Comey hopes Hil­lary reads his book

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dou­glas Ernst

For­mer FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey says it would be a small vic­tory if Hil­lary Clin­ton read his book and came away think­ing he was an “hon­est id­iot” in­stead of just a run-of-the-mill id­iot.

The man who Mrs. Clin­ton has blamed for her 2016 elec­tion loss to Pres­i­dent Trump wants “A Higher Loy­alty: Truth, Lies and Lead­er­ship,” to be added to her read­ing list.

Mr. Comey said for an in­ter­view pub­lished Mon­day that his book elu­ci­dates his han­dling of the for­mer sec­re­tary of state’s email server scan­dal.

“I even hope that Hil­lary Clin­ton at least reads those parts of the book, be­cause I think she will walk away say­ing, ‘You know what? I still think that guy is an id­iot, but, you know, he’s kind of an hon­est id­iot, ” Mr. Comey told USA To­day. “He’s try­ing to do the right thing here.’”
