Slime And Punishment

During a news conference yesterday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders – who I love, by the way – made the case for prosecuting former FBI director James Comey.

Sarah Sanders pointed to Comey’s acknowledgement during a June congressional hearing that he authorized the leaking of a memo about his conversations with the president to The New York Times.

“The memos that Comey leaked were created on a FBI computer while he was the director,” Sanders said during Wednesday’s briefing. “He claims they were private property. They clearly follow the protocol of an official FBI document.”

Sanders added, “Leaking FBI memos on a sensitive case, regardless of classification, violates federal laws including the Privacy Act, standard FBI employee agreement and non-disclosure agreement all personnel must sign. I think that’s pretty clean and clear that that would be a violation.” (H/TAOSHQ)

Agreed. Comey drafted the memo on an FBI computer before leaking it to his media buddies. If any other agent had done the same, that agent would be fired and prosecuted. Not doing so would not only be hypocritical, but also further damage an institution already suffering from credibility issues.

  1. This whole damned thing about “OMG Trump -Russia” has been nothing but a fabricated Deep State coup attempt from the beginning. And IMHO the FBI has never had credibility. The most politicized and corrupt law enforcement agency in the nation!

  2. The Comey investigation sprang from Hillary’s use of a private email server and her failure to turn over all her work related documents, as required by law, on her last day as Sec State.
    That and the Russian hack of Hillary’s insecure email server are the direct consequences of her own actions.
    Pointing fingers at Comey is like blaming the fire department when they come to save the house that you set on fire.

  3. The FBI doesn’t exactly instill trustworthiness within the citizenry. If they don’t look like buffoons, they look like corrupt liars. Law enforcement at the local level suffers from their behavior. I’m not feeling the love when it comes to the DOJ and Jeff Sessions. He needs to actually prosecute SOMEBODY in a position of trust that has abused their power and position. I think a bunch of garbage got stuck in the drain while somebody was trying to drain the swamp.

        1. I ran into a Fibbie in a very small branch office in Modesto CA, in the mid to late nineties, who was cracking jokes about Waco. Probably the closest I’ve every come to assaulting a federal office, since burning infants alive is such a hoot!

  4. Political Correctness has done them in like most government agencies. Look at the FBI Lab scandal from 20 years ago. Promoting people that should not be promoted.

  5. Comey is a disgusting piece of work. How he could end up not being prosecuted is beyond me. Of course, I thought the same with Lois Lerner and she gets to sit back and collect her big old pension month after month, This once great government just keeps circling the drain.
