Hillary Clinton would have been ecstatic when Donald Trump fired James Comey and had to be stopped by advisers to publicly praise the decision, a new book said.

The former presidential candidate initially agreed with her rival's decision to dismiss the then FBI director, The Daily Beast reports.

Democrat Clinton was at her home in Chappaqua, New York when Comey lost the top job, according to new book, We & # 39; ve Got People: From Jesse Jackson to AOC, the end of the big money and the rise of a movement.

Author Ryan Grim claims that her first reaction was the fact that Comey reopened the investigation of her e-mails only days before the elections.

Clinton said earlier that she thinks the letter Comey sent to Congress in October 2016 announced that the FBI is only 11 days before the election looking back at the email investigation, killing her chances of winning.

In her own book, What Happened Clinton accuses Comey of kicking her & # 39;

She wrote that his public comments about the email investigation opened the door for Trump to portray her as & # 39; Crooked Hillary & # 39 ;.

And she would have thought that Comey & # 39; had finally received what he had sent & # 39; when Trump fired him, according to the new book.

Grim writes: & # 39; She had spent the winter and spring with pores on survey and turnout data, relentlessly calling, analyzing, and re-analyzing friends and former assistants.

& # 39; It was, her friends believed, both part of her grieving process, but also to stop her.

& # 39; When she heard that Trump had fired Comey, she was ecstatic. Comey was finally ready to arrive. & # 39;

Comey was fired by Trump in May 2017 as he led the investigation into alleged interference by the Russians in the 2016 US presidential election.

Trump's decision led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Comey was fired by Trump, partly based on a memo written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein has accused Comey of having completed Clinton's email investigation.

One of Clinton's top campaign advisors and former spokesman Brian Fallon said her team was initially unsure how to deal with the news.

He said: & # 39; In the immediate aftermath, people did not know how to respond. There were people who started buying in Trump's rationale. & # 39;

But Grim adds that Clinton was eventually deterred by advisers from issuing a statement that welcomed the move.
