The 11 most eye-opening lines in James Comey's 'A Higher Loyalty,' ranked

11. "His face appeared slightly orange with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coifed, bright blond hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his.....As he extended his hand, I made a mental note to check its size. It was smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so."

...

10. "I stared at the soft white pouches under his expressionless blue eyes. I remember thinking in that moment that the president doesn't understand the FBI's role in American life."

...

9. "I had often wondered why, when given numerous opportunities to condemn the Russian government's invasions of its neighbors and repression — even murder — of its own citizens, Trump refused to just state the plain facts...Maybe it was a contrarian streak or maybe it was something more complicated that explained his constant equivocation and apologies for Vladimir Putin."

...

8. "Another reason you know this isn't true: I'm a germaphobe. There's no way I would let people pee on each other around me, no way."

...

7. "He brought up what he called the 'golden showers thing' . . . adding that it bothered him if there was 'even a 1 percent chance' his wife, Melania, thought it was true....In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn't do that?"

...

6. "It is also wrong to stand idly by, or worse, to stay silent when you know better, while a president brazenly seeks to undermine public confidence in law enforcement institutions that were established to keep our leaders in check."

...

5. "Asking — rhetorically, I assumed — whether he seemed like a guy who needed the service of prostitutes. He then began discussing cases where women had accused him of sexual assault, a subject I had not raised. He mentioned a number of women, and seemed to have memorized their allegations."

...

4. "Now it was pretty clear to me what was happening. The setup of the dinner, both the physical layout of a private meal and Trump's pretense that he had not already asked me to stay on multiple occasions, convinced me this was an effort to establish a patronage relationship."

...

3. "[Kelly] said he was sick about my firing and that he intended to quit in protest. He said he didn't want to work for dishonorable people who would treat someone like me in such a manner. I urged Kelly not to do that, arguing that the country needed principled people around this president. Especially this president."

...

2. "The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth."

...

1. "This President is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values. His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty."

All this really does is reaffirm the beliefs of those who feel Comey was completely pro-Hillary and anti-Trump. It makes me glad he was fired, and makes me even more suspicious of the integrity of our justice department.

People who were expecting bombshells from the book must be really disappointed.

Comey is a patriot and deserves a medal:

"It is also wrong to stand idly by, or worse, to stay silent when you know better, while a president brazenly seeks to undermine public confidence in law enforcement institutions that were established to keep our leaders in check."

Yes.  That's literally the senior editor at large at CNN ... Chris Cillizza ... profiting off you with clickbait. 

Why is one of the 11 most "eye opening" lines from the book not the lines discussing the fact that Hillary Clinton was in fact under criminal investigation by the FBI in 2015 when she pushed news outlets to issue a retraction?

It works both ways. I could say that Trump should not stand silent while law enforcement brazenly seeks to undermine the presidency.

Is that really why our law enforcement institutions ... under the purview of the president ... were established?  Not until 1908?  And to investigate houses of prostitution?

Geez, these people are starting to believe their own propaganda aren't they?
