    There is such a thing as "building a case" so that you have all the evidence to support your case instead of jumping up and screaming A-HA! and press charges right then and there. You don't arrest a drug dealer just because he says he's got the stuff. The notion that if the Director of the FBI uncovers crimes during the course of an FBI investigation, he is required to immediately report it to some other person is insane.

    I'm beginning to get the distinct smell of desperation from Bullshit Mountain.

      Too bad they don't do this more often with government scandals.

        The article don did not read:

        Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States. Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey. (18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361) He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law.

        So, if Comey believed Trump attempted to obstruct justice, did he comply with the law by reporting it to the DOJ? If not, it calls into question whether the events occurred as the Times reported it.

          28 USC 1361 is totally irrelevant here, 18 USC 4 requires the reporting of a felony and there is no precedent for applying it to suspected obstruction of justice cases, or for making a law enforcement officer report a suspected crime to prosecutors as soon as they suspect it, their job is actually to prepare a case first. They are the people who are notified. Are you retarded enough to think the FBI director is legally required to run to the DOJ to report anytime he thinks anyone may have committed a felony or face 3 years in prison? The actual relevant USC would be 18 USC 73, which coincidentally is entitled 'obstruction of justice', but that wouldn't fit the bullshit claims now would it.

            The law Nole didnt read:

            18 U.S. Code 4 - Misprision of felony

            Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.


            28 U.S. Code 1361 - Action to compel an officer of the United States to perform his duty

            The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of any action in the nature of mandamus to compel an officer or employee of the United States or any agency thereof to perform a duty owed to the plaintiff.


            The FBI is also an entity of civil authority as was Comey himself, so, filing the memo with the FBI fulfills the requirements of the law.

                    Conversely if he does find something....not that I can imagine any "something" that the true Trump believers will acknowledge....but if he does you'll support Trump's impeachment? I'll start holding my breath!

                          Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians during 2016 race

                          Six of the previously undisclosed contacts were phone calls between Russia's ambassador to the U.S. and Trump advisers

                            I see

                            The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed

                              Makes you wonder why they "forgot" those communications ever happened then, eh? Makes you wonder what Flynn thought he needed immunity for too, eh?

                                "Comarade Evelyn, you going to the inauguration today?"
                                "Nah, I'd rather stay here in the office and work on my tranny bath incident reports."
                                "Suit yourself. It gets over @ 2. Boss says don't bother coming back. Traffic is going to be a nightmare."

                                What's more, federal workers put in less time than private sector workers. As we noted in this space previously, government data show that employees in local, state and federal governments are 38% more likely to take time off work for illness or personal reasons, and miss 50% more hours than private sector workers.

                                35% said they'd consider quitting if Trump won. I say we hold them accountable, for quite possibly the first time in their apparatchik careers.
