Kirsters Baish| Throughout the past year or so, former FBI Director James Comey has made numerous appearances in front of congressional committees. The reasoning? To talk about a whole slew of problems, and during almost every single appearance Comey made some very contradictory as well as questionable statements. These were all done while he was under oath. Some of these statements have actually been proven beyond a doubt to be false.
Following these findings, an attorney named Ty Clevenger came forward to file a grievance against Comey with the New York Bar Association. The Washington Times reported that Comey used to serve as a United States attorney here and is still in possession of a license to practice law.
The biggest issue that Clevenger’s grievance delved into was the fact that James Comey actually testified during a hearing in September of 2016 saying that he had not predetermined the outcome of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s personal and private email server before his big announcement that there would be no criminal charges filed against the failed presidential candidate in July of 2016, just before the 2016 Presidential Election.
Since then, this assertion has been proven to be 100 percent false following the information that Comey had worked up draft statements that exonerated Hillary Clinton of the charges many months before even interviewing her and over a dozen other people that were involved in the scandal.
There was an extremely important discovery made by the Senate Judiciary Committee when they looked deeper into the way Comey handled the Clinton investigation. There was a discrepancy in the handling of the investigation and the subsequent termination by President Trump. In August of 2017 it was taken into account that a letter was sent by committee chair Senator Chuck Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray. The letter was asking for confirmation, which was edited heavily, but eventually produced.
Clevenger’s grievance letter to the bar’s Department Disciplinary Committee read, “Insofar as Mr. Comey gave materially false testimony to Congress, it appears that he violated Rules 1.0(w), 3.3(a)(1), and 8.4 of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct.”
The letter also looked to make new on grievances that had been filed before against former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. These grievances had to do with the potential pressure and interference that she pushed on Comey during the investigation. They also had to do with the possible destroying of evidence in this case, including laptops owned by Clinton’s associates.
That’s not all, however. There was another grievance filed by Clevenger with the Maryland state bar and he also got a Circuit Court judge to order that the association to open a whole new investigation into three of Clinton’s associates. David Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson were all accused of having deleted emails and destroyed their own personal laptops which were said to have contained important information about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
We’re all left wondering what will come next for Comey. If Comey really does end up being disbarred by the state of New York this could be huge. If things go the way they should, Comey will be disbarred and the rest of the swamp will eventually be drained one by one. It’s time that these Washington con artists be held accountable for their actions. They allowed Hillary Clinton to get away with breaking laws, and it’s time that they all be punished.
