call me ignorant but, as director of the FBI investigating crimes of confidential information wouldn't it seem fair that he'd have hand written notes of this info?


Yes, that's why it's amazing that he would leak it.

He also took his notes with him after his firing, which was illegal on two counts.
1) he removed government records
2) he endangered classified information

But, not every note had confidential information and Comey said he only leaked 1 memo - thus wouldn't the argument be he didn't leak a memo that had confidential info on it?

Comey is a smart toad, he knew admitting he leaked was a bad thing, he sure as hell wouldnt admit to that knowing it had confidential info.

He probably wouldn't face any punishment for the leak. He didn't necessarily break any laws with that. What he did break laws with was the handling of classified information. His memo's should have never left the FBI, but he took them with him. They are official government records, according to the FBI, and they contain classified information which he removed from a classified setting without the authority to do so.

ETA: I also remember a report saying his friend had all of the memo's, which was why there was a delay in getting them back to the FBI. If true, he shared classified information with a party that was not cleared to see such information, as well.

It seems rather convenient now, in hindsight, that Comey set the "not negligent but extremely careless" precedent, doesn't it?



Except poor Jim has already testified he intended to leak the information and gave his motive to put pressure on the DoJ to appoint a Special Counsel.

If this story is true - Comey is going to jail... or maybe Trump will pardon him

Right, that's why the DOJ appointed a "Special Prosecuter".


The Special Counsel was not appointed by the DOJ to indict the President.

This is important.

Now the anti trump line is he only gave one memo to his friend, but as you point out, comey testifies that he would have his friend give Congress the materials, and they only just recently got these memos, which seems to show the friend had them all. Of not, why did comey wait so long to hand over the memos he still had possession of?

In addition, the nyt article that resulted from the memos he leaked to his friend had details of multiple meetings, which means that even if comey only gave him one memo, he discussed details of multiple memos.

This means that if the article in the op is true, he at the very least discussed classified info with a third party.

In addition, unlike comeys garbage argument with hillary, comey has ADMITTED intent as he testifies he released this info to ensure a special prosecutor.

But he may investigate and prosecute the President.

Who still cannot prosecute a president.


There is a method. It's called Articles of Impeachment. They include crimes that the Special Investigator alerts Congress to. Don't forget Ken Starr.

Wouldn't he need to be impeached first? Can a sitting president be prosecuted just like that? I am not sure about that but...

A sitting president can't be charged and arrested, arraigned and bailed out.......

But, a sitting president can face charges through a processes called impeachment. The case against a sitting presidented is presented to congress, as if they were "The Court", or "The Judge and Jury", for their consideration, by an appointed SPecial Investigator/Prosecutor.

In this case, that's Mueller.

Congress doesn't Prosecute. Congress decides whether or not the charges, presented by the Special Prosecutor, have been proven to be true. And, Congress decides a judicial action or punishment as a result of a conviction.

The house votes to to send the impeachment to the senate if there is enough evidence. The senate votes to impeach.

There is no"prosecution". There is no "punishment" aside from being removed from office.
The removed can THEN be prosecuted in the traditional sense.

LOL you've got to be kidding.


According to the article, Comey wrote 7 memos. He leaked 1 memo to his friend who leaked a portion of that memo to the press. What was leaked was the news that we heard was, Trump asked Comey to "let the Flynn thing go", and that he Trump required loyalty. I don't think that those two tid-bits threaten the integrity of our National Security. But that's just my opinion.

Prosecuting Comey, based on leaking that info, would most certainly bring accusation of retaliation to the Trump Administration's doorstep and highlight questions of Obstruction of Justice.

What do you think the House votes on? How good Trump looks on the golf course?

They vote on the credibility of the prosecutor's allegations, on if there is sufficient evidence of High Crimes and Misdemeanors.



There is no"prosecution". There is no "punishment" aside from being removed from office.


What? Not even a slap on wrist if found guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Why did Ford need to pardon Nixon?

To prevent further prosecution.
And perhaps to cover his own ass and the others not joining nixon in resigning.

That doesn't preclude the motive of retaliation. Comey is protected under federal Whistle Blower protections, I'm sure.
