Inside the GOP plan to discredit Comey

RNC launches 'LyinComey' website to discredit former FBI director

Comey Says Trump Is Like a 'Mob Boss' in Upcoming Interview

Comey's tome is expected to behighly critical of President Donald Trump, who fired him past year. Two months before he would be named White House chief of staff, Kelly told Comey that he was "sick" over the firing, Comey writes in his new book A Higher Loyalty, according to a report in the Daily Beast. ABCNews sources in the room with Comey at the time of the taping told Axios the interview would "shock the president and his team" and that it would "certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump".

Comey says he warned Trump an investigation might "create a narrative that we were investigating him personally", the former top G-man writes.

The Comey memoir, "A Higher Loyalty", is set to be released next Tuesday.

At the bottom of the homepage, the RNC trumpets "Obstruction?" noting that Comey "may" use his book tour to "push the phony narrative" that Trump obstructed the Russian Federation investigation. "I said it was up to him".

The exhaustive plan to attack Comey illustrates how seriously Trump's allies are taking the memoir and a round of television interviews Comey is set to give, including on CNN starting next week followed by a town hall April 25.


Hillary Clinton's poll numbers plummeted after Mr. Comey's October surprise, which left her campaign virtually defenseless as F.B.I. agents reviewed her email messages.

The president replied that he "might be right" - but kept asking him to consider the idea, and said he would as well, according to Comey.

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.

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and prominent Trump ally, told Fox News that Comey is "hawking a book" to make money, not to get "to the heart of the truth".

Lyincomey.com focuses on the last point, in particular, featuring quotes from prominent Democrats in 2016 - including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - that explicitly questioned Comey's credibility and suggested he step down as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
