James Comey is not too big to jail

Aug. 29, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reacting to the Justice Department OIG report on James Comey’s unauthorized disclosure of classified information:

“Edward Snowden and James Comey’s excuse for the unauthorized disclosure of classified information is that they love their country. Whereas Snowden had to flee to Russia to escape the FBI that Comey was to lead in just a few short months, Comey for his part is demanding an apology from all those who had the audacity to report exactly what he did. If there was any justice, Snowden would have a law professorship at William and Mary teaching ethics and Comey would be wearing orange. Hopefully, Attorney General William Barr will ensure that the faith of the American people in equal justice under the law will be restored by handling this matter like they would any other low-level FBI or government employee or contractor. Comey is not too big to jail.”
