Sarah Huckabee Sanders: James Comey Wrote the Document He Leaked on an FBI Computer, and Therefore Broke the Law About Leaking Official FBI Documents

Hit 'em.

The White House on Wednesday laid out its most detailed case yet for why the Department of Justice should consider prosecuting former FBI director James Comey, calling it a clear violation of federal law to leak FBI memos to the press like Comey allegedly did.

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, pointed to Comey's acknowledgement during a June congressional hearing that he authorized the leaking of a memo about his conversations with the president to The New York Times.

"The memos that Comey leaked were created on a FBI computer while he was the director," Sanders said during Wednesday’s briefing. "He claims they were private property. They clearly follow the protocol of an official FBI document."

Sanders added, "Leaking FBI memos on a sensitive case, regardless of classification, violates federal laws including the Privacy Act, standard FBI employee agreement and non-disclosure agreement all personnel must sign. I think that's pretty clean and clear that that would be a violation.”

Apparently she hasn't heard of the Special Double Standard that Smart Set Conservatives have so heartily embraced, whereas we are forced to live with the punishments of The Rules that liberals make up, but we're also supposed to say "We're better than that" when it comes to applying the rules to liberals.

It's worked out monstrously well for us so far. So let's just keep preening, repeating Obama's catchphrase "That's not who we are" as we while away the years in political reeducation camps.
