In his new book, Saving Justice: Truth, Transparency and Trust, former FBI chief James Comey writes President Donald Trump should not be prosecuted once he leaves the White House no matter how much evidence has been amassed against him, reports The Guardian.
Comey’s second book insists that the next U.S. attorney general, under Joe Biden, should not “pursue a criminal investigation of Donald Trump … no matter how compelling the roadmap left” by the special counsel Robert Mueller, or “how powerful the evidence strewn across his history of porn stars and financial fraud.”
Comey was fired by Trump in May 2017, an act that prompted Mueller’s appointment to investigate Russian election interference and links between the president and Moscow.
His opinion is likely to surprise many — perhaps including Trump himself — as Comey has emerged as a powerful critic of Trump and has been the frequent target of threats and insults from the 45th president. The book is scheduled to be published on January 12.
