James Comey visits Seattle on book tour Sunday

Former FBI Director James Comey will make an appearance at a Seattle book tour event Sunday.

Former FBI Director James Comey will bring his book tour to Seattle on Sunday with a sold-out event hosted by Elliott Bay Book Company and Seattle University.

The venue, Campion Ballroom, fits around 700 people, according to organizers.

Media will not be allowed to cover the event, per Comey’s publisher.

In his tell-all book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, Comey details private interactions with President Donald Trump. Comey, who was fired by Trump last year, compares the president to a mob boss and blasts Trump for being “untethered to the truth.”
