Much publicized memoirs of former FBI director James Comey about his relationship with US President Donald Trump has been translated into Persian. The 350-page book “A Higher Loyalty” has been translated by Masoud Mirzai and Behjat Abbasi and published by Jouyandeh Publication, IRNA reported. Originally published by Macmillan Publishers in April, it discusses ethics and leadership Comey encountered throughout his life, his career, and his relationship with the beleaguered president who has been grappling with major personal, moral, legal and administrative problems ever since taking office last year.  In the past few months the US mass media has been talking regularly and openly about his impeachment and eventual removal from office.  Trump fired Comey in May 2017. According to, the former FBI boss shares his never-before-told experience from some of the high-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader. Comey, 57, served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. He previously served as US attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the US deputy attorney general in the administration of President George W. Bush.  From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration’s policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the probe of US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s leaked e-mail as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey was involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history.
