DOJ Declines To Prosecute Comey, But He's Roasted By Watchdog

The Justice Department says James Comey may have violated official policy, but that it will not prosecute the former FBI Director for his handling of personal memos that he wrote about one-on-one conversations with President Trump. As you’ll recall, Comey gave portions of the memos to a friend, who then released them to the “New York Times.”

Why no prosecution? The internal report found no evidence that Comey leaked any classified information from the memos. And that’s why Comey says he thinks he’s owed an apology. “I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me,” he offers via Twitter. “But a quick message with a “sorry we lied about you” would be nice.” Comey also challenged those who have spent "two years talking about me 'going to jail' or being a 'liar and a leaker’," adding “Ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long, including the president.”

Comey shouldn’t hold his breath – in fact, Trump took to Twitter himself after the release of the watchdog report. "Never in the history of our Country has someone been more thoroughly disgraced and excoriated than James Comey in the just released Inspector General’s Report,” Trump tweeted. “He should be ashamed of himself!” Trump fired Comey in 2017.
