A scathing report released Thursday by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General found former FBI Director James Comey violated bureau policies and his employment agreement with his handling of official memos.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz declined to make a recommendation as to whether to charge the former FBI chief. But he said Comey broke FBI policies by seeking to share unauthorized information about ongoing investigations with a friend — who then gave the information to The New York Times two months after Comey was removed from the FBI by Trump.

“We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement,” the report states. It noted that “much of the content of the Memos was directly tied to FBI investigative activities.”

  1. “We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement,” the report states. It noted that “much of the content of the Memos was directly tied to FBI investigative activities.”

    Comey himself noted on Twitter that the inspector general found no evidence that Comey or his lawyers had ever shared any classified information with the news media.

    “I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me, but a quick message with a “sorry we lied about you” would be nice,” he wrote.

    He also added: “And to all those who’ve spent two years talking about me “going to jail” or being a “liar and a leaker”_ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long, including the president.”

    Comey choses to ignore the part of the report that says he, as the Director of the FBI, blatantly violated FBI poilicy, and leaked information to the press about ongoing investigations, and chooses instead to play victim, for being accused of being a leaker and a liar, and of leaking classified information. He pretty much says he is OWED AN APOLOGY because his open violations of the public trust, were a little overstated. Tsk… tsk…

    But the Media and the Democrats DON’T owe the President and the nation an apology at all, for repeatedly and insistently falsely accusing the President of the United States of collusion with the Russians, and chasing him down for over 2 years for it, because after all… “He wasn’t completely exonerated” of “Obstuction of Justice”

    This double standard has become the accepted norm in the public discourse. No one even questions it.
