The Inspector General report on James Comey detailed the former FBI director’s misconduct at the agency, revealing he violated policy and set a “dangerous example” for FBI employees in his attempt to “achieve a personally desired outcome.”
While Comey misrepresented the report’s findings, and actually asked for an apology, even CNN called it “very damning.”
“The report itself is still very damning for the former FBI director," reports political correspondent Sara Murray. "It goes on to say that James Comey violated FBI policies in the way he handled, retained, and disseminated these memos."
She continued: “It says that Comey set a "dangerous example" for other members of the FBI, and it points out that he even had these conversations with President Trump about how important it is to keep investigatory details secret, and to not share information with the press and then essentially says he was a hypocrite for turning around and doing the same thing himself. It also includes a couple of select quotes from interviews they did with Comey’s advisers where Comey's advisers are telling the IG they were stunned, they were shocked, it was disappointment to see that this is how Comey had acted."
Perhaps Comey should read the whole report before claiming to be the victim.
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.— James Comey (@Comey) August 29, 2019
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.— James Comey (@Comey) August 29, 2019
