Former FBI Director James Comey leaked classified information to his attorneys and violated Department of Justice policies guiding the retention,handling,and dissemination of government documents,according to a report released on Aug.29 by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

根据司法部监察长迈克尔·霍洛维茨829日发布的一份报告,前联邦调查局局长詹姆斯·科米向他的律师泄露了机密信息,并违反了司法部指导保留、处理和传播政府文件的政策。

At one point during the two-year investigation,Horowitz determined that Comey leaked classified information and referred the matter to the Department of Justice(DOJ),which declined prosecution.The DOJ declined to say when the decision was made.

在为期两年的调查中,霍洛维茨一度断定科米泄露了机密信息,并将此事提交给司法部(DOJ),后者拒绝起诉。司法部拒绝透露这一决定是何时做出的。

After the DOJ declined prosecution,Horowitz continued the investigation to determine whether Comey violated department and FBI policies.

在司法部拒绝起诉后,霍洛维茨继续调查科米是否违反了司法部和联邦调查局的政策。

"We conclude that Comey's retention,handling,and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies,and his FBI Employment Agreement,"the report(pdf)states.

"我们的结论是,科米保留、处理和传播某些备忘录违反了部门和联邦调查局的政策,以及他的联邦调查局雇佣协议,"报告(pdf)指出。

Comey wrote seven memos as a record of his conversations with President-elect Donald Trump and later when Trump was president.When Trump fired Comey on May 9,2017,Comey leaked one memo to The New York Times through his friend and personal attorney,Daniel Richman.Comey claims to have leaked the memo in an attempt to force the appointment of a special counsel.The day after The New York Times published an article based on the memo,Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller.

科米写了七份备忘录,记录了他与候任总统唐纳德·特朗普以及后来特朗普担任总统时的对话。当特朗普于201759日解雇科米时,科米通过他的朋友兼私人律师丹尼尔·里奇曼(Daniel Richman)向《纽约时报》泄露了一份备忘录。科米声称泄露这份备忘录是为了强迫任命一名特别检察官。在《纽约时报》发表了一篇基于这份备忘录的文章的第二天,司法部副部长罗德·罗森斯坦任命了特别检察官罗伯特·穆勒。

The inspector general found that Comey did not disclose any classified information to the media.Horowitz did determine that a portion of one of the four memos Comey gave to his lawyers contained information classified at the confidential level.

监察长发现科米没有向媒体透露任何机密信息。霍洛维茨确定,科米给他的律师的四份备忘录中,有一部分包含机密级别的信息。

Horowitz delivered a scathing rebuke to Comey in the conclusion of the report,finding that Comey"failed to live up to his responsibility"by disclosing government documents in violation of FBI policy.

霍洛维茨在报告的结论中对科米进行了严厉的指责,认为科米违反联邦调查局的政策,泄露政府文件,"没有履行自己的责任"

"By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment,and by using it to create public pressure for official action,Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees—and the many thousands more former FBI employees—who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information,"the report states.

报告称,"科米没有保护自己在 FBI 任职期间获得的敏感信息,并利用这些信息对公众施加压力,要求官方采取行动,这为超过3.5万名现任 FBI 雇员以及数以千计的前 FBI 雇员树立了危险的榜样。这些雇员同样可以接触或了解非公开信息。"

Comey issued a response on Twitter,quoting a portion of the report which dealt with whether Comey violated federal law concerning the disclosure of classified information.

科米在 Twitter 上发表了回应,引用了报告中有关科米是否违反了有关泄露机密信息的联邦法律的部分内容。

"DOJ IG'found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media,'"Comey wrote."I don't need a public apology from those who defamed me,but a quick message with a'sorry we lied about you'would be nice."

"司法部检察长'没有发现任何证据表明科米或他的律师向媒体公布了任何备忘录中的机密信息,"'科米写道。"我不需要那些诽谤我的人向我公开道歉,但一句'对不起,我们对你撒谎了'的简短信息就够了。"

"And to all those who've spent two years talking about me'going to jail'or being a'liar and a leaker'—ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long,including the president,"Comey added.

"对于那些花了两年时间谈论我'进监狱''说谎和泄密'的人,问问你们自己,为什么你们仍然相信那些长期以来给你们提供错误信息的人,包括总统,"科米说。

Comey wrote seven memos between Jan.6 and April 11,2016.He kept the second,fourth,sixth,and seventh memos in a personal safe at his home and the three other memos at the FBI.The inspector general determined that Comey violated department policies when he failed to surrender the memos to the FBI after he was fired.The former FBI director also breached policy when he failed to notify the bureau that he disclosed the documents to his lawyers.

科米在201616日至411日之间写了7份备忘录。他把第二份、第四份、第六份和第七份备忘录存放在家里的私人保险箱里,还有联邦调查局的其他三份备忘录。监察长认定科米在被解雇后没有向联邦调查局交出备忘录违反了部门政策。这位前联邦调查局局长也违反了政策,因为他没有通知调查局,他向自己的律师透露了这些文件。

Comey first leaked information to Richman shortly after he was fired on May 9,2017.Richman admitted being the source for the May 11,2017,article by The New York Times about Trump asking Comey for his loyalty.Days later,on May 16,2017,Comey sent a digital photo of the fourth memo to Richman and instructed Richman to provide the photo to a New York Times reporter.The memo contained Trump's asking Comey about"letting Flynn go."On May 17,Rosenstein appointed Mueller.

科米在201759日被解雇后不久首次向里奇曼泄露信息。里奇曼承认是2017511日《纽约时报》关于特朗普要求科米忠诚的文章的消息来源。几天后,也就是2017516日,科米向里奇曼发送了第四份备忘录的数码照片,并指示里奇曼将照片提供给《纽约时报》的一名记者。备忘录中包含了特朗普要求科米"放走弗林"的内容 517日,罗森斯坦任命了穆勒。

The special counsel then embarked on a 22-month investigation which finished earlier this year.Mueller concluded that neither Trump nor anyone in his campaign colluded with Russia.Attorney General William Barr determined there was insufficient evidence to bring an obstruction of justice charge against the president.

随后,特别检察官展开了为期22个月的调查,调查于今年早些时候结束。穆勒的结论是,特朗普和他竞选团队中的任何人都没有与俄罗斯勾结。司法部长 William Barr 认为没有足够的证据对总统提出最高妨碍司法的指控。

"Because Comey shamefully leaked information to the press—in blatant violation of FBI policies—the Nation was forced to endure the baseless politically motivated,two-year witch hunt.Comey disgraced himself and his office to further a personal political agenda,and this report further confirms that fact,"the White House press secretary said in a statement.

"由于科米公然违反联邦调查局的政策,可耻地向媒体泄露信息,美国被迫忍受毫无根据的政治动机的两年政治迫害。白宫新闻发言人在一份声明中说:"科米为了推进个人政治议程而让自己和他的办公室蒙羞,这份报告进一步证实了这一事实。"

Rep.Doug Collins(R-Ga.)said that the DOJ IG's findings further cement"the need for us to get to the root of how the Russia investigation began."

共和党人道格·柯林斯(R-Ga.)他说,司法部检察长的调查结果进一步强化了"我们需要找到俄罗斯调查开始的根源"

"It's time to restore Americans'confidence that federal law enforcement is committed to justice and free from political gamesmanship,"Collins said in a statement.

柯林斯在一份声明中说:"是时候恢复美国人的信心了,他们相信联邦执法机构致力于伸张正义,摆脱政治游戏。"

"This report confirms that James Comey violated the FBI's own standards of conduct and was dishonest about how he handled classified material."

"这份报告证实,詹姆斯·科米违反了联邦调查局自己的行为准则,并且在处理机密材料方面不诚实。"

Horowitz noted that Comey departed from his own guidance in sharing the memos,pointing to Comey's testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.Comey was reluctant to share details with the committee on March 20,2017,about the bureau's ongoing Russian interference investigation.He told lawmakers that"the FBI is very careful in how we handle information about our cases and about the people we are investigating."

霍洛维茨指出,科米在分享备忘录时背离了自己的指导方针,他指出,科米在众议院常设情报特别委员会(House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence)面前作证。2017320日,关于调查局正在进行的俄罗斯干涉调查,科米不愿向委员会透露细节。他告诉立法者,"联邦调查局在处理我们的案件和我们正在调查的人的信息时非常谨慎。"

"Our ability to share details with the Congress and the American people is limited when
those investigations are still open,which I hope makes sense,"Comey said."We need to protect people's privacy….We just cannot do our work well or fairly if we start talking about it while we're doing it."

"在这些调查仍在进行的时候,我们与国会和美国人民分享细节的能力是有限的,我希望这样做是有意义的,"科米说。"我们需要保护人们的隐私.....。如果我们在工作的时候开始谈论它,我们就不可能把工作做好,也不可能做得公平。"

The report faults Comey for leaking a memo to The New York Times two months after making that statement,even though the document contained information about an ongoing investigation into Flynn and,as Comey admitted,evidence for a potential obstruction of justice investigation against Trump.

报告指责 Comey 在发表声明两个月后向《纽约时报》泄露了一份备忘录,尽管这份文件包含了对 Flynn 正在进行的调查的信息,而且正如 Comey 承认的那样,有证据表明妨碍司法可能会对 Trump 进行调查。

"We have previously faulted Comey for acting unilaterally and inconsistent with Department policy.Comey's unauthorized disclosure of sensitive law enforcement information about the Flynn investigation merits similar criticism,"the inspector general stated.

"我们以前曾指责科米单方面采取行动,不符合国防部的政策。科米未经授权泄露有关弗林调查的敏感执法信息,也值得类似的批评。"

"Comey had several other lawful options available to him to advocate for the appointment of a Special Counsel,which he told us was his goal in making the disclosure.What was not permitted was the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive investigative information,obtained during the course of FBI employment,in order to achieve a personally desired outcome."

"科米还有其他几个合法的选择,可供他主张任命一名特别检察官,他告诉我们,这是他披露此事的目的。不允许未经授权披露在联邦调查局任职期间获得的敏感调查信息,以达到个人所希望的结果

According to the report,during the course of the investigation some of Comey's close advisers used words like"surprised,""stunned,""shocked,"and"disappointment"when they learned what Comey had done.

报告称,在调查过程中,科米的一些亲密顾问在得知科米的所作所为时,使用了"惊讶""震憾""震惊""失望"等词汇。

The DOJ IG referred the findings to the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility to determine if any action is necessary.The Justice Department declined to comment.

司法部检察长将调查结果提交司法部专业责任办公室,以确定是否有必要采取任何行动。司法部拒绝置评。
