James Comey And His Leaks
James Comey And His Leaks
Surprise! James Comey is under investigation again. This time it’s regarding leaks to the media of additional classified information.
“Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry.
The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison.”
Yes, that is the New York Times running with the story. However, the article really glosses over lots of pesky details in order to make James Comey look good
Very friendly telling of events here about Comey's apparent leaking to compliant media. If you read those articles and thought he wasn't a source, you're not very smart, though. "Justice Dept. Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused on Comey" https://t.co/HgtYk7iNAV

…when the reality is, this makes him look even worse.
Keep in mind, Comey has already been on the hot seat for leaking his private conversations with President Trump to the media. So, this news does not surprise me. If you do it once and are successful, then it is even odds it will happen again.
The leaks in question involve events in 2017. What was going on then?
“”In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received what was described as a Russian intelligence document claiming a tacit understanding between the Clinton campaign and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server.
The Russian document cited a supposed email describing how then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter. If true, the revelation of such an understanding would have undermined the integrity of the FBI’s investigation.
Current and former officials have said that Comey relied on the document in making his July decision to announce on his own, without Justice Department involvement, that the investigation was over. That public announcement — in which he criticized Clinton and made extensive comments about the evidence — set in motion a chain of other FBI moves that Democrats now say helped Trump win the presidential election.””
Oh. Well, isn’t that interesting. Something to ponder while we go back to the story that broke last night. Not only is Loretta Lynch now on the hot seat, Debbie Wasserman Shultz is as well. It seems that the latest information came from material that Dutch Intelligence managed to get off of some Russian servers. According to the information, Debbie wanted to make sure her pal Loretta ensured that Hillary wouldn’t be prosecuted for her email and server (wipes with a bleach bit cloth) infractions.
Keep in mind, while the leaks seemed to have happened in 2017, all of this took place in 2016. Debbie goes to bat for Queen Hillary. Then James Comey announces in July – BEFORE the Democrat convention, that Hillary is no longer a suspect. And yet, Debbie got canned at the convention. With that happening and this story now, I do have to wonder what else we don’t know given that Debbie ended up persona non grata during that week. Imran Awan perhaps?
Yet, according to the New York Times, all these leaks took place YEARS ago! It’s as if 2017 was like one hundred years ago instead of two. *Yes, I know it is 2020, but just barely.
A source says of the NYT story about Comey leaks: "Great example of need to read NYT like the Soviets read Pravda – assume 90 percent of it is propaganda, and try to find the nuggets of useful information amidst all the lies and spin." https://t.co/4oiwPeGWlh

Leaks are bad and so is lying! James Comey was tired of the lies because all the lies have numbed us to everything!
The New York Times is clutching pearls over the idea that this new investigation is political in nature. With the implication that SUDDENLY this is happening because of a certain impeachment circus.
As if the Democrats haven’t been engaged in deflection of their own? Yes, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, I’m looking at you.
As I stated above, we already know that James Comey has lied about damn near everything and leaked stuff to make himself look better and Trump bad. The fact that there is now an investigation into two specific articles in the New York Times and the Washington Post should be cause for concern for James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrats, the NY Times, and the WaPo.
Yes, this is about politics.
So, if the memos were not held in Director James Comey’s official FBI office, the next logical question is where were they?
Well, when Special Agents went to James Comey’s house, he still kept them hidden and never informed the agents.

It’s about the politics of the Deep State coming back to whack James Comey with a reality check of karma.
