IG Report on Comey Leak: Violated FBI Policy, But DOJ Passes on Criminal Prosecution

Good news for disgraced former FBI director James Comey. He won’t be criminally prosecuted for leaking memos of his conversations with President Trump.

The bad news for Comey. It ain’t that he didn’t break the law. In a scathing report, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded Comey’s “retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.” Also, it “set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees.” Michael Horowitz also slammed Comey for releasing sensitive information in his personal desire to force the appointment of a Special Counsel.

Horowitz’s conclusion is absolutely withering. Comey “failed to live up to” his responsibility to “protect sensitive law...
