William Barr was seeing red over this decision to jail James Comey

William Barr took over as Attorney General setting his sights on taking down Barack Obama’s Deep State.

One of the biggest targets was former FBI Director James Comey.

And William Barr was seeing red over this decision to jail James Comey.

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his long-awaited report about James Comey leaking memos to a friend to start a special counsel investigation against President Trump.

Horowitz’s report painted a damning picture of Comey, accusing him of mishandling classified information, failing to follow FBI protocol, and setting a bad example for future agents when he leaked memos of his private conversations to law professor Daniel Richman.

NBC News reports:

According an Office of the Inspector General report released Thursday, Comey violated DOJ and FBI policies, as well as the FBI’s employment agreement, by keeping copies of four of his memos in a personal safe and asking a law professor friend to make one memo public after Trump fired him in May 2017.

“The responsibility to protect sensitive law enforcement information falls in large part to the employees of the FBI who have access to it through their daily duties,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote in his report.

“Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility,” the report said. “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.”

But even though Horowitz referred Comey for criminal prosecution, career officials at the Department of Justice protected Comey by not following through on prosecution.

That tied Attorney General Barr’s hands and left him furious.

But Comey will not be the last chance to hold Deep State officials accountable for trying to overthrow Donald Trump.

Attorney General Barr is not yet done with his own investigation and the DOJ is still debating charging disgraced former FBI Director Andrew McCabe with lying to investigators about press leaks during the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

    Barr can’t indict or prosecute anyone, that’s true. However John Durham sure can.

  2. Steven Butcher says:

    Why do these insane mass shooters that have poppped up lately, pick innocent people. Do they not watch the news.

  3. Stuart L. Meyer says:

    Unsubscribe me. Your headlines are invariably misleading and often say the opposite of what is contained in the articles. Reading them is a waste of time.

  4. William J Vital says:

    I think the problem is the people from Obummer’s “Deep State” not allowing the AG to put Comey in prison where he belongs. The same thing will happen with the rest of the “Clinton Klan.”

  5. J says:

    How in blue blazes do you answer that question when you ask if James Comey should be in jail? You have put as choices, Donald Trump, or Joe Biden. I SAY YES LOCK HIM UP IN JAIL FOR LIFE.

    I think what they were trying to get across was how many Republicans and how many Democrats would vote yes. Not sure…but an idea?

  7. Martha says:

    I wouldn’t hold my breath for this to be done. Barr has already passed up two times to do this. I don’t think Barr is going to do doodly-squat to any of the Demos involved in this scandal. I have lost all faith in him as being a true Conservative. I’m afraid Trump has made the mistake of picking another “Rhino”.

  8. File says:

    Yes Comey should be jailed. He does not support our country. He is just plain evil.

  9. Frances DiPentino says:

    I TOTALLY AGREE! WE WANT JUSTICE FOR EACH & EVERY POLITICIAN NOW!! People breaking laws in our country are catch & release put out there by useless OBAMA! They might have done this so if time comes they were put in the slammer they would soon be released themselves. It is all about them!! I am so pleased with President Trump and want his team as tough and hard working as well!! He gets his job done so all should since we pay them to do just that!!

    I’m pretty sure that proofreading didn’t occur. It’s also possible that the html coding isn’t correct. Regardless, I’m certain that the incorrect options weren’t deliberate.

  11. JJ says:

    Barr is claiming that as Attorney general… he could not prosecute James Comey? Blames others in the DOJ??


  12. JoAnn says:

    Thank You! My vote…YES…Absolutely YES. Many of this clan should go down…Comey as good as the next to be the 1st of many!

  13. Mark McKinney says:

    Do any of you truly believe there is equal justice under the law? Don’t kid yourselves. The investigations, the threats of indictments only belong to We the Little People. Hillary/Bill Clinton have been crooked for years. From Arkansas to the White House to New York. Nothing was done. There will be some type of disaster to take our minds off these criminal investigations! Obama was crooked Bush’s and their CIA connection was crooked. (worse than Obama and I’m a Republican) Where is the justice for the big-time politicians? I lost ALL confidence. Everything going now is a game to make us “think” justice is being served. I puke at the thought!

    Agree YES YES YES

    Could not help but wonder the same thing. No way to answer the question. Don’t know what Trump or Biden had to do with the article. Someone must have made a big mistake.
