Comey reportedly calls Trump a 'mob boss' in an upcoming interview

Former FBI director James Comey will use his revamped relationship with the left to sell his upcoming book

A preview of Comey's first of a series of interviews with ABCNews foreshadowed his characterization of Trump as a "mob boss".

It features a digital ad showing a parade of Democrats questioning Comey's suitability to be the nation's top cop before he was sent packing.

The focus will be on past Democratic criticism of Comey. "If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we'll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility".

The RNC is also preparing to set up a "war room" to monitor media appearances and respond in real time, according to the RNC plan.

The Republican National Committee is running point on the White House-approved campaign to undermine the credibility of James Comey ahead of his book tour, The Washington Post and CNN are reporting.

The opposition research website targets Comey directly with charges like accusations that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director is portraying "himself as an innocent victim fired by President Trump" and that "James Comey wants to portray himself as a non-partisan, by-the-book Boy Scout rather than a politically motivated Washington insider". The president has often taken to Twitter to attack Comey as a liar and a leaker.

The former Director spoke of things that he had never said before, the source told Axios news.

Comey, several concluded, orchestrated the leak in order to put pressure on the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate the president.

Comey's memoir is likely to cause an uproar with the president and his supporters and could further hurt Trump's relationship with his chief of staff - reports and rumors have for weeks indicated Trump could be looking to get rid of Kelly, and that Kelly's influence is waning inside the White House.
