“Speak or conceal — both terrible options,” he writes inside the book, which will be coming out on Tuesday. “No matter what we found, in which act of concealment might be catastrophic to the integrity of the F.B.I. along with the Department of Justice. Put in which way, the choice between a ‘actually bad’ option along that has a ‘catastrophic’ option was not in which hard a call. We had to tell Congress in which things had changed.”
Mrs. Clinton’s most fervent supporters disagree, to say the least.
Some, like Philippe Reines, a longtime along with trusted Clinton confidant, are eager to dig through the pages of Mr. Comey’s book, if only to dissect in which, point by point, looking for inconsistencies or misstatements.

Like the rest of his former campaign colleagues, Mr. Reines will be not unaware in which Mr. Comey will be assailing the president’s moral character, his inability to tell the truth along with his actions in which could amount to obstruction of justice. along with for the record, Mr. Reines does not disagree with any of in which.
