Comey Faces Jail As Barr To Make Him Testify In Criminal Probe Due To Obstruction,
Now Attorney General William Barr just wiped the smirk right off James Comedy’s face and sent him an unmistakable message – hire a good lawyer.
Bill Barr said the “problem” with the IG report, which was devastating to the FBI, was James Comedy’s obstruction.
Also James Comedy’s refused to have his security clearance temporarily reinstated so he could meet with the Inspector general and get access to classified information.
Now It was a sneaky little move by the showboat and Barr is calling it out. But then he went one step further and said U.S. Attorney John Durham who is conducting a criminal investigation can force Comey and others to cooperate or charge them.
According to Report from From The Washington Examiner: “Durham is not limited to the FBI. He can talk to other agencies. He can compel people to testify,” Barr said.
“One of the problems in the IG’s investigation, I think he would agree, is that Comey refused to sign back up for his security clearance and therefore couldn’t be questioned about classified matters.
So, someone like Durham can compel testimony, he can talk to a whole range of people, private parties, foreign governments, and so forth.”
Furthermore In his report, Horowitz said Comey was one of a number of former FBI employees who “chose not to request that their security clearances be reinstated for their [inspector general] interviews” and “therefore, we were unable to provide classified information or documents to them during their interviews to develop their testimony, or to assist their recollections of relevant events.”
However The focus of Horowitz’s investigation was into allegations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse against onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Horowitz found errors and omissions were made in the process but did not establish that political bias tainted officials’ actions throughout the Russia investigation.
Comey took a victory lap on Twitter following the release of Monday’s report, saying, “So it was all lies. No treason.
No spying on the campaign. No tapping Trump’s wires. It was just good people trying to protect America.” But in Barr’s view, Comey’s decision, which limited what he could be asked, meant a full account of the FBI’s actions still had not been discovered.
Finally, Bill Barr explained his divergence with the DOJ watchdog by pointing out Horowitz, as inspector general, “starts with limited information” and “can only talk to people who are essentially there as employees” and “he’s limited to the information generally in the FBI.”
