"He's taking one or two or three meetings with the president and retroactively putting his own spin on them to sell books," Conway said Friday.

"He sounds like a disgruntled ex-employee who after the fact wants to clear his conscience of what bothered him at the time. If you're that bothered, quit. Leave the job," she added.

Conway continued, hitting Comey for his recent and upcoming media appearances over the release of his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership."

"It seems pretty self-aggrandizing to me," she added.

The White House went into damage control mode on Friday over revelations from Comey's upcoming book, which includes claims that Trump wanted the FBI to investigate and prove false an unverified "golden showers" allegation from the salacious "Steele Dossier."

Trump himself blasted his former FBI chief early Friday, accusing Comey of leaking information to the press and asserting that he should be "prosecuted."

“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH,” Trump tweeted.

He continued in a follow-up tweet, saying it was "my great honor to fire James Comey!"
