Comey's offenses exceed those of Mike Milken, Leona Helmsley, and Martha Stewart, all of whom were put in prison on false charges in order to raise the name recognization of ambitious publicity-seeking prosecutors, one of whom was Comey himself. Comey framed Martha Stewart.

Rudy Giuliani framed Milken in order to become New York City Mayor. Helmsley was framed on the basis of a false statement by an accountant solicited by the Justice (sic) Department in exchange for dropping prosecution of the accountant for his own misdeeds.

Mueller presided over the FBI's 9/11 investigation and deep-sixed all the real evidence in order to protect the false official story.

So, what did the Justice (sic) Department IG suggest for Comey? The Justice Department refused to prosecute. Justice is far less important to the department than protecting its own. The Justice Department is itself engaging in misconduct by refusing to prosecute a person that the Justice Department knows beyond all doubt committed crimes. Did the Justice Department decide that Comey's crimes can be forgiven because they were committed for good cause -- getting rid of President Trump?

Former US Attorneys and Assistant US Attorneys are on record predicting that there would be indictments of those who orchestrated Russia-gate in a conspiracy of sedition to overthrow the elected President of the United States. I would have liked to have believed it, but I never did. The United States does not have a Justice system. In the place of justice the US has a weapon in the hands of the state. It is not a weapon that the state often uses against its own functionaries.

Don't forget. The Justice Department and FBI covered up for Hillary. She had broken laws governing official State Department email and used a private server to hide her wheeling and dealing. Judicial Watch is attempting to open up the cover-up. A federal court has given Judicial Watch power to depose Hillary Clinton and Cheryl Mills and to interrogate others. I suspect the judge will be overturned by a politically chosen Appeals Court, and that will be the end of the matter.

I am unable to recall examples of the US government or its officials being held accountable and do not remember a single incident other than President Reagan's prosecution of the Iran-Contra neoconservatives, who were pardoned by President George H.W. Bush.

Now that Comey has been protected, we have to expect that his co-conspirators in the plot to overthrow the President of the United States will also be protected from prosecution. It will be interesting to count all the crimes that will not be punished and add up all the prison years that won't be served. When you think about the large percentage of innocent people in prison and on death row and about the mothers of young children who are imprisoned for drug possession, it makes you sick that Comey who tried to overthrow the elected President of the United States is permitted to walk.

All future presidents will have learned from Trump's fate that their real job is to foment enough American enemies to keep the military/security complex's budget expanding. The United States will continue on its course toward war with its homemade adversaries.
