Comey Leaked While FBI Director

Comey Leaked While FBI Director
Controversy
16

James Comey may have misled senators on May 3, when he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he had never been an anonymous source in news reports related to the Russia investigation.

By that time, he had already leaked several private conversations he had with President Trump to his friend Benjamin Wittes,  editor-in-chief of the blog Lawfare and former editorial writer for the Washington Post.

Wittes wrote in a piece on May 18, only nine days after Comey was fired, that the former FBI director had shared those conversations “over the previous few months.” He wrote:

Comey never told me the details of the dinner meeting; I don’t think I even knew that there had been a meeting over dinner until I learned it from the Times story. But he did tell me in general terms that early on, Trump had ‘asked for loyalty’ and that Comey had promised him only honesty. He also told me that Trump was perceptibly uncomfortable with this answer.

Wittes also wrote that he had lunch with Comey on March 27, and that they discussed a phone call that Trump had made to him earlier in the day.

Wittes denied those conversations were leaks but were “just conversations between friends, the contents of which one friend is now disclosing.”

However, a leak is the release of unauthorized information, according to a definition by George Washington University professor and legal scholar Jonathan Turley. Incidentally, there is no condition that the information may be published or distributed via physical memo.

And Wittes is arguably a member of the news media. In January, Wittes published a piece on Comey in Lawfare, and he writes and publishes pieces regularly.

It would not have been unreasonable for Comey to think Wittes could publish a piece on their conversations in the future — which is exactly what happened.

    comey has to be prosecuted

    • The Watson

      Do you remember the general who was prosecuted for about the same thing?

  • vladilyich

    Is it a “leak” or is he a whistleblower (protected by law)?

  • Comey leaked while Director of the FBI? Really? What was he supposed to do, hold it?

    That could have ruined his kidney. And eventually it would trickle out anyway no matter how hard he tried.

    Kidding aside, NAIL him, he’s a snake and a liar.

    Does everyone remember when James Comey was appointed to Head the FBI?

    The man belonged in “A Pedestal” and was considered at the time, Saint. James Comey by Liberals, Socialists, Progressives and Republicans alike – Much like Special Prosecutor Muller, who is now surrounded/lawyered up with a Liberal Wall of Leftist Attorneys loyal to Criminal Hillary. – When appointed, Saint Comey – as AG Loretta Lynch, both exuded honesty, fairness, transparency, decency, professionalism, adherence to the Rule of Law, bla, bla, bla…

    Yet, after forcing the Appointment of a Special Prosecutor on President Trump, Saint Comey was “outed from the closet” as a Common Leaker and Obstructionist of President Trump’s Agenda, holding hands with the other mischaracterized, Saint. Loretta Lynch – who also facing Obstructions of Justice investigation / investigation vs. matter – i.e. the same AG who met and followed the orders given her by Bill “Testosterone” Clinton, The Proven Rapist, regarding the Criminal Hillary’s Email Criminal Activities, then been handled by the FBI… How can America be so blind!!!

    MAY GOD OPEN OUR EYES AND SENSES TO ID THE CRIMINAL THUGS AROUND US.

    Comey’s record for all his years of service speaks for itself, whether some like that fact or not. He has served well and honestly for decades. Trump, on the other hand, lies on a daily basis and has for all the decades I’ve followed his actions. And he’ll never change. He just had to go and lie about tapes regarding conversations with Comey, too. How typical. His modus operandi. Fire someone because investigations are closing in and the person isn’t doing what you’d like him to do? The job WAS being done correctly. After thr firing, Trump chose to make up stories about it, then change the story several times, then lie about it more. Then say in a TV interview a whole bee story about the firing. Good grief! After that, bluff by talking about tapes you might have. What was that for? Should a president EVER act like that? Absolutely not.

    Comey did not “leak” anything, The notes he took, the memos he wrote, all remained with the FBI. What he told other FBI personnel about his conversations with Trump and his concerns about them were part of his job to do. He’s well aware of who gets to know what, and why,’at each level of clearance. None of the meetings Comey had or the conversations he had with Trump were classified at all; therefore, there was no “leaking.” And once Trump tweeted about firing Comey and that he’d better hope there were no tapes, that was when Comey COULD have his friend contact the media about things. He was not working for the government at all by then, and could respond regarding the allegations Trimp had made about him. Agdin, Trump brings these things on himself.

    It is interesting that Trump used the same bluff here that he had used with an author of a book about him that he was suing some time back. That didn’t turn out well for him either. He told the dithorbhe had taped their interviews, The court asked to hear those tapes and told him to bring them in. Lo and behold, there were no tapes. And reading his testimony from that trial is ludicrous. On anf on he went in his testimony q(under oath, too!) saying not only did he not have any but that he really didn’t recall saying he had. He “thought” he might have “mentioned” something about recording but that he really couldn’t have said he did record anything because he just wasn’t set up to do that with any of the intetviews and conversations with the author.

    Maybe that type of “dealing” works in his business world, but it doesn’t work in court or in government or with the American people who he has sworn to SERVE. The investigations have just begun. No one knows all the truth yet because the process is in the initial stages. I cannot believe that there is anyone in this nation that does not want to know the truth, whatever it is, That is what is being sought. No one should br angry or in a hurry or “taking sides. There is only one side in regards to truth. No one yet knows where it’s all leading to. That’s the whole purpose of investigating. It is never a waste of time or resources to find and be clear about the truth,

    However Russia was involved and with whom, if anyone, it was involved, that’s what needs to be known. Russia is not our friend or ally. Read the history of it as well as a biography or two about Putin. But don’t believe his words. He has one goal on his mind. It is getting as much of the world as he can and having power, control, and money. His whole nation is under his thumb. Nothing goes on in that country that he does not know about. It is nothing like ours. Read up on China and some other nations that would like to acquire more and more of the world and strive to go that by going into areas and sowing fear and chaos and anger. It’s our job to keep our democracy intact and to not get involved in fighting amongst ourselves. Enemies just love that. It makes their dreams come true to see any weakness in a nation.
