Legal expert and lawyer Robert Barnes provided some expert analysis last night on Twitter about the legal implications former FBI Director and “Crooked Cardinal” James Comey is in. Comey’s leaks are highly likely to place Comey in prison [where he belongs] for many years.

Robert Barnes from Barnes Law tweeted the following set of tweets last night about the legal jeopardy that crooked Comey put himself in –

THREAD: As explained on @foxnewsnight w/ @ShannonBream, there is probable cause @Comey committed CRIMINAL ESPIONAGE against Trump when he leaked #ComeyMemos. The law punishes espionage w/ a 10 year federal prison sentence & can be found at 18 USC 793(f). https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/793

Next Barnes notes –

Contrary to what you may hear, a person can be convicted of CRIMINAL ESPIONAGE even if they do not leak classified material & even if they only remove, but do not share, national security information. Criminal Espionage laws were written before we had a classification system.
