Comey hopes Hillary reads his book
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.’”
