Geoff recently wrote an OpEd piece for Newsweek. In the piece, he explores the comparisons made between James Comey and Archibald Cox.
The firing of James Comey as FBI Director has caused a media sensation, but any comparison to President Nixon’s firing of Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in the “Saturday Night Massacre” is downright silly. The firing of Cox was the unprecedented removal an impartial outsider selected to investigate criminal charges. Comey was a discredited agency head who grossly abused his legal authority.
