New York court breaks rules, refuses investigation into James Comey

There is no Justice in America

  • As I have said for years if an average Joe robs a 7-11 of $50 the entire weight of the all-powerful state comes down on your ass.
  • But if you are part of the Ruling Elite pretend pillow fights between Oligarch factions are held so the mouth-breathing Sheeple think there is actually going to be "justice" served.
  • Bottom line, no one ever goes to jail.

(Washington Times)  -  The New York courts have refused to pursue an investigation against former FBI Director James B. Comey and several other major figures involved in the Clinton email scandal, seemingly breaking their own rules in the process.
Ty Clevenger, a lawyer, had filed grievances against Mr. Comey and three others saying they violated fundamental rules of lawyers’ ethics by the way they handled the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.
The New York grievance commission, in a letter dated earlier this month, rejected all of the complaints without comment.
Under the commission’s own rules, it is supposed to provide “a brief description of the basis for the determination,” so the move to dismiss the grievances without any reason was striking.
“The independent review has now taken place and I have been formally advised that the committee decided not to proceed further with your complaints,” Jorge Dopico, the chief attorney for the disciplinary committee’s first judicial department, said in the Jan. 9 letter.
“Accordingly, we cannot be of further assistance in these matters,” he concluded.
Neither the committee nor Mr. Dopico responded to requests for comment submitted by The Washington Times.
Mr. Clevenger had asked for investigations into Mr. Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, top Clinton family lawyer David E. Kendall and Beth A. Wilkinson, who served as lawyer for Mrs. Clinton’s top aides in the department.
In the case of Mr. Comey, Mr. Clevenger says he broke ethics rules by apparently leaking classified information to a professor and friend of his in order to shape the narrative surrounding his interactions with and later firing by President Trump.
“I’m disgusted but not surprised that a grievance committee would try to whitewash serious crimes by politically-powerful colleagues,” Mr. Clevenger said after receiving New York’s rejection. “I’ve seen it all over the country, in Republican and Democratic jurisdictions alike. If you are a lawyer with the right political connections, you can get away with almost anything.”
“Regardless of who they represent or how powerful they are, attorneys should not be permitted to destroy evidence, lie to Congress, or obstruct justice with impunity,” he said.
