James Comey Could Lose Bar Membership After Leaking

James Comey received his law degree from the University of Chicago in 1985, and while the former FBI head hasn’t practiced law in years, his bar association membership is being challenged anyway.

The cause? Comey allegedly leaking memos detailing his interactions with President Donald Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley has accused Comey of leaking classified information to the press, and President Trump’s lawyers allege that Comey leaked classified information to the press for months before being fired.

Now he’s going to suffer the consequences for the leaks.

According to The Blaze,

Attorney Ty Clevenger wrote the New York lawyers’ disciplinary committee on Friday, saying that if Comey leaked classified information, it should boost the case against him, Sen. Charles Grassley earlier this week revealed that Comey allegedly wrote seven memos about his interactions with Trump. The government believes at least four of the memos may contain classified information. Additionally, Comey is accused of leaking at least four memos to a friend who is a law professor.
Clevenger maintains that Comey’s actions go against New York bar rules that prohibit attorneys from “illegal conduct that adversely reflects on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.”

Clevenger previously complained to the NY Bar Association in October that Comey had lied to Congress and destroyed potential evidence. The complaint came after it hit the news that Comey had drafted his letter exonerating Hillary Clinton months before the FBI even interviewed her, and also touched up language detailing her wrongdoings to make them seem less dramatic.

In his latest complaint, Clevenger wrote that “If Mr. Comey deliberately leaked the documents, his breach of duty was analogous to willful breach of client confidentiality, and that reflects adversely on his ‘honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.’”

Just days ago, President Trump included Comey alongside Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin as people legal action should be taken against.

Share this story with others to show them that Comey is suffering the consequences of trying to take down President Trump!

  • I do hope the FBI and the CIA, (etc) become an honerable organization again. This coup just shows how important it is to "Mind the Store"... from Rats and Thieves who steal and give away all the merchandise America has invested in since her inceptionn.... How SAD.... How Disgraceful. !!!

  • killary had her law license revoked after lying during WATERGATE trial. she has never stopped since taken out . they have had people taken out for crossing them if they are about to rat on them.

  • look who was the head of our Country the idiot Obama, so what can you expect him to do? appoint someone smarter than him?

  • Bill Clinton had his law license revoked for "giving false testimony under oath" during the Paula Jones case. Why should Comey be treated different? Bath House Barry whoever the hell he really is had to surrender his law license to avoid prosecution for lying on hius bar application. What's worse a crooked cop or a crooked lawyer?

  • Mike;...So did Obama's tranny "wife"..Lost her license to practice law in Illinois because of a real estate scam...

  • This bar has no interest in anything ethical. They will protect the worst of the worst. They sided with lawyers who sued victims of scams. See "Norvergence"

  • Hunter, I do not know if you are guessing or you have facts. I will support you with this. You are one hundred percent correct. The ABA cares only for the ABA and it contains some of the crookedest people in the world. Check out Black Robes at http://wiseowl7.wixsite.com/mysite.

  • Of course something NEEDS to be done, but it won't be. Instead, they will at least hopefully go away and stay away.
