I Was a Top Clinton Aide. Here’s What I Think About Comey’s Book. - POLITICO an article I just read talks about another different perspectives on Former FBI Director James Comey’s actions in his new book, A Higher Loyalty
Clearly Jennifer Palmieri in her Politico article shares an overall democratic sentiment on how the Clinton email investigation cause Hillary’s losing the 2016 election. It preceeded on her analysis as a political operative on Comey’s intent to be at the helm of the media spotlight and his executive actions beyond his role as FBI Director in her viewpoint.
There’s so many factors as she herself outlined on the personality and career history of Director Comey. Yet as any other politician on high level career positions like her, Comey and even Hillary, the previous background and work history is colorful with achievements leading to these high positions. Hence, whether the intent for Comey’s actions were really intentionally done to further climb up the bureaucracy and or not will eventually be unveiled over time.
Historically, defeated candidates especially Presidential ones like Hillary who has prepared for over 10 years to run twice and get defeated will take a few years of healing from ones inner self and soul. In turn, a high profile executive like Comey whom as Jennifer said took actions beyond his position with goals to go up the chain whom eventually got fired. The story on Comey will be there for a while in lieu of his book but eventually he is going to be out of the spotlight unlike Clinton as after all historically she is still a Former First Lady.
The hiatus is still up most likely as long as the Russian meddling on the 2016 elections investigation concludes. It’s going to dwindle most likely if this current President wins a second term.
Anyone buying A Higher LoyaltyI believe tries to see a better perspective on what happened on how Comey got fired. Some wants to see if there’s really a case on President Trump. I do not believe that the US for various reasons will impeach a current President.
