If Trump told Comey to stop investigation, did Comey commit a crime by not reporting it immediately?

    This only came out after Comey was fired.

    Trump allegedly committed a crime. Comey also did by not reporting the crime.

    Will Comey ask for immunity?

    Yes

    People always talk bad about their boss after they are fired

    Trump and Comey could be bunk buddies in the Penn.

    In short, yes. Comey is a felon. Now quick, get me a special investigator.

    Comey is a liar and a felon. He may very well be indicted after he testifies next week.

    the way i understand things Trump may have said that he HOPED that comey would go easy on 'Flynn' or drop the case against Flynn . The word Hoped or Hope makes the conversation acceptable and legal and no problem for TRUMP according to some talking head lawyers on tv . --------- If ' comey' suspected that TRUMP was asking for favors or giving him orders to stop the investigation on Flynn then 'comey' should have reported that info . Just holding the info for himself in private notes is either illegal or unethical , from what i hear !!
