More evidence that Comey deserved to be fired

In his memo, Mr. Rosenstein quoted former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who served in the Clinton Administration, and former Deputy AG Larry Thompson, who served under George W. Bush. They described the Comey method in the Clinton case as “real-time, raw-take transparency taken to its illogical limit, a kind of reality TV of federal criminal investigation” that is “antithetical to the interests of justice.”

Perhaps we finally have an appropriate time for Mr. Comey to publicly announce his thoughts and offer real transparency. If he can make the case that early drafting of conclusions—before witnesses have been interviewed—serves the interests of justice, no doubt many Americans are eager to hear it.
