Former Director of the FBI James Comey officially left the unemployment rolls this week, joining the faculty of his former college to -ironically- teach a course on “Ethical Leadership” beginning this fall.
According to Politico, the former FBI chief will begin teaching at The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia at the start of the 2018 fall semester; lecturing impressionable young students on the virtues of “ethical leadership.”
“I am thrilled to have the chance to engage with William & Mary students about a vital topic — ethical leadership,” Comey said in a statement. “Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly to the truth.”
“Building and maintaining that kind of leadership, in both the private sector and government, is the challenge of our time,” Comey said. “There is no better place to teach and learn about it than the W&M Washington Program.”
James Comey was fired by President Trump in May 2017 over his mishandling of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Days later, the former bureau chief may have violated federal law by intentionally leaking classified memos to an associate at Columbia University.
COMEY'S RETURN: The Former FBI Boss Reveals 'Secret' Twitter Account
A close confidant and longtime friend of James Comey confirmed the account’s true identity on twitter, saying “Ok, in light of this latest tweet, I will confirm that @FormerBu is, in fact, James Comey himself.”
Former FBI Director James Comey made national headlines last summer when he decided to not indict doomed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information; infamously re-opening the case just weeks before the November election.
Clinton cites the public announcement as a key factor in her stunning defeat to then-Candidate Donald Trump last fall, accusing the FBI director of “shivving” her just days before voters went to the polls.
GLOVES OFF: Lindsey Graham Calls James Comey a 'Rat'
Senator Lindsey Graham wants former FBI director James Comey to testify –again- before Congress after recent revelations regarding the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server raises serious concerns, saying, “I smell a rat.”
“This doesn’t add up, and I smell a rat here,” the Senator told Fox News. “[James Comey] needs to come back to committee.”
The Republican Senator was referring to newly released information that shows the former FBI chief drafter a letter exonerating Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing months before he met with the former Secretary and other key witnesses.
Graham and Senator Chuck Grassley came across the information while investigating the former FBI chief’s removal from the Trump administration; reviewing official transcripts and communications between senior Department of Justice officials.
The “draft letter” raises serious ethical and criminal concerns over whether James Comey was pressured to abandon Hillary’s investigation by Obama aides for political purposes.
The former Secretary of State was cleared of any wrongdoing just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
