    "The book will not be a conventional tell-all memoir, but an exploration of the principles that have guided Mr. Comey through some of the most challenging moments of his legal career. Among those are his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server during a contentious election, and his recent entanglement with the president over the F.B.I.’s inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

    “It’s a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he’s had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration,” said Mr. Latimer, whose agency also represents Tucker Carlson and Donna Brazile. “It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership.”

    Above is from the link. So what's the problem? Are you people complaining some new kind of communists? What's your complaint against a man making money in an open economy where he has something to sell that isn't an illegal product? NEXT...

    Sounds like motivation to lie a little bit, you know, to make your book sound better.

    Gotta have that drama in there to boost sales.
    And considering how much of a drama queen Comey is I'm sure he won't have any problem supplying it for this book.

    Capitalism doesn't really have anything to do with lying or exaggerating for money anyway. You are conflating two very different issues.

    I'm sure it will be riveting, tragic, and damning.

    Downright Shakespearean.

    All capitalism means is that the economy is controlled privately rather than by the state. It has nothing to do with lying for money.

    People lie for money in any economic system. So trying to blame that on capitalism or act like it's somehow mutually exclusive to capitalism is very ignorant - because I can assure you there was plenty of lying going on for money in communist Russia as well.

    Then i guess you should not have been so incredibly naive to have said what you did.
    Blame???? WTF are you talking about? Do you actually read what you post?

    You are the one who is incredibly naive if you think people only lie for money in capitalistic economic systems....

    Like I said - capitalism has nothing to do with lying for money. It's simply a term that means the economy is controlled privately instead of by the State. And yes - calling capitalism evil is blaming it. So WTF are you talking about? Don't you actually read the actual posts I am responding to before you jump into the middle of my conversations?
