When you hear the name James Comey, a lot of thoughts and feelings pop into your head. You instantly think of him as the tower of jello that caved into Hillary’s desperate attempt to become president, and how he exonerated all of her law-breaking.
You also think of him as the angry dismissed employee who threatened to “get back” at Trump with memos that would supposedly hurt our president. Well, some memos have in fact been released, but the person hurt is none other than James Comey himself.
You see, after being found out for leaking memos that contained classified information to the media, Comey is now in very hot water. It is quite clear that he will have to pay for his crimes, and as a start, a call has been made to revoke Comey’s membership from the New York state bar association.
From The Political Insider:
James Comey received his law degree from the University of Chicago in 1985, and while the former FBI head hasn’t practiced law in years, his bar association membership is being challenged anyway.
The cause? Comey allegedly leaking memos detailing his interactions with President Donald Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley has accused Comey of leaking classified information to the press, and President Trump’s lawyers allege that Comey leaked classified information to the press for months before being fired.
According to The Blaze,
Attorney Ty Clevenger wrote the New York lawyers’ disciplinary committee on Friday, saying that if Comey leaked classified information, it should boost the case against him, Sen. Charles Grassley earlier this week revealed that Comey allegedly wrote seven memos about his interactions with Trump. The government believes at least four of the memos may contain classified information. Additionally, Comey is accused of leaking at least four memos to a friend who is a law professor.
Clevenger maintains that Comey’s actions go against New York bar rules that prohibit attorneys from “illegal conduct that adversely reflects on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.”
Clevenger previously complained to the NY Bar Association in October that Comey had lied to Congress and destroyed potential evidence. The complaint came after it hit the news that Comey had drafted his letter exonerating Hillary Clinton months before the FBI even interviewed her, and also touched up language detailing her wrongdoings to make them seem less dramatic.
In his latest complaint, Clevenger wrote that “If Mr. Comey deliberately leaked the documents, his breach of duty was analogous to willful breach of client confidentiality, and that reflects adversely on his ‘honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.’”
Of course, this is just a start into what justice the American public is seeking out of the horrible crimes James Comey has committed. But stripping him of his law license is a great way to continue to remind everyone that this guy needs to be held accountable for every single thing he’s done to hurt Americans.
