Fired as the FBI Director by Trump in 2017, James Comey knows better than most what a force for good the US justice system can be – and how far afield it has strayed.
From prosecuting mobsters as an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of New York in the 1980s to grappling with the legalities of anti-terrorism work as the Deputy Attorney General in the early 2000s to, of course, his tumultuous stint as FBI director beginning in 2013, James Comey has dedicated his life to the pursuit of truth and justice.
Now, in the wake of the Capitol riot (“our Chernobyl… a 9/11 size failure”), and Trump’s second impeachment (“The Republican party needs to be burned down”), he joins How To Academy to sound a clarion call for a return to fairness, transparency and equity before the law.
Comey joins us at this pivotal time in his nation’s history to explore the past, present, and future of justice in America.
He says: “I’ve had the good fortune to work in government in Republican and Democratic administrations… and will share stories from my work that illuminate the vital core values of American justice and why we must overcome and repair the corrosive damage Trump and his underlings have done with dishonesty, cronyism, political payback, and amorality.”
Don’t miss this exclusive chance to hear from one of the most influential, respected, and distinguished figures in US public life today.
