    I've read the whole memos. Large sections of them are clearly marked "Unclassified." That's what he disclosed.

    I'm aware of that too. It's a virtual certainty the IG will find no criminal wrongdoing, because classified information wasn't disclosed.

    Comey is an arrogant, self-righteous peacock, but he is also whip smart, and recognized as such by basically every credible critic out there.

    You'd have to be an idiot to execute a high-profile leak of classified information to your friend, for your friend to disseminate to the media citing you, and believe it wouldn't catch up with you.

    His memos are largely unclassified, and that's what he leaked --- his thoughts on his private meetings with the president on the overall nature of his job and political matters, not state secrets.

    The government has no authority to silence employees it fired from talking shit about their boss.

    .
    You should call the IG and tell him to shut down his criminal investigation into Comey cuz you obviously have more information than he does.

    The IG doesn't conduct criminal investigations.

    If one is investigating the leaking of classified material, what kind of investigation would you call that?

    The IG's job is to determine if the department's policies or other professional standards were broken, not if a crime was committed.

    The moment he finds evidence of a crime, he's supposed to refer it to a criminal investigator, most probably a U.S. attorney.

    Comey most likely broke department policies, except wait, he leaked the memos after being fired, so that's pretty irrelevant.

    You are clueless.


    In the United States, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) is a generic term for the oversight division of a federal or state agency aimed at preventing inefficient or illegal operations within their parent agency. Such offices are attached to many federal executive departments, independent federal agencies, as well as state and local governments. Each office includes an Inspector General (or I.G.) and employees charged with identifying, auditing, and investigating fraud, waste, abuse, embezzlement and mismanagement of any kind within the executive department.
    The offices employ special agents (criminal investigators, often armed) and auditors.

    They have no ability to start a criminal prosecution on their own. As I said, the moment they find a crime, what happens as a consequence of that crime is out of their hands. Further:

    For a case that has been declined for potential criminal prosecution by DOJ, or did not require referral to DOJ, the employee may receive a written advisement to such effect and the employee must then fully cooperate with OIG. This effectively grants immunity against criminal prosecution based on the employee’s statements concerning the matter(s) covered by the advisement, unless the statements are found to be untruthful.
    The OIG's main authority applies to employees, who have to comply with OIG if they want to keep their jobs. Doesn't exactly apply to Comey...
