Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Wednesday that he referred former FBI Director James Comey for criminal prosecution earlier this year after concluding he leaked sensitive materials to a friend.
“We are required by the [Inspector General] Act to send information that we’ve identified that could plausibly be criminal to the Department of Justice,” said Mr. Horowitz, confirming what amounted to a criminal referral.

So Horowitz made a criminal referral to the Department of Justice but the Department of Justice under Barr declined to prosecute. Is this the import of the information?
Horowitz said Comey shared ''sensitive'' material and sent it to Barr and Barr said it's not enough to prosecute. It was ''sensitive'' material and not ''classified material.
So now what? Or do I have that wrong?

Or option 3: they're two sides of the same coin, both pushing the establishment's agenda and acting as controlled opposition to one another to divide the populace down political and social lines.
It's the age old divide and conquer technique with bread and circus sprinkled throughout.

Sharing sensitive information with the press may be a crime, depending upon circumstances. The biggest hurdle is did Comey's position allow him to do so. A case like that has never been tested.
