“They’ll have to put up with me for the next six and a half years,” James Comey, according to the Associated Press, told an Internet conference from Boston.

Donald Trump has recently accused the Obama administration of having put his phone to the wire during the election campaign, an allegation that Comey, although discreetly, insisted that it be upheld by the US Department of Justice.

In a speech addressed to law enforcement officials and company managers, Comey further stated that the FBI is reviewing its focus on the challenges posed by encryption, considering that a balance must be found between private interests and the need for federal services Access to information.
