    James Comey ~ 'A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership'

    Today

    In his absorbing new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey calls the Trump presidency a “forest fire” that is doing serious damage to the country’s norms and traditions.


    https://www.npr.org/2018/04/12/60202...mp-as-mob-like

    https://www.google.com/search?source....0.gK7Im6cpKV8


    “This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values,” Comey writes.
    “His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty.”


    James Comey's much-anticipated memoir A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership doesn't pull any punches when it comes to condemning the roughly 15-month tenure of President Trump.


    The former FBI directorwho Trump unceremoniously fired paints a picture of a chief executive only concerned about his own image in the press instead of the safety of the nation.

    The book isn't set to be released until next week, but NPR has obtained a copy.


    In it, Comey reflects on the circumstances surrounding his dismissal, reveals further insights into his fraught conversations with the president and examines his own controversial decisions — namely how he handled the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and whether or not he impacted Clinton's chances against Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

    I put comeys book in the same league and Michael Wolffs. I have no use for sour grape after the fact books that are written just because they know they will make a quick million or two or more. These books are always one sided and when they are closely scrutinized the lies and omissions in the book come out but after flocks of those that want to believe the book as gospel have already read it.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    the liberals absolutely love total corruption. It's all they have since their other messages are being ignored.
