Comey Demands an Apology From Those Who Called Him a ‘Leaker’ After DOJ Finds He Disclosed Sensitive Info

Former FBI Director James Comey left some scratching their heads after demanding an apology from those who called him a “leaker” after it was revealed that he disclosed sensitive information.

On Thursday, the inspector general for the Department of Justice (DOJ) released a report that outlined the actions taken by Comey following the 2016 election and his eventual removal from the department.

The report found that Comey had leaked handwritten notes to third parties which were eventually published by the New York Times. The report concluded that Comey had leaked this information to trigger an investigation into President Donald Trump.

The DOJ opted not to press charges against Comey, but did conclude that the former director had set a “dangerous example” for the department. (CE: Page 60-61)

“Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility. 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 […] Were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director’s example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly.”

Despite the report’s harsh words about the former director’s behavior, he still took to Twitter to run a victory lap and demand an apology from those who had called him a “liar and a leaker.”

Many were outraged with his behavior, both in the details from the report and in his online responses. Several took to Twitter to call out his confusing celebration by highlighting the behaviors found in the report.

Many top Republicans also called out Comey for the behavior outlined in the report.

President Trump also chimed in, claiming the report left the former FBI director “thoroughly disgraced.”

As for Comey, he will not be held legally responsible for any of the details outlined in the inspector general’s report, but he still remains the focus of the investigation into FISA warrant abuse.

  1. A person brave enough to reveal the truth about an incessant stonewalling outlaw like Trump should be considered a heroic whistle blower. This Comey thing is little league stuff, wait til
    Trump’s tax truth, related felonies, and possible treachery, he and Butboy Barr are so desperately
    trying to stonewall, are revealed. Dirty Donny’s time would be better spent pre-booking a suite at a Federal Pen for himself, his little crime family, and crooked associates.

  2. Getting a little cocky, eh Jimmy Boy? The report DID say you leaked info, it’s just by AG Barr’s grace that he’s determined not to prosecute (for this one). This was small potatoes compared to what’s about to come down the pike regarding your fraudulent FISA abuse. You ain’t out of the woods yet!

    There’s some inmates oiling up to claim a FBI’ DIRECTOR’S ahole virginity, and 1000 more willing to hold you down as you take it up the poo hole. Enjoy your few remaining free days, Jimmy Boy!!

    We won’t apologize as long as you agree not to cry too loudly!

  3. Screw Comey. The DoJ is the one setting a “dangerous example” by NOT prosecuting his looming butt.

    Deterrence is a real thing (more than global warmism). Disgrace just means he’s qualified to host on MSNBC or CNN.

    Why aren’t these idiots putting real teeth in any of their findings? Is it because he was “one of them”?

    1. ST, patience my friend. The legal eagles have said that Comey’s “leakage” would be harder to prosecute and get a conviction than will be proving that he testified under oath that the foundation for the FISA warrants (3 of them) was verified when there’s mucho evidence that it wasn’t. The perjury penalty has more teeth and easier to prove. I’ve got the popcorn warming….

      I’ll send you a bottle of Northern Michigan’s finest grapey bubbly if this goes as predicted. We can Skype a toast!!

  4. “I am not a leaker, even if the report and evidence show I leaked.”

    Comey is a doof and liar. Clinton did it ballsier*. “That is not my DNA on that young woman’s dress. I did not have sex with that woman.”

    *pun completely intended.
