In his book, former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.

Mr. Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. He previously served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the U.S. deputy attorney general in the administration of President George W. Bush. From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration’s policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history.

Some supplemental reading from Mr. Comey today. I haven’t gotten to this part of the book yet but I’m still not seeing what this “vital information” he chose not to hide is. I guess the IG agrees with me.

One thing I forgot to mention yesterday during the discussion. Comey is completely wrong about Edward Snowden and about his positions of cryptography in general.

That probably wouldn’t have been a very interesting discussion though.
