Allies of United States President Donald Trump have launched an online campaign in an effort to discredit a memoir by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. 

Mr. Comey is set to release a book next week detailing the U.S. president’s “mob boss” style of leadership and describing “the forest fire that is the Trump presidency”, reported the Washington Post.

Mr. Trump fired Comey from his top slot at the FBI last May and in its aftermath it emerged that the former director had kept detailed notes on his conversations with the president that may have detailed obstruction over the Michael Flynn probe.

After reports of the Comey memos emerged, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hired former FBI chief Robert Mueller to lead the special counsel investigation into alleged Russian election meddling and possible collusion.

An ABC News interview by George Stephanopoulos featuring Comey will be aired on Sunday, kicking off the book tour for A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership, already a bestseller on Amazon.

The Republican National Committee funded a website called ‘Lyon’ Comey’ that attempts to attack his credibility.
