After reading this, you’re going to hope that President Donald Trump hires you – then follows that up with a high-profile termination.
As it turns out, hearing the words “you’re fired” is just a tad more lucrative for those in government than those on “The Apprentice.” Originally an enemy of the Left, who believed that he was trying to compromise the Hillary Clinton campaign by doing his job in investigating her, former FBI Director James Comey has quickly proven himself to be anything but. We now know that he’s personally responsible for leaking information, and applied a standard of scrutiny to Donald Trump that he never applied to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
While Comey may face some legal challenges as a result of his actions in leaking information, he has a hefty payday awaiting him when all that trouble is sorted out.
According to the Daily Mail, when California Senator Kamala Harris thanked fired FBI director James Comey for testifying as a ‘private citizen’ in the Senate intelligence hearing into Russian interference, his response was, ‘I’m between opportunities right now.’
It was a joking reference to being out of work since Presidential Trump told him, ‘You’re fired!’.
When Harris responded, ‘I’m sure you’ll have decent opportunities [in the future’], she didn’t know how right she was.
If the publishing world has anything to say about it, the nation’s ex-top cop, 56, will be a multimillionaire ten times over from the book deal major publishers are offering to pay up front for his memoir – a whopping $10 million,
It’s a sum right up there with the kind of advances paid to the Clintons – although maybe not a high as the Obamas – and the kind of royalty money generated by Comey’s nemesis Donald Trump’s many books.
‘Jim Comey’s story has everything, from White House intrigue to possible corruption and law breaking. His explosive story makes ‘West Wing’ and ‘House of Cards’ on a par with Mister Rogers,’ an acquisition editor for a major New York publishing house told DailyMail.com
‘When his proposal hits my desk, I’ve already been authorized to offer $10 million.’
Not only that, but the publisher of another key player in the book world revealed that major Hollywood producers are already lining up to make the torn-from-the-headlines blockbuster movie about Comey’s life and his attempt to unseat the president.
Well, a movie deal certainly seems like a bit of a stretch. While we can’t exactly see the American public line up to purchase tickets for a James Comey-themed film years from now once most people have forgotten who he is, the book deal is much more certain.
