DOJ declines to prosecute Comey despite finding that he leaked memo

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!? Barr may as well have recused himself the same as Sessions did if he is not going to pursue criminal conduct. And if he did it with Comey what is he going to do when people higher up are shown to have engaged in crimes in the attempted coup of an American President? People like Clapper and Brennan and Lynch and Yates and *gasp!* Clinton.

I've come to believe no one involved in this entire Russian Fantasia will ever be brought to justice.

And further believe Trump doesn't want them prosecuted, despite his big talk & tweets, because he doesn't want to be perceived as prosecuting/persecuting political rivals during a Presidential campaign.

Never mind what those rivals have put America through these last 3-4 yrs.

Which makes me feel none to supportive of our President right now.

WASHINGTON, Aug 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department has decided not to prosecute former FBI Director James Comey despite an internal investigation that found he improperly leaked information to the news media, the department's Office of Inspector General said on Thursday.
The inspector general's office, which serves as the agency's internal watchdog, said Comey shared a handwritten memo with a friend who described it to the New York Times, in an effort by Comey to pressure the Justice Department to launch an independent investigation into his conversations with President Trump.
The memo described a private conversation in which Trump allegedly asked Comey to drop the FBI's investigation into his then-national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Flynn has since pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russian officials.
Comey decided to share the contents of the memo after Trump fired him in May 2017.
The Inspector General's report said that while that memo did not contain classified material, Comey set a dangerous example when he shared sensitive information to create public pressure for official action.
"Were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director's example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly," the report said.

As you said, Pasto:

BTW, I see that Comey has been gloating on Twitter!

Media and Comey want everyone to focus on the DOJ declination to prosecute. They want everyone to think Comey is either not guilty OR above the law.
They want to enrage and demoralize you. #ComeyIGReport

DAVID HARSANYI: James Comey is proof the ‘deep state’ is something to fear.

UPDATE (FROM GLENN): Also proof that the deep state has something to fear, I suspect

Disagree with all of you.

Comey is disgraced.

Always On Watch said...

How is Comey disgraced? He certainly isn't acting disgraced at his Twitter feed.

Pastorius said...

Total fucking joke. Comey committed Treason and he's not being prosecuted. He tried to subvert our Democratic process and nothing is going to happen.

This is an abomination.
