When serving under President George W. Bush, Comey won praise from Democrats for his attempt to stop the reauthorization of a warrantless eavesdropping program in 2004 as a high-ranking Department of Justice official.

After serving as deputy attorney general from 2003 to 2005, Comey took a positions as general counsel of defense contractor Lockheed Martin and later at investment firm Bridgewater Associates.
