James Comey Should Have Been Fired Last Year, NY Post Column Says

Former FBI Director James Comey

Former FBI Director James Comey

There are many critics who think President Donald Trump should never have fired FBI Director James Comey.

Then there’s folks like Michael Walsh, an author, screenwriter and contributing editor at PJ Media, who thinks Comey should have been fired by President Barack Obama.

In a column in the New York Post, he writes:

Let’s cut right to the chase: James Comey should have been fired immediately following his disastrous press briefing last July, in which he candidly laid out the case against Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information and then refused to recommend charges. Overstepping his authority while radiating sanctimony, arrogating power while clumsily intervening in the election, Comey deserved to be sacked on the spot.

Everything since has been one long slow twist in the wind for Comey, a former US attorney in Manhattan, where his most notable accomplishment was sending Martha Stewart to jail.

Ignore for the moment Comey’s series of missteps resulting from the Clinton investigation and his increasingly erratic and unconvincing public fan dance as he sent the nation into electoral paroxysms over the past 10 months.

On his watch, the FBI continued its politically correct, see-no-evil attitude toward radical Islam and thus failed to prevent the atrocity in San Bernardino; it also investigated the Orlando nightclub shooter for 10 months before closing its case, allowing him to kill or wound 102 people. Meanwhile, the federal office of personnel management was hacked by the Chinese, resulting in a serious data breach. That’s failure on an unacceptable level.

 

Tenn. ATF Agent Fights Firing; Denies Allegations by Snitch

By Danny Fenster

Nine months from retirement, a Tennessee ATF agent was notified in August that the agency intended to fire him.

But the ATF agent Steve Parris, an African American,  says the recommendation to fire him is rooted in nothing more than an informant’s racism, backed by the informant’s law enforcement buddy, Vonore, Tenn. Police Department officer Mathew Watson and disgraced former Vonore Police Chief Mike Myers,  according to a report on the website of the Knoxville News Sentinel.

At issue: the informant and the police officers claim that Pariss gave the informant Andy Maltby–a convicted felon–his gun at a barbecue in March of 2008 for some target shooting, the paper reported.  ATF sided with in a follow-up probe in which Parris was accused of lying about the incident.

“By hook and by crook, they’re trying to terminate him for some unknown reason,” Parris’ attorney Hugh Ward, a former federal prosecutor, told the paper. Ward is representing Parris in his appeal of the matter.

Ward got affidavits from law enforcement offices at the picnic who said Parris wasn’t even armed, according to the paper.  The paper reported  that Ward claims in an affidavit that the informant made the allegations because he was angry at Parris for only paying him $50 for some snitch work.

“As a prosecutor, if someone had given me that case for us to prosecute, I’d say, ‘You’re kidding me,'” Ward said of ATF’s probe into Maltby.

ATF declined comment, according to the paper.

Atty Fired Under Bush Regime After Rumors of Being A Lesbian is Rehired

Things are quickly changing at the Justice Department — quicker than expected.

By Ari Shapiro

All Things Considered
WASHINGTON —  On Monday, the Justice Department undid a small part of the damage that top officials caused in a scandal of politicized hiring and firing during the Bush administration. The department rehired an attorney who was improperly removed from her job because she was rumored to be a lesbian.
NPR first broke the story of Leslie Hagen’s dismissal last April, and the Justice Department’s inspector general later corroborated the report. Now, Hagen has returned to her post at the department’s Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys.
