Comey finally learned his fate and if he would be marched off to federal prison.
And William Barr’s decision on jailing James Comey will leave you speechless.
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz submitted his long-awaited report on James Comey’s passing off memos of his conversations to a friend so they could be leaked to the press.
Donald Trump, his allies in Congress and millions of the President’s supporters across America contended Comey was a liar, a leaker, and a criminal.
Horowitz’s report was devastating for Comey.
In the report, Horowitz rapped Comey for failing to execute his duties in a professional or lawful manner.
“The responsibility to protect sensitive law enforcement information falls in large part to the employees of the FBI who have access to it through their daily duties,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote in his report.
Inspector General Horowitz also bashed Comey for failing to protect sensitive information.
“Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility,” Horowitz declared. “By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees — and the many thousands more former FBI employees — who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.”
Horowitz also referred Comey to the Justice Department for mishandling classified information.
Comey passed memos to his law professor friend – two of which contained “confidential” information – so they could be leaked to the press in the event President Trump fired Comey.
The former FBI Director intended this course of action to result in the Deputy Attorney General appointing a special prosecutor.
Despite the Inspector General writing a report declaring Comey as a corrupt and unethical potential criminal, the former FBI Director launched into his Baghdad Bob routine and claimed he was the one owed an apology.
“DOJ IG ‘found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media.’ I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me, but a quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice,” Comey tweeted.
Americans could not believe this arrogance.
Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist wrote, “James Comey, who was just found by the Inspector General to have violated President Trump’s civil liberties and to have violated FBI standards in his campaign of leaking a false Russia collusion narrative in vengeance against Trump, is demanding apologies from his critics.”
And President Trump delivered the final word stating that the only reason Attorney General didn’t prosecute Comey was out of simple fairness.
“The fact that James Comey was not prosecuted for the absolutely horrible things he did just shows how fair and reasonable Attorney General Bill Barr is. So many people and experts that I have watched and read would have taken an entirely different course. Comey got Lucky!” the President explained.
And that is the truth.
Comey’s memos were marked with “confidential” information – which is the lowest form of classification.
And these designations were done after the fact.
The case was a judgment call and Barr extended Comey the benefit of the doubt – which stands in stark contrast to the heavy-handed political vendetta Comey and his deep state allies carried out against Donald Trump and his associates.
