The HILL Opinions: Comey's book tour is a colossal mistake [View all]

From unqualified reports that Comey got an immunity, to 2 Repug Congressmen taking license to receive by claiming McCabe lied to Coney (about unauthorized releasing info to the press) - it's hard to know - what to believe.

Former FBI Director Coney has a new book out, which he is doing a "tour" of.

Question is - should James Coney - be doing so????

Below is the Op-ed via "The HILL"


OPINION | WHITE HOUSE
.
BY JAMES GAGLIANO, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR 576


The views expressed by contributors are their own and not the view of The Hill


Announcements of scheduled appearances for the widely anticipated $850-to-attend book tour by fired FBI Director James Comey foreshadow a much-ballyhooed return to the public square. Media outlets eagerly booked the former director, and his opus, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” briefly jumped to No. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list.

But should Comey — a central witness in special counsel Robert Mueller probe — be making public his version of events which will certainly differ significantly with what President Trump, the central target in the special prosecutor’s probe, has repeatedly stated?

Comey was humiliatingly removed by the president last May and enjoyed a brief period of bipartisan sympathy for the disgraceful manner in which he was dispatched. The FBI’s seventh director learned of his termination via televised news reports while appearing before an FBI audience in Los Angeles. This is not the manner with which career public servants should ever be separated from service. Yet, with the current president, it has become de rigueur.
