Republicans plan aggressive response to James Comey’s book tour

Republicans plan aggressive response to James Comey’s book tourRepublicans are planning on pushing back hard against James Comey as he begins his publicity tour next week, hoping to undermine the former FBI director as he embarks on a national book tour. A battle plan to push back, first reported by CNN, includes several actions including paying for digital advertising, sending out talking points to Republicans across the country, and rebranding Mr Comey as “Lyin’ Comey” — an obvious reference to President Donald Trump’s taste for giving snappy nicknames to his rivals. The website set up by Republicans features bipartisan criticism of Mr Comey in the past, including quotes from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in which the three members of Congress suggested Mr Comey was no longer fit to be the head of the FBI.
