It is number 1 on Amazon’s best seller list. Amazon was accepting pre-orders, and my copy arrived yesterday as promised. The White House has made James Comey out to be public enemy #1, but he was well liked under both Republican and Democrats alike. He was confirmed as FBI Director by the Senate 93 to 1. I’m not bothering listening to Comey’s interviews, nor the White House or Fox’s hourly attacks on Comey. I’m too busy reading his book. I used to subscribe to a stock advisory newsletter, whose motto was jokingly, “Frequently wrong but never in doubt.” I think this applies to Trump. Comey was the exception, “Frequently right, but usually in doubt.”
The strongest asset of a democracy is an informed public. This is Comey’s memoir from the vantage point of the highest level of law investigation and enforcement. It should be read from cover to cover, ignoring the noise coming from Washington and the media.
