James Comey spent the better part of his career serving in federal law enforcement in positions ranging from line prosecutor to U.S. attorney to deputy attorney general to director of the FBI. Comey details his years of service in his recent bestselling book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” which has grabbed headlines for the former director’s accounts of his interactions with President Trump and decisionmaking surrounding the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

On May 11, Comey joined Brookings Senior Fellow and Lawfare Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Wittes for a live taping of the Lawfare Podcast in a conversation about the book and beyond. Their discussion was followed by audience questions.
