
So how did he pull off such an amazing trick?
Because President Donald Trump canned him for being bad at his job. That means Comey must be great!
Beyond having the good fortune of being another example in a long line of liberal hypocrisy, Comey’s personal fortunes are set to rise substantially.
Newser shares the details on what the beacon of truth, justice and the American way has coming down the pike.
The former FBI director has signed a $2 million deal for a book that will explore “what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions,” publisher Flatiron Books tells NPR.
To read between the lines, perhaps Comey’s pals are tiring of being tasked with heading to the media to defend their friend and point out what a noble fella he really is.
Comey’s now going to go ahead and do that himself.
That will mean taking a look at the “highest-stakes situations” of Comey’s career, including the FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and allegations that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia, which ultimately led to Comey’s firing, per the Guardian.
Interesting. Instead of just sharing confidential information with his friends that’s conveniently leaked to the media, Comey is just going to lift the curtain up and spill his guts while cashing a hefty paycheck.
His agent tells the New York Times that Comey is “hard at work” on the yet-untitled book, due out next spring, and Flatiron adds that he’ll “share yet-unheard anecdotes from his long and distinguished career.”
If Comey releases his book with dirt on Trump, will you read it? Vote in our national poll now!
Yet-unheard? We’ll believe that when we see it.
In fairness to Comey, few folks would turn down $2 million to put pen to paper for a little brain dump.
That being said, can it not be spun as if he’s somehow doing this for altruistic purposes? That’s almost as nauseating as the fact that he’s now viewed as a folk hero.
