(Paul Mirengoff) James Comey’s book and interview tour may enable him gain personal enrichment and public attention. However, they will further stain his reputation within the FBI.
That, at least, is the conclusion I reach from this article in the Daily Beast. Jana Winter reports:
James Comey’s first interview since President Trump fired him as director of the FBI has enraged his former agents who deluged the Daily Beast with their disdain as they watched him tell his side of the story to George Stephanopoulos on Sunday night.
Seven current or former FBI agents and officials spoke throughout and immediately after the broadcast. There was a lot of anger, frustration, and even more emojis—featuring the thumbs-down, frowny face, middle finger, and a whole lot of green vomit faces.
One former FBI official summed things up nicely:
Good lord, what a self-serving self-centered jackass. True to form he thinks he’s the smartest guy around.
