Today’s Distraction: James Comey’s Book

James Comey’s scandal and gossip book is now out (about a week earlier than planned), and it has all of the Villagers in a tizzy. While the details are still sort of sketchy, some juicy bits are leaking all over the place.

The LATimes headlines email thingie alerts us:

“Former FBI Director James B. Comey said he has a story to tell, and now it’s coming out — even though his book, “A Higher Loyalty,” isn’t being released until next week. In it, he criticizes President Trump as unethical and “untethered to truth,” calls Trump’s leadership “ego driven and about personal loyalty,” and even has a remark about the president’s hand size (“smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so”). Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and has called him a “showboat” and a “liar.” On Thursday night, the GOP made clear where it stood, by tweeting out a link to a website called “Lyin’ Comey.”

The Reliable Sources email thingie:

The banner on “CNN Tonight” right now: “JAMES COMEY IS GOING TO WAR WITH DONALD TRUMP.” Portions of Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” began to leak out on Thursday… The NYPost published quotes, then the AP, the WashPost… So some of the highlights are now out…

“Trump raised ‘golden showers thing’ with Comey”

— “James Comey slams ‘the forest fire that is the Trump presidency’

— “Obama reassured Comey after election amid email investigation controversy”

But the best take? Brian Stelter speaks to Michael Wolff:

“At The Hollywood Reporter’s annual NYC party on Thursday night, I asked Michael Wolff: Will Comey out-sell “Fire and Fury?” The response was classic Wolff: “He can’t possibly sell more books than me.”

While all of this is exciting, and you know, the Pee Tape is now kinda confirmed in a weird way, I think we still need to keep an eye of the actual investigation from Mr. Mueller. I think that there’s a lot more there than bed wetting.

    So does he show any remorse for handing Cheeto Benito the election in this one, or do we have to wait for the sequel?

    I met Mueller and Comey, separately, when they were U.S. Attorneys. Mueller was all about business. Comey even then had the air of a celebrity, holding court at dinner. I’m glad Mueller is leading the investigation. Comey is too concerned about his image and place in history, which 45* and the Republicans have already exploited. On the other hand, without Comey, we wouldn’t have Mueller.
