James Comey’s book tour is taking him to Amazon. The former FBI Director ousted by President Donald Trump will speak at an employee event at Amazon’s Seattle headquarters Monday.

The event is part of a series Amazon calls Fishbowl. The company hosts authors, musicians, actors, and public officials for regular fireside chats exclusively for employees. Amazon confirmed the Comey event to GeekWire after it was first reported by The Intercept.

Comey is also promoting his book, “A Higher Loyalty,” at a sold-out public event in Seattle this Sunday. The book details Comey’s leadership of the FBI and infamous final days as director when he clashed with Trump over the Russia investigation.

The event Monday brings together two thorns in Trump’s side. The president has spent months criticizing Amazon for a number of perceived ills, including underpaying taxes and exploiting the U.S. Postal Service. Trump has also been firing shots at Comey, calling him a liar and a showboat.

As of Friday morning, Trump had not weighed in on Comey’s planned appearance at Amazon.
