FBI head honcho James Comey behaves just as one might expect a 2013 President Barack Obama-appointed FBI director to behave.
He conducts himself with a confidence that seems unflappable, displays arrogance and, just like the president who appointed him, sometimes throws taunting in for good measure.
“FBI Director James Comey has warned that absolute privacy does not exist in the US, noting that a judge can compel anyone to testify about their communications – and even their memories. (CNN, March 9, 2017)
“Even our communications with our spouses, with our clergy members, with our attorneys are not absolutely private in America,” Comey said. “In appropriate circumstances, a judge can compel anyone of us to testify in court about those very private communications.
“He went on to state that although Americans have a “reasonable expectation” of privacy in their homes, cars, and on their devices, the government can still “invade our private spaces.”
“Even our memories aren’t private. Any of us can be compelled to say what we saw…,” Comey said.”
Comey said all this as if the loss of the privacy of American citizens is a loss that cannot be retrieved.
