As Twitchy told you, James Comey tweeted that he’d offered to appear on “FOX & Friends” to discuss the IG report and “give them some actual facts about the FBI,” but Fox canceled on him:
FYI: I offered to go on Fox & Friends to answer all questions. I can’t change their viewers on Donald Trump but hoped to give them some actual facts about the FBI. They booked me for tomorrow at 8 am. They just cancelled. Must have read the report.

Or maybe, James Comey is just full of it. According to CNN’s Oliver Darcy, who’s never off the Fox News beat, a Fox News spokesperson said that Comey was never booked on “FOX & Friends” in the first place:
Fox News spokesperson disputes @Comey: “James Comey was not booked and was never confirmed to appear on Fox & Friends.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation received the same statement:

Ah. Well, if true, that would certainly explain why he hasn’t accepted Bret Baier’s invitation to appear on “Special Report.”

I'm sure this is the only thing he's lied about. Only this.
