Barr’s DoJ let James Comey off the hook for leaking classified info. That’s not the end of it

(NationalSentinel) Americans hungry for justice regarding Obama-era Deep State operatives who attempted a soft coup against POTUS Donald Trump got another disappointment Wednesday when ace investigative reporter John Solomon of The Hill reported that fired FBI Director James Comey is going to skate for leaking classified memos to the media.

Specifically, Solomon reports that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose report on FBI/DoJ/Obama admin malfeasance has been pushed back to September, referred Comey to the Justice Department for prosecution over the leaked memos, but prosecutors are declining to pursue them:

Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz’s team referred Comey for possible prosecution under the classified information protection laws, but Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors working for Attorney General William Barr reportedly have decided to decline prosecution — a decision that’s likely to upset Comey’s conservative critics.

Prosecutors found the IG’s findings compelling but decided not to bring charges because they did not believe they had enough evidence of Comey’s intent to violate the law, according to multiple sources.

The concerns stem from the fact that one memo that Comey leaked to a friend specifically to be published by the media — as he admitted in congressional testimony — contained information classified at the lowest level of “confidential,” and that classification was made by the FBI after Comey had transmitted the information, the sources said.

Right. This smacks of why Comey let Hillary Clinton off the hook for her obvious criminal mishandling of classified information: ‘She didn’t intend to.’

Well, that’s not the legal standard, of course, and there are currently people in prison for doing what these two did and in the case of Clinton, far less.

So what gives?

The third para above from Solomon’s story provides some clues. If you believe what Solomon wrote makes it sound as though federal prosecutors don’t think they have a strong enough case or don’t want to risk missing on Comey with such a relatively minor infraction, you’d be right.

Solomon later clarified his reporting during an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Wednesday night:

He’s got a day of reckoning coming, but there is more coming ahead…The more important thing to watch is the ongoing investigation by Bill Barr and what we know about the FISA [application]. They are learning some very troubling information about the FISA process and everyone involved remains under significant scrutiny…

The AG is looking at the possibilities. Can I win this case in New York and if I lose this case in New York, what message does it send that a leaking FBI director got off? If there’s a better case to be made against James Comey, patience is sometimes the better part of prudence.

I think AG Barr and John Durham will be judged on the final product. When Barr, Durham and Horowitz get done, what’s the final outcome?

Hannity noted, “I suspect there are bigger issues in play that we don’t know about yet…I know there are bigger issues about to come down and I am giving him [Barr] the benefit of the doubt and you know more than I do and you seem to agree with me.”

Solomon responded: “I do agree with you. The sources are telling me to stay tuned. There’s a lot more to come down the pike on Jim Comey. He signed the first FISA agreement and that’s going to turn out to be a fraudulent or misleading document.”

In short, DoJ and Barr don’t appear to want to whiff on their first attempt to nail Comey. Also, they don’t want to waste an opportunity to get him for something much bigger.

And no doubt, that’s POTUS Trump’s feeling as well after enduring all he’s endured from these deep state conspirators.

“Americans hungry for justice” is a great opening and the truth! Trump has been right so far, lets hope he gets it right again. The “truth is a force of nature” rings good about now!

Oh yeah? We will believe it when we see it. Hannity has been hyping “Breaking News” every single show for three years now, and it all turned out to be “Hannity Fake Hype”. We hope Jason Chaffetz or Bongino replace him by year end when he will finally fall through his butt.

Limbaugh thinks they have worse stuff on him. Hope so – if not another big slap in the face.

If justice is actually done, it will be a new day in America. If it’s not, the country is done. That is how serious what Barr and Durham are doing is, I hope they realize it.

Roger 7423: “Oh yeah? We will believe it when we see it.” That’s been repeated more times in chat rooms than the Special Olympics, So I’ll suppose that you believe there’s profundity there by virtue of the fact that it is indeed YOU stating it for the 782,985th time, because you are so rip roaring FASCINATING, and even passers by are hanging onto your every word, is that about right?

Why is the DOJ not doing what many citizens experience at the hands of prosecutors and that is to have every possible charge thrown at him. It’s weak sauce to think the gubmint could not win a case against Comey when others have gone down for the same with significantly less intent and danger to the republic. Comey’s actions were designed to overthrow the president and have inarguably effected Trump’s ability to compete his agenda as promised.

Justice delayed is justice denied. The idea that it takes this long to prosecute is just not believable.
The scam continues….

“And no doubt, that’s POTUS Trump’s feeling as well after enduring all he’s endured from these deep state conspirators.” Wrong. There is plenty of doubt when Trump made the statement, “On the campaign trail, Trump dubbed his Democratic rival “crooked Hillary” and pledged to prosecute her over her use of a private email server while secretary of State. “She did some bad things, I mean she did some bad things,” Trump said. But when asked about his previous statements about appointing a special prosecutor to go after Clinton, Trump changed course. “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want… Read more »

These charges can be added to anything else they charge him with.

Nothing changes, government folks don’t have to obey the law, and their buddies would let them walk anyway. I haven’t trusted the government or politicians for years.I was hoping things would change after the election, I was wrong, things are just as bad, or worse. I’ll not vote in the next election. I’d rather see the country crash and burn now.

Law is based on facts and logic, not feelings. One cannot prove “intent”. This behavior was wilful and malicious. There was nothing “accidental” about it. Giving these traitors a pass on their criminal behavior is an insult to the American people. How stupid do they think we are?
Lawyers protect their own, that is why the Founding Fathers believed no lawyer should hold elected office as it is a conflict of interest.

We’re being played folks. Next time you get a speeding ticket or have any other trouble with the law, just tell them you did not intend to break the law. You should be in the clear then.

This is (once again) just the deep state protecting of its own. Any normal citizen would be serving prison time for espionage based on either of Hillary or Comeys crimes. Justice is joke. These people are all pure evil, Luciferians, Freemasons, etc. Time to water the fields of liberty with the blood of these tyrants. Storm their homes, drag them to the steps of the capital and hang them by the neck until dead. Death to tryrants.

Time to overthrow the deep state. Massive watch on Washington and pull some of these evil bastards out into the streets. The masses are sick of these elitist goons stealing from us and lying to us generation after generation. Ivy leagues jackasses who have run this nation for to f-ing long.

Let’s see if I have got this right?
The Justice Department will not indict me for all the unpaid traffic tickets and bar fights I got in if they think I committed a more serious crime?
Somehow, I am having problems believing that.

Like every other American, I have complete faith in my government to prosecute the right people involved in the Obama-lama-lama-ding-dang at just the right time for the very right crime. Now let’s all head out and have a great opposite day.

“…they did not believe they had enough evidence of Comey’s intent to violate the law.” Boy I watch a LOT of Cops and Live PD…and according to ALL of them intent doesn’t matter at all…but I guess the folks they nab on TV aren’t Jim Comey or Hillary or one of their minions…

Not a single one of your complainers is qualified to do any better, let alone comment with a credible opinion of a strategy of prosecution. Let it rest. Many are frustrated by what seems like an insufferable delay in results, but I believe Barr and team will deliver some serious results. remember, the best timing for all of this to be in the news is a year from now – before the 2020 elections. Until and unless there is proof the entire Russia conspiracy was a conspiracy hoax set up by Obama and Hillary, there will be too many who… Read more »
