BREAKING: F.B.I. Takes Control Of Comey’s LEAKED Memos

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

According to the official Twitter feed for ABC News the notes and memos of the disgraced former head of the FBI James Comey are now in the possession of the FBI.  They are reported to have been delivered by Comey’s law professor friend at Columbia University, Daniel Richman.

Comey raised serious questions when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he was the source of leaked memos to the New York Times. During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence committee’s investigation into supposed Russian meddling, Comey revealed he himself was an anonymous leaker.

“My judgment was I needed to get [the memos] out into the public square so, I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

Many have speculated about these memos and Comey’s actions of “leaking” their contents through a friend to the media and if that actually makes Comey a “leaker” of government information.  Some have gone so far as to accuse Comey of being in violation of the U.S. Code 793 of the Espionage Act when he gave the information as a private citizen.

Ethicist and vice president of the Poynter Institute Kelly McBride states it is not a clear violation of the law because the memo was not declared confidential.  Where Comey may have an issue is under the FBI’s employment agreement. Comey may be in both civil AND criminal jeopardy IF he did not get written authorization to release his personal notes and memos to his friend and/or the media of his conversations with President Trump.  Most people agree that it is highly unlikely that he did so.

According to the most recent version of the two-page agreement, with the last revision completed under Comey himself in 2015, Comey violated multiple provisions of the agreement.

The second paragraph reads –

All information acquired by me in connection with my official duties with the FBI and all official material to which I have access remain the property of the United States of America. I will surrender upon demand by the FBI, or upon my separation from the FBI, all materials containing FBI information in my possession.

Per protocol, Comey was required to surrender the information he leaked prior to leaving the agency.

Paragraph 3 states FBI employees are prohibited from releasing “any information acquired by virtue of my official employment” to any “unauthorized recipient without prior official written authorization by the FBI.”

He and President Trump have dramatically differing accounts of the several private meetings they held before Comey was fired.  Given what many would term as a credibility issue with Comey given his association with the Clintons and multiple investigations where there was clear wrongdoing, yet the Clintons were cleared of all charges?  Many are disinclined to believe Comey’s version of events.

President Trump has consistently dismissed the Russia investigation as a “hoax” and “witch hunt.”
