    He may have messed up here, his notes breakdown to meeting minutes.

    I know that we are not authorized to release meeting minutes until the government gives the okay.

    Before you leave government service you sign a non disclosure agreement.

      They were not meeting minutes-they were personal notes and not official documents.

      Did you watch the hearing?
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

        This is the most telling comment of all from the hearing:

The memo made not be a "government document" but the content of the document would certainly stand as government property.
          Really?

          Please demonstrate how personal notes can be considered government property. They were not taken at a meeting, they were not classified, and they were akin to a diary.

            If you actually watched the hearing, that's exactly what they were-personal documents.

              Then, they amount to personal anecdote and are really little better than his verbal testimony. That is, they hold no more weight than what he says. They aren't official documents or legally binding in any way.

                Nope, sorry. Go back to the original articles published when they were leaked.

                  Lots of attempted deflection and excuses flying around here. Funny as hell. Please continue.

                    What I got from it was Loretta Lynch hindered the investigation of the witch and stifled it. Much like Fast and Furious. Seems like the dems are so dirty that they figure everyone else is...

                      Like I said, he may have messed up. Every time we have a meeting that involves work, we have to document it in our weekly reports. The lead gov person decides what can officially go out and what needs to stay within house. Requirements/regulations could be different between the DOD and the rest of the government.....

                      I have only had a chance to watch short clips of the hearing. We've been playing Semper Gumby getting the Decision Tool Kits out. This week 2 battalions at CLNC are getting them. 2 weeks from now it happens at CPCA.....after that, every two weeks we do repeat missions until October.

                        Trump fired him, what would you expect Comey to say?

                        To expect someone to be totally honest and unbiased about someone they have a grudge against is asking the impossible.

                            The most telling comment is when he said Lorreta Lynch told him to use the same language as the Democra campaign instead of investigation in Clinton email scandal. I wonder if Comey ran to his car and wrote that down immediately? Hmm?

                                He was not afraid that later on she would lie about it, fears that he had about President Trump, fears that have been demonstrated weekly by the President.
