James Comey is posturing as some sort of civil liberties hero, but as deputy attorney general under Bush he authorized torture, including wall slams & waterboarding, warrantless wiretapping, & indefinite detention. Reportedly, his wife warned him not to “become the torture guy” but he claimed he was compelled by law when in fact he was violating US & international law. In short, he is a monster with the affable persona of a sociopath.
