James Comey

During riveting Senate testimony on Thursday, fired FBI Director James Comey claimed he gave a friend his memos to leak to The NY Times. Comey identified his “friend” as a Columbia law professor. But many believe the leaker is Comey himself.

Comey dropped a bombshell on Thursday when he admitted he leaked government property to a newspaper! Comey, who is a lawyer, probably should have known that what he did was against the law.

Last night, Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera reported a source close to President Trump’s legal team said the president will “definitely” file a complaint against Comey with the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General and he will send a complaint to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Comey, who is a lawyer, probably should have known that what he did was against the law.
    ________________________________

    Seriously….Is this really against the law? Since he is now a private citizen, and these are his own private notes, how are they classified? He didn’t reveal nuclear codes, or state secrets. It seems like he basically wanted it documented that “douche bag donald” made him uncomfortable by his strange requests.

    If this is illegal, then any classified employee, including ex presidents would never be able to write books or make speaking appearances. And the ones who have, would be looking at criminal charges as well.

    I’m not too versed on the classifications, so somebody help me out.

    He pist me recently with the whole Yale thing. Yale changed the name of something due to slave ties. He quit and said they were too into being politically correct. But I hated him way before now.

  • hottlanta

    I saw that too. We don’t need him. They changed the name of a building. All of those schools made their money off the back of slaves and now it is being exposed. If they really wanted to be correct, be financially correct and show me the money. Someone had me laughing when they said his real name is Larry Jones and he was a washed up news anchor from New York.

  • hottlanta

    I am laughing at the Dump team think that the Russian investigation is over and Dump is exonerated. He said before I got fired he wasn’t under FBI investigation and if he was Comey wouldn’t tell him the truth. Dump knows that if you get close to Flynn/Manafort/Page follow the money and all roads will lead to him. The investigation is just getting started, too early for victory laps. Dump needs to show the tapes and shut it down.

  • Nakia Brown

    Trump told the Russians some “classified” info INSIDE the White House and he’s worried about Comey releasing his own notes. FOH Cheeto Mussolini

  • Diva4lyfe

    I know it was irking him not to get on Twitter during Comey interview, but he made sure he got on this morning. All in all everyone who spoke said that his papers he submitted was very well put together and couldn’t have been written any better by anyone so he came prepared. McCain got on my nerves heck for a min the way he was talking I thought he was drunk.

  • Yoni7

    I read in a book “The Spell of Leviathan. The Spell of Kinju” that he will NOT be able to be buried with his Jewish family/plot/cemetery when he dies because of a tattoo or something about he turned on his people.

    *throws chair*

    Paul Ryan saying Dump is new to this, he didn’t know he was breaking any laws asking Comey am I under investigation and leave Flynn alone. I wanna hear the juicy stuff that was spoken behind closed doors.

    That happened months ago. It took me awhile to miss Jay on the show. I guess he felt that it was time to move on in this stage of his life.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “Comey, who is a lawyer, probably should have known that what he did was against the law.”
    =================
    Not true. Fake news. He didn’t leak classified information. Those were his personal memos he had taken, which he put on record with the FBI, and simply took with him when he left (which he had a right to do).
    He broke no laws.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I was sick as a dog yesterday & missed everything!!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Wrong. He testified that he typed those notes on a classified, secure, government laptop while sitting in a government limousine outside the White House. He was on duty when he typed those notes. The notes are government property. Then he leaked those documents to a newspaper, which is also illegal. Reality Winner did the same thing he did. Yet she’s in jail.

  • Yoni7

    That “name” tho’. I bet somebody right now like “Yemoc Semaj? That’s cute as fukk. I’m about to name my baby that.” LMAO

  • JV

    As far as legality is concerned, the question is whether Comey’s memos constitute a government document, and I haven’t seen a clear answer at this point. So what he did may in fact be illegal, but I don’t believe it’s due to his memos actually being classified.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Obama prosecuted more reporters for publishing leaked documents than any other president in history. He set the precedence for Trump to do the same thing.

    ” Prosecuting journalists and their sources. The Obama administration pursued Fox News reporter James Rosen’s private emails — then misled Congress about it. CNN’s Jake Tapper — to his credit — pointed out that Obama had used the Espionage Act against leakers more than all of his predecessors combined.”

  • Yardgirl

    LMAO!!! :-))

  • Carrington

    Here’s what’s interesting about conservative selective outrage. They were pissed at Hillary Clinton and used LEAKED information to call her out consistently. In fact, the PRESIDENT, when a candidate, went on national television and ASKED a foreign country to hack top secret government emails in order to continue the narrative about, “crooked Hillary”… he went on record saying that he, “Loves Wikileaks” (a Russian propaganda machine)… and these SAME people are now pissed off at the mere mention of the word “leak”. Go figure.
    Isn’t it funny that the people who taut, “fake news” are the very ones who want you to not focus on the actual criminal acts within the white house – they want you to focus on the people who TOLD about the criminal acts within the white house. See how that “fake news” thing works for stupid people?

  • Please Stop The Madness

    His really name is Gerry. Gerald. He a daggone idiot from WAY back.

  • Yardgirl

    THIS!!!^^^

  • hottlanta

    They are his documents. Every job that I have I keep my own employee file on what goes on. If I got fired and had to use the documents to defend myself or obtain a lawyer while employed they are still MY documents. The documents were not classified he broke no laws. He called Dump bluff when he publically mentioned some tapes he might have. Dump shouldn’t start something he can’t finish.

  • hottlanta

    YASSSS someone always come through. Comey is a PRIVATE citizen and the documents were not classified. They were his documents. The press would have gotten them anyway so he said I will do it myself to cut through the red tape.

  • JV

    That’s actually a really good point, but per Trump’s usual, he has to has to try and take everything to the next level — whether he should or not. For example, him casually suggesting to then FBI-director Comey that journalists should be jailed:

    ——-
    Presidents are rarely afraid to wrangle and bully reporters, and Mr. Trump’s predecessor, President Barack Obama, was pilloried by news organizations for aggressively prosecuting leakers. But Mr. Trump’s suggestion, first reported by The New York Times, breached new territory for political reporters who already consider their profession under siege.

    “Suggesting that the government should prosecute journalists for the publication of classified information is very menacing, and I think that’s exactly what they intend,” said Martin Baron, The Washington Post’s executive editor. “It’s an act of intimidation.”

    ——–

    I agree that Obama in some ways set a bad precedent in this regard, but I’d also argue that Trump went way into left field with it as he’s wont to do.

  • nick c

    I would read the fine print your job will usually have a clause that if you wrote on their device on their time its their property and cannot be removed without your employers permission. If you are keeping employee files for your personal records that contain sensitive information and your employer finds out that could easily be grounds for termination.

  • Rayne

    Don’t that say James Comey backwards yoni?

  • wiseone

    Sounds like Sandra is coming for Comey now. I will admit I was very upset with Comey when he knocked Hillary out of the race but now he is on our side. I’m still upset but if he can help take President Jackass down I’m all for it.

  • wiseone

    What you are saying is of no help to Don the Con. He lied and Comey told the truth. Stop grasping for straws – he’s going down down down.

  • Yoni7

    YES! My whole point. LOL It’s STUPID. LOL

  • Noirluv45

    Sandra will come for anyone who speaks truthfully about her president. I think all the lies 45 has told will come to light, but his supporters will stand by him no matter what.

  • wiseone

    Remember Judge Wapner. He said ignorance of the law is not a defense. Trump is ignorant of everything.

  • Renee26

    I know a child named Semaj LMAO

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It’s all about optics and convincing their supporters who would believe that the moon was made of cheese if Trump told them.

  • wiseone

    The Republicans are taking what Comey said out of context to cover Don’s a$$. It’s a matter of credibility – Don has zero credibility – Comey is not lying – Don the Con is doing what he does best lying and tweeting nonsense.

  • Yoni7

    And the daddy, grand daddy, brother or uncle is named what? LMAO

  • hottlanta

    We still waiting on the evidence that Dump paid 5 million dollars for people to go to Hawaii to find President Obama’s birth certificate that he wasn’t born here. Remember when he got on the news and said they got a lot of information and I will be happy to show it to you when they return. I guess they are still in Hawaii. We haven’t seen it yet. Then he gonna go on Twitter and said he had some tapes of the conversation he had with Comey. Since Comey has shown his documents Dump should show the tapes voluntarily or be subpoenaed to submit them as evidence. Comey just exposed Dump as the liar he truly is on paper instead of he said, he said going back and forth. He shut it down. Dump threatened to release the tapes to the public on Twitter when he fired him.

  • Diva4lyfe

    dang and I missed his tweets

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    These Republicans are the biggest hypocrites. If Obama had done 1/10 of the stuff we’ve already seen from Trump, they’d be drawing up impeachment papers already. I can hardly wail till the 2018 midterms. I’ll be lining up early to help vote these bums out of power.

  • wiseone

    Me too – this is serious business and we definitely have to reorganize.

  • hottlanta

    I just keep track of what is going on between me and my co workers I don’t bring files home. Comey’s document is a detailed account of what went on between him and Trump. Which he has a right to do.

  • hottlanta

    Thanks. Always come through. I hit the floor when they told me that because I never heard that name before.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Mike Flynn is the key to this all. Just wait till Robert Muller gets him in checkmate, and he’s looking at years of federal prison time. Then he’s gonna sing like a canary. I’m convinced that that’s what Trump and his people are really nervous about.

  • hottlanta

    Did you see his lawyer screw up yesterday. The media read him for filth. He was trying to say the documents were released before Comey got fired.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I’m not sure which is more disturbing: that we have a dishonest, incompetent, malignant narcissist as president …or that tens of millions of Americans actually think he’s a good person who’s doing a great job.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly.

    That’s why Trump still keeps in contact with Flynn–hoping that Flynn won’t flip on them to save himself.

    Well I don’t think that is going work because as you stated Flynn is looking at spending possibly the rest of his life in prison unless Trump promises to pardon him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    His supporters only cared about filling Scalia’s vacant seat with another conservative and possibly replacing Ginsberg with a conservative and but most importantly angering liberals.

    The rest is gravy for them.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And Trump telling him to “stay strong” … in my mind that’s potentially witness-tampering:

    http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/18/trump-tells-flynn-stay-strong-report-says.html

    Trump is nervous for a reason. Mike Flynn has a story to tell, and at the right time, he’s gonna tell it.

  • wiseone

    Yeah I enjoyed that. Even if there was no collusion with Russia this man is a loose cannon and he needs to go.

    People…turn off your TV and stop watching this garbage…..what about job creation? Are previously unemployed Americans back to work now that Trump is in office? Has your life changed now that Trump is president? I bet you still have the same bills you had the whole 8 years Obama was president. This is all a smoke and mirrors act that produced NOTHING!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Sorry. Incorrect. . Just because a document is typed up on a secure government laptop doesn’t meant it’s a “Classified” document. Not even Trump’s people are claiming it’s a classified memo. Even Trump’s lawyer said yesterday it was a memo regarding a “privileged” conversation… but even he knew the document wasn’t classified.

  • Scromes1212

    Comey tried to play politics and got played. He didn’t understand the level of the politics he was playing. He should have focused on just being head of the FBI. Now he can move on. This is done smh

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    That he still has trumpettes is amazing. I don’t blame Comey for taking notes and leaking his notes. He played it well after Cheeto in charge tried it. Chump has lied from day uno.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    He’s the smoking burning fire yep

  • hottlanta

    I had one job that my notes came in pretty handy. I applied for my my unemployment and of course they denied it. They wanted to be smart and wanted a hearing to embarrass me. When that hearing came I was firing all kinds of stuff from my notes where the telephone was quiet. I wrote down stuff they had forgotten about. My notes were 14 pages long so we were on the telephone for a minute. I didn’t have to say a word because the representative was going down my notes line by line and word for word because like Comey I was very detailed. I put down who said/did what on day/time. I got so bold I told the job to put the person on the telephone on the day of the hearing. Got my money with no problem. I still have those notes to this day in case I need them again. You never know things have a way of coming outta the bushes when you least expect it to. It’s gonna be whole lot of employers who are now gonna watch what they say to their employees afraid they are taking notes.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Good for you. Comey knew what kind of clown he was dealing with as did you. I journal daily.

  • Moon Lee

    Release the tapes! #Alternativefacts #Confefe…

  • hottlanta

    I tell people all the time if there is a email you feel uncomfortable about forward it to your private email address at home. Because some of them try to be slick with those emails and leave a trail. I had one crazy azz boss trying to show her behind because I went in on Monday and told her I need to take off Wednesday. She want to go on a song and dance tirade talking about I didn’t let her know ahead of time etc, etc and had the nerve to print me half of the shyt out of the handbook relating to days off. I wrote that azz back and asked her if I get sick that day and call in I want to know what kind of emergency procedures does she have in place for someone to do my job and if I call in sick on a day that she told me I can’t take off will I be reprimanded and what kind if I am reprimanded and I want everything in writing. Got the day off with no problem. She wouldn’t even walk past my desk no more.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    See that’s what I don’t understand about people who follow Trump.

    There are no tapes. Trump just makes up $hit.

    He just lies for the sake of lying but his cult members don’t ever hold him accountable.

    How many times does someone have to lie to you before you stop believing him?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Keep dreaming.

    You have no idea what he told Congress during the closed door session.

    Your boy Trump and his henchmen before be careful what they say about Comey publicly because if Comey is a witness in Mueller’s investigation they can be charged with witness intimidation or witness tampering.

    Just FYI.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The fact that he was willing to even threaten the release of “tapes”, when apparently there are none, just shows how desperate he is to intimidated Comey and furiously cover up whatever it is he is hiding.
    Robert Muller could end up being a national hero by the time this is all over.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Do you remember how many days those clowns went on about Obama putting his feet on HIS desk in the Oval office?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “That he still has trumpettes is amazing.”
    ————–
    It is, and then at the same time, it’s not.
    Trump is just a symptom of a deeper problem. We all know there are a lot of foolish, uninformed, shallow people out there. Trump is a reflection of that portion of the electorate… which could actually be tens of millions of “regular looking” folk. Now THAT part is a little scary.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And they said that Trump and his clowns better keep their mouths off Comey because if he is a witness for Mueller’s investigation all of their trash talking could be witness intimidation.

    These people are STUPID!!

  • Messenger

    This sounds like “House of Cards” and everyone involved is the devil…

  • hottlanta

    Exactly how is Comey leaking his notes when he is a PRIVATE citizen. If he was still working at FBI then he would be guilty of a crime. He can do whatever he wants with them and folks acting as if they got a “gotcha” moment. I was watching Roland giving this white guy hell because as usual he wanted to revert back to Hilary. Roland wasn’t having it.

  • hottlanta

    Mark your calendar we got Mr. 13 Jobs himself Kushner next week to explain his back door meeting with Russia before the campaign.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    In other words… he’s unprepared, unqualified, and incompetent.

    These guys are pathetic.

  • hottlanta

    Yep. they are acting like Comey did the same thing that Ms. Reality did when they kept saying leaking. Comey SUBMITTED his own documents from his home. He was not on GOVERNMENT property when he did it. Now his jackleg attorney talking about he is gonna file charges against Comey for those documents getting to the press but didn’t tell Donald to release the tapes that he said he has. Comey did the I show you mine’s if you show me your’s routine. He called him out. Dump gotta realize these are not business people trying to kiss his azz to make a deal with him. This is one deal that he lost. If they say Dump did nothing wrong by asking him to stall the investigation, Comey did nothing wrong by releasing his OWN documents to the press.

  • Messenger

    You hit the nail on the head!

  • growingviolet

    Comey leaked his recollections of his interactions with Trump AFTER he was no longer a government employee. The data in that memo was his own personal recollections and were not classified. So Drumpf can file all the complaints he wants. Let’s hear those tapes Trump.

  • growingviolet

    Exactly. Trump is out of his league. He tried to lean on Comey and it backfired. Those mob tactics and back room deals he’s used to doing in the NY real estate world is not going to work for him.

  • growingviolet

    You mean Trump tried to play politics and got played. Comey played this just right.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Once again… more “alternative facts” from Breitbart and company. It turns out the friend in question is Daniel Richman.
    ==============
    “The Senate judiciary committee, meanwhile, sent a request to Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman for Comey’s memos. Richman confirmed Thursday that he was the friend Comey testified who had discussed the memos with the press.”

    He lost his job and what little respect he had left smh that’s not the outcome he intended.

  • hottlanta

    I saw it where Dump said he hardly knew Comey. That is like me waving at my neighbor when I see them but I never visit their home. Some names I don’t know but I wave just to make sure that as neighbors we recognize we other. He threw him a helluva Godfather kiss. Hilary tried to warn us but folks didn’t want to listen. Thanks for the tape info. He told the reporter he will release the tapes in the near future. He is an idiot to tell Dump everything he knows knowing he has a mouth like a faucet. Can’t wait until they talk to the other people he called by name that he spoke to about Dump behavior.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Thanks for that truth.

  • Faithz

    I see no lies.

  • wiseone

    Is he going to do it when he releases his taxes?

  • wiseone

    He probably erased or burned them and will say Comey stole the tapes and destroyed them.

  • wiseone

    You mean you don’t see the truth because you don’t want to.

  • wiseone

    Dump is going to lose his job too. Besides Comey is making more money now because he signed a 10 million dollar book deal and is being offered giant big deals to do speeches. It;s a win-win situation for Comey. He doesn’t have to deal with Dump anymore and his pockets are fatter.
