    The OIG Comey Report

    Breaking: IG Report Rips Comey Over Memo Leaks

    This should put a ding in James Comey’s self-fitted halo as a teller of truth, but it probably won’t do much more. In a report released minutes ago, Inspector General Michael Horowitz concludes that the former FBI director violated bureau procedures and Department of Justice policies by retaining memos with classified information, leaked them to the press through a cutout, and then neglected to let the FBI know classified information was in the open:

    In this analysis section, we address whether Comey’s actions violated Department and FBI policies, or the terms of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement. We determined that several of his actions did. We conclude that the Memos were official FBI records, rather than Comey’s personal documents. Accordingly, after his removal as FBI Director, Comey violated applicable policies and his Employment Agreement by failing to either surrender his copies of Memos 2, 4, 6, and 7 to the FBI or seek authorization to retain them; by releasing official FBI information and records to third parties without authorization; and by failing to immediately alert the FBI about his disclosures to his personal attorneys once he became aware in June 2017 that Memo 2 contained six words (four of which were names of foreign countries mentioned by the President) that the FBI had determined were classified at the “CONFIDENTIAL” level.
    Horowitz also rips Comey’s self-serving rationalization for keeping the memos in the first place:

    Comey’s characterization of the Memos as personal records finds no support in the law and is wholly incompatible with the plain language of the statutes, regulations, and policies defining Federal records, and the terms of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement. By definition, Federal records include “all recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, made or received by a Federal agency…in connection with the transaction of public business.”80 This definition expressly covers any “act of creating and recording information by agency personnel in the course of their official duties, regardless of the method(s) or the medium involved.” 81 Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement likewise acknowledged that “[a]ll information acquired by [Comey] in connection with [his] official duties with the FBI…remain[s] the property of the United States of America.”
    I think even MSM folk Snoopy-dancing over Comey not being indicted will find this outcome difficult to spin.

    Who makes the final decision on indicting him or not?

    I've always said these scum walk away
    laughing. There was little to no chance he
    would be held accountable.

    And the people who think oBAMA will be
    called to testify on ANYTHING are just
    delusional.

    There is no way the 1st Black Prez will be
    questioned on anything. And even if he was,
    he'd just smile and lie to you.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    You and my father are on the same page. I talk to him on the phone 2-3 times a week and he agrees that none of these deep state pricks will ever be held accountable for their crimes. They will all walk Scott free and throw it in your face while they do it.
