James Comey's 'A Higher Loyalty': Book Review

Trump attacks ex-FBI director Comey in early morning tweetstorm

In tweets Sunday, April 15, and Monday, April 16, Trump alleged, without citing evidence, that Comey had committed "many crimes" and deserves to be jail for leaking classified information and lying to Congress - allegations Comey denies.

Former FBI Director James Comey kicked off his publicity blitz for his new memoir with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. The interview was with ABC News to promote his new book called "A Higher Loyalty". Trump is notoriously thin-skinned, and seeing Comey's name and image splashed all over the cable news channels he so obsessively watches obviously angers him. But, other than trying to dirty a man foolishly trying to make a living by wanting to tell a story to defend his own reputation, the credibility of the department he led and his need to protect America, the ultimate inquiry must be-do they have any information at all that is directly related to whether Comey is or is not telling the truth regarding his interactions with Trump?

Last year, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) published evidence that Comey had already drafted an exoneration letter for Clinton, while the Federal Bureau of Investigation had yet to interview 17 key witnesses.

"The American people see right through the blatant lies of a self-admitted leaker", Sanders said Friday. Everybody's got opinions. I may agree with Comey that Trump is morally unfit to be president, but that doesn't mean it's particularly important that he thinks so. And Comey has said that Rosenstein acted "dishonorably" by allegedly helping advance a pretext for Comey's dismissal past year. Clinton herself has pointed to Comey's actions in explaining her presidential election loss.

And Konami is teasing that Grimoire of Souls will utilize iconic songs from Castlevania games past as its soundtrack. While Konami hasn't announced a concrete release date for the game, a beta is expected for Japanese players.

Comey responded to a new round of personal attacks from the White House by underscoring how President Trump has made once out-of-bounds behavior seem unremarkable. But with his petty criticisms and over-the-top language, Comey is coming off as just another partisan.

In a Sunday interview with ABC, Comey admitted that his belief that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election was a factor in his decision to reopen the email probe.

-"And then that changed on the screens, which showed the different networks, changed to, 'Comey fired'".

US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, interviewed on NBC's Meet the Press, expressed qualified support for Mr Comey. "He may conclude that there is nothing that touches President Trump or any of his senior people", he said.

"A Star Wars Story" shows Han Solo's action and humour
The Han and Chewbacca interaction feels right, even if other parts of it seem to still be trying to find the right footing.

"If I were to make a prediction, I would expect there to be a criminal referral in this matter", Ratcliffe said.

"Normally FBI directors are as closed lipped as possible". Trump on Sunday rejected Comey's assertion that Trump had sought his loyalty at a January 2017 dinner, saying "I hardly even knew this guy".

I know Superman, and Jim Comey is no Superman. The polls swung considerably against Hillary Clinton after Comey's October 28 announcement, and didn't recover when he declared two days before the election that the investigation hadn't actually turned up anything incriminating about her. After Clinton's loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.

"The Justice Department's handling of the Clinton email investigation under my leadership was no exception", she said in the statement, which was first obtained by CNN. "I think he felt a pressure in the political environment because he wanted Hillary Clinton to be elected, to give her a shot in the arm".

He added: "But you can not have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and independents treasure".
