Frankly, it’s no wonder the vast majority of Americans have absolutely no faith whatsoever in Congress, in the media, or in their governing institutions. The only people who poll lower than lawmakers, reporters, and the federal government are murderous tyrants like Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin.
As multiple news outlets reported Thursday, despite the fact that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, in a long-awaited report, singled out fired FBI Director James Comey for wrongdoing in releasing classified memos to a friend — who then leaked them to the media — the Trump DoJ is refusing to prosecute him.
According to the report:
Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility. By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees— and the many thousands more former FBI employees — who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.
The report noted further that if all FBI agents behaved this way, the bureau “would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly, as Comey himself noted in his March 20, 2017 congressional testimony.”
Horowitz cited Comey for retaining — and failing to return — memos he was neither authorized to release or keep.
“In a country built on the rule of law, it is of utmost importance that all FBI employees adhere to Department and FBI policies, particularly when confronted by what appear to be extraordinary circumstances or compelling personal convictions,” the report concluded.
“Comey had several other lawful options available to him to advocate for the appointment of a Special Counsel, which he told us was his goal in making the disclosure. What was not permitted was the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive investigative information, obtained during the course of FBI employment, in order to achieve a personally desired outcome,” it adds.
“We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.”
In summary, so what? Comey clearly violated FBI policies, but if the memos were classified — and if they contained information discussed between him and the president of the United States, it was classified — why isn’t he being prosecuted for it?
As Breitbart News reported, in April 2018, the fired FBI director handed over seven memos to congressional investigators; eight of the 15 pages had to be redacted because of classified information. Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee in June 2017 that he intentionally leaked the memos to spur a special counsel probe into a bogus, manufactured narrative — ‘Russian collusion’ — which he knew to be false. But no matter; Robert Mueller was indeed appointed and spent nearly two years harassing President Trump, his family, and his administration, only to ‘officially’ conclude there was no collusion.
The answer has become painfully obvious to the vast majority of Americans: There are two legal standards in our country, now and as there was during the Obama and Bush and Clinton administrations — one for the elite Deep State to get away with, and one for the rest of us.
They can get away with whatever they want, especially as long as the actions injure, defame, or damage the ‘right’ people.
James Comey gets criticized in mean words but of course gets a pass for his unlawful actions.

Naturally, Comey took to Twitter to gloat.
DOJ IG "found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media." I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me, but a quick message with a “sorry we lied about you” would be nice.

And to all those who’ve spent two years talking about me “going to jail” or being a “liar and a leaker”—ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long, including the president.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has been in on the Spygate probe as a member of Congress from the beginning, said in a statement, “Today’s report is a disappointing reminder that the former FBI Director put partisanship and personal ambition over patriotism and his legal obligations to the American people.
“By leaking his confidential communications with the President in an attempt to save face in the wake of his firing, Mr. Comey believed he was above the rules of the DOJ,” he added.
Fellow Americans, we deserve better than this. President Trump — where are you?
