Best Of: James Comey / 'Atlanta' Actor Brian Tyree Henry

Former FBI director James Comey tells Terry Gross that he wants to sound the alarm about the "forest fire" of the Trump presidency — and also to defend the FBI against charges of partisanship. "People love the FBI when they think it's on their side," Comey says. "We were not — and are not — on anybody's side." Also, Ken Tucker reviews John Prine's first new album in 13 years, 'The Tree of Forgiveness.' Brian Tyree Henry plays Alfred Miles, a.k.a. rapper "Paper Boi," on the Emmy Award-winning FX series 'Atlanta.' He talks about his parents' record collection and singing in show choir in high school.
