The new report from the Justice Department inspector general proves beyond any doubt that fired FBI Director James Comey leaked sensitive law enforcement material in the Trump-Russia investigation. Doing so set a “dangerous example” for the bureau’s other employees, Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote.

Still, Comey’s supporters have claimed exoneration on one front: that Comey did not leak classified information. Some reacted angrily when President Trump tweeted that Comey had done so.

Comey and Clinton need to go to prison, but they won't. There are 2 separate justices in this country

Many unbiased investigations have disproven your comment about Comey and Clinton; even the one you just read.

"If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so." Funny how York picks and chooses what words he wants to believe and which to discredit.
