Hillary Clinton and James Comey will both be in Dublin on the same day next week.
Both the former US Secretary of State and the former FBI boss will be in the capital city on Friday, June 22 for separate events, Extra.ie reports.
In her 2017 memoir, What Happened, the former Democratic presidential nominee Clinton blamed Comey for her loss in the 2016 US Presidential election.
Eleven days from the election, FBI director Comey made public statements about the investigation over Clinton’s use of an unsecured email.
Clinton dropped in the polls after Comey announced he was reopening the investigation due to new information.
“If not for the dramatic intervention of the FBI director in the final days we would have won the White House,” she wrote.
Next week, Clinton, 70, will be awarded an honorary degree at Trinity College. Before the ceremony, she will deliver a public lecture at noon at the Edmund Burke Lecture Theatre. This will be followed by a conversation with former Irish President and Chancellor of the University Mary Robinson to “explore her views on democracy, women in politics and the current challenges facing American society,” according to a press release.
Meanwhile, Comey, 57, will be appearing at the Irish Film Institute at 6pm for a conversation with Huge Linehan of the Irish Times to promote his new book A Higher Loyalty. He will speak about the 2016 election and his interactions with President Trump before he was fired.
