The people named should be indicted for crimes, they should be tried and then they should be shot. Why fool around with jail? These people were running a coup and they got caught. To quote the Vogon captain, death's too good for them.

Nothing is ever final in Washington....

All’s well that ends well. Even James Comey was happy, dashing off an oped in the Washington Post touting his and the organization’s vindication. 
Except, within hours of the release of the report, along comes U.S. Attorney John Durham—who has been investigating much of the same territory but with a wider berth and prosecutorial powers— to spoil the occasion: 
“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” 
Predication is, of course, the heart of the matter. Just why did the FBI open an investigation of Trump-Russia collusion that proved, after nearly two years, to be non-existent? Was there real justification somewhere, no matter how obscure, as the IG suggests, or was it a set-up, as implied in Lee Smith’s recent “The Plot Against the President”?

people working in the civilian government of our country have a problem that is of a making in their own minds. it goes something like this: what good does it do to become powerful and famous when those around you require you to behave as a normal person would; what good does it do to behave as a normal person should when you are powerful and face no consequences when you do not.
As far as DOJ and many in the executive branch is concerned, I see this as the crux of the matter. If those named persons are not to be prosecuted and possibly punished, why are they named? For fame?
As a fictional character once said, "everybody knows who did the crime, the question is who wants to say so in public?".
The idea of Dir. Wray introducing new rules and reforms is at best humorous. the named persons did not obey the law either the letter or the spirit, why should they do so from here on in? perhaps the rules and reforms need to have some what more punitive bite to them than what exists now. The rules the government levies on the citizens are full of civil penalties for non-compliance; why not also for those government employees? why are government employees considered a protected class as if some are more equal than others? We already have the protected class of the Congress to put up with, does anyone think we need more of them?
let's not even open the can of worms called the Senior Executive Service, some of Epstein's best customers(who didn't kill himself).

That needs to change. Hard. I come from a line of people used to being held accountable. It seems to have changed but there's no reason it
