AND YOU WONDER WHY COMEY HAS GONE QUIET …
Inspector General Horowitz confirmed Monday during a Congressional hearing that former FBI Director James Comey is under investigation for his handling of classified information. James Comey is in a world of trouble. Former FBI Director Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump of which at least 4 of 7 of the memos contained classified information. A fired Comey then gave contents of his memos to his friend Daniel Richman to leak to the New York Times. The purpose of this was to prompt a Special Counsel, which is what occurred. It would appear those leaked memos are now being investigated by the IG.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed publicly Monday that his office is investigating James Comey for his handling of classified information as part of memos he shared documenting discussions with President Trump.
The inspector general’s comments confirmed reports dating back to April that the ex-FBI director was facing scrutiny, amid revelations that at least two of the memos he shared with his friend, Columbia University Professor Daniel Richman, contained information now deemed classified.
The confirmation came during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray testified on the findings in the IG’s report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
