Benjamin Wittes, editor in chief of Lawfare and a friend of Comey's, confirmed the account's owner on Twitter. Taking to twitter, Wittes said, “ Ok, in light of this latest tweet, I will confirm that @FormerBu is, in fact, James Comey himself.”
According to CNN, “The account has also tweeted out scenic pictures from West Point, Gettysburg and around Iowa.” Comey is also penning a book about leadership and “yet-unheard anecdotes” from his career, set to come out in next year’s spring. Earlier in May, the former FBI director was fired from his post by President Donald Trump amid an investigation of a likely collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian officials.
