Proving yet again that news happens outside the newsroom, WGBH News' Jared Bowen recently sat down with former FBI Director James Comey, who was in downtown Boston ahead of a speaking engagement. Meredith Nierman, WGBH Director of Photography, captured the exclusive interview. Comey, who was dismissed from his post by President Donald Trump in 2017, shared his thoughts about the President, newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the 25th Amendment, and, locally, the infamous Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum art theft.

Update: Bowen followed up with Comey in November. In their exclusive interview at WGBH Studio at the Boston Public Library, Comey talked about the need for transparency in government oversight, the personnel shakeup at the Department of Justice, Whitey Bulger’s murder in a federal prison and even his own use of private emails during his time at the FBI.
