Exclusive: James Comey to give first interview to ABC News' George Stephanopoulos

The former FBI director was fired by President Trump last May.

In “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey shares as-yet-unheard anecdotes about some of the highest-stakes situations in the past two decades of American government -- including the 2016 presidential campaign and his ultimate firing -- and describes how his core beliefs shaped his decisions.

Last week, Comey tweeted out a picture of him taping the audiobook, with the caption, “Lordy, this time there will be a tape. Audio book almost finished.”
