The New York Times reported Saturday that Comey, who was dramatically fired by President Trump on May 9, is pursuing a book project about his career in public service – including the tumultuous three and half months spent under Trump before getting axed.
‘It’s a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he’s had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration,’ said Matt Latimer, a partner at the literary agency Javelin, which is shopping to book.

Both Latimer, and his Javelin associate Keith Urbahn, are veterans of GOP administrations and members of Congress, with Latimer serving as President George W. Bush’s deputy director of speech writing and as the chief speechwriter to former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
Urbahn worked for Rumsfeld as well, and was the first person to tweet the news that 9/11 terrorist Osama bin Laden had been killed in 2011. Urbahn also worked for now-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
Comey, according to an acquisition editor for a major New York publishing house, could get $10 million for the book, the insider told DailyMail.com in June.
