Two months before he would be named White House chief of staff, Kelly told Comey that he was "sick" over the firing, Comey writes in his new book A Higher Loyalty, according to a report in the Daily Beast.

"If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we'll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility", she said.

"James Comey's publicity tour is a self-serving attempt to make money and rehabilitate his own image", said McDaniel, the RNC chairwoman.

"...badly overstepped his bounds", the site quotes Hillary Clinton as saying in September 2017. Trump later said the Russian Federation investigation was on his mind when he made a decision to fire Comey.

It will be updated as Comey's book and interviews roll out, according to an RNC official. A teaser for the interview says Comey compares Trump to a "mob boss".

The conversation took place during the same private dinner on January 27, 2017, where Comey has claimed the president demanded "loyalty" - and just days after the publication of an intelligence dossier alleging that the Kremlin had a tape of Trump paying prostitutes to perform the dirty deed on a bed once occupied by President Obama.

A senior White House official disputed Comey's account of the call, which was reported a year ago by CNN, saying that Kelly briefly called the ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director to wish him luck and explain that he didn't know why he had been fired.

The digital ads will show several Democrats calling for Comey's resignation after he injected himself into the 2016 presidential race, including House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who is shown saying: "All I can tell you is the FBI Director has no credibility". Bob Corker laughed on Thursday when Business Insider asked him about lyincomey.com, and said he respected Comey's public service. Mrs Clinton's supporters believed that the investigation was politically motivated and aided Mr Trump's campaign.

Mr. Comey begins a national tour next week in support of his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership". "And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not".

Comey's account lands at a particularly sensitive moment for Trump and the White House.
