    While James Comey was indeed courageous in speaking truth to power, it is important that his nomination be explored carefully by the Senate Judiciary Committee: some of America’s worst abuses of civil liberties occurred under his watch. According to Anthony Romero, Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union:

    “Comey signed off on enhanced interrogation techniques that constitute torture, including waterboarding. He also oversaw the indefinite detention without charge or trial of an American citizen picked up in the United States and then held for years in a military brig.”

    We need to know more about the context of such decisions, more about his direct role in them, and how his attitudes may have changed or have been refined with benefit of hindsight.
