Top FBI lawyer and Comey ally under criminal investigation
Larry Klayman recalls James Baker's role in burying proof of illegal spying
By Larry Klayman

I had a feeling! And, for better or sometimes worse, I am usually right. The lawsuit that NSA/CIA whistleblower Dennis Montgomery and I filed against former FBI Director James Comey and the intelligence agencies over allegations of illegal and unconstitutional spying against us – as well as millions of Americans including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, President Trump and his associates and family members – just got bigger and more serious.

As I go into with more depth on my weekly radio show, "Special Prosecutor With Larry Klayman," which can be found at RadioAmerica.com, Radio America's blog site, as well as FreedomWatchUSA.org, Comey's former general counsel at the agency, James A. Baker, has been revealed to have allegedly leaked classified information presumably on behalf of his boss, in violation of various criminal statutes. According to Sara Carter of Circa News (see the below visually embedded appearance on Hannity last Thursday), Baker is now under criminal investigation by the Justice Department.


But as Sara Carter also knows, since she interviewed my client Montgomery for hours a few months ago, this is not the whole of the story. And, since this was not mentioned on Hannity or in her report, let me bend your ear with yet another felonious outrage by the Comey crowd at our formerly honorable FBI, the nation's supposed premier investigative agency.

When I first met Montgomery through my client, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's chief investigator Mike Zullo, years ago, I decided that we needed to bring this major whistleblower in from the cold – after no one in Congress or elsewhere in government would take the time, much more fortitude, to listen to what he had to say. To do this, I went to the only person in Washington, D.C., during the Obama years whom I totally trusted. His name is Royce C. Lamberth, and he is the only federal judge who had the courage to hold Bill and Hillary Clinton's feet to the fire for their myriad of scandals during their White House years. While the judge always acted ethically, as I did, many in the leftist media believed that he and I were working together to "persecute" the Bonnie and Clyde of American politics.

After I left Judicial Watch to run for the U.S. Senate in Florida in 2003-2004, and later founded Freedom Watch, I took the opportunity to finally pay my respects to the judge who had done so much for the American people, and had taken a lot of heat for it with the vile crowd of Clinton loyalists who were trained to destroy anyone and anything in their march to regain control of the government. When I met with him, we reminisced about our independent but parallel exploits, and I thanked him for his integrity to do what is right, regardless of which political party is involved. I firmly believe that he is only one of a few federal judges in the nation whose rulings are not influenced by politics or his personal biases. (Years ago, he held a Republican secretary of the interior, Gale Norton, in contempt over misuse of Indian trust funds).

When I met with Montgomery, I realized that perhaps this courageous jurist could help pave the way for someone in government to listen to my client, who had come forward with perhaps the biggest scandal in American history.

Having asked Judge Lamberth how he thought it best to proceed, he recommended first that I take Montgomery to the soon-to-be Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Charles Grassley of Iowa. But after contacting him and having then met with his staff, they proved to be uniformly unhelpful, instead suggesting that I take Montgomery to the inspector general of the Defense Department. This was absurd. Why would I hand my client over to an Obama-run department, when he had the goods on illegal spying during Obama's administration, among others?

When I took this back to the judge, he then recommended that we go see former FBI Director James Comey. After all, during the years of the prior Bush administration, as then-deputy attorney general, Comey had stood up to those in the administration who thought warrantless wiretaps on American citizens, in the wake of Sept. 11, were a "peachy keen idea." To make this connection, Lamberth suggested that we go see Comey's general counsel, James Baker, whom he knew.

And so it was the judge and I and another member of my staff who soldiered over to the FBI and met with Baker, explaining to him what Montgomery had and what was at stake for the nation if his whistleblowing was not addressed. During at least two meetings in the general counsel's office, one of which had three FBI special agents in attendance, I asked to meet with the director himself. Baker came back and told us this would not be necessary, as he would supervise the Montgomery investigation at the direction of Comey, keeping Comey apprised of its progress every step of the way. In addition, Baker helped arrange for Montgomery to get immunity to produce his hard drives and testify to the FBI. As as result, my client performed his part of the bargain. But ever since then, Baker, Comey and their corrupted FBI have apparently buried the information and testimony that Montgomery provided to them.

And now it is even more apparent why! Baker and Comey were themselves involved in alleged criminality at the agency, having violated the constitutional rights of not just Trump, but also a huge number of American citizens. In effect, through no fault of Judge Lamberth, my client and I were fraudulently induced by this less than "dynamic duo" (now it appears more akin to the Penguin and Joker in the famous Batman comic series) to turn over incriminating information to the FBI.

And this underscores why Montgomery's and my case against Comey, the FBI, NSA and CIA is so important. (See FreedomWatchUSA.org.) Despite the courageous, patriotic efforts of one of the few federal judges, Royce Lamberth, who has the guts to mete out the rule of law, Comey and Baker deep-sixed evidence about what will ultimately prove to be the most dangerous exercise of unbridled government tyranny in the nation's history.

Recently, I have moved the court, under the direction of another fine federal judge, Richard J. Leon, a colleague of Lamberth's, to allow me to depose Comey and Baker, as well as former corrupt Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former equally lying Obama CIA Director John Brennan. Given the cover-up orchestrated by these less-than-stellar public servants, our court case may be the last hope for justice over the criminality of the Obama-Clinton Orwellian deep state.
