Fired FBI director James Comey seems to be on a campaign to protect his legacy.
On Saturday, he spoke at the Aspen Ideas Festival, defending his controversial actions before the 2016 presidential election and likening President Donald Trump to a forest fire that must be “contained,” reports Scott Condon of the Aspen Times.
In an interview with journalist Katie Couric in front of several hundred audience members, he said history will vindicate him in the Hillary Clinton email controversy.
“Whether you agree with them or not, they were good decisions in the way that they were made and values that guided them,” Comey said. “I actually think in the long run people will see that.”
