Is Comey In Legal Trouble Now?

Former FBI Director James Comey could have committed a major mistake during his Hillary investigation, committed the very crime that she was accused of. The Daily Wire reports:

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey used a private email account hundreds of times to conduct government business — “and at least seven of those messages were deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that they declined to release them,” the New York Post reports.

Like Hillary Clinton, whom Comey decided had broken no laws when she used her own homegrown server and email to send and receive classified information, Comey said he used the Gmail account only for “incidental” purposes.

But the Justice Department said that Comey and his chief of staff “discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained by The Post.”

“The Cause of Action Institute, a conservative watchdog group, filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit for Comey’s Gmail correspondence involving his work for the bureau. The Justice Department responded that there were an eye-popping 1,200 pages of messages for Comey and his chief of staff that met the criteria.”

This major breach will leave Comey exposed to attacks from both sides of the political isle, as the Democrats have no love for him due to his supposed effect on the 2016 election, and his repudiation of Trump will place him in the sights of Republicans.
