Kirsters Baish| There is a big issue in America with public officials abusing their power in order to avoid facing professional consequences. One attorney in Maryland is now requesting that former FBI Director James Comey’s credentials be reevaluated. The attorney, Ty Clevenger, has made these requests after this week’s memo scandal. The Washington Times reported that Clevenger has filed a formal grievance in order to ultimately disbar James Comey in New York, which is where the former FBI Director is licensed to practice law.
The evidence against Comey is piling up. It’s looking more and more like the FBI was out to exonerate failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton from the very beginning. It was all about a political bias against Donald Trump. Clevenger has claimed that former the former FBI chief was not entirely honest in front of Congress when it came to the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
The Washington Times reported:
Mr. Clevenger said Mr. Comey’s testimony to Congress that he did not predetermine the outcome of the FBI’s probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is belied by revelations this week that he in fact started drafting an exoneration months before even speaking with Mrs. Clinton.
Clevenger’s official grievance reads, “Insofar as Mr. Comey gave materially false testimony to Congress, it appears that he violated Rules 1.0(w), 3.3(a)(1), and 8.4 of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct.”
We have seen prominent public officials be disbarred in the past after it was proved that they were not honest. Remember back to when Richard Nixon lost his New York attorney’s license after the Watergate scandal. Then, there was former President Bill Clinton, who was disbarred by the state of Arkansas after committing perjury during the infamous Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Clevenger already has some success with similar cases in the past, however he may be taking a long shot against James Comey and his cronies.
The Washington Times reported, “Mr. Clevenger is also challenging the bar membership of Mrs. Clinton’s lawyers.” The article continued on to explain that Clevenger already “has won a court order in Maryland demanding the grievance committee there conduct an investigation into David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson.” All three have been alleged to have destroyed evidence in the Clinton email probe.
While this is just a small step in the name of justice, it is a move in the right direction, and that is all we can ask for.
Conservative Tribune reported:
Establishment players such as James Comey have acted with impunity for far too long. They need to learn one lesson: Nobody is above the law or his sworn duty — not even the director of the FBI. In fact, especially not the director of the FBI.
Let’s hope that Clevenger is able to prove James Comey’s guilt when it comes to his involvement in the exoneration of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
