[OP-ED]: In his dealings with Trump, Comey was no hero

Former FBI Director James Comey departs a closed committee meeting which followed his much-anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on the FBI's investigation into the Trump administration, and its possible collusion with Russia during the campaign, in the Hart Senate office Building in Washington, DC, USA.

That’s because, if you paid attention to Comey’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, you know that President Trump isn’t the only person with a credibility problem.
