A Higher Loyalty by James Comey

A Higher Loyalty book cover

To be honest, I wasn’t all that excited about this book. I thought it would be too focused on blaming or justifying all the things that happened with Clinton and Trump. I was wrong. This book is a page-turner. And while it does cover Comey’s role in the 2016 election as well as the details around his firing, those weren’t even the most interesting parts of the book. His background and stories involving cases we’ve all heard about (Martha Stewart, CIA torture, NSA surveillance) were fascinating. Comey reminds me of the value of having honorable people of character in positions of power, and the peril of choosing otherwise.
