U.S. Code: James B. Comey knowingly violated federal laws as F.B.I. director and as a private citizen
“Comey’s own testimony to Congress provided evidence
of crimes he committed before and after his firing.”
— Veteran Law Enforcement Analyst
As the nation’s top-ranking law enforcement officer, former FBI Director James Comey is held to the highest standards of compliance with the United States Code. How could he not be given his statutory obligation to enforce federal law nationwide?
Nevertheless, while discharging his official duties, Director Comey chose to embark on an unparalleled crime wave the likes of which has never been seen before during prime time. What follows are only the more obvious crimes that he committed; certainly, there were many more which were perpetrated under the cover of his high office.
Misprision of felony
Both his documented professional conduct and public statements have clearly demonstrated Comey’s violation of 18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of Felony. As follows:
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.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 684; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(G), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)
Not only did Director Comey have irrefutable proof of Hillary Clinton’s transgressions of various federal statutes, it appears that he abetted her criminal activity. This makes his felonious crimes against “The People” much more serious.
There is perhaps no more graphic example in U.S. history of a senior law enforcement officer publicly ignoring and deliberately covering up a crime spree committed by a cabinet-level appointee than FBI Director Comey’s. That Comey had access to considerably more evidence of criminal activity makes his willful neglect all the indictable. His own behavior easily rises to the level of obstruction of justice and official misconduct.
Again, the U.S. Code is very clear in regard to “Misprision of felony”.
Then there is the matter of mishandling property and records of the United States Government. Because Director Comey purposefully disseminated classified information in the form of privileged conversations with the POTUS, he was in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 641 – Public money, property or records. Because he created those official records in his office at the F.B.I., he willfully mishandled government property. As follows:
Whoever embezzles, steals, purloins, or knowingly converts to his use or the use of another, or without authority, sells, conveys or disposes of any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof, or any property made or being made under contract for the United States or any department or agency thereof; or
Whoever receives, conceals, or retains the same with intent to convert it to his use or gain, knowing it to have been embezzled, stolen, purloined or converted—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; but if the value of such property in the aggregate, combining amounts from all the counts for which the defendant is convicted in a single case, does not exceed the sum of $1,000, he shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
The word “value” means face, par, or market value, or cost price, either wholesale or retail, whichever is greater.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 725; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(H), (L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147; Pub. L. 104–294, title VI, § 606(a), Oct. 11, 1996, 110 Stat. 3511; Pub. L. 108–275, § 4, July 15, 2004, 118 Stat. 833.)
According to Comey’s own testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, he intentionally leaked classified information to his personal friend at Columbia Law School. His own admission serves as legal evidence of conveying governmental records without proper authority. It is now quite apparent that he committed this crime in retaliation for being ignominiously terminated.
While the crime of perjury is often difficult to prove, because of the extremely privileged position that Comey had as Director of the F.B.I., he knew virtually everything anyone in government could know about Emailgate and the Clinton Foundation crime wave. As a matter of fact, the FBI crime files are full of hard evidence which point to a highly organized international crime syndicate run by the Clinton Foundation.
Therefore, Comey’s many responses to Congress while he was FBI director serve as indisputable proof of perjury. Comey’s answers actually go well beyond perjury and clearly prove his complicity in covering up and even abetting a criminal enterprise. However, his blatant violations of 18 U.S. Code § 1621 – Perjury generally while answering to Congress were particularly distressing as they served to profoundly destroy the rule of law in America. As follows:
(1) having taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the United States authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare, depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration, deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true; or
(2) in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury as permitted under section 1746 of title 28, United States Code, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true;
is guilty of perjury and shall, except as otherwise expressly provided by law, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This section is applicable whether the statement or subscription is made within or without the United States.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 773; Pub. L. 88–619, § 1, Oct. 3, 1964, 78 Stat. 995; Pub. L. 94–550, § 2, Oct. 18, 1976, 90 Stat. 2534; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(I), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)
There are actually several instances where Comey has committed perjury over the past year. A close reading and comparative analysis of his various public testimonies reveal outright contradictions and numerous prevarications. Any experienced prosecutor would have a field day with so many documented instances of perjury committed during live broadcasts before Congress.
Once again, the U.S. Code is quite clear in regard to Perjury.
This legal examination only scratches the surface of what appears to be a multi-decade criminal conspiracy to deceive and defraud the American people by James B. Comey. For a much more detailed treatment of the James B. Comey criminal investigation, please see the following definitive exposé.
For those looking to understand the hidden back story as to what president Trump has really done concerning Comey’s delinquency and insubordination, the link below lays it all bare.
As the previous investigator so aptly stated, “Happy Hunting, President Trump!” Draining the swamp surely begins right inside the Beltway; after all, Washington, D.C. was said to have been built on swampland.
