Getting fired by President Trump was the best thing that ever happened to James Comey — at least financially.

The former FBI director — who never made more than a bureaucrat’s salary in law enforcement — already has a best seller through preorders with his book “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”

Last summer, Comey signed a book deal with Flatiron, a Macmillan imprint, worth $2 million. Comey, who is also taping an audio version, will make promotional appearances on ABC and CBS and launch a 10-city tour.

In five of those cities, Comey is giving lectures and commanding Broadway-like prices. Tickets for Comey’s appearance at Town Hall on April 19 (two days after the book’s publication) are going for as much as $850 on StubHub — $95 is the top face value.
