Kirsters Baish| Jim Jordan just took an epic stab at James Comey and really hit him where it hurts. The former FBI Director’s actions were so illegal that it’s almost impossible that he will avoid jail time.
If you think that the Democrats are going to protect him, you’re fooling yourself. The GOP won’t be protecting him either. It doesn’t matter how you look at it, the guy is a total liar and clearly a leaker. If Jim Jordan is right, Comey won’t be walking free for much longer.
Jordan stated, “James Comey never told Congress that he wasn’t just leaking this information through a friend to The New York Times. This friend was a special government employee [who] had access to the FBI. We presume he had full clearance, so he didn’t disclose that. The only way we learned about Daniel Richman having this special government employee status at the FBI is when we deposed Jim Rybicki, James Comey’s chief of staff, in December,” said Jordan. “That’s where the staff on the Oversight Committee learned that he, in fact, had this special status at the FBI and was, in fact, an employee. The American people are so fed up with these two standards, one standard for us regular folk and different standards if your name is Clinton, Comey, Loretta Lynch, [Lois] Lerner, this is what should concern Mr. Comey. He has been fired. [former Deputy FBI Director] Andrew McCabe has been fired for lying four times, three times under oath. Jim Baker, former chief counsel has been demoted and reassigned at the FBI. Peter Strzok, deputy head of counter intelligence. Lisa page, FBI counsel, demoted and reassigned. These are the top people at the FBI. That’s what he should be concerned about. A leak is when you take information and give it to the press.”
Anyone who leaks classified government information is liable to serve jail time. Comey has no allies in Washington to protect him now. Things aren’t looking good for him at this point.
Fox News reported:
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) joined Todd Starnes to talk about the accusations former FBI Director James Comey has made about President Trump in Comey’s new book and interview with ABC News. Representative Jordan also addressed whether he will put his name into consideration to replace Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House.
Rep. Jordan said Comey didn’t have much credibility, to begin with, before the ABC interview and he added: “I don’t think he did anything to improve that standing.” He also believes that Comey “screwed up the Clinton investigation all the way through” as well.
