NEW YORK (AP) - Noting that the FBI is â€śunder intense scrutiny,â€ť James Comeyâ€™s publisher is moving up the release date of his memoir â€śA Higher Loyalty.â€ť
Flatiron Books told The Associated Press on Wednesday that is moving up publication from May 1 to April 17. Flatiron President Bob Miller and Publisher Amy Einhorn say that there was demand for the former FBI director to be heard amid an â€śurgent conversationâ€ť about the bureau. President Donald Trump and his supporters have repeatedly criticized the investigation into his campaignâ€™s alleged ties with Russian officials.
Comey was fired by Trump last May. The president initially cited Comeyâ€™s handling of the probe into Democratic rival Hillary Clintonâ€™s emails. He later told NBCâ€™s Lester Holt that he was thinking of â€śthis Russia thing.â€ť
