Former FBI Director James Comey (below) has scored a lucrative part-time lecture position at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Comey will refund his $100,000 haul from the “Gwendolyn S. and Colbert I. King Endowed Chair in Public Policy” position to offer scholarships to students from foster homes entering the historically black university.
The first appearance for the much-maligned 2016 Trump victory architect will be the September convocation for students.
The ensuing five lecture topics “will be decided after the ex-FBI chief converses with student leaders and other campus stakeholders.”
Meanwhile, in the longstanding tradition of Washington beneficiaries, Time reports:
Comey’s tenure at Howard University will coincide with the release of his widely anticipated book, which is expected to be published in the Spring of 2018.
According to Washington Examiner, Comey commanded the trust and approval of colleagues, as documented on score sheets from three years’ worth of FBI “internal memos” released to news organizations for fulfillment of FOIA requests (which the FBI, unlike the State Department, apparently honors).
On a scale of 1 to 5, with 3.81 or higher indicating success, Comey’s subordinates reportedly gave him at least a 3.81 on “nearly every item.” Grade inflation!
Comey received a score of 4.47 from employees when asked to grade the former director on the “trust and confidence” they have in him as a leader. The former FBI director received a 4.48 from subordinates on whether they would work for Comey again, and a 4.22 when asked if he is humble.
Employees gave Comey a score of 4.38 for being someone more interested in leading than being liked.
The scores reportedly dipped slightly this year compared to 2016.
Comey was replaced by Christopher Wray (above) at the FBI on August 2. Five Democratic Senators voted against Wray’s confirmation, including Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (NY).
Al Franken (MN) missed the vote.
