In an interview with PBS NewsHour, former FBI director James Comey claims to have once sung Beyoncé's "Sandcastles" during an FBI briefing after receiving a file with the code name "Sandcastles."

“They always have weird code names,” Comey explains. “It was ‘Sandcastles,’ and so I said ‘Beyoncé!’ And I was the only one in the room who had any idea what I was talking about. People were like ‘What?’ I said, ‘We built sandcastles’… Honest to God, I sung like that.”

Comey is on a press tour following the release of his memoir, A Higher Loyalty, which details his role as FBI director from 2013 to 2017, when he was fired by President Donald Trump. In the same interview, Comey claims to also enjoy music by Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar.
