(Reuters) - James Comey, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who was fired last year by U.S. President Donald Trump, will teach a course on ethical leadership at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, the school said on Friday.
Comey has been by turns castigated and lionized by both Democrats and Republicans for overseeing high-stakes FBI investigations that overshadowed the election campaigns of Trump and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, in 2016.
Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly the truth, Comey said in a statement released by the college, the countrys second oldest.
Comey graduated from William & Mary in 1984 with a double major in chemistry and religion, and will teach for a full academic year beginning this fall.
The schools president, Taylor Reveley, praised his abiding commitment to ethical behavior in a statement.

1) This informs me of the level of ethics in Harvard, and,
2) This most reminds me of the UN Committee on Human Rights, that had these nations as members: continue as members of the Council: Angola, China, Turkey, Somalia, Cuba, Iraq, Venezuela, Pakistan, and others as bad.
After an earlier post with a NYT description of its top quality panel of journalistic standards (ok to start laughing)
now we hear of an “ethical” Comey!
Next: Hillary to become Reverend Hillary Clinton.
James Comey teaching ethics is like Jeff Dahmer instructing on gourmet cooking.
Comey should be in Prison.
Reminds me of the Fordham U Ben Javits School of Law (Jacob’s brother) who had his law license suspended by the New York bar in the 1950s for unethical behavior in his practice. They never did change the name after suspension. Perhaps they might now consider changing it to the Comey School of Law if Comey gets disbarred after he is indicted.
This much is certain:
Anyone who goes around tooting their horn about their own virtue is most certainly corrupt to the core.
This is an embarrassment for Virginia.
W&M should borrow from the old “Don’t Eat That — Eat This” diet books, and have Comey co-teach with an ethical person.
William and Mary has certainly given themselves a black eye with this.
Babylon Bee has been scooped. :)
What gets me about this guy is he spent all that time going to college, all that money, all that studying then spent all that time working his way up, long hours as a law clerk, lawyer then makes it to US attorney, makes a name for himself and makes it all the way to the head of the FBI......and then he throws it all away for a two bit corrupt nasty bitch who wouldn’t give him the time of day if he were drowning. Why do people do this for Hillary? It’s like almost this religious fervor, as if she is the Messiah and they give their lives willingly for her.
It’s am embarrassment to humanity itself.
Even gorillas have more ethics than this one.
“There are two systems of ethical philosophy... One system is that which makes virtue a means; the other, that which makes it an end. According to the one, we are to practice virtue for the good that will come of it to ourselves or our fellow-beings; the other, we practice virtue for its own sake, for its intrinsic fitness and excellence, without reference to ulterior consequences, save when, and so far as, those consequences are essential factors in determining the intrinsic quality of the action.”
Comey fits the bill of neither.
I guess Harvey Weinstein is going to teach “Sexual Harassment in the Workplace, Civil and Criminal Procedures”
Reveley is no longer there. He was fired after he had a cross removed from an original windvane on the Wren Building, built in 1693.
The removal sparked a round of alumni backing out of financial commitments to the school, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.
That is question I have been asking myself ever since I heard of the Clintons!
My apologies. Reveley is gone. But he was not the head of school that removed the cross.
It was Reveley’s predecessor, Gene Nichol, who removed the cross from Wren chapel. Nichol was fired a couple of years later over a controversy involving his approval of The Sex Workers’ Art Show on campus.
