Former FBI Director James Comey has hired former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to help him prepare for his possible role as a potential witness in an obstruction case against Donald Trump should charges be brought against the president by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, Talking Points Memo reports.
Conservative commentators, such as Fox News host Tucker Carlson, have attacked Comey as partisan and indecisive in his handling of the email scandal that dogged Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.
In 2003, Comey - then the deputy attorney general - appointed Fitzgerald as the special counsel to investigate the leaked identity of former Central Intelligence Agency operative Valerie Plame.
Mr. Comey's publisher, Flatiron Books, has ordered multiple reprints to meet demand, and now has more than a million copies in print.
At some stores, however, early sales of Comey's book were slower than Wolff's blockbuster.
Mueller, who was appointed after Comey was sacked by Trump in May of 2017, is tasked with investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump, according to Comey's telling, suggested that reporters who publish the leaks should be jailed, adding: "They spend a couple days in jail, make a new friend, and they are ready to talk". In an ABC News interview on Sunday, Comey said Trump was a risky and "morally unfit" leader doing "tremendous damage" to US institutional and cultural norms.
Previously, Trump denied the salacious allegations that Russian hookers defiled the bed in his hotel suite.
On Saturday, Donald Trump himself took to Twitter to accuse Comey of breaking the law.
