Inspector General Investigating James Comey Over Classified Information

The Wall Street Journal reported:

At least two of the memos that former FBI Director James Comey gave to a friend outside of the government contained information that officials now consider classified, according to people familiar with the matter, prompting a review by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.

Of those two memos, Mr. Comey himself redacted elements of one that he knew to be classified to protect secrets before he handed the documents over to his friend. He determined at the time that another memo contained no classified information, but after he left the Federal Bureau of Investigation, bureau officials upgraded it to “confidential,” the lowest level of classification.

The Justice Department inspector general is now conducting an investigation into classification issues related to the Comey memos, according to a person familiar with the matter. Mr. Comey has said he considered the memos personal rather than government documents.

According to the Gateway Pundit, redacted notes written by discredited ex FBI Director James Comey were published online on Thursday evening.

Comey wrote seven memos coming from nine discussions he had with President Trump during his tenure at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

After being threatened with a subpoena, the 15-page text was delivered to Congress by the Justice Department on Thursday.

Congress has issued both redacted and unredacted versions of Comey’s documents.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey had written about the notes in his book and leaked the memos to reporters last year.

Congress has not yet taken a look at the documents


This suggests that the fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked classified information to the press.

Only time will tell if this investigation will lead to any prosecution.
