LEGAL EXPERT: There Is Probable Cause Comey Committed Criminal Espionage – Punishable by 10 Years in Prison

The James Comey storm, brewing menacingly on the horizon for months, slammed into the White House just after James Comey released his book!

President Trump on Friday blasted James Comey as a “LIAR & LEAKER” who “should be prosecuted” after the former FBI director’s book portrayed Trump as a power-hungry man unfit for the presidency.

It became obvious that Comey will literally do and say anything to keep attention on him and his transparent narcissistic ways. He is a pathological liar. He can’t keep his lies straight and tells one lie to cover another. He’s a SHAME and DISGRACE to OUR country.

A legal expert last night on Twitter talked about the legal implications former FBI Director and “Crooked Cardinal” James Comey is in. Comey’s leaks are highly likely to place Comey in prison [where he belongs] for many years.

Robert Barnes from Barnes Law tweeted the following set of tweets last night about the legal consequences that Comey could face!

Next Barnes notes –

Contrary to what you may hear, a person can be convicted of CRIMINAL ESPIONAGE even if they do not leak classified material & even if they only remove, but do not share, national security information. Criminal Espionage laws were written before we had a classification system.

— Robert Barnes (@Barnes_Law)

His 3rd tweet on the subject –

3/ Criminal Espionage only requires proof that a person entrusted w/ “national defense related” information remove that information from its proper place or disclose that information to an unauthorized person in either an intentional act or because of their “gross negligence.”

— Robert Barnes (@Barnes_Law)

4th tweet –

4/ The courts have defined “national defense related” information very broadly in the seminal Supreme Court case of Gorin v. United States, effectively deferring to the judgment of the jury as to what constitutes national defense related information.

5th tweet –

5/ Some courts limited the Criminal Espionage statute to information which is “potentially dangerous” to disclose to national security and “closely held” information. That same court also said the information did not have to ever be classified for it to be a crime to disclose it.

6th tweet –

6/ Here is the key: In order for @Comey to ever classify #ComeyMemos as either “confidential” or “secret,” he admitted the memos were government proprietary information, related to national security, & the disclosure of which was “reasonably expected” to hurt national security.

7th tweet –

7/ Now add in: Classified Information NDA @Comey signed to be FBI Director, his sophisticated longtime use of classified information, his admission that information did not have to be marked classified in the Hillary press conference, and his record prosecuting whistleblowers.

8th and final tweet –

8/ Adds up to one thing: there is probable cause that James @Comey committed CRIMINAL ESPIONAGE when he removed the #ComeyMemos from FBI exclusive control & custody after his firing (the first crime) & then gave them to an unauthorized person (the 2nd crime). #MultipleFelonies

It looks like James Comey committed criminal espionage when he removed the emails he prepared and then gave them to an unauthorized friend.
