This will not come as a surprise to anyone, including even to the President's most ardent defenders: Donald Trump lied to me from the start Restoring Justice is James Comey's searing memoir and guide to reclaiming truth in the institutions of justice, which have been so badly damaged under Trump. Whether or not Donald Trump occupies the White House after the November election at least one part of his legacy will outlast him. He has managed to convince millions of Americas that our federal justice system doesn't operate with integrity and that its leaders routinely fail to tell the truth. That is a dangerous situation that must be addressed and corrected. This book is an attempt to do that - to remind Americans of how our institutions of justice should work, and how its leaders must behave. James Comey has worked in government in Republican and Democratic administrations - as a line federal prosecutor, a United States Attorney, Justice Department official, and Director of the FBI - and he shares stories from his career that illuminate the indispensable core values of America's justice institutions and why we must overcome and repair the corrosive damage Trump and his underlings have done with deception, alternative facts, dishonesty, political payback, and amorality.

Autorenporträt
On September 4, 2013, James Comey was sworn in as the seventh director of the FBI. A native of Yonkers, New York, Comey attended the College of William and Mary and the University of Chicago Law School. Afterwards, Comey returned to New York and joined the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York as an assistant US attorney. There, he took on numerous crimes, most notably organized crime in the case of the United States v. John Gambino, et al. Comey then became an assistant US attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, where he prosecuted the high-profile case that followed the 1996 terrorist attack on the US military's Khobar Towers in Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Comey returned to New York after 9/11 to become the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the end of 2003, he was tapped to be the deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice (DOJ) under then-U.S. attorney general John Ashcroft and moved to the Washington, D.C. area. Comey left the DOJ in 2005 to serve as general counsel and senior vice-president at defence contractor Lockheed Martin. Five years later, he joined Bridgewater Associates, a Connecticut-based investment fund, as its general counsel. In early 2013, Comey became a lecturer in law, a senior research scholar and Hertog Fellow in national security law at Columbia Law School. After he was fired as FBI Director, Comey held the King Lecture Chair in Public Policy at Howard University for 2017-18 and served as a Distinguished Lecturer in Public Policy at William and Mary for 2018-2019. In September 2020, his first book, A Higher Loyalty, was made into a Showtime limited series, The Comey Rule.
