"Do you think there's any credence to the president's claim that you broke the law when you released your memos?" asked WIlliam and Mary senior Evelyn Lawhorn, referring to memos about his conservations with Trump that Comey gave to a friend after he was sacked.
According to those memos, Trump told the then-FBI director that he never spent the night in Moscow during the trip. I write at the end of my book that Trump's presidency is a forest fire ... they do damage but things grow in the wake of them.
One student asked Comey if he has a nickname for Trump.
"A Higher Loyalty" has been talked about for months and had an announced pre-release print run of 850,000 copies.
The White House and the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider.

He added, "What I hope they'll do is ask themselves, Republicans, 'so what will I tell my grandchildren when they ask me, x so what did you do?"
They say it was a great way to socialize and learn at the same time.
"To me, what matters most, and what the American people did not vote for and would not vote for is the derogation of the norms, the touchstone of truth, which is the heart of this country", he said.
The book has drawn Mr Trump's ire as Comey compared the President to a mob boss who emphasises personal loyalty over the law and has little regard for morality or truth.
