A lot of stories today about former FBI director James Comey, but won t headline, seems to have gotten very Donald, Trump’s own justice department found no evidence call me broke the law after 2 years of attacks from Trump doj out today, with the internal investigation into call Me and why they chastise him for violating FBI policy and how he handled some FBI memos. They admit there was no evidence that Cole me or his attorneys released. Any classified information from is my memos to the media and they declined to prosecute no evidence that Comey released classified information and no evidence. He did anything illegal. That directly contradicts years of attacks from Trump. He gave it to a friend and he gave it to a friend to leak classified information. It’S all classified it was totally classified. They should be prosecuted that he is an untruthful slimeball decided. He should have be prosecuted. Call me responding today reiterating there was no evidence. He released classified information and say he doesn’t want an apology, a quick message with a sorry we lied about. You would be nice and to all those who have spent two years talking about me going to jail or being a liar in the leaker. Ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you my info for so long, including the president. Jordan, me now is Frank figliuzzi former assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI, offering great to have you with us this evening. First, let me get your thoughts on the developments today. What did you make of the inspector General’s findings? It’S confirmed for us that, first of all, he’s not being charged by doj. He didn’t commit a crime and perhaps, more importantly, all of the people saying that Comey was a leaker Healey classified those people should be ashamed of themselves. Now, let’s not hold our breath for any apologies, but the American people need to understand it. This was thoroughly invest aided by the doj Inspector General, and they found a couple of important fighting. Comey wrote seven memos. They were members written right after he had conversations with the president. He took some of those memos home put them in a safe. None of those memos were Mark classified those that were classified were kept at FBI headquarters. He shared some of those on class memos with his attorneys, and why did he do all of that? Because the Inspector General report says Comey advised them. He know Ender trusted the president. He was being asked to commit the loyalty to the president. He understood the president was continuously lying and he saw the writing on the wall after he was fired. It became clear that Comey was right in trying to protect most important about these memos. The American people need to understand about this issue. Oh, my God, he took memos home when, when he was prepping for Senate testimony Senate hearing on this very issue, the Senate said to him. You should take these memos home to prep for your testimony. So that’s how important not really these memos were. Even after all, this came out, they said you need to take report that came out today effectively and defensively definitively undercut the president’s argument and his allies and his cronies and everyone that has been around him saying that Jim Comey leaked classified information. Does today’s Inspector General undercut that argument in fattic Lee says in the report it right up front call me: did not leak classified information. So anything to the contrary. Your hearing is alive and I think, there’s a broader issue here, which is what was the FBI director to do when he thinks the president is corrupted and obstructing in the IG actually refers to his activity as whistleblower type activity. He could have done this. He could have done that, but that would involve going to the White House or the inspector-general who is investigating, where the dag, the deputy attorney general, who had written a memo to fire him do at the time, and I think the American public needs to understand. Something tells me to contact in all of this is going to be lost on the president and his allies as they continue to spend it Frank figliuzzi. Thank you very much for joining us this evening.
