James Comeys new memoir is already a pre-publication media hit, but the former FBI directors tell-all assault on President Donald Trump also poses major risksnot only for Comeys personal reputation but for the wider Russia investigation he helped launch.
Trump and his allies bombarded Comey with insults Friday, targeting his credibility and seeking to undermine his image as a nonpartisan law enforcement professional. On Twitter Friday, Trump called Comey an untruthful slime ball, while White House press secretary Sarah Sanders branded him a discredited partisan hack. Other critics accused Comey of cashing in on his celebrity to an unseemly degree.
But far more significant could be the implications of Comeys written words and upcoming media interviews for special counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe.
His book, A Higher Loyalty, represents an official statement on key parts of the federal Russia probeincluding the question of whether Trump may have sought to obstruct justice, a question Mueller is investigating. Legal experts warn that Comeys own words could complicate court proceedings or a Congressional impeachment debate triggered by Muellers findings.

Another good article Drudge can ignore. Drudge’s page is now almost 100% anti Trump and verges on being pro Syrian at this point.
If your adversary is making a fool of himself, let him.
He is revealing what slimy little creep he really is. Even msm is inferring he looks petty.
We lost Drudge a year ago right about the time Trump called to end the trannys in the military. Draw your own conclusions.
Maybe his book and Michelle Obamas memoir (in November) will race to the bottom of best sellers.
I’m sure George Soros will purchase a few million copies.
“Trump called Comey an untruthful slime ball,
Best President evah!
The problem with Michelle's likely book buyers? Great difficulty in reading English...she better put a ton of pictures in it.
Refresh my memory. When did Comey ever have such an image?
It wasn't that long ago that the Democrat media complex was denouncing him as a Trump stooge who cost Hillary the election. He became a hero only after Trump fired his $orry @$$.
When did Comey ever have such an image?////
Nowadays “images” are media manufactured illusions.
Thanks E. Pluribus Unum. First Vox, now Politico? he'll wind up wishing it had been Arkancide.
Go to The Liberty Daily!
Anyone who buys Comey’s book is a fool and a sucker.
I hope the lying SOB winds up in prison....for a very long time. He has a superiority complex...and the only way is down.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the best thing that ever happened to Trump, including becoming a billionaire, getting elected President of the United States and marrying the only super model that gets better looking with age.
Sarah’s words are like the sword of truth.
We are so fortunate to have her on our side.
I always loved her dad, but thought he was a bit of a Gomer Pyle. Now that I’ve gotten to know his daughter, I’m giving Mike kHuckabee a second look - I see that I underestimated Mike. What a decent and respectable man he is; so honest and clear, in both word and deed.
He and the mother deserve a hell of a lot of credit for producing such a force of nature as Sarah.
Three cheers to Sarah Sanders - I hereby nominate her as the first female POTUS.
Is Comey’s book being published by Marvel or DC and does he wear a cape ?
Drudge went to the Dark Side quite some time ago.
Anti Trump=anti America.
I knew Jim Comey back when he was U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. He did have a pretty decent reputation as a straight arrow back then. Something in Jim after President Bush promoted him to NY DA, and the rest not subsequently to deputy AG while Mueller was head of FBI. I don’t recognize this Jim Comey. He is Exhibit A of what comes from breathing the noxious fumes of the Swamp.
