I have now listened to at least four different interviews with James Comey, and while I may wish that the 2016 election had turned out differently than it did (lordy, how I wish that), I am having an increasingly tough time faulting Comey for his decisions at the time that he made them. I also don’t buy the “He’s full of himself” conventional wisdom that seems to be getting directed out Comey from a bunch of different outlets.
  1. @petebrown Have you read Dark Money? I’m about 90% done. It is a fascinating and sobering read about money in U.S. politics, giving really good insight into what happened in the 2016 election.

  2. @kitt Yeah, it’s quite good (as is pretty much all of Mayer’s stuff). Still, I think money only explains maybe half of what happened in the 2016 election.
