James Comey Is Officially Under Investigation
Former FBI director James Comey is the subject of an Inspector General investigation into his well-documented leaking of classified information.
In fact, the FBI — Comey’s old Bureau — made the referral for an investigation to the IG’s office, inspector general Michael Horowitz told Congress Monday.
“We received a referral on that from the FBI. We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete, consistent with the law and rules that are, a report that’s consistent and takes those into account,” Horowitz said in his testimony.
Many people forgot that Comey is under investigation for his leaking. Comey has gone on to a book tour and a post teaching “ethical leadership” at William and Mary.
Big League Politics reported in April: At least two memos that Comey gave to a friend named Daniel Richman, a professor at Columbia Law School, contained classified information.
According to the Wall Street Journal, The Justice Department inspector general is now conducting an investigation into classification issues related to the Comey memos.
President Trump has repeatedly bashed Comey for leaking classified intel to the press, including memos that predicated the hiring of a special counsel and the never-ending “Russian collusion” investigation.
Big League Politics also reported on the closeness between Daniel Richman and the Russian lawyer spy at the heart of the Fusion GPS effort to set up the Trump campaign for Russian collusion in Trump Tower, writing:
