Disgraced former FBI boss James Comey is officially under investigation by the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, IG Michael Horowitz revealed during Congressional testimony Monday.
According to the Daily Caller, the IG went on to say that Comey was specifically being investigated for intentionally leaking classified memos with a longtime associate immediately following his firing by President Trump.
“Comey said he did not expect a report on his handling of classified information because, ‘That’s frivolous.’ I don’t happen to think that it is frivolous,” asked Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley.
“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 fired back.
