In just a few days former FBI Director James Comey will be on television screens across America promoting his new book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. It is expected Comey goes after President Trump in the text and will no doubt do the same during a marathon of media interviews.
Ahead of the launch date, the Republican National Committee is playing offense and has launched a new website titled "Lyin' Comey."
The site, LyinComey.com, quotes a number of Democrats like Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slamming the FBI and Comey himself.
"May he's not in the right job," Pelosi is quoted as saying."
"[He] badly overstepped his bounds," a Clinton quote says.
Fox News has the scoop on the development:
“James Comey’s publicity tour is a self-serving attempt to make money and rehabilitate his own image,” an RNC official told Fox News. “Comey is a liar and a leaker, and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing. If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we’ll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility.”
The official told Fox News that the RNC has prepared a rapid response team to respond to claims made in Comey’s book, compiled a research team to fact check, and created a “war room” to monitor his appearances.
Comey was abrubtly fired by President Trump last year and has been unpopular on both sides of the political aisle.
