Former FBI Director James Comey is in serious legal trouble if the General Patreaus case has any bearing – a case Comey tried and sought a conviction for.
According to a 2016 article in the Washington Post, in early 2014 top federal law enforcement officials gathered together to discuss the criminal charges they were contemplating against David Petraeus, the hero wartime general and former CIA director whose public career was derailed about 15 months earlier over illegal actions he had purportedly taken.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and FBI Director James B. Comey listened as prosecutors did a mock run-through of the government’s case, a preview of how they would present their evidence to Petraeus’s lawyers in order, they hoped, to force a guilty plea.
The presentation included felony charges: lying to the FBI and violating a section of the Espionage Act. A conviction on either carried potentially years in prison.
The Post continued –
As part of the agreement, Petraeus admitted that he improperly removed and retained highly sensitive information in eight personal notebooks that he gave to Broadwell. The Justice Department said the information, if disclosed, could have caused “exceptionally grave damage.”
Another far left media organization, CNN, noted that Petraeus’s mistress, Paula Broadwell, used the information provided to her in her writing of “All In, The Education of General David Patraeus.”
Comey was certainly all in for pressing charges against Petraeus, and he did and as a result Petraeus’s career was over. If similar laws are used against Comey, he is facing time and a criminal record as well.
Jay Sekulow and Sean Hannity discussed Comey’s crimes on Hannity –
In 2012 it was reported that Patraeus’s affair with Broadwell was captured using location data from Gmail. The affair then led to the eventual charges against Patreaus.
Comey in his testimony on Thursday in front of the Senate noted that he wanted to get a special counsel to look into the Trump – Russia fake news story and so he leaked his personal notes to the New York Times. A few days later a special counsel was created to look into the Russia – Trump bogus story.
Now that we know that Comey is more than happy to use confidential government information and leak it to the press (as we noted, at least 9 ‘leaks’ are now linked to Comey) and Comey is also cunning enough to create bogus cases as a method of attacking those he does not like. The Patraeus case is an example.
Comey also pushed for the politically motivated attack against President Bush and his Vice President Dick Chaney that eventually led to the conviction of Scootter Libby. Comey knows how to push bogus cases against individuals hoping to find dirt. This is precisely why he pushed for the Trump investigation.
On the other hand, if your name is Clinton then Comey was more than willing to look the other way. Former FBI Director James Comey was involved in at least four different Clinton scandals and in all cases he let them off! Comey and his family at the same time benefitted from Clinton related matters.
This is why Obama hired Comey!
This is why Trump fired Comey!
This is why Comey should be put in jail!
