Default Unequal justice for James Comey

The inspector general's report found numerous and substantial rules violations by former FBI director James Comey. But don't worry.

Mr. Comey reportedly broke several rules for which he will not be prosecuted. He took home memos detailing private meetings he had with the president and then disclosed their contents to a friend who he believed would leak them to The New York Times. His motivation was to make sure a special counsel would be appointed to investigate alleged “collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The Justice Department decided not to prosecute Mr. Comey, citing a lack of evidence that he “knew and intended to violate laws on handling classified information.” As FBI director, how could he not know of these things? Of course he had to know. If you think this mirrors Mr. Comey’s explanation of why Hillary Clinton would not be held legally accountable for her mishandling of classified information, you would be right. At the time, Mr. Comey said Hillary Clinton did not “intend to break the law.”
That's right, the FBI director didn't know or didn't "intend" to break the rules. As fantastic as it seems one of the top law enforcement officials in the Federal government can break the rules with no fear of prosecution. Worse, Comey bragged to Congress his intention in leaking the memos was to get a special counsel appointed to pursue the Russian collusion witch hunt.

The inspector general noted: “By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employee, and the many thousands more former FBI employees, who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.”
Of course there are also hundreds of thousands if not millions of inmates who would claim a similar lack of intent but they won't benefit from the generous treatment afforded Comey.

An asylum seeker.
