RNC Running Point on Campaign to Discredit Comey

The RNC will employ a war room to monitor Comey's TV appearances and have a rapid response team poised to rebut every assertion that's critical of the president, the Post reports.

The website, branded "Lyin' Comey", revives several old quotes from Democrats criticizing Comey, whom Trump fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation previous year.

Comey also talks about his inner battle with how he handled the Clinton email investigation, even a talk he had with President Obama before he left office.

An interview with Mr Comey, in which he is thought to speak candidly about Mr Trump's behaviour and the Russian Federation investigation, will air on Sunday night in the US.

Republicans are attempting to portray Comey as a liar and political operative with no credibility.

Comey cautioned the President that any probe might "create a narrative" that the FBI was investigating him, the Post reports.

"I'm a germaphobe", Trump told Comey, according to the book, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Post.

Kelly added that he "intended to quit", Comey writes, and "said he didn't want to work for dishonorable people".

Comey's book, 'A Higher Loyalty, ' will be on sale next Tuesday and is already climbing the best-seller charts based on pre-orders.

The RNC has also launched two digital video campaign attack ads against Comey-one titled "Comey Not Credible, Just Ask Democrats", and another "Comey: A "Leaker" and 'Washington Insider'".

Comey recalls urging Kelly to stay in his job, which he did, arguing that "this president" especially needed principled public servants in his administration.

Doug Heye, a former RNC communications director, said the Republican effort shows Comey's publicity tour is "going to dominate news coverage".

"Comey is now set to make millions of dollars off this impending book tour all while trashing the President the whole way", said Sean. The dismissal led Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the probe.

"...badly overstepped his bounds", the site quotes Hillary Clinton as saying in September 2017. "There's no way I would let people pee on each other around me".
