Here are some choice quotes about Mr. Comey from those who know him best:
“Anyone from Allendale that knows the family and grew up around him knows that he is a good person and has an honest character and has the utmost integrity. That doesn’t leave you.” – A classmate of Comey’s at Northern Highlands Regional High School.
“There’s nothing phony about him. He is real.” – a later graduate of James Comey’s High School
“I never was crazy about Trump. I’m convinced that he’s nuts. I thought he belonged in an institution. He was crazy before he became president. Now he’s really crazy.” – J. Brien Comey, 86, a Republican and a former borough councilman (James Comey’s father)
“There’s nobody in Washington that I respect more for his integrity. I think it’s unfortunate that he got caught in this whirlwind of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.” – former Mayor Vincent Barra, a Republican.
