Whoopi Goldberg, one of the ABC talk show’s co-hosts, announced the high-profile April 18 booking on Tuesday’s show, saying of the former FBI director, “Clearly, we have a lot to talk to him about.”

The interview on “The View” will come a day after Comey is poised to sit down with Stephen Colbert on CBS’s “The Late Show.”

The slate of appearances — which also includes an interview with George Stephanopoulos on April 15, his first since leaving the administration — comes during a promotional push for Comey’s upcoming memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership.”
