I'm in the middle of a Clive Cussler book from 10 years ago plus a few other books on the nightstand (local library sells used books for a $1 or less; I need to stop!). Doubt I'll drop it to ready any of Mr. Comey's latest.

He will also appear:

Fairleigh Dickinson University recently announced that Comey will lead off its next "New Jersey Speaker Series" with a speech Oct. 4 at the N.J. Performing Arts Center in Newark.


Can't imagine that road show, but it ought to be tamer than Willie Nelson in Honeysuckle Rose!

They did an early release TODAY of the book. It is a autobiography and it is good. I recommend it. I learned several things I wondered about from the years of 2001 and onward.

One of the things is from page 96 Bush Jr. "I say what the law is for the Executive Branch" when Comey told him the bureau could not certify support for the Stellar Wind Program. a governmental (spying program). After receiving Comey's recommendations, Bush did implement them, but there were people in Bush's administration who had received Comey's recommendations prior to his talk with Bush and had chosen not to provide them to the President. It was only after Comey directly spoke with the President that he learned of these ideas.

These are the things are that are interesting. People seem to assume that the President gets all information all the time and that is not true. Particularly in Bush's case, Cheney held his own Intelligence briefings at 4 a.m. without Bush being present, and then Bush had his meetings at 7:30. Why did Cheney need private briefings?

Another interesting point is about confirmation bias, whereby people seek out information that only supports their view rather than being willing to look at all the information and then be objective about it. There's a lot of that going on.

It is not a Trump bashing book, he talks about his service under many Presidents and also his growing up and early career. It is a good book. It seemed honest, introspective and was well written. He did not try to cover anything up, he relates things that happened and what he felt about them.

It also gives you information about controversies within the administrations he has worked under not just in Washington. He covers his days under Rudy Giuliani also.

And he is the one who signed off on the FISA warrants, but the requests for them came from others.

He speaks about Abu Ghraib and the torture situation etc.

I think this is an important book for people tor read.

Yep. And when Trump's book comes out it will be gospel, right?


No, thats not how it works where I sit.
The book is being trashed from both sides of the aisle and from former colleagues.

But if it takes Trump to task, read on.

Good work. Want to start this really interesting book about a town that protected Jews in Occupied France "Village of Secrets", but I've found that if I read one book at a time I can finish them.
Same here used books follow me home. The stacks are out of control. Gotta remember: If it's books, it's not hoarding

I believe what Comey says, but this book and the press tour make him look really bad. He should wait until the investigation is over so as not to affect it in a negative way.

How did HE destroy the reputation of the FBI? The book explains the processes on how the various agencies work. It is very interesting.

I think he is trying to capitalize on the moment because if he doesn't, public interest might wane later on. He wants to get his name known by more people, and he wants to tell his story. Financially, he needs to have retirement income, income for his family etc. Rather than go home and mope because he was fired, he is trying to turn it around into something fun, interesting and lucrative. It is a constructive strategy.

Have you seen Comey's bank statements or investment portfolio in order to make statements like, "Financially, he needs to have retirement income, income for his family etc."?

Better yet - have you seen his tax returns?

Even better than that - have you seen Trump's tax returns? Silly me - Trump said he would show them after the audit, but then he later said the American people don't care about his tax returns.

Sabotage always does positive things for a campaign. That preferential treatment you refer to got her elected, right?

Who cares? Why do you defend that over daily twitter attacks against great American institutions? If you support daily bashing of America then move.
