[Ed. – And here we would have thought he’d title the book ‘What Happened, Too.’]
Fired FBI director James Comey began promoting his forthcoming book on Thursday with an aw-shucks one-liner that recalled the most memorable moment of his blockbuster summertime congressional hearing.
‘Lordy I hope there are pictures,’ Comey tweeted.
During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in June, he was asked to comment on President Donald Trump‘s suggestion that recordings might exist to confirm what the two men had talked about during a few now-famous White House meetings.
‘Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!’ Trump had tweeted in May.
‘Lordy I hope there are tapes,’ Comey told senators a month later.
Comey’s book, titled ‘A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,’ won’t hit stores until May 1.
The name itself is a play on another newsworthy snippet from the saga that led to Comey’s firing.
The former lawman said in a prepared statement to the Senate that Trump had pressed him for ‘loyalty’ during a sit-down dinner just one week after the president took office.
