The memos, which Comey has described in his book and congressional testimony, form a key part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of potential obstruction of justice.
Comey revealed a year ago that he had written the memos after conversations with President Donald Trump, who later fired him.
"Because I thought that, without transparency, public trust and confidence in the integrity of our work would be severely undercut", Comey said.
At the time, the president was upset that transcripts of his phone conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia had appeared in The Washington Post. Remnick asked, referring to Comey's decision to hold a press conference, by himself, in July, 2016, to announce that no charges would be filed in the Clinton case, but to say, nevertheless, that Clinton had been "extremely careless" in her handling of classified information.
That memorandum also recalls a now-infamous exchange that was leaked to the media in which Trump allegedly told Comey "that he needed loyalty and expected loyalty".

In a Senate hearing last June, Comey told Congress, "I knew there might come a day when I would need a record of what had happened, not just to defend myself, but to defend the Federal Bureau of Investigation and our integrity as an institution and the independence of our investigative function".
President Trump expressed concerns about the judgment of his national security adviser Michael Flynn weeks before forcing him to resign, according to memos kept by former FBI director James B. Comey that recount in detail efforts by Trump to influence the bureau's expanding investigation of Russian Federation. But Comey is quoted in the report as saying that McCabe did not tell him he had approved sharing details of the call and, in fact, had left him with the opposite impression.

Comey also told Tapper, incredibly, that he wasn't sure of how many memos there were, or how many were classified.
Comey said he told the president, "I was eager to find leakers and would like to nail one to the door as a message". The president asked Comey to get the word out that he was not personally under investigation for connections to Russian Federation.
The reference Jolly made to the prostitutes goes back to a comment in the Comey memos about a conversation Trump said he had with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "He replied by telling me to talk to (Attorney General Jeff) Sessions and see what we can do about being more aggressive".
However, three home Republican committee chairmen requested Friday they are sent to Congress, and made evident that week that they certainly were prepared to issue a subpoena to induce Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein to achieve that.
