Fahey was an immense source of inspiration top Comey and contributed invaluably to professional development of Comey. Fahey provided Comey with an opportunity to realize his “dreams of energizing it to make bigger contributions in all kinds of areas, especially against violent crime and public corruption.” Unlike Rudy, Fahey was liberal, providing Comey with an opportunity to exercise his independent professional judgments in all situations.

These skills soon catapulted Comey to be the face of the organization. Provided an opportunity, time and space, Comey left no doubt the he was destined for greater things.
