Former Director of the FBI James Comey officially left the unemployment rolls this week, joining the faculty of his former college to -ironically- teach a course on “Ethical Leadership” beginning this fall.
According to Politico, the former FBI chief will begin teaching at The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia at the start of the 2018 fall semester; lecturing impressionable young students on the virtues of “ethical leadership.”
“I am thrilled to have the chance to engage with William & Mary students about a vital topic — ethical leadership,” Comey said in a statement. “Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly to the truth.”
“Building and maintaining that kind of leadership, in both the private sector and government, is the challenge of our time,” Comey said. “There is no better place to teach and learn about it than the W&M Washington Program.”
James Comey was fired by President Trump in May 2017 over his mishandling of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Days later, the former bureau chief may have violated federal law by intentionally leaking classified memos to an associate at Columbia University.
