Hannity responded to a tweet from Comey telling Trump that "the American people will hear my story very soon" by inviting the former FBI chief to appear on his prime-time Fox News show and his radio show.

Comey had tweeted at the president, saying the American people would be able to "judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.”

Comey is slated to go on a media tour next month to promote his new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership," which is set to be released April 17.

The former FBI director who was fired by Trump is set to sit down with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos for an interview airing April 15. He is also poised to appear on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on April 17 and on ABC's "The View" the following day.

Comey is expected to use his upcoming book tour to counter Trump’s attacks against the FBI, which continued on Saturday as the president took a victory lap following the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabeAndrew George McCabeTen post-Mueller questions that could turn the tables on Russia collusion investigators Electronic surveillance isn't spying — it's much more powerful Barr testimony opens new partisan fight over FBI spying on Trump MORE.
