James Comey is the former director of the FBI. He rose into the spotlight just before the results of the last US presidential election were out. Comey headed the investigation on Hillary Clinton’s email campaign as well as the investigation on President Trump’s ties to Russian government. After the election results were out, a little while passed and President Trump seemed to be fine with Comey at the helm of the FBI, but then it all came to an end when President Trump sent Comey a letter, informing him of his dismissal.
Of course, this is not the whole story of James Comey, but it is what’s relevant in terms of what’s in his book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. In this roughly 300-page book Comey gives his perspective on what’s really happening in the US government today. Considering Comey was investigating both the presidential candidates before the election concluded, it’s fair to say that this book is controversial, to say the least.
I’ll be honest and day I didn’t receive any information I didn’t already know, or guess in some cases, but I’m also someone who has been following the political situation in America for quite a while. I think James Comey is an intelligent individual, and that he also probably had to be fired in the end, whether one likes to admit it or not. In the book Comey paints himself as someone who’s not entirely without fault, but he does criticize the current leader(s) for good reasons as well.
That being said, I think this book is worth the read for anyone who is interested in the perspective of a former FBI Director, who clearly has a firm grip on what’s what and who’s who in today’s politics in America.
