Former FBI Director James Comey has signed a multimillion-dollar book deal with Flatiron Books to write a “yet to be named” book on leadership.

President Donald Trump fired Comey on May 9 2017, had led the FBI for more than three years and also worked as a lawyer in the Justice Department and as a lawyer.

In a statement released, President of Flatiron and publisher Bob Miller said the book is expected to disclose some experience from Comey’s career, how he handled the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the allegations of ties between Russia and Trump’s presidential campaign.


“His book promises to take us inside those extraordinary moments in our history, showing us how these leaders have behaved under pressure, by doing so, Director Comey will give us unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in leadership itself.”

Comey’s book is set to be released in 2018, but not before it undergoes pre-publication review, because of Comey’s previous FBI employment.

Comey has since testified before Congress that Trump asked him to end an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael T Flynn and kept memos about his meetings with the president.
