The Republican Party now resembles a sleazy public relations outfit.  CNN is reporting on a GOP-sponsored, White House-approved, smear campaign to begin with the launch of James Comey’s book tour next week and an exclusive interview with ABC that airs Sunday night.

  • “The battle plan against Comey, obtained by CNN, calls for branding the nation’s former top law enforcement official as “Lyin’ Comey” through a website, digital advertising and talking points to be sent to Republicans across the country before his memoir is released next week.”
  • “While it’s an open question how successful Republicans will be in making their case against Comey, given that Trump unceremoniously dismissed him last May 9, there is no doubt that many Democrats remain furious at how the former FBI director treated Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.”

ABC released a promo from the interview that hints at what’s to come from the Comey interview.
