  • COMEY CASHES IN: Disgraced FBI Boss's New Book OUTSELLING Clinton, Wolff

A long-awaited US Justice Department internal watchdog report on former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey's public disclosures on Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state and whether Federal Bureau of Investigation employees leaked information to try to hurt her 2016 presidential bid is expected to be issued next month. The book's publishing company announced Tuesday that sales topped 600,000 copies in its opening week.

James Comey's new tell-all book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, has had quite a good week.


That night, according to the "New York Times", Mr Trump flew to Moscow on a Bombardier Global 5000 private jet owned by American businessman Phil Ruffin.

The report from Michael Horowitz, the department's inspector general, arises from an investigation he launched about a week before Republican President Donald Trump, who defeated Democrat Clinton in the election, took office in January 2017. He said Trump is "morally unfit to be president" and said he believed it was possible the Russians had compromising personal information about the president. Its first week sales, which include pre-orders, well exceed those of "Fire and Fury". Thanks to unusually large e-book sales for a nonfiction release and a rush to get hardcover copies back onto shelves, "Fire and Fury" had sold more than 500,000 copies within two weeks and well over 1 million copies after three weeks. The book's publisher, Flatiron Books, said more than a million copies are in print and that it has gone to press several times. The demand for "Fire and Fury" seemed to catch many people, including Trump, by surprise.
