    Lol, okay, and Hillary is getting locked up, and Trump is going to prison for his involvement with Russia, and Obama is getting impeached for whatever nonsensical thing you thought he would be impeached for.

    Sure j-mac, suuuuuuuure.

    Nothing is going to happen to Comey. From the sound of things, the IG gave him a scolding and the DOJ gave him a free pass. He's part of the establishment and the establishment does not take punitive actions against itself.

    Bottom line, the primary goal of the DC establishment is to put Trump in jail for kicking in the door to their club. Violations of policy and/or law which do not directly promote the achievement of that goal are generally dismissed.

    This changes my opinion of Comey.

    Re: DOJ watchdog releases report on James Comey's leaks of Trump meeting memos

    This Comey memo investigation is a carve out of the larger IG investigation into FBI FISA abuse. This has already been referred to the DOJ for them to decide what to do about it. They have already decided to NOT pursue action against Comey for this issue.

    So...one needs to ask themselves...why?

    Here is reasonable and knowledgeable speculation about that question:

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Little more like flip flops than shoes no?

    I mean there's no shoe dropping here. Comey isn't going to be prosecuted, neither will anyone else.

    shrug...

    We know he isn't currently being prosecuted for this memo issue, but that doesn't, in any way, mean he won't be prosecuted. There are other crimes that he is implicated in, not least of which is defrauding the FISA court.

    Implicated by whom? Who's running these other investigations?
