New report details Comey plan to ambush Trump with Moscow sex allegation

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The new IG report is devastating for Comey. His leak of other materials from his memos — sensitive law enforcement material from an ongoing investigation — violated Justice Department and FBI policies, as well as Comey's own FBI employment agreement, the inspector general wrote. More broadly, Comey set a "dangerous example" for all FBI employees. If other bureau officials acted similarly, the report said, "the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly." So Comey did much more than just the "Hoover-esque" gambit of January 2017. The full story of his actions, even in this small part of the Trump-Russia affair, will cast a long shadow over his reputation.
