DOJ watchdog says Comey violated FBI policies

OLIVIA BEAVERS AND MORGAN CHALFANT

EXCERPT:

A scathing report released Thursday by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General found former FBI Director James Comey violated bureau policies and his employment agreement with his handling of official memos.

The investigation concerned memos detailing Comey’s interactions and conversations with President Trump.

“We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement,” the report states. It noted that “much of the content of the Memos was directly tied to FBI investigative activities.”

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz declined to make a recommendation as to whether to charge the former FBI chief. But he said Comey broke FBI policies by seeking to share unauthorized information about ongoing investigations with a friend — who then gave the information to The New York Times two months after Comey was removed from the FBI by Trump.

Comey was removed from the FBI as the agency investigated Russia’s intervention in the 2016 presidential election. His firing immediately raised questions about whether Trump was seeking to obstruct an investigation into the election.

The leaking of the memos that Comey gave to his friend, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman, were intended to prompt the appointment of a special counsel, according to Comey. That came pass when the Justice Department (DOJ) appointed special counsel Robert Mueller.

The report states that Comey provided Richman with one unclassified memo that contained sensitive information with instructions to share its contents with a reporter. The memo, which contained details about a conversation Comey had with Trump regarding the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, did not contain classified information but was determined by the bureau to be “for official use only.”

Hasn’t Trump repeatedly claimed Comey “leaked classified information?”

Yeah, you're right, Comey's actions are above reproach, he's probably the best director the FBI's ever had, eh? I mean, who in their right mind would call an illegal server in Hillary's basement corruption, or deleting the 33,000 e-mails it contained obstruction of justice? In your eyes, he's probably just one miracle away from Sainthood...

Was Trump correct in his assertions that Comey "leaked classified information," yes or no?

No, apparently Comey did not leak classified information, but the intent of his leaks speaks for itself...

Was Obama lying when he said, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period”?
