by Fired FBI Director James Comey

Original Article

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released an 83-page long report Thursday morning. It details misconduct by fired FBI Director James Comey and his handling of memos he wrote to memorialize conversations with President Trump. This report is separate from the highly anticipated IG report about the origins of the Russia investigation and FISA abuse. "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

Those who know about the law say that Comey could have a strong defense on this. Head of FBI protecting country from possibility of threat via a president’s connection with a foreign country. The “good intentions” defense. That is where it is believed Comey would go with this in court. But Comey has other problems. Remember that he signed off on the first FISA warrant application saying “verified”. That warrant was obtained largely on the basis of the Steele dossier. Comey is not off the hook yet… We didn’t need him characterized as a would be patriot in the leaking matter when there is something much larger coming, with much bigger fish to be caught...

Haahahah- Same old, same old. Who cares about any of this if Comey is not going to be prosecuted? So what if the IG "excoriated" Comey for mishandling of confidential documents? He could have paraded them while running naked down Wallstreet for all anyone cares! See, the real trick is prosecution for mishandling of documents. Everything else is just so much fluff on the lolly!

Gen. Flynn lost his house defending himself against false charges he was required to plead guilty to. Comey is a bad boy. And we're supposed to believe that justice will ever be served? Sorry, after this, the DOJ has absolutely no credibility.

We are forced to spend over a year and millions of dollars for a finding that procedures were broken? Really? Well, gosh darn! Really appreciate the 83 page report, but I am not reading it, having already been told the conclusion is a farce. By the way, I have already forgotten whatever the first Horowitz report was about, and so has everyone else. Then, we are told there are more "violation of procedure" reports coming from Horowitz--but not today, maybe soon, if not delayed. Who cares really?

How long to they think we are going to accept this kind of thing before the American people say, enough. Do we march on Washington, nah, we all have jobs. Do we riot? Nah, we are peace loving and law abiding citizens. Do we contact our Representatives in Congress? Nah, they ignore us. Do we vote in like minded conservatives? Nah, it doesn’t matter one bit once they get to Washington. So what are good, law abiding tax paying citizens supposed to do when it is clear our government is corrupt and has no intention of riding the government of criminals? Don’t give me that old bromide, we’ll get him on something else that is easier to prove. I am not buying it. If they knew this was a big nothing burger as far as prosecution goes, why waste their time and our money? You bet, I’m frustrated as are many other Americans. We watch as the rich and powerful suffer no consequences for their crimes. Lois Lerner is a perfect example. She’s living large on the pension and bennies provided by the American taxpayer after having committed serious crimes while on the job. No harm, no foul as long as you are democrat. The DOJ and FBI are a disgrace to this country if this stands after all we know about Comey’s involvement in the coup d’etat against our President and Republic. Clearly, politics is king in this country and easily trumps our laws and the Constitution. It is time for AG Barr to rise to the occasion or confirm to we the people what we already know. The Republic is teetering on its last legs. Please, Ralphie, don’t let us down. The fate of the country is in your hands.

Comey is gloating on Twitter even though the report found that he violated numerous FBI policies in taking the reports and disclosing them for personal reasons (and gain). The report says his FBI colleagues were shocked at his misconduct. I would think he, with his do-gooder persona he presents, would be apologizing instead of celebrating that he dodged a bullet.

There should be one gigantic dumpster - maybe in front of the capitol building - where all those scathing reports and scorching letters and damning declarations - chastising the less-than innocent - could be dumped. Then maybe once a year on May 1 - Law Day - there could be an enormous bonfire, and everyone then could feel better because at least something was done.

Reaction came swiftly on Thursday, after the Justice Department inspector general released a report saying that former FBI Director James Comey failed to live up to his responsibility to protect sensitive information. And by using sensitive information to force the appointment of a special prosecutor, the OIG found that Comey "set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees -- and the many thousands more former FBI employees -- who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information." "I wouldn’t say James Comey is out of the woods," Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said. "We're in the pregame show. This is just the beginning," Jay Sekulow, President Trump's attorney said.

Netflix is prepping a series loosely based on a book recounting Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaigns, according to a report from the Hollywood Reporter. The series – The Girls on the Bus – is an adaption of New York Times journalist Amy Chozick’s book recounting Clinton’s failed campaigns, titled Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns and One Intact Glass Ceiling. The book, published last year, details Clinton’s presidential aspirations dating back to her first bid, losing to former President Barack Obama in the Democrat primary of 2008.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Illinois has passed a law requiring that "the history curriculum in public schools include lessons on [sic] the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Illinois and the United States. The lessons must be taught to students before they complete the eighth grade." The law is set to go into effect in 2020. Question 1: Why is someone's sexuality important to history?

The Democratic National Committee recently passed a resolution extolling the values and virtues of "religiously unaffiliated" Americans, noting that they constitute the "largest religious group within the Democratic Party." Ironically, most of those in the "largest religious group" in the Democratic Party are utterly irreligious except for their belief in big government — and their own infallibility. The resolution praising the ungodly was passed unanimously at the DNC's August 24 meeting, appropriately held in San Francisco, California. This elated the Secular Coalition of America, an organization that lobbies for public policy benefiting agnostics, atheists, and humanists.

Dr. Boghossian, an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State, joined two other academics to hoax the purveyors of gender studies and kindred fields committed to turning personal gripes into taxpayer-funded “studies.” Boghossian and his colleagues submitted articles including an analysis of “canine rape culture” and an extract from “Mein Kampf” translated into the language of feminist theory. These were accepted by what counts as “major” journals in these pseudo-disciplines. In 2018, Boghossian and his colleagues made public these hoaxes,

Two years ago, former FBI Director James Comey came out with a book celebrating himself as a paragon of “ethical leadership,” a subject that he later taught at the College of William and Mary. Comey declared, “Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly the truth.” If so, the new Justice Department inspector general report released Thursday establishes that Comey is the very antithesis of the ethical leader he described.

Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement. According to the most recent Gallup Poll on the subject, 88 percent of people who believe homosexuals are “born that way” support the legality of same-sex marriage, while only 39 percent of those who believe homosexuality is the result of environmental factors support the legality of same-sex marriage. So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”?
