James Comey under official investigation for leaking classified memos

Former FBI boss James Comey is officially under criminal investigation by the DOJ, Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed on Monday.

According to the IG, Comey is being investigated for intentionally and maliciously leaking classified memos to the press immediately following his firing by the President.

“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 Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley.

“Question number one, Mr. Horowitz, are you investigating the handling of his memo and does that include the classification issues, and should Mr. Comey expect a report when it’s complete?” Grassley asked.

“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 responded.



  1. To Q:
    As each day passes America loses more innocents.
    What good can come from gather all of the evidence against this “deep state” when witnesses to the crimes are murdered? Just one example “Fast and Furious” Cover-up, FBI Agent Was to Testify but Now He Is Dead, and His Wife Too?
    How about the daily loss due to Child Trafficking?
    How about the Americans who have answered the call to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?
    This list seems endless over Our last 60 years when Americans have time to ponder.
    The most humble of Presidents once said
    ” they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    Abraham Lincoln
    November 19, 1863

    We the People have been fighting this Battle for 60 years.
