James Woolsey has a point. There has to be a certain expectation and form in all things, but especially in politics and especially when dealing with the Command-in-chief, wouldn’t you say?

There are, in fact, a lot of sensitive material out there that while not “technically” classified is often said in private or in jest, often taken out of context. There’s a certain level of decorum when it comes to politics and no matter what James Comey violated that decorum.

“No. Well, not all leaks have to be classified,” he said. “There are a number of things that are extremely sensitive without meeting the technical requirements for classification. And I just found it stunning that [Comey] would, I think, give up the secrecy of a conversation with the president of the United States.”

“I find it amazing that he would take detailed notes of a meeting with the president and then leak them to a friend who’s at, I think, Columbia Law School, and then have them give them to the press,” Woolsey said………
