28. Richman told The New York Times in that same interview Comey was “navigating waters in which every move has political consequences” and that with Comey, there is “a consistent pattern of someone trying to act with independence & integrity, but within established channels.”
29. I find this strange: 2 Attorneys & BFFs since at law school to this very day, are not just "massaging the msm" but both are colluding & conspiring to break the laws (LEAKING) they took an oath to protect & defend.

But these 2 ass-clowns were doing this BEFORE Comey was fired

“I don’t think he takes glee in being contrary for its own sake,” but adding that Comey “recognizes that you can never make everybody happy.”…

“There are administration agendas, & appropriately so, that [Comey] doesn’t always adhere to,” Richman said.…
33. “&he takes his criticisms 4 very quietly-sometimes loudly-he takes his congrats 4that.
This is somebody who grew up in a variety of admns, &was able to, I think, do a remarkable job of always trying to do the right thing.

(Hillary always TRIED TO tell the truth)
34. “There are admin agendas, & appropriately so, that [Comey] doesn’t always adhere to,”

Richman said.
35. I had to give you the background of Columbia Law School Professor Daniel Richman to help you better understand who he & his lifelong friend are.
**They Are Partners In Crime.

from ever holding a Law License in Any State.
36. Comey intentionally used a “friend” on Columbia law faculty to leak govt owned files (memos) to their friends & connections in the ms media.

Comey says that he did so to force the appointment of a Special Counsel.
37. However, those memos are a legal government records and potential evidence in a criminal investigation.

But a Law Professor and his best friend and at the time, a Director of the FBI didn't know that?
38. The problem is that Comey’s description of his use of" an FBI computer" to create memoranda to file caused these memos to become government documents.
39. Comey even admitted that he "thought he raised the issue with his staff and recognized that they might be needed by the Department or Congress."…
They read like a type of field 302 form, which are core investigatory documents.
40. The admission of leaking memos is problematic given the overall controversy involving leakers undermining the Administration.

It creates a curious scene of a former director leaking material agnst the @POTUS after the President repeatedly asked him to crack down on leakers.
41. Besides being subject to Nondisclosure Agreements, Comey falls under federal laws governing the disclosure of classified & nonclassified information.
42. The Bottom Line:18 U.S.C. § 641 which makes it a CRIME to:
STEAL, SELL or CONVEY (perhaps to a Law School Professor) ANY RECORD, VOUCHER, MONEY, or THING OF VALUE of the United States or of ANY DEPARTMENT or AGENCY ( the F.B.I.?) thereof.”…
43. There are also ethical & departmental rules against the use of material to damage a former represented person or individual or firm related to prior representation.
44. The FBI website states:
"Dissemination of FBI info is made strictly in accordance w/provisions of the Privacy Act; Title 5 USC, Sc 552a; FBI policy & procedures re: discretionary release of info in acc w/PAct; &other federal orders & directives.”…
45. I'm just your average alpha-male Marine Corps "Jarhead" & like all of those I follow here on Twtr, we are smart enough to know these laws. But Comey &Richmon (FBI Fired Dir Who LACKS CANDOR-means he's can no longer be trusted due 2being a LIAR) & a Law professor Do NOT?
46. By the way, waking up in the middle of the night (as told by Comey) is not generally the best time to decide to ILLEGALLY leak CLASSIFIED GOVERNMENT OWNED PROPERTY against a sitting @POTUS .
47. There are times when coffee & a full night’s sleep (and even conferral w/counsel) is recommended.

ILLEGALLY Leaking GOVERNMENT OWNED PROPERTY is one of those times. Moreover, if Comey was sure of his right 2release memo, why use a law professor to avoid fingerprints?
48. I find Comey’s admission to be deeply troubling from a professional & ethical standpoint. Would Comey (as a Director of the FBI) have approved such a rule for his own FBI field agents?
49. Thus, an agent can prepare a memo during office hrs on an FBI computer abt a mtg related to his service -but leak that memo to the media.
The Justice Dept has long defined what constitutes govt documents broadly.
50. Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) is what every government employee knows is their Bible.

SOP requires that ALL documents be reviewed but not clear, whether Comey had LEAKED docs reviewed 4classification at the confidential level.

51. What is CRYSTAL clear is that Comey did NOT clear the release of the memos with anyone in the federal government, but instead he STOLE the property; ILLEGALLY LEAKED it someone WITHOUT a GOVERNMENT SECURITY CLEARANCE, with 1 Mission: SEEK REVENGE on a sitting @POTUS .
52. Comey’s statement of a good motivation does not negate the concern over his chosen means of a leak.

Moreover, the timing of the leak clearly benefited Comey & was NOT the cause of appointing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.!
THAT was due to a FAKE Steele Dossier.
53. It was clear at that time that a Special Counsel was likely.
More importantly, Comey clearly understd the memos wld b sought.
That leads inevitably to the question of both motivation as well as means.

54. But there's something strange: ATTORNEYS

Michael Cohen - @realDonaldTrump's attorney
Robert Mueller -Comey's Mentor & friend
Daniel Richman -Columbia Law Professor adviser & friend to Comey
Michael Avenatti -Stormy Daniels atty has deep ties to Rahm Emanuel & Joe Biden.
55. After Comey Was Fired (Rod Rosenstein Recommended He Be Fired-@POTUS Finished Him)
Comey Was Just Like Hillary... EXTREMELY PISSED OFF.

~Revenge By Any Means Is Their Mantra
56. To Take @POTUS @realDonaldTrump
~A Fake Dossier- FAILED
~A Mtg w/@POTUS & Comey's STOLEN Memos LEAK- FAILED
~Mueller's Russian Collusion Conspiracy Theory- FAILED
~Russian Hookers Pissing On @realDonaldTrump-FAILED
~"He Asked For MY Loyalty" Lie-FAILED

So, These LAWYERS..
57. These "Lawyers" Should ALL Be Disbarred (Like John Edwards; Barack & Michelle Obama; Hillary & Bill Clinton) All of them.
~They Are ALL FRIENDS in bed with each other (well, except for Stormy's atty, who is in bed with and worked for Chicago's own turd-blossom-Rahm Emmanuel)
58. Remember When Mueller Said @realDonaldTrump 's NOT A Target?
He wasn't lying. Now it is ANY and EVERYONE within the Trump circle.

Can't Get The Target?
Move to his inner circle and destroy them all.
59. In my opinion, @realDonaldTrump MUST do something to end this flanking attack by these men who have power (FROM THE PEOPLE). They are supposed to be working FOR US and for OUR INTERESTS.

It Is Beyond a Witch-Hunt.
It Is Personal.…
60. They used the unverified information in the Christopher Steele Dossier to receive that warrant to crack the first window open and enter the world of REVENGE.

~Carter Page
~General Michael Flynn
~Michael Cohen

And ANYONE else who gets in their way.
61. WE THE PEOPLE the taxpayers are FUNDING a 3 ring circus of a caravan of left-wing attys, who are over-bloated w/authority & unlimited taxpayer dollars are spilling with acts of vengeance & criminal acts bordering treason.

I Ask Mr. @POTUS End This.
We Have Your Back.
