Judicial Watch Sues FBI

Comment: The FBI has been tainted by the likes of a pathetic self-serving narcissist, James Comey. Remember how we were told of his ‘integrity,’ a stalwart protecting our liberties? This might have been the beginning of the ‘fake’ news cycle. He has proven himself unworthy of any respect for having betrayed his office and the American people. He also proved himself weak for falling under the corrupt heel of former AG Loretta Lynch. My opinion – a weak man in all respects….WFM

Judicial Watch sues Justice Department over Comey memo

The conservative watchdog group said its latest suit is in response to not hearing back about a FOIA request it sent the Justice Department on May 16 when one of the leaked memos was cited in a New York Times story.

“That we have to sue in federal court to get a document that was read to a reporter at The New York Times is a scandal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “This Comey memo should be released forthwith and, frankly, the president can and should order its immediate release.”

The announcement comes just as Buzzfeed simultaneously reported the FBI had refused to release to the media the memos Comey penned about his meetings with Trump.

At least one of the memos Comey mentioned during a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8 is unclassified, the report said. However, the news outlet was informed the memos are part of a “pending or prospective law enforcement proceeding” and therefore could not be shared.

Releasing all of the documents could “reasonably interfere with enforcement proceedings,” the agency added.

Comey testified earlier this month that he leaked one of the memos to his longtime friend, Daniel Richman, a professor at Columbia Law School. Comey told the intelligence panel that he wrote down details about his conversations with Trump in order to have a reference point if the administration were ever to disagree about a conversation the two had in the past.

The New York Times and CNN have both filed lawsuits under the Freedom of Information Act for the memos.

Judicial Watch has issued six FOIA requests regarding the “surveillance, unmasking and illegal leaking targeting President Trump and his associates during the FBI’s investigation of potential Russian involvement.”
