Former FBI Director James Comey will join CNN for a Town Hall next month – a week after his eagerly awaited memoir will hit bookshelves, the cable network announced on Wednesday.
The one-hour, prime-time Town Hall on April 25 will be moderated by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and will air live from the Phi Beta Kappa Memorial Hall at Comey’s alma mater, College of William & Mary, in Williamsburg, Va., CNN said.
Comey was fired by President Trump in May 2017 while he was heading up the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any collusion on the part of Trump campaign associates.
His firing led the way for the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who took over the Russia probe.
Comey’s appearance on CNN will happen a little more than a week after his tell-all, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” will be published on April 17.
Cooper and members of the audience will discuss Comey’s FBI career, his ouster by Trump and his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, CNN said.
Other television appearance in April for the former G-man include:
- April 15: Prime-time special on ABC’s “20/20” with host George Stephanopoulos.
- April 17: “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
- April 18: NBC’s “Today” show and ABC’s “The View.”
- April 19: CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” and MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow.”
