More Comey Fall-Out

A lot of this from Instapundit, or his cobs.

Some of this is duplicative, but I still want to highlight the big take-aways.

Jonathan Turley: Yes, It's Possible Comey Committed a Crime with His Leaks.

The admission of leaking the memos is problematic given the overall controversy involving leakers undermining the Administration. Indeed, it creates a curious scene of a former director leaking material against the President after the President repeatedly asked him to crack down on leakers.

Besides being subject to Nondisclosure Agreements, Comey falls under federal laws governing the disclosure of classified and nonclassified information. Assuming that the memos were not classified (though it seems odd that it would not be classified even on the confidential level), there is 18 U.S.C. § 641 which makes it a crime to steal, sell, or convey "any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof."

There are also ethical and departmental rules against the use of material to damage a former represented person or individual or firm related to prior representation. Lawyers generally ask for clients or employers to release information, particularly when it may be detrimental to the firm or the client or someone associated with your prior representation.

By the way, waking up in the middle of the night (as described by Comey) is not generally the best time to decide to leak damaging memos against a sitting president. There are times when coffee and a full night's sleep (and even conferral with counsel) is recommended. Leaking damaging memos is one of those times. Moreover, if Comey was sure of his right to release the memo, why use a law professor to avoid fingerprints?

I find Comey's admission to be deeply troubling from a professional and ethical standpoint. Would Director Comey have approved such a rule for FBI agents? Thus, an agent can prepare a memo during office hours on an FBI computer about a meeting related to his service . . . but leak that memo to the media. The Justice Department has long defined what constitutes government documents broadly. It is not clear if Comey had the documents reviewed for classification at the confidential level or confirmed that they would be treated as entirely private property. What is clear is that he did not clear the release of the memos with anyone in the government.

If you felt the need to hide your actions, your actions are probably not as upstanding as you might later claim under oath.

Let me add this: Comey seems to be setting up a legal defense for his leaking by claiming that Trump made "defamatory" tweets about him by saying the FBI was "in disarray" and that Comey had lost the trust of the American public.

A lawyer pal of mine says those statements are clearly "opinion" by black-letter libel law, and asks, rhetorically, how can these three things be true simultaneously:

1. Comey is truthful

2. Comey is a learned lawyer

3. Comey claims that statements which are clearly opinion characterizations, which cannot be proven true or false (that is, they are not claims of fact, and thus not libel), are "defamatory."

If Comey claimed they were defamatory, how can he also be both truthful and any kind of decent lawyer?

One could also ask how Comey has re-imagined the law, as he did to give Hillary a free pass, to conjure up a "I can leak if I feel I've been defamed" defense.

Some people are asking about John McCain's mental acumen after his rambling, confusing line of questioning. McCain himself claims that maybe he was tired and stayed up too late last night watching a "ball game."

Yeah, my grandpapa does that too.

Chris Matthews: The "collusion" narrative "came apart" in today's testimony.

Jim Geraghty: Comey's Press Whisperers, who called it "farcical" that Comey could possibly tell Trump "thrice" that he was not personally under investigation, turn out to have been more #FakeNews Narrative Weavers. Because Comey himself admits he did tell Trump that -- exactly "thrice."

And on that point: See the last post for Comey's statement that the NYTimes story claiming "repeated contacts" between Trump staff and Russia, based on leaks by "former and current administration sources," was mostly false.

Why should we continue believing anonymous "former and current administration officials" who constantly pump out #FakeNews? At what point is the media officially culpable in printing up falsehoods from sources proven to be liars?

Not directly related, but Robert Traczinsky reports the media is now gratuitously outing people who aid the special forces just because they don't like Trump.

This morning, The New York Times brought us another breathtaking expose of classified national security information that is really important for the public to know because…um, well, because they just kind of felt like it.

The story is about a contractor for an international shipping company who was captured and held hostage by rebels in Yemen before being released last year. Without the man’s permission or cooperation, The New York Times gives details of his capture and imprisonment, his name, his age, his exact job description with the shipping company, and the location where his wife and children lived at the time (none of which I will repeat here).


Some of this might certainly be of interest to bad actors in the Middle East. But why would any of it be of interest to the American public? Ah, because, "while helping coordinate aid for Unicef and the Red Cross [he] also had a second, secret role: He was shipping materials for elite military commandos under a clandestine contract his employer had with the Pentagon."

Last week the New York Times outed the new CIA chief for Iran; this week, they're outing the personal details of a patriot who maybe -- maybe -- helped get provisions to the special forces.

Special prosecutor, guys. It's not hard.

These people are acting as if Trump is not their president. That's fine for citizens, but not for federal officials with classified clearances. The law is firm on the point that Trump is their president, and their are prison cells where they can ponder this question if it still troubles them.

Sandy Burglar outright stole a bunch of material from the National Archives with the express intent of altering the historical record regarding the Clinton administration in which he had worked.

This was regarded with such widespread shock and horror inside the D.C. Beltway that he then had to endure... a *temporary* suspension of his security clearance.

If I were to find myself in Comey's position, the last thing I would be doing is shooting my mouth off, under oath, in a US Senate hearing. Looking for fame much?

Prosecute Comey for illegally leaking priveliged conversations with Trump. He's pretty well guaranteed to offer to roll on Hillary - he values the sanctity of his boypussy a lot more than Jim McDougal. No way he does a stretch for Felonia Von Pantsuit - she and Bill don't have any directorships left to offer or the stroke to get him pardoned.

46 My favorite part of all this is that for a good 60 days before the conclusion of the (original) Hag investigation, the stream ofstories in the media were that "Jim Comey" is one hardass, by the book, paragon of truth. Justice is his middle name. He will get to the bottom of everything and be the final virtuous word on the matter. Do you remember that? Or did you forget?

That's when I knew for certain that she would skate and that Comey was a bought-and-paid-for crook.

52 "Some people are asking about John McCain's mental acumen after his rambling, confusing line of questioning."

Director Comey, I have to say this whole regrettable situation reminds me of the time I caught the ferry to Shelbyville. Needed a new heel for m'shoe. So I decided to go to Morgantown, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. 'Give me five bees for a quarter,' you'd say. Now where was I again? Oh! Yeah. The important thing is that I had an onion on my belt. I didn't have any white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones.

NYT says 5/16 story is the one where they state a memo existed -- but Trump's attorney said the NYT reported on excepts of the memo prior to the tweet -- and in that 5/11 story it clearly did, as Comey testified the 'loyalty' bs was in the memo

I read a book a while ago, can't remember the title of it that talked about the dichotomy of people who are really bad, yet do really good things at the same time. You know adultrous minister who is kind to his flock, serial killer who helps his neighbors, etc.

Basically, these people focus on these good things they do to convince themselves that they're Decent People.

It's a trick their mind plays on them to cope with the fact that they're horrible people.

If Comey is doing this, I'd bet he's done some really bad things we have no idea about. Treason type things. Jail things. Maybe even execution things.

You just gave me an honest-to-god actual BRILLIANT idea:

Sell, at a willing restaurant, a literal "Nothingburger," that is exactly like a hamburger-on-a-bun-with-all-the-trimmings -- but lacking the actual burger itself.

Basically, a vegetarian sandwich, created in a burger-style.

I bet it would be popular with the tofu crowd, could be sold for a decently low price, and would get TONS of free publicity and press.

147 The only good reason for a lawyer to write a file memo is to cover his ass when he can't entirely trust a client. They're not meant to see the light of day, unless necessary defensively.

If you look at Jimmy Drama's timeline, he had no need to use his file memo defensively. In fact today he admitted to leaking it for his personal objective of triggering the involvement of a special counsel (why Comey admitted that today, I don't understand).

So you can infer that Comey's creating the file memo was always done with the intent that he might use it offensively. Which means it was always self-serving, and you can't rely on it.

169 >>>>>The only good reason for a lawyer to write a file memo is to cover his
ass when he can't entirely trust a client. They're not meant to see
the light of day, unless necessary defensively.



If you look at Jimmy Drama's timeline, he had no need to use his
file memo defensively. In fact today he admitted to leaking it for his
personal objective of triggering the involvement of a special counsel
(why Comey admitted that today, I don't understand).



So you can infer that Comey's creating the file memo was always done
with the intent that he might use it offensively. Which means it was
always self-serving, and you can't rely on it.

.comey tried to intimidate Trump in their first meeting and it backfired, hence the leaks and drama since that time. Remember he is the one who went to FISA with that fake golden shower report.

It would be a loss of 17 seats for Tories, and with that their majority.

Majority is 326 seats.

However, Sein Fein will win 4-6 seats, and they won't sit, so majority falls to 224 or 223, which would mean that Tories are 10-9 seats shot.

The Speaker runs and an independent, so add one to Tories for 315.

If exit polls are right, Tories will need N. Ireland Unionists, assuming that the Unionists hold all their seats and are willing to form a coalition.

Exit Poll in 2015 said Tories would get 316.

Exit Poll was spot on in 2010.

Posted by: musical jolly chimp at June 08, 2017 06:09 PM (WTSFk)

Maybe I'm misremembering, but I think Trump fired Comey shortly after Comey testified that he had not been pressured to end the Russia investigation and that he had seen no evidence that Trump was involved with Russians. I think that caused Trump to believe (and would any normal person) that no one could credibly accuse him of obstruction/etc. so the time was right.

247 Imagine being so panicked that you're desperately floating the name of Biden over 3 1/2 years before the next election.

They should be working overtime on the approaching midterms, but I think they're fucked big time there because of this hysterical rolling meltdown that shows no sign of stopping and other factors like the House redistricting stuff strongly suggests the GOPe will easily hold and keep the house until at least 2020. The Dems could've prevented this with the last census but they had to push through Obamacare and...well they lost the House in a massive route and that gave GOP the keys to the kingdom. Senate isn't looking too good either. They have to win a ton of seats just to keep the status quo, and there are seats in Rust Belt states Trump won.

Of course events. Trump could really overreach. Who knows.

Comey proved himself to be a craven, sniveling, and sneaky bastard whose only desire is serving James Comey.

320 So a ten-month-long fraud draws to a close today. The Deep State pumped details of non-existent collusion between the Trump campaign and Vlad Putin to their propaganda organs, which approvingly spewed them far and wide. Senators and congressmen and intelligence officials and FBI senior officers knew the whole thing was a lie and charade and kept pushing it to make the public think Trump was a Russian dupe and therefore illegitimate.

The fired FBI director testified he didn't want to let the public know everything his agents and the IC planted in the media was false. On the other hand, he personally leaked information to the media to make himself look better. The fired FBI director probably cut a deal with his friend, mentor, predecessor and the Special Prosecutor to own up to it, too.

Serial felon Hillary Clinton continues to move freely, and Barack Hussein Obama, who turned America into a police state, still hovers above much criticism.

The coup failed but a presidency was hobbled.

Somehow this leaks to press and President Trump...who knew, in advance (I think) that Comey leaks like an incontinent army of Depends.
