"Judgment is protected and nurtured by stepping away from the work. Sleeping is not a moral failure. You arise refreshed in a way that allows you to see your work in a new light.”
-James B. Comey Jr., director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States Government, speaking with Daniel Attridge, dean of the law school at The Catholic University of America, on April 12 for the Brendan F. Brown Lecture Series.
Prior to serving as FBI director, Comey served on the Board of Directors of HSBC Holdings until July 2013 and as a Senior Research Scholar and a Hertog Fellow on National Security Law at Columbia Law School in New York City. He also worked in the Department of Justice as United States Deputy Attorney General from December 2003 to August 2005, serving in President George W. Bush's administration.
