Publisher's Summary

Trump’s willingness to alienate the intelligence community and its allies in the military might seem strange, but it points to something important about his worldview. For all his bluster about making other nations respect America again and fighting terrorism, Trump cares more about domestic security. Here, as elsewhere, he has an “American First” approach—and that’s why he’s been solicitous to police and the FBI, and hostile to the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

"James Comey Is Democrats’ Best Hope for Stopping Trump" is from newrepublic.com, published on January 9, 2017.

The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend

I listened to James Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty: Lies and Leadership” (2018), and then former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence” (2018).

I wanted more historical context for what was in the book, so I looked for news articles.

This article talks about the FBI in the weeks before the election and the fact that Mr. Comey probably swung the election. The New Republic thought he would stand up to President Trump.

Here’s the timeline:

July 24, 2015 - the FBI opened an investigation into Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

July 5, 2016 - FBI Director James Comey announced the investigation was being closed without charges against Secretary Clinton

October 28, 2016, Mr. Comey reopens the FBI investigation.

November 6, 2016, Mr. Comey announces that Secretary Clinton will still not face charges and closes the investigation.

November 8, 2016, Donald Trump is elected president.

January 9, 2017 - The New Republic publishes this article

May 9. 2017 - Mr. Comey is fired.
