“It’s a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he’s had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration,” said Mr. Latimer, whose agency also represents Tucker Carlson and Donna Brazile. “It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership.”
Comey was initially reluctant to write a book, according to the report, but he decided that he “had something to say beyond a rehashing of his career highlights and low points, according to his agent.” His goal is to draw lessons about ethics and leadership from his service in government, which included clashes with the Bush administration over domestic surveillance.
Comey was fired in early May and testified before Congress soon after he leaked memos detailing conversations between himself and President Trump to the press via a friend.
