If I read that correctly this letter also notes that they are also powerless to hold any employee, former or present, to disciplinary actions.

Guess that’s up to DOJ? If so ^^^ another example as to why no one in DC or Fed bureaucracy is ever held to account or better, fired.

*Former* employees are beyond the reach of disciplinary actions, but can still be prosecuted. Current employees can be disciplined or prosecuted.

The fact that the review is even taking place at all is a virtual guarantee that some past or former FBI personnel will be called out. I believe Comey’s @ss is on the line here, as well.

I'll take your word for it, that second half of paragraph two was about as sideways written as I could imagine. Sounds like a pre-empt cover our asses to me.

And yes, when I read that I likely did conflate "discipline" with "prosecute". Though I was thinking about the bureaucratic morass that is, not whether they could face charges of one kind or another.

Wonder if the Homey has booked his next flight to the tall trees yet.

RE: Womp Womp
That is just incredibly weird. Never heard of anything like that happening before.

My hunch is that Sullivan wants to unload some candid/blunt political opinions, but is leery to have them go out over his personal signature since he is supposedly “impartial” (which is bullsh¡t, of course, but for now everyone is supposed to officially play along). So he he has hired a lawyer to say these things for him.

Sullivan’s problem (one of them, anyway) is that the Appellate judges can deduce that strategy just as well as anyone else. They may — or may not — permit an attorney to enter the case on a judge’s behalf. We shall see. But even if they do, it won’t change the end-game.

from the lay perspective, all I see is the purest version of incompetence and 'cya' relative to bias...

But the betting is that the American people can't, and the MSM won't. So he gets a free shot to get a bunch of opinion out into the political flow

Who really cares about his opinion? He has to know this won’t look good in any shape matter or form. Flynn will still be off the hook. The taxpayers will still foot the bill for a huge settlement and this idiot judge will still have called him a traitor.
What this tells me is the length to which the sycophants will go to try and cover for Barry. Why? Is it just the race thing?
