Hillary Clinton was reportedly "ecstatic" after hearing Donald Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey in 2017, and had to be held back by advisors from "publicly praising" the president for the move, according to reports.

Trump's 2016 presidential election rival initially agreed with his decision drop Comey as head of the FBI, a new book - "We've Got People: From Jesse Jackson to AOC, the End of Big Money and the Rise of a Movement" - has claimed.

Hillary's response was down to Comey reopening the investigation into her emails just days before the election, the book claims.

Clinton has often cited the move by Comey as a reason she lost the election and is said to have thought Comey had "finally gotten what he had coming."

Democrat Clinton was at her Chappaqua, New York home when Comey lost the top job and had to be "dissuaded from issuing a statement applauding the move," the book says.

Author Ryan Grim also claims that Hillary spent months "grieving" over the election loss and was unable to move on.

According to the Daily Mail, Clinton previously has said that she thinks the letter Comey sent to Congress in October 2016, announcing that the FBI would be looking back at the email investigation, just 11 days before the election, killed her chances of winning.   

In her own book, What Happened Clinton accused Comey of "shivving" her.

She wrote that his public remarks about the email investigation opened the door for Trump to portray her as "Crooked Hillary." 

And she is said to have thought Comey had "finally gotten what he had coming" when Trump fired him, according to the new book.

Grim writes: "She had spent the winter and spring poring over survey and turnout data, calling friends and former aides relentlessly, analyzing and re-analyzing.

"It was, her friends believed, both part of her grieving process, but also holding her back from moving on. 

"When she learned that Comey had been fired by Trump, she was ecstatic.

"Comey had finally gotten what he had coming."

Comey was fired by Trump in May 2017 while he was leading the investigation into alleged meddling 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 faulted Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation. 

One of Clinton's top campaign advisers and former spokesperson Brian Fallon said her team was unsure initially how to handle the news. 

He said: "In the immediate aftermath, people weren't sure how to respond.

"There were people who started buying into Trump's rationale."

But Grim adds that Clinton was "ultimately dissuaded by advisers from issuing a statement applauding the move."
