Now James Comey, FBI sued for obstruction of justice, by Bob Unruh.
A former contractor for several federal agencies and his attorney, who both sued former FBI Director James Comey claiming he obstructed justice by burying an investigation into the mass surveillance of Americans, are asking a federal court for a protection order preventing the destruction of evidence in the case.
The plaintiffs are Dennis Montgomery — a whistleblower who worked as a contractor for the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency and the director of national intelligence — and his lawyer, Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch.
They have filed in U.S. District Court in Washington a motion for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction.
They are asking the court to prevent the defendants, including Comey, the FBI and other federal officials mostly under the Obama administration, from continuing “illegally and unconstitutionally spying on and surveilling millions of Americans, including plaintiffs, without probable cause or a warrant.”
