Comey: Kelly Called Trump "Dishonorable" for Firing Me

James Comey testifying before the Senate last year

President Donald Trump's allies are preparing an extensive campaign to fight back against James Comey's publicity tour, trying to undermine the credibility of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director by reviving the blistering Democratic criticism of him before he was sacked almost a year ago.

Kelly called Comey within minutes of the firing and made an "emotional" offer to resign as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, according to an excerpt from the upcoming book "A Higher Loyalty", reported The Daily Beast.

"...badly overstepped his bounds", the site quotes Hillary Clinton as saying in September 2017.

"I don't know James Comey, but I'm certainly not someone who would have any desire to criticize or bring him down", he said.

Comey's memoir, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", which will be officially released on April 17, is expected to share "never-before-told experience from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career".

Doug Heye, a former RNC communications director, said the Republican effort shows Comey's publicity tour is "going to dominate news coverage".

"I think [Comey's] trying to sell a book", Graham said.

In recent weeks, Trump has continued to attack Comey on Twitter, and Comey has suggested he will have his say through his book. The talking points call Comey's credibility into question by focusing on what the RNC calls his "long history of misstatements and misconduct".

He also asks whether Comey believes the President obstructed justice.

The political contradictions surrounding Comey are underscored by how such a central part of the Republican plan is built around reminding Americans of how Democrats had disdain for him, particularly those from the Clinton campaign.

None of the answers were revealed in the clip but Comey's first major interview following his dismissal by Trump almost a year ago could very well lead to another Twitter outburst from the president against Comey. He previously served as a US attorney for the Southern District of NY, and the USA deputy attorney general in the George W. Bush administration.
