If you were hoping for a better representative of President Donald Trump’s law enforcement agenda as attorney general after he fired Jeff Sessions, chances are good that so far you’ve been disappointed.
Several months into William Barr’s tenure and we still don’t have any indictments of a single “Spygate” suspect — not James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Sally Yates, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Christopher Steele, or even Hillary Clinton.
And it’s not as though none of these characters haven’t been implicated in the attempt to spy on the president’s 2016 campaign with the intent of manufacturing a “Russian collusion” charge that would get him throw out of office — a soft coup, if you will.
We’ve literally known for years now that former FBI officials Page and Strzok actively plotted against the president. We know they despised him. We know they were working on behalf of former President Obama.
We know that other officials like Yates and Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of Intelligence James Clapper were also involved on various levels. So was the intelligence community.
We know these things. But no indictments.
There was an opportunity to charge one of these characters recently — Comey — but Barr, for some reason, refused to do so. (Related: Finally! U.S. attorney in D.C. district to recommend charges against fired FBI official Andrew McCabe for his role in ‘Spygate’ scandal.)
As The Washington Times reports, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended to DoJ that Comey be charged with a crime in a criminal referral he made earlier this year.
“We are required by the [Inspector General] Act to send information that we’ve identified that could plausibly be criminal to the Department of Justice,” Horowitz said Wednesday in reference to information the fired FBI director leaked to a friend so he would pass it along to the establishment media.
The paper noted:
Mr. Comey in May 2017 asked a law professor friend to share with The New York Times a memo detailing his conversations with President Trump to pressure the Justice Department to open an investigation of the president.
In a report released last month, Mr. Horowitz wrote that the former FBI director “set a dangerous example” when he shared the memos to push the Justice Department to act.
In testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, the DoJ IG said that he was very concerned about Comey’s behavior.
“Our concern was empowering FBI directors or, frankly, any FBI employee with the authority to decide they are not going to follow established norms and procedures because, in their view, they’ve made a judgment that the individuals they are dealing with can’t be trusted,” he said.
That ‘individual,’ to Comey, was the duly elected president of the United States — Donald Trump — despite the fact that Comey worked for Obama, who regularly ignored the rule of law and the Constitution.
Asked if the fact that Comey held the highest post in the most advanced law enforcement institution in the world added to his concern, Horowitz said that yes, it did.
That’s a “monumental” admission, Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.) said regarding the IG’s criminal referral.
Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) asked Horowitz if his office would examine allegations that Comey was dishonest during his 2017 Senate testimony, adding that he believes there were “numerous” occasions when the fired FBI director’s testimony did not match what the inspector general found.
Horowitz agreed to do so.
“It is certainly appropriate for us to get a referral about a then-employee of the department and then we would assess it,” he said.
Whether Barr has chosen to pass on the criminal referral for leaking information because he has bigger charges coming against Comey is yet to be known, but couldn’t they simply be added to a charge of illegally leaking materials?
We continue to await justice from a Justice Department that doesn’t seem interested in holding Spygate conspirators accountable.
