Comey responds to IG report


The following article appeared in Powerline on June 15th

By Scott Johnson

Former FBI Director James Comey led the FBI into crisis, scandal and disgrace. Fired from the job by President Trump, he presented himself as a model of ethical leadership with a best-selling how-to book. The IG report released yesterday documents his failures, notes his duplicity, calls him out for his high handedness, and gives us his endless self-justification. In the tweet below responding to the IG report, we see that he is a man of many devices, one of which is a public relations strategy to ward off shame. He could write an authentic classic on the high art of political pretense. Like Dad Longworth, he is a one-eyed jack, but we’ve seen the other side of his face.

I respect the DOJ IG office, which is why I urged them to do this review. The conclusions are reasonable, even though I disagree with some. People of good faith can see an unprecedented situation differently. I pray no Director faces it again. Thanks to IG’s people for hard work.
