FBI director James Comey, who was abruptly fired by US President Donald Trump in May, revealed himself on Monday to be the owner of a mysterious Twitter account.
Speculation had been rife for months that Comey was behind the account named after 20th century American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr.
Comey confirmed it on Monday by tweeting a picture of himself standing on a road staring into the distance.
Goodbye Iowa. On the road home. Gotta get back to writing. Will try to tweet in useful ways. pic.twitter.com/DCbu3Yvqt3
