Your meme is a lie. There is a HUGE difference between the classifications of "secret" and "classified". Your source merely says that 4 of them were secret or classified; meanwhile your #ty meme says that all four are classified.

Seriously, this isn't Facebook. Stop with the memes.


"Secret" and "Confidential" are both levels of "classification". Ergo, if four are "secret" or "confidential", then all four are "classified".

Thanks for offering your unsolicited opinion of another member, and your opinion of their expertise of a subject matter. You should know that your opinion of anything is of no consequence to me in any way shape or form. Should you let me know it is raining outside, I would first walk outside to check prior to believing anything you post.

My opinion of the member you brought up varies vastly from your own. I find his analysis to be mostly accurate, and when he does not know something he states that he does not know.

All that aside do you have an opinion as to fired fbi employees and taking material that belongs to the fbi, or was this just another of your attempts to off topic this thread?




Innie doesn't bother me...his logic is usually laughable at best.

Once again, now he demands proof of my FBI employment, but yet he has no proof to back up his own claims.


My employment with the FBI was 11/06 to 06/12...although technically I am still employed by the FBI.

I guess he needs my name and ssn, but that won't happen.

When were the memos classified?

As we have learned with the Hillary email investigation, even emails that contained publicly-available info were classified when it came in to government hands once the investigation began.

That does not mean the info was classified at the time, nor does it mean that Comey violated any laws.

Please provide full context and not more propaganda.


You're cooking that guys goose! Keep up the good work!


You keep spouting this BS....I will keep correcting you forever.

www.wrc.noaa.gov...


Question 19: If information that a signer of the SF 312 knows to have been classified appears in a public source, for example, in a newspaper article, may the signer assume that the information has been declassified and disseminate it elsewhere? Answer: No. Information remains classified until it has been officially declassified. Its disclosure in a public source does not declassify the information. Of course, merely quoting the public source in the abstract is not a second unauthorized dis- closure. However, before disseminating the information elsewhere or confirming the accuracy of what appears in the public source, the signer of the SF 312 must confirm through an authorized official that the information has, in fact, been declassified. If it has not, further dissemination of the information or confirmation of its accuracy is also an unauthorized disclosure.

I don't believe the assertion in your claim has been proven yet, but I am usure.

Do you have confirmation?

You say that, but it was I that was right about the email issue and you proved to us that you had no clue what you were talking about.



Once again, now he demands proof of my FBI employment, but yet he has no proof to back up his own claims.


I made no such demand. Now you are going to make up lies?

Oh well. Not the first time you've done that.



My employment with the FBI was 11/06 to 06/12...although technically I am still employed by the FBI. I guess he needs my name and ssn, but that won't happen.


Nope. I don't need you to prove anything. Even if we are to believe you, it does not prove you know what you are talking about. You were wrong many times before and you continue to be so, despite your attempts to use a logical fallacy as a way to bolster your inaccuracies.

You've provided a link claiming the JD is looking in to the email issue again.

Has that been confirmed?

In addition to what broke today, had you somehow missed this?
www.usatoday.com...



WASHINGTON — In early January, news that the Justice Department’s inspector general launched an investigation into the government's disputed handling of the Hillary Clinton email inquiry was quickly overtaken by the chaotic run-up to President Trump’s inauguration. Nearly a year later, Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s wide-ranging review of the FBI and Justice’s work in the politically-charged Clinton case now looms as a potential landmine for Russia special counsel Robert Mueller. For months, Horowitz’s investigation — which has amassed interviews with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey and other key officials — had been grinding on in near anonymity. That is, until earlier this month when the inspector general acknowledged that Mueller was alerted to a cache of text messages exchanged between two FBI officials on his staff that disparaged Trump.

It is not like the doj hasn't been looking into this for a YEAR now.

Exactly. A year old that we knew about. The claims of the sources you used said it was a new probe.

So where is the source verifying the new probe?

As to the question of taking FBI material home, that is allowed for work purposes.

People can have access to classified information at home, if it is necessary to the function of their position, as long as it is kept per NSA guidelines.

Taking stuff home to keep is iffy. You shouldn't have personal stuff on FBI computers in the first place.

When I left, I moved all my work stuff to a shared drive so everyone would have access to it after I left. I had no personal information, so there was no issue with that.

In no instance would anyone be allowed to keep classified information indefinitely, or after they leave their job.

Also, if one bothered to read the information posted:

www.wrc.noaa.gov...

One will find this:


Sec. 1.9 Classification Challenges .

(a) Authorized holders of information who, in good faith, believe that its classification status is improper are encouraged and expected to challenge the classification status of the information in accordance with agency procedures established under paragraph (b), below. (b) In accordance with implementing directives issued pursuant to this order, an agency head or senior agency official shall establish procedures under which authorized holders of information are encouraged and expected to challenge the classification of information that they believe is improperly classified or unclassified. These procedures shall assure that: (1) individuals are not subject to retribution for bringing such actions; (2) an opportunity is provided for review by an impartial official or panel; and (3) individuals are advised of their right to appeal agency decisions to the Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel established by section 5.4 of this order.


So as you can see, if you believe something should not be classified or is classified improperly, there are channels to follow to resolve the issue.

As some posters like to speculate, the government DOES NOT classify stuff willy nilly and for no reason at all.... or as they like to claim, the government classifies damn near everything.

What does the meme matter? Does it negate Comey broke the law? Did the meme trigger you?

You shouldn’t be so touchy... not like you’re going to prison with them, are you?





Idiots before you used the race card every time people disagreed with them..
Now people like yourself, instead of race card, use the "you are just a snowflake", "triggered", "butthurt" card every time someone exposes your stupidity or questions the crap you post.
Hilarious.



Calling someone names is against T&C but obviously not above someone on the left like yourself.
I do find the hypocrisy in your one single post staggering.

You start out by calling me names while attempting to take some high road comparing me to racists because I merely pointed out another persons emotional reply to the OP. Then continue down the road of insulting people all while not contributing anything to the OP.

And you think I'm hilarious....






Sounds like the Butthurt Snowflake was Triggered.

Yeah, Comey should be locked up along with Mueller for cover ups, corruption and obstruction of Justice.
Throw some drug trafficking and money laundering in there too.

You speak too soon about things you know nothing about.
But that is typical.




Yes. My opinion is that your question is way too simple and obviously shows the lack of understanding of the importance of context.

Asking about fired employees and property of the employer is "way too simple"? Sorry, just because you do not understand the responsibility that some of these positions hold, others actually do. It very well may come down to the employment agreements signed by Mr Comey at the outset of his employment. Something someone who has been employed by that employer would understand and have experience with.
There is no dispute Comey made notes from some of his meetings with Trump. There is no dispute Comey did not bring up any issues from such meetings to his boss.




Same thing with the 30,000 emails hillary deleted.

The FBI said they were not her property.

News breaking right now that Robert Mueller has received corroborating evidence for Comeys memos and trumps efforts to control the investigation.
He asked McGhan to pressure Sessions to not recuse himself and that he exploded when he did.
He has notes of Reince Preibus that corroborate Comeys memos about how trump had pressured Comey to tell everybody he wasn't being investigated. He has memos made by Comeys associates that confirm what he told them about trump pressuring him to end the investigation into Mike Flynn.
Looks like the obstruction case is moving right along.
