‘Clearly violated POLICY’: Matt Wolking dismantles Comey with IG report screenshots in damning thread

In case you wanted the details of the IG report spelled out so you can see just how unethical and vile James Comey’s behavior was, Matt Wolking was good enough to put together a thread with highlights taken directly from said report and HOO-boy, Comey has a whole lot of ‘splainin’ to do.
Granted, Comey thinks this report cleared him and demanded an apology (yeah, we know, he sucks) but maybe if he reads Wolking’s thread he’ll figure out this report hardly exonerated him.
DOJ IG: it's "particularly concerning that Comey did not tell anyone from the FBI that he had retained copies of the Memos in his personal safe at home, even when his [COS], the FBI's [ADD], & 3 SSAs came to Comey’s house on May 12, 2017, to inventory & remove all FBI property."

These are not the actions of an honest man.

And then had his friend leak them.

Improperly. Guess they could say that.
Yet again, rogue FBI Director James Comey was found to believe the rules just didn't apply to him.

DOJ IG: "However, Comey’s own, personal conception of what was necessary was not an appropriate basis for ignoring the policies and agreements governing the use of FBI records"

And from his response, he still doesn’t think the rules apply to him.
Comey's actions were "in clear violation of [FBI policy and his] Employment Agreement. As a result, Comey not only disclosed sensitive law enforcement info to his personal counsel but also a small amount of info...the FBI subsequently determined was classified"

Wow.
The DOJ IG concludes that Comey withheld key information from the FBI. (Perhaps so he could dramatically reveal it during his testimony to Congress?)

At the same time, Comey was less than forthright with Congress. (page 59)

This is insane.
DOJ IG report: "even when [FBI] employees believe that
their most strongly-held personal convictions might be served by an unauthorized disclosure, the FBI depends on them not to disclose sensitive information. Former Director @Comey failed to live up to this responsibility."

DOJ IG concludes that James Comey's habit of "acting unilaterally" and violating FBI policies is contrary to "the rule of law."

Comey ignored the "lawful options available to him" and once again chose to violate established norms and procedures.

In other words, it was personal for Comey.
This DOJ IG report is the second report exposing Comey as someone who believed he was above the law, and was justified in breaking the law "if I love this country."

This is a truly dangerous mentality for an FBI director to have.

Crazy stuff.

And to think, this is real life.

  1. What complete silliness.

    If anyone started prosecuting Washington figures for leaking information, they would have to prosecute every single member of the government and all the heads of agencies.

    And American newspapers, including columnists, would have to focus on sports or fashion.

    And how absolutely clownish of Trump to even think a former FBI Director would be prosecuted for doing such a thing.

    It literally is government by children, children with a lot of attitude, children with too much money, and not enough worthwhile to do
