James Comey: Defender of Cafeteria Ethics

Newt Gingrich came right out and said what a lot of people think: James Comey - former U.S. attorney, deputy attorney general, corporate attorney, hedge-funder and FBI director - wrote a self-serving book filled with lies and half truths and may well be a “pathological liar.”

“I’m saying he taught himself a early age a series of self-serving emotions, which he uses … if you watch him for a couple of hours of this stuff, he uses it over and over,” Gingrich concluded. “This guy is almost a pathological liar.” Daily Caller

Worth a view:

Pathological liars may lie to gain sympathy…In order to keep up appearances, they may spin larger and more complicated lies.

We all know somebody like this: they get a pained look on their face when they’re lying to you about whatever has gone awry not really being their fault but yours.


And like Comey, when you ask them a question they artfully deflect it and give you the carefully rehearsed answer to the question they wanted you to ask.

 Observe whether the person dodges questions. When confronted, a pathological liar may find a way to avoid answering a question. Pathological liars are manipulative by nature, so you may think they've answered something when they really have failed to do so.


Come to think of it that describes most Democrats. Not that Comey thinks of himself as a Democrat. No, he’s bigger than any political party.

(Comey) portrays himself as the defender of truth, the paragon of integrity, the embodiment of ethical values and principles and as someone guided by a steady moral compass…he even gives himself moral credit for not cutting in line at the FBI cafeteria! If there’s a Nobel Prize for restaurant manners, he should claim it.  Politico


When Trump-haters like Politico’s Jack Schafer say things like “When your 304-page book and marathon interviews produce sympathy for Donald Trump—even a dollop of sympathy—you’re doing it wrong,” trust me, he’s doing it wrong. But I’m sure he’ll get it all worked out in his head before he begins  teaching his course on ethical leadership at the College of William & Mary in Virginia.
