James Comey speaks of worry for the country at sold-out Boston appearance

Former FBI director James Comey gave an inside look into how he reacts to President Trump’s tweets and attacks against him and how President Obama treated the investigation into Russian election interference, as he addressed a packed auditorium in Boston Sunday.

Comey, who was fired by Trump last May, spoke to about 1,000 attendees at the Back Bay Events Center as part of the tour for his new book, “A Higher Loyalty.” Weaving humorous personal anecdotes into political accounts, Comey acknowledged making mistakes during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails and bemoaned Trump as a “stain” on those around him.

“My great worry today is that under our current leadership … our values, which is all we are as a country, are being eroded,” Comey said.

Standing onstage away from the podium, the 6-foot-8 Comey said many people, himself included, have become numb to Trump’s words and actions. He recalled often waking up and checking online, only to see that “the president of the United States has tweeted that I should be in jail.”

1. Comey can STFU.

I am tired hearing from him. He bemoans...

Comey in fact aided trumps presidency. Weave it any way you wish. With his help we have trump who is destroying the America we knew.

He recalled often waking up and checking online, only to see that “the president of the United States has tweeted that I should be in jail.”


Well, Mr Comey, he only wants you in jail. He wants the rest of us women, POC, gay, Muslim, anti gunners dead and gone. He just wants you in jail.

I, MR COMEY WAKE UP EVERY FUCKING MORNING TO SEE IF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT IS STILL HERE!

Thank you TT

2. You're welcome.

I'm glad that Comey is acknowledging his mistakes. It's going to take me much longer to forgive him for those mistakes though, if ever.

4. I can't help it. Haven't given him a pass and never will.

I have the right to feel concerning what he chose to do in this manner.

I weighed all explanations and justifications. None have altered my position. And will not.
