Popular vote loser Donald Trump, who jokingly refers to himself and his Republican party as the party of law and order, has recently declared a personal war against the nations top law enforcement agency, the FBI. Well, not a verbal declaration, but his actions speak for themselves.
Trump believes the FBI leadership, which is, by the way, full of lifelong, respected Republicans and people that he himself appointed, is biased against him in their investigations into his corruption and criminal activity.
The best example of this is his firing of James Comey as Director of the FBI last April. Trump clearly believed Comey was too close to uncovering the truth about Trump’s nefarious actions, and thought firing him would make it go away. Not only did it not make it go away, it’s still the action in his war on the FBI that might help bring him down the most.
Former FBI Director James Comey’s new book just had its publication date moved up due to the public interest in the FBI in the wake of Trump’s continuing attacks on the agency’s credibility.
Flatiron Books, the publisher of Comey’s upcoming memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” says the increasing demand for Comey’s contribution to the “urgent conversation” currently taking place about the FBI played a part in releasing the book sooner.
The book will now be available April 17th instead of on May. Amazon says of the book:
“In his forthcoming book, former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.”
“Effective leadership,” “ethical,” “good,” are words and phrases that will never be used to accurately describe the era of the Donald Trump administration, unless of course, we’re talking about James Comey and Robert Mueller, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post and all of Trump’s “enemies,” working to expose the truth.
