Papadopoulos was certain the tramscript would be released yesterday. Nothing... just news of Comey skating.
Prosecuting Cardinal Comey in the leaking would have been foolish. *Confidential* is the lowest level of classification.
He has already been removed from his job. Hes a first time offender. Worst case, he would have had to pay a fine. As a multimillionaire, a fine would be absurd.
Nobody would have sent the Cardinal to prison over this.
The optics would have been terrible.
Its a good call, if you have the capacity to see around corners.
