Beyond those things, the book is downright trite and filled with venom and hatred. He talks about the President's hand size (we know the connotation of that), how he had a orange glow from his tan which left white circles around his eyes where the tanning goggles. He even comments he felt uncomfortable in the presence of a man he thinks is akin to a "Mafia Boss." He went so far as to say that the President isn't morally qualified to hold the office, conveniently forgetting the sins of others in the past. Yet, he also talks about his own purity, his higher loyalty to the truth and his leadership of the FBI, but today we see an FBI that still has a number of officals who remain out of control and out of touch with their mission. A quick look back at the actions leading up to his Comey's firing and his book make it clear that this man must be on some kind of heavy duty Kool Aid, for his comments nowhere resemble reality.
Back when Hillary was getting going in her campaign and ethical and other problems were surfacing, the FBI began to look at her computer emails and server problems when it become clear she was doing something out of the ordinary. Also, of course, the Uranium One issue came up involving a seeming pay for play scheme where Russia would get rights to twenty-percent of our uranium in return for who knows what. The who came out later and it involved heavy donations to the Clinton charity to the tune of one hundred and fifty million dollars. These played out for months but the FBI was investigating and no one knew what would ultimately follow.
During that period leading up the the 2016 election Clinton was questioned by Congress and the FBI. She was never under oath and when the FBI finally decided they needed a more formal discussion she was even allowed to have her attorney and her confidante, Cheryl Mills, present with her. Again, she was never put under oath and that final meeting with her was on July 5, 2016. Now we've learned from the slowly released email records that Comey and his chief investigator on the case, Peter Strzock, were drafting her exoneration letter in May, two months before her final hearing. Contrast that with the treatment of Donald Trump's staff member General Flynn who was never even told that the discussion was an interview, conducted when an FBI agent dropped in to the White House informally.
Of course, Comey reopened the Clinton case suddenly not long before the election and quickly closed it again, saying nothing was out of order. And through it all he stuck to his original press statement that he found significant problems with Clinton's handling of the emails but, in the end, he didn't think sufficient issues were found to warrant legal action. Come on, Mr. Comey, she had an unsecured computer in her home with access to classified documents. No one in government service, elected, appointed or otherwise is granted that authority under the Federal Code. And when the documents disappeared after being subpoenaed, what should have taken place was obvious, but it didn't.
And then there is the Russia collusion problem and the appointment of a Special Counsel, something which Comey said was the reason for releasing his self-prepared memos about his confidential meetings with Trump. Justice Department rules don't authorize that; Comey was sending documents created on government time with a government computer about conversations with the leader of the Free World and releasing them to a friend to leak to the press, which was done quickly. Those documents were federal property, not Comey's personal possessions. He's admitted sending them and he's even admitted that the infamous dossier which started the Special Counsel activity wasn't even validated.
Earth to Comey, you can't use an unverified document as the basis for a FISA court warrant, yet you personally approved it. And then isn't it interesting that the man who, from that beginning, one Robert Mueller, Comey's mentor at the FBI, was selected for the job. This is just too cozy for comfort, including the make-up of Mueller's team with the likes of Peter Strzock and his mistress Lisa Page (Trump hating email partners) and Andrew Weisman. Weisman has a dismal track record in legal matters including the Enron-Arthur Anderson case over a decade ago which shuttered a large company and ended the employment of nearly ten thousand employees. And the case was overturned on appeal by the Supreme court unanimously, 9-0.
I won't even go into details on the supposedly pure Robert Mueller's past as a federal prosecutor where his actions in Boston cost the taxpayers one hundred million dollars. All you have to do is look up the Whitey Bulger, mobster extraordinaire and his service as a federal informant to put those pieces together. And all of these things and all of these people are now joined together because of one thing: Hillary couldn't face the reality of losing and James Comey wants to get even with the President of the United States for winning. Believe what you want, folks, but the case they are trying to build with little if any evidence against Donald Trump is so one-sided and biased that when it hits the fan, it will look like a block of swiss cheese which exploded. There will be extra holes in it everywhere.
And finally, why did Comey use "A Higher Loyalty" as the title for his book and to whom is that loyalty? Well, it's really simple. His loyalty certainly isn't to Truth. His loyalty is to James Comey, who thinks purely of himself and self-promotion. And it should be clear early on in this book that he should have never been made the head of the nation's premier investigative arm of the law. But, having said that I do hope he makes a lot of money from sale of his book. He's going to need it later for a very good criminal defense attorney. And it will all come in due time, all in due time.
