“The conversation that night in January, Mr. Comey now believes, was a harbinger of his downfall this week as head of the F.B.I., according to two people who have heard his account of the dinner.
“As described by the two people, the dinner offers a window into Mr. Trump’s approach to the presidency, through Mr. Comey’s eyes. A businessman and reality television star who never served in public office, Mr. Trump may not have understood that by tradition, F.B.I. directors are not supposed to be political loyalists, which is why Congress in the 1970s passed a law giving them 10-year terms to make them independent of the president.”
In a Private Dinner, Trump Demanded Loyalty. Comey Demurred.
The New York Times
So when Comey was summoned one night
to a one-on-one dinner delight
with his majesty trump,
he was played for a chump
by demands for a loyalty rite.
