WASHINGTON, D.C. —
James Comey met with his brother Peter Comey at his residence during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, according to an FBI security officer senior enough to receive classified security briefings.
Big League Politics has learned that James Comey’s communications with his brother could disqualify him as a witness in any investigations that he has been involved in, due to conflict of interest.
James’ brother Peter Comey works as Senior Real Estate Director of Operations for the Americas for DLA Piper, the Clinton-connected law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. DLA Piper performed the supposedly independent audit of the Clinton Foundation after the scandal first broke last year.
Peter Comey has a direct line at the offices of DLA Piper, which is based in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
Peter Comey has held his title at DLA Piper since June 2011, after the Obama administration expressed interest in the career of James Comey. Peter Comey also works as a real estate consultant for Procon Consulting, a firm that won the contract to re-design FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
