James Comey is officially writing a book, NYT reports.

Though it won't be a traditional tell-all, it will include details about his time in public service, the guiding principles that have shaped his life, and, yes, his experiences during the four months he worked under President Trump. It will also include details into his thinking while investigating Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and the FBI's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The overarching theme: ethical leadership.

"It's a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he's had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration," Matt Latimer, partner at Javelin publishing (which is publishing Comey's book), told NYT.

Note: Javelin has also worked with Donna Brazile, Tucker Carlson, Sen. Ben Sasse, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Puzder (former nominee for Labor Secretary).

Joe Biden wants to go big on climate change and big on unions. Elon Musk leads on the former but lags on the latter.

Why it matters: Musk isn’t uniquely averse to unions, but Tesla is considered a leader on the type of new technologies needed to tackle climate change. Musk’s leadership ethos could be in the crosshairs if Biden becomes president and follows through on his campaign vows.

Riot police clashed with protesters in Belarus overnight after a government exit poll predicted Sunday President Aleksander Lukashenko, an authoritarian who has ruled the Eastern European country since 1994, had overwhelmingly defeated a pro-democracy opposition candidate.

Why it matters: It's a precarious moment for the former Soviet republic, where decades of repression and a complete disregard for the coronavirus pandemic threaten to topple "Europe's last dictator." Rights groups said at least one protester was killed and dozens more wounded in a "police crackdown," per AP.
