JAMES COMEY – REMEMBER THE NAME

The Fix writes, “James Comey will soon become a household name as the new director of the FBI, assuming confirmation hearings go well before the Senate Judiciary Committee this summer. COMEY The New York Times reports, “Comey reportedly was selected over White House counterterrorism adviser Lisa Monaco, whose former role at the DOJ had led to concerns that Republicans would raise the issue of the Benghazi attacks during the confirmation process. Comey, who served as acting attorney general in 2004 while then-AG John Ashcroft recuperated from surgery, clashed with White House counsel Alberto Gonzales and Chief of Staff Andrew Card over the reauthorization of a warrantless wiretapping program.” … Comey also challenged the Bush administration on “enhanced interrogation,” National Journal’s Brian Resnick writes. “People may think it strange to hear me say I miss John Ashcroft, but as intimidated as he could be by the WH, when it came to crunch-time, he stood up, even from an intensive care hospital bed. That backbone is gone,” Comey wrote in a 2005 e-mail.
