--- Says vaguely Putin "intervened" to help Trump and discredit the election. Pretends to magically know what Putin was thinking. (If Putin wanted to have Trump as president, Putin would NOT want the election discredited. If Putin wanted to weaken America, he would not want Trump's economic/military revitalization; instead he would back sickly, inept Hillary and her anti-straight/White/male program. She had approved a huge US uranium sale to Russia; Russians had paid Clintons $2,975,000.)
--- Comey says he and Obama talked about helping Hillary. (He sees nothing wrong in this, though it contradicts his preaching against involvement in politics.) Obama feared that announcing Trump-Putin tie could backfire: voters might resent such presidential manipulation. And Hillary was going to win anyway.
--- Meanwhile Comey was secretly using Russian disinformation paid for by Hillary (Steele Dossier) for warrants to spy on Trump's campaign. He omits this entirely. He says the dossier was privately compiled and disseminated, but never links it to Hillary.
--- Weeks before the election, Trump declared the system was rigged. Why would he say that, if he and Putin were rigging it? Obama denied it could be rigged. Why would he deny it, if he thought the Russians were doing it? (He did of course want to cover the Russian/Hillary/Steele lies and Comey's illegal spying.) Comey says nothing about this.
--- When Trump won, Comey was shocked. (Hillary did not appear Election night, probably drunk; Trump doesn't drink. Democrat insurrectionism began at once: denials that Trump was president-elect, calls to "Resist", riots, beating and shooting Trump supporters, jokes about killing Trump, attempts to corrupt the Electoral College -- all by hypocrites who had denounced Trump for not pre-accepting defeat. Comey omits all of this.)
--- By early Jan, 2017, Comey and perjured spy-chiefs James Clapper and John Brennan completed their scheme to discredit the election, doing what they were blaming on Putin. These coup-plotters announced the Russia hoax as a confirmed fact, making better relations with Russia impossible for Trump, a grave disservice to world peace. Punishing Trump for winning the election was more important to them. Comey stayed at FBI; the other two resigned.
--- Comey became obsessed with what he considered Trump's over-estimate of the Inaugural crowd. He thought Trump resembled a Mafia don because of his friendliness. Once Trump informally remarked, "I hope you can let this go," re persecution of Michael Flynn. Comey pretends that this merciful thought was a gross offense.
--- Comey secretly loathed Trump and sought to thwart him. Finally realizing this, Trump fired him. Comey's feelings were badly hurt. He had refused to be loyal to Trump, but expected Trump to be loyal to him.
--- Comey blames Trump for not hating Putin, who invades other countries (Russian-populated parts of Georgia and Ukraine that sought Russian protection.) (While Putin has been in power, we have wrecked five Muslim states above, killing a million and ruining the lives of countless millions. Putin did nothing like that. Comey omits this.)
--- Comey concludes that Trump is a psychotic monster. All must join the Courts & Media to bring Trump down. (Since Roe, we have exterminated 50,000,000 unborn babies on the Naziesque pretext that they aren't people. Trump opposes this; Dems strongly support it, and now support the murder of babies born alive if the mother had wanted to abort them. Comey omits the issue.)

I love a book read by the author, and this is no exception. Comey's book gives insight into three different Presidents, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how the FBI works with the White House. It's an autobiography entwined with the story of how a man became the head of the FBI and then was fired at the height of his career by a controversial President. It's a great book, but even better when told by the author via this audiobook.

Told in his own words, a man of admitted faults , with a burning loyalty to his Country and a passion for the truth, is cast aside for his principles.

True listening is actually that period of silence in allowing someone's words to reach your conscious brain.
