Comey continues to commit the very violations that led to calls for his firing

Former FBI Director James Comey is selling himself with the vigor of a Kardashian and the viciousness of a Trump. While professing to write the book to protect the FBI as an institution, Comey is doing that institution untold harm by joining an ignoble list of tell-all authors. Critics say that the former FBI Director’s interview with George Stephanopoulos was a softball interview and was totally self-serving for Comey. There are also a few back to back contradictions in what the former director is telling. Comey’s peers are not happy with his tell-all publication. He has done much harm to the reputation of the FBI. Here is how he is doing it.

The former FBI director continues to commit the very violations that led to calls for his firing.

The headlines could not be more enticing or salacious. One declared “Comey memoir claims Trump was obsessed with disproving ‘pee tape’ allegation” while others featured the fired FBI director questioning Trump’s marriage. In his book, as well as Sunday’s interview with ABC News, James Comey described Trump’s “slightly orange” face with “bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles” or discussed how he “made a mental note to check [his hand] size.” (Spoiler alert: Comey found them not unusually small.)

Comey is selling himself with the vigor of a Kardashian and the viciousness of a Trump. While professing to write the book to protect the FBI as an institution, Comey is doing that institution untold harm by joining an ignoble list of tell-all authors……
