"In a previous life Mr. Comey was a chameleon — I’ve never seen somebody change his shades and stories as many times in my life," Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) said in an interview. 

Excerpts of Comey’s book,  "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," were released Thursday.

In the book, Comey gives an account of his time in the Trump administration.

Rep. David Joyce (R-Ohio), a former prosecutor, told The Hill that Comey’s book has changed how he views the former FBI chief.

“I used to think very highly of Mr. Comey but I think he's become part of the actors in the play, versus the law enforcement official that I thought he was,” Joyce said.
