More Comey crimes

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/05/16/gregg-jarrett-comeys-revenge-is-gun-without-powder.html

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.

Actually, the D's are starting to show signs of life. They smell blood and they are actually in the mood to kill for a change.

I do worry that 46 will be net/net worse than the orange grifter would ever be. What's saving us from catastrophe is Trump's sheer incompetence.

I would have no problem with Comey going to jail.

Hillary committed multiple and severe crimes including treason. She should be arrested, given a fair trial, convicted, and executed.

Her supporters should have their citizenship stripped and be deported.

Except those who were prevented from voting:

I always had to present an ID when voting in Poland. How come people find it so hard to obtain an ID?

I think is a combination of:

- long time downplaying of the importance of ID and a ideological adversity to a national ID has lead to many people not having hard identification links.

- racist policies to prevent minorities to acquire proof of full citizenship.

- a broken national civilian administration that lacks ways of acquiring an ID for people without hard references.

Lotti nailed it.

The idiotic idea of "State's Rights" turns it into 50 separate mechanisms, and Republicans are not patriotic Americans who believe in democracy.

Voter suppression is as old as the Republic. Look up the 3/5 Compromise if you're interested.

On the plus side, there are major efforts underway to get the homeless and other poor people their official id's.

ID should not be required for voting. One alternative method is for an official to cross off the voter's name and residential address from a pre-printed list when the voter votes, then afterwards reconcile all the printed lists from all the polling places to identify any double voting. A nonzero number will probably be found but it will be too small to affect the result so deal with it in an administrative manner eg with a fine.
