Disgraced James Comey Considers Canceling Book Tour
James Comey is having a rough start to his book tour, to say the least.
The book that was supposed to discredit Trump and bring down his presidency for good is turning out to be a total flop.
One of the bumps in the road was that the same day Comey launched his book tour at Barnes and Nobles 11 Congressional lawmakers filed a criminal referral against him calling for his prosecution.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Florida, along with ten other colleagues sent the letter Wednesday to Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray criminally referring former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for their involvement in the investigations into President Trump and alleged violations of federal law.
FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whose anti-Trump text messages obtained by the DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, were also included in the referral.

In addition, the spotlight was again taken off of Comey’s talk on “ethical leadership” as a conservative activist, Laura Loomer, made a fool out of Comey during one of his Q & A’s.
Before Comey dived into the scripted questions, Loomer shouted from the audience,
“Hey Mr. Comey, how is it ethical to brief the President of the United States on an unverifiable and salacious dossier? And how is it ethical leadership to not tell him that his political opposition, Hillary Clinton, paid for it?”
And as Comey stood on stage in silence completely caught off guard, Loomer continued:
You are not an ethical leader. Today 11 lawmakers filed a criminal referral against you! You’re going to get prosecuted Comey! You’re going to get locked up.”
The video went viral raising questions on Comey’s so called “leadership.”
Then a few days later Comey’s memos were released to the public. In those memos, Comey was outed for lying and likely leaking classified information.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes upon the declassified release of the memos stated that:
“While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.”
Despite the memos’ declassification, some of the material was redacted, raising questions about whether Comey leaked classified information to a private citizen in the hopes of sparking a special prosecutor of the Russian investigation.
And president Trump tweeted in response to the memo release:
James Comey’s Memos are Classified, I did not Declassify them. They belong to our Government! Therefore, he broke the law! Additionally, he totally made up many of the things he said I said, and he is already a proven liar and leaker. Where are Memos on Clinton, Lynch & others?

But of course Comey felt hand sizes and Trump’s morality was more important than the pressing legal questions raised about his “ethics.”
It’s quite comical that a man like James Comey who has made a career on committing crimes and covering for others crimes who then try to create a book to make it seem like Trump is the unethical one.
We saw the same thing take place last year with Michael Wolff’s fictional account of the Trump White House in Fire and fury.
The left salivated over this new book that was also perceived as a smoking gun to discredit the president but in the end it ended up discrediting its author.
According to the Business Insider who reviewed the book:
Michael Wolff, the author of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” included a note at the start that casts significant doubt on the reliability of the specifics contained in the rest of its pages.
Several of his sources, he says, were definitely lying to him, while some offered accounts that flatly contradicted those of others.
But some were nonetheless included in the vivid account of the West Wing’s workings, in a process Wolff describes as “allowing the reader to judge” whether the sources’ claims are true.
Where is Michael Wolff now? Why isn’t he relevant anymore?
The man has completely disappeared. Wolff had his 15 minutes of fame and now he’s a nobody. Soon many on the Left will suffer his fate, particularly Comey.
Another indicator Comey’s tour is bound to be cut short is a survey conducted by SurveyMonkey and Axios that found 56 percent of participants believe that Comey is doing interviews to promote himself and his book rather than reveal the truth about the Trump administration.
That’s not good. And I suspect Comey may want to spend more time with his legal team soon.
While Comey hasn’t cancelled his book tour yet, the writing is on the wall. And it will be one more sign of the times for Leftists.
