Comey’s MIS-Named Book Title

Former FBI Director James Comey outwardly expresses reverence for honor, justice, leadership and integrity. He behaves like a man who does so inwardly as well. Unfortunately, he betrayed those core beliefs in a major way during the Hillary Clinton investigation “matter”.

As a result, Comey is dealing with cognitive dissonance, as defined by Leon Festinger:

“Two opinions, or beliefs, or items of knowledge are dissonant with each other if they do not fit together; that is, if they are inconsistent, or if, considering only the particular two items, one does not follow from the other.” Dr. Leon Festinger, 1957

You see, when Comey rattled off Hillary’s crimes on July 5, 2016 and then publicly exonerated her, he also had to lie about why he did so. As a result, he must be conflicted with cognitive dissonance if he has a conscience.

Comey wrote Hillary’s exoneration letter two months before interviewing her. We also know that the letter was edited by one of Comey’s subordinates, Peter Strzok, a Hillary supporter. Why did Strzok override Comey? Comey admitted to calling the Hillary investigation a “matter” instead of an investigation.

In testimony, Comey had to admit Hillary committed crimes and that he did nothing.

Attorney Victoria Toensing once relayed a story about Comey:

When he was the deputy Attorney General and lawyers would argue with him at the Justice Department, he would turn to them and say I think your moral compass is askew. Let me tell you who’s moral compass is askew. James Comey.

That is cognitive dissonance.

Bizarre Comey Behavior

Earlier this year, Comey was publishing cryptic tweets under a pseudonym Reinhold Niebuhr. After the internet discovered it, Comey began tweeting as himself.

Comey’s tweets are very bizarre. They smack of overcompensation for cognitive dissonance. In this one, he reveals he’s contemplating the serenity prayer:

The irony is palpable. The serenity prayer reads as follows:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

The irony as it relates to Comey can be found in each line:
1.) The biggest thing Comey could change but did not was his decision not to recommend prosecution for Hillary.
2.) Comey showed he had no courage when he chose not to recommend a criminal for prosecution.
3.) Comey absolutely did not show the wisdom to accept the difference; he did the opposite.

Here he is quoting the man whose name he used for a time:

This one is particularly interesting because Comey allowed lies to win the day with the Hillary scandal. Yet, he seems to be advocating for the truth to be told (again, extreme cognitive dissonance):

The same can be said for this tweet. It’s clear Comey reveres that which he no longer has, as a result of his own decisions:

This tweet almost begets sympathy for Comey. Based on his own actions, it’s easy to wonder if he’s referring to himself:

In this tweet, Comey defends the institution he single-handedly helped tarnish. It shows that he is conflicted with the damage he has done:

Then, soon after Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was interrogated by the House Permanent Select Committee in Intelligence (HPSCI) for several hours, Comey tweeted this:

Plastered on Comey’s Twitter Page is the title of his new book, A HIGHER LOYALTY. Of course, that he would write a book with that title after exhibiting the opposite says it all.

Comey Behavior is Psychological Reaction to What He’s Done

That Comey seriously betrayed what were once his core principles – on the biggest political stage possible – is not in doubt. As a result, neither is his reaction to doing so.

Here is what Festinger had to say about how people with cognitive dissonance react:

1. The existence of dissonance [or inconsistency], being psychologically uncomfortable, will motivate the person to try to reduce the dissonance and achieve consonance [or consistency].
2. When dissonance is present, in addition to trying to reduce it, the person will actively avoid situations and information which would likely increase the dissonance.

In the clip below, Comey is first defensive and then lies when he says the investigation was done the way you would want it to be done. No, it wasn’t:
