The site, LyinComey.com, quotes a number of Democrats like Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slamming the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Comey himself.
The official told Fox News that the RNC has prepared a rapid response team to respond to claims made in Comey's book, compiled a research team to fact check, and created a "war room" to monitor his appearances.
"From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration's policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history". His decision to share the information with lawmakers triggered a firestorm of criticism due to the agency's longstanding habit of staying mum on active criminal investigations.
The departure of Mr Comey, who was leading the Russian Federation investigation before he was sacked by Mr Trump, is a key event being looked at by special counsel Robert Mueller. "Comey is a liar and a leaker, and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing".

But some Republicans have abstained from publicly criticizing Comey before his book tour. Sen.
Other prominent conservatives, however, appear to have already adopted arguments similar to those that the RNC laid out. These sources insist that Kelly was simply expressing something along the lines of "I don't know why you got fired, best of luck to you". "So he's out for a little bit of revenge", Huckabee said.
