Happy Hour News Briefs

CNN:

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump’s legal team, in the wake of damning testimony from James Comey, plans to file a complaint against the former FBI director with the Justice Department Inspector General and the Senate judiciary committee early next week, two sources with knowledge of the situation told CNN.

And the complaint would be?

The new complaint will focus on Comey’s testimony that he gave a friend the content of memos about his conversations with Trump and asked the friend to then give that information to a reporter. Comey said Friday that he gave the friend — later identified as Daniel Richman, a longtime Comey confidante and Columbia University professor — the information after Trump tweeted that he may have tapes of his conversations with the fired FBI director.

And if found in favor of the Russian Usurper, the remedy would result in?

The Justice Department, however, has limited jurisdiction over former employees. They can investigate but the remedy in the event of finding wrongdoing would be to make a note in Comey’s file should he ever seek to be employed by the Justice Department again.

Oh, NOES!

    How are Comey’s private notes to himself “memos”? Aren’t memos official messages between one person in a company or institution to another? The contents or substance aren’t classified. No?

      That is a really good point Ellis: it is not a leak if the information is unclassified (or at least that is my understanding).

        That’s my understanding, too. Comey passed along his recollection of meetings with Donnie. It’s not as if Comey gave the Russians high classified information from Israel. THAT would be a problem. Only a total asshole would do that.

    Trump is used to pushing around small contractors in court, running out the clock until they can’t afford to continue litigation. Comey, while making the mistake of being a partisan hack in favor of a party which doesn’t value loyalty or ethics, is a smart guy with a remarkable breadth and depth of experience. Trump just doesn’t know how bad the fight he has gotten into is.

    another example of a bully thinking he can make threats in an attempt to make the other person back down and that he has no idea how things actually work on this level. i could be wrong but i can hear comey saying ‘bring it on, bitch’. oh, he already did (i.e. ‘i hope there are tapes’).
