"I'm not a lawyer but if I speed, if I was going 85 in a 55 but I didn't intend to do so I'm still getting a ticket. It says he didn't intend to give out confidential memos because it wasn't labeled confidential when he gave them out," co-host Brian Kilmeade said Wednesday, perplexed by the Department of Justice's decision.
Sources told Fox News that the DOJ decided against prosecuting Comey for leaking classified information following a referral from the department’s inspector general
Comey penned memos memorializing his interactions with President Trump in the days leading up to his firing. He then passed those documents to a friend, Columbia University Law Professor Daniel Richman, who gave them to The New York Times. Comey admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.
Co-host Juan Williams argued that it was time for critics of Comey to "get off that horse" and accept the DOJ's decision,
"Bill Barr is a political player on the Trump team and he said this wasn't even close... And yet you have people who will want to play tribal politics say 'oh yeah this is a double standard. Why isn't he being hit,'" Williams said calling for everyone to move on.
Co-host Greg Gutfeld weighed in saying that while he didn't understand the decision he wanted to move on.
"It's Bill Barr who made this decision and I don't want to be like the anti-Trumpers who live in the past. I like to think about the future," Gutfeld said. "There's a lot of wrongdoing on both sides, but on that side especially."
