Breaking news reports that the DOJ has started a probe to
review James Comey's leaking of classified memo's to his freind
that ended up in the New York Times.



At least two of the memos that former FBI Director James Comey gave to a friend outside of the government contained information that officials now consider classified, according to people familiar with the matter, prompting a review by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.

Of those two memos, Mr. Comey himself redacted elements of one that he knew to be classified to protect secrets before he handed the documents over to his friend. He determined at the time that another memo contained no classified information,...

Apparently at least two of the memo's contained classified information.

Word out there that the DOJ has compared James Comey to Wikileaks....

From Judicial Watch:
"it's now been revealed that DOJ compared Comey to WikiLeaks and even admitted some of the info he'd leaked may have contained classified info. JW has DOJ confirmation that Comey was wrong to leak memos to his friend & the media"

Some of the Comey memos contained classified information. Intentionally leaking classified information is a big no no. The referral we sent to DOJ regarding Comey has been buttressed.

Comey himself had no real defense of his actions....
kind of ironic that he did this after exonerating
Hillary Clinton of her mishandling of classified information....


The Justice Department inspector general is now conducting an investigation into classification issues related to the Comey memos, according to a person familiar with the matter. Mr. Comey has said he considered the memos personal rather than government documents. He has told Congress that he wrote them and authorized their release to the media “as a private citizen.”



I guess we will see how justice is served here....
hopefully the DOJ will at least make a determination.

I wont be holding my breath waiting for an indictment....
But wondering what are the potential ramifications?

Yes, and in order to have a special counsel appointed
to oversee the insurance policy!

Its plain as day!

Mark Meadows read some texts last night on the air,
Strzok and Page were aware of the coordination between Comey and Lynch.

There are emails he did not read, but says they show
a level of collusion between Obama and Lynch and Comey.

He mentioned people in the DOJ and FBI that have given
information to Congress that further prove this.

I hope we see just how stealthy Jeff is in
a few weeks, he has all of the bases covered.

ETA:
Comey

He subsequently leaked those memos with the explicit purpose of triggering a special counsel, who was none other than his friend and mentor Robert Mueller.

Experts said that his actions exposed him to potential legal ramifications.

Now, sources familiar with told The Wall Street Journal that Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating the leak.

I'm also relieved to see they acted swiftly.
All of this leaking of classified information is really
setting a terrible precedent for the future.

Remember when Adam Schiff said releasing
The Memo was going to cause a Constitutional Crisis?

These people can't even keep their stories straight!

Just about every word he leaked showed him to be the weasel he said he wasn't.

A lot of what he was communicating to "the team" sounded an awful lot like he was ensuring the hold he had on his position. "I'm in for the long haul guys our deep state hold of the FBI is secure.

The dumb orange goober don't even know he's got. The place settings were lovely though I must say and the wine superb."

I wonder if his book tour is turning out as Grand as he dreamt it?

Well then I guess they had better open an investigation into Nunes and the Republicans on the HPSCI leaking the memos to the press within an hour of getting their hands on them.

old boss James Comey.....and claims he has emails.

The "narrative" will be based on his severe carelessness and reckless behavior !!

McCabe and Comey are confident that no reasonable prosecutor will take the case.

BwaaaaHaHaHa 🤦

Did someone refer the Intel Committee to the DOJ?

What statutes did they violate?

James Comey has violated section 18 USC 641, 18 USC 793, and 18 USC 1924(a)
just with this leaking alone.

That does not include the other violations concerning
Hillary Clintons email, and for lying to congress while under oath.

You would think after HRCs book tour clearly identifed how whack she actually is, that Comey would have thought twice about a “tour” and just pocketed the profits. But then again, his UUUGGGEEE ego probably got in the way of rational, logical thought.

Congress can legally release classified things they believe are in the best interest of the American people. Comey...not so much, especially while “acting” as an FBI Director.

Must be true then. When CNN doesn't run a story, its because it goes against their mandate and agenda.

This book tour gives him ample opportunity to travel around
under cover and communicate clandestinely with his cohorts.

Why do I think this is not their last play?
