DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former FBI Director James Comey paid a weekend visit to Iowa, site of the first presidential caucuses.
Cue the speculation.
One of President Donald Trump's best-known adversaries dined at a must-stop steakhouse for politicos and posed for a photo along a rural road with a neatly groomed field as a backdrop, as countless White House aspirants have before him.
However, it turns out, Comey was visiting his in-laws.
With a new Twitter pseudonym — Reinhold Niebuhr — Comey revealed he was in Iowa with his wife Patrice, an Iowa native whose father was celebrating his 90th birthday.
The general manager of 801 Chophouse, Damon Murphy, said Comey and his party simply enjoyed their steak dinner.
Trump fired Comey in May, roiling Washington.
