Former FBI Director James Comey plans to release a new book on Jan. 12, 10 days before the presidential inauguration, that will reportedly focus on the politicization of the Justice Department under President Donald Trump, who fired him in 2017.
The book will be called "Saving Justice: Truth, Transparency, and Trust," reports Axios, and follows Comey's New York Times bestseller, "A Higher Loyalty."
According to a press release from Comey's publisher, Flatiron Books, Comey also discusses his career in New York prosecuting mobsters. In his last book, the former FBI director compared Trump to a mob boss.
"From prosecuting mobsters as an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of New York in the 1980s to grappling with the legalities of anti-terrorism work as the Deputy Attorney General in the early 2000s to, of course, his tumultuous stint as FBI director beginning in 2013, Comey shows just how essential it is to pursue the primacy of truth for federal law enforcement," Flatiron's press release about the upcoming book says.
In recent years, Comey has written opinion pieces and posted on Twitter, but has refused several invitations for television interviews, reports Axios.
Comey has remained under fire, however, including last week, when Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said he and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe can expect to be called to testify concerning the origins of the Russia probe in September.
Graham says he is planning “multiple, in-depth congressional hearings regarding all things related to Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI's nickname for its investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
