If you thought the saga of former FBI Director James Comey was finally over, think again. when over a year of constructing waves in a job that usually doesn’t generate headlines, Comey is returning under fire yet again — now when news broke that he could have predetermined the Clinton email investigation before hearing all the proof.

Until now, Comey has been ready to escape most of his self-inflicted wounds without too several consequences. whereas he did lose his job as FBI director, he has yet to return under investigation himself, or face any potential criminal consequences.

Perhaps even weirder, his dismissal at the hands of Donald Trump could have created him a martyr of the leftist cause, setting him up for future successes.

Of course, not most are to be} glad that Comey seems to be getting away with solely minor bruises. In fact, one activist lawyer has plans to hit Comey wherever it may end up hurting the foremost.

From the Washington Times:

A crusading lawyer filed a bar grievance this week accusing former FBI Director James Comey of lying to Congress and destroying potential evidence in the Clinton email scandal, in a process that could end up costing him his law license.

Ty Clevenger filed the grievance in New York, where Mr. Comey was a former U.S. attorney and is licensed to practice law.

Mr. Clevenger said Mr. Comey’s testimony to Congress that he did not predetermine the outcome of the FBI’s probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is belied by revelations this week that he in fact started drafting an exoneration months before even speaking with Mrs. Clinton.

“Insofar as Mr. Comey gave materially false testimony to Congress, it appears that he violated Rules 1.0(w), 3.3(a)(1), and 8.4 of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct,” Mr. Clevenger wrote.

In addition to Comey, Clevenger is also taking action against former Attorney General Loretta Lynch:

[Clevenger] also asked to renew grievances in New York against former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, saying Mr. Comey’s claim that she tried to pressure him to downplay the Clinton probe should subject her to scrutiny.

While Trump’s dismissal of Comey drew sharp criticism, proof continues to mount that the president made the right move. Beacause the head of the FBI, Comey was answerable for ensuring our nation’s high investigative agency maintains the trust of the american folks. However, when over a year of blunders and lies, America’s trust within the FBI began to wane below Comey’s leadership.

With news continued to shed a negative light on Comey’s conduct, it ought to be a relief to several Americans he no longer holds a position of power within the government. Even higher, he might not even hold his ability to practice law for for much longer, either.
