James Comey was tasteless, lost credibility

James Comey

James Comey's new tell-all book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, has had quite a good week.

Macmillan originally printed 850,000 copies in anticipation of a runaway bestseller.

A Higher Loyalty was atop Amazon.com's bestseller list for several weeks before its release.

Reviews have been mostly favorable, with The New York Times calling the book "impassioned" and 'absorbing'. That surpassed Hillary Clinton's memoir, "What Happened", which sold 300,000 copies in its first week.

Wolff's book has sold almost 975,000 print copies, and Clinton's memoir has sold some 511,000 total print copies, according to NPD BookScan.

Time will tell whether Comey can match Wolff's sales.

The former national security adviser under President Clinton pleaded guilty to the unauthorized removal and retention of classified material from the National Archives.




The robust sales are a rejoinder to the headlines asserting that Comey's book tour has backfired.

The Trump White House continues to do an fantastic job helping writers sell books that slam the Trump White House.

"I've been embarrassed and ashamed by the way the Republican party has abandoned one of the two things that led me to consider myself a Republican in the 1980s when Ronald Reagan was president", Comey said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360° on Wednesday night.

At one point, a Fox News host hinted that bombing Syria could knock Comey's book out of the news cycle.

Tuesday's book party had themed drinks with names like "Redacted" and "Deep State". "He said he arrived in the morning, did events, then showered and dressed for the pageant at the hotel", and then left for the event, Comey wrote.

Through a spokeswoman, Fitzgerald confirmed that he "has been part of Mr. Comey's legal team since May 2017".

Comey argues that Trump does not make decisions on the basis of philosophical, religious or logical considerations, but simply to assuage the deficiencies of his own character and emotional makeup.
