The DOJ set a dangerous precedent with its decision not to prosecute fired FBI director James Comey for violating department and FBI policies identified in the I.G. Report.
The I.G. Report’s “Conclusion” specifically stated (emphasis mine), that:
Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees — and the many thousands more former FBI employees…” and went on to strongly warn that “were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director’s example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly.
The DOJ’s decision not to prosecute Comey cannot be reconciled with what the I.G. Report clearly warns against.
How can the I.G. Report say Comey’s actions were a “dangerous example for over 35,000 current FBI employees — and the many thousands more former FBI employees” and the DOJ determine that those actions are not prosecutable? Is this not a clear message from the DOJ to those 35,000-plus FBI employees that there are no legal consequences if they ever decide to do what James Comey did?
