    Former AG Issues Massive Comey Announcement… Now Jail Time on the Table

    Former AG Issues Massive Comey Announcement… Now Jail Time on the Table


    Former FBI Director James Comey may have just been hoisted by his own petard.

    It looks increasingly likely that the now-fired director tried to use internal memos of meetings and conversations with Donald Trump to undermine the president, but those very memos are now making Comey look like the guilty one.

    That’s certainly the view of former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey. He served in that respected position during the final years of the George W. Bush era, and knows a thing or two about the legality of classified information.

    During a Friday appearance on Laura Ingraham’s program, the former attorney general pointed out that by leaking memos during his time in office, Comey may have done something highly illegal: Break the rules regarding classified documents.

    “I think we ought to put to rest something one of your guests said in the last segment about how well the memos weren’t marked classified at the time,” Mukasey told Ingraham.

    “They were classified as soon as he wrote them,” the legal expert explained. In simple terms, it didn’t matter whether or not Comey’s memos were marked as secret; they were classified as such automatically.

    Mukasey used an example of his own time as attorney general to illustrate the point.

    “I had an experience when I started as AG of taking notes at a meeting at a top secret procedure. And when I got up to leave the meeting my then chief of staff leaned over and wrote in big block letters at the top TS/SCI meaning ‘top secret, secured compartmentalized information,'” he recalled.

    “In other words, those weren’t my notes, those were the government’s notes,” he clarified. “And those weren’t Mr. Comey’s memos, those were the government’s memos.”

    On December 11, 2014, Mukasey publicly stated on CNN that he believed waterboarding could not be called torture.
    He took the AG spot after Gonzales got his ass run for his torture files.

    Who even remembers this guy. Why anyone would even ask for his opinion is a mystery.

    And no one else in the entire government realized this until Mukasey spoke up yesterday?

    Mukasey is absolutely correct. They weren't Comey's personal property.

    Noting the dirty hands of the person at the center of this and at which the buck stops, isn't a deflection.

    This is just political posturing. Comey isn't going to jail. Hillary Clinton isn't going to jail. Trump probably won't be going to jail. Manfort, Cohen and Don Jr. might be going to jail.
