Gregg Jarrett: Comey's revenge is a gun without powder

Fox News
Gregg Jarrett
May 16, 2017

James Comey was lying in wait.

His gun was cocked, he took aim and fired. But his weapon was empty.

Three months ago, the then-FBI Director met with President Trump. Following their private conversation, Comey did what he always does –he wrote a memorandum to himself memorializing the conversation. Good lawyers do that routinely.

Now, only after Comey was fired, the memo magically surfaces in an inflammatory New York Times report which alleges that Mr. Trump asked Comey to end the Michael Flynn investigation.

Those who don’t know the first thing about the law immediately began hurling words like “obstruction of justice”, “high crimes and misdemeanors” and “impeachment“. Typically, these people don’t know what they don’t know.

Here is what we do know.

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.

Obstruction requires what’s called “specific intent” to interfere with a criminal case. If Comey concluded, however, that Trump’s language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level of specific intent. Thus, no crime.

Schumer is out demanding that Trump prove his innocence. Is that how it works?

I'd be interested to read Comey's memos regarding his conversations with Obama, Lynch, Clintons, etc. if he "memorializes" all his conversations.

If the GOP had any balls, they would be asking for this.

The GOP is getting what they want IMHO They have hated Trump from day one Perhaps even more than the dems do.
The way this is playing out sure seems to support that theory.

NONE of this stuff would even be necessary if Trump would simply STFU and stop tweeting. This is a problem that he has created for himself.

The GOP legislators should do their job and tell the media if they want to watch a soap opera, they will stay home in the afternoons......otherwise, they are there to do their job.

They'd attack him NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES OR SAYS, Twitter or not!

You sure don't know the democraps or establishment GOP at all.

Still suffering from TDS.

My response was in regards to this thread alone. Everything going on with COMEY is because President Trump contradicted the White House Press statements in television interviews and his twitter statements.

I absolutely agree with you that they would attack him, regardless of what he was doing, simply because of the political positions he has taken. I left that statement you responded too open to interpretation. I should have been clearer that I just meant this topic.

I think I have done a pretty good job balancing out my personal disgust for the man against the majority of the actions he has taken as President.

I have said from day one that the Russia stuff is probably bogus.......but every action that Trump takes makes things cloudier and cloudier.

I read somewhere in a memorandum that Chuck Schumer is a child molester, he better disprove these allegations or else!

Good idea. That way, we can accuse presidents of all kinds of crap and they can clear themselves by producing tapes of their meetings. Maybe Schumer is right. Make the president prove his innocence.

Huh? Didn't Comey testify that the President never asked him to end any investigation?

Agreed, up the establishment. President Trump and the American people were stabbed in the back by the Washington elite.
