Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Former FBI Director Comey: Trump “Unethical, Untethered to Truth”

HeadlineApr 13, 2018

Former FBI Director James Comey compares Donald Trump’s presidency to a “forest fire that can’t be contained,” in an explosive new book due out next Tuesday. In newly published excerpts of the book, “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey compares President Trump to Mafia bosses he once worked to send to prison, writing, “This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values. His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty.” Comey’s book arrives 11 months after Trump fired him, allegedly because Comey refused to quash an investigation into Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
