James Comey’s Book Will Fetch Top Dollar From Eager Book Publishers
The former FBI director is writing a book and publishers are lining up with offers.
The former head of the FBI will soon be an author—a very rich one.
James Comey is writing a book about his tenure as FBI director, including his brief stint under the Trump Administration. He is expected to get an 8-figure advance for the much-anticipated title.
Aside from his televised congressional testimony, the former FBI director hasn’t made any public comments since he was fired by President Donald Trump in May. All the major publishing houses have expressed strong interest as it goes to auction this week, the New York Times reports.
Comey met spent with editors and publishers in New York last week to discuss his upcoming book, which will not be a tell-all memoir. Instead, it will focus on the principles that guided his career at the FBI. The former director will expound upon his decision making during the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email and the Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“It’s a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he’s had throughout his career,” Comey’s agent said to the New York Times. “It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership.”
