Former FBI Director James Comey is in serious legal trouble if the General Patreaus case has any bearing – a case Comey tried and sought a conviction for.
According to a 2016 article in the Washington Post, in early 2014 top federal law enforcement officials gathered together to discuss the criminal charges they were contemplating against David Petraeus, the hero wartime general and former CIA director whose public career was derailed about 15 months earlier over illegal actions he had purportedly taken.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and FBI Director James B. Comey listened as prosecutors did a mock run-through of the government’s case, a preview of how they would present their evidence to Petraeus’s lawyers in order, they hoped, to force a guilty plea.The Post continued –
The presentation included felony charges: lying to the FBI and violating a section of the Espionage Act. A conviction on either carried potentially years in prison.
