Horowitz Reveals That Comey Is Under DOJ Investigation Over Mishandling Classified Info

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made a stunning admission during Monday Congressional Testimony that former FBI Director James Comey is under a separate and ongoing investigation over mishandling of classified information - when asked by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) about 

Grassley: “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. 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?” 

Horowitz: “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.”

Earlier Monday, Grassley demanded in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray that the agency provide information regarding revelations from last week's Inspector General report that former FBI Director James Comey used personal email accounts to conduct official business - which neither the FBI or the Inspector General independently verified during an internal investigations.

On June 14, the Committee received the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General report entitled, “A Review of Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election.” The report found that FBI employees Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and even former Director James Comey used personal e-mail accounts and devices to conduct official government business in violation of FBI policy. The revelation about Mr. Comey’s use of personal email for work was new. Thus, it is important to understand what steps the FBI has taken, if any, to retrieve work-related communications from former Director Comey’s personal email account -Chuck Grassley

Grassley's letter then states that "there appears to have been no independent verification by the Inspector General or the FBI. Without access to his private account, independent verification is impossible. The Justice Department should apply at least as much scrutiny to its own former Director as it applied to the former Secretary of State."

As a reminder, the disclosure in last week's OIG report that Comey was also abusing his personal email account, prompted the following brutal troll from Hillary Clinton, who has repeatedly accused Comey (together with everyone and everything else) of costing her the election.

To that end - Grassley's letter reads "It is disturbing that FBI employees tasked with investigating Secretary Clinton, including the former Director, appear to have engaged in strikingly similar conduct."

Grassley notes that "When the OIG asked former Director Comey if he was concerned about his decision to conduct FBI business on his personal laptop or email, he admitted he was unsure whether he acted in accordance with FBI regulations. He stated, “I don’t know. I think so, but I don’t know. I remember talking to Jim [Rybicki] about it at one time, and I had the sense that it was okay.”

The Committee Chairman then brings up "serious questions about Director Comey's transmission of his memos about conversations with President Trump, some of which contained classified information, to Daniel Richman, Patrick Fitzgerald, and David Kelley."

Secretary Clinton alienated thousands of federal records when she used a nongovernment server and email for official work. Many of those records were deleted rather than returned to the State Department when the Department requested them. Some of those records contained classified information. Here, it is appears as if the FBI has not even sought the return of those records. -Chuck Grassley

The letter then asks four questions of the DOJ, requesting a response by next Friday, June 29:

  1. Has the FBI requested that former Director Comey provide any official work-related material from his personal devices and email accounts or access to those accounts? If not, why not? If so, did he cooperate?
  2. Has the FBI conducted or attempted to conduct searches of non-FBI-issued communications devices or non-FBI email accounts associated with former Director Comey for official work-related material? If not, why not?
  3. Do you agree with former Director Comey that the question of whether he transmitted classified information on unclassified systems is “frivolous”?
  4. Has the FBI taken any steps to secure, retrieve, or clean any classified information transmitted by former Director Comey off of any unclassified computer systems? If so, please explain in detail what steps were taken and when. a. If the answer is yes, then please describe how that answer is consistent with the FBI’s claim that there was no “indication” that classified information “ever” transited Director Comey’s personal email.

Forget about hacking for a moment... Comey’s use of personal e-mail is treason - any Google employee with sufficient User Access Rights could’ve accessed his Gmail mailbox.

Stop “asking” Comey and start waterboarding him already!   ;-)

They might want to check into ObaMao's "disturbing email use"...under a faked name...with Hillary...across her illegal server...while she was in a foreign country...as well.

Jus sayin.

///////

And...as we have all said, they are not "Comeys memos"...they never were. They are in fact classified US government documents, which he stole, then gave them to his non-security cleared, BFF, Columbia "law professor" (lol) Daniel Richman, for the expressed purpose of, having Richman give those same classified government documents to the Alinsky NYT's. 

So where we're at here is, the former Director of the FBI (Comey) was fired for insubordination, he then stole government property as he walked out the door. The #2 of the FBI (McCabe) was fired for lying & obstruction. 

Now, the lead FBI counter-intel agent (Strzok) who was up to his eyeballs in obstructing/diverting the Hillary email investigation was then put on "the Trump-Hitler-Putin Russia collusion investigation" in which he (and others) submitted verifiably false information to a FISA court judge, the result of which was, an illegal (because it becomes illegal when knowingly false evidence is presented to a court, any conviction is thrown out) surveillance on Trumps National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and bankrupted him. 

We haven't even touched on the entrapment aspects of what the Deep State did and is still doing with Comey's other BFF & mentor (yes, his mentor) the Grand Inquisitor Mueller acting under his own imprimatur of "law" . 

All of this abuse of authority, this Stasi-style usurpation of justice...because they preferred Hillary fucking Clinton?!

They should be thrown in a dungeon and fed rat meat for the rest of their lives on that basis alone ;-)

Seriously. Hillary's trolling shows her utter nonself-aware strategic blindness. Yes, Cankles, thanks for bringing yourself back into the discussion; it is indeed enlightening that you have been expnerated for your criminal negligence by another traitor who was mismanaging classified Gov-property information through his private channels.

Thank you indeed. Now please die.

we will issue a report when the matter is complete.

 

Theres that word again. The untouchable's term for investigation. Much softer as to not infer anything serious, but an attempt to pacify with the appearance of an investigation. An attempt to display justice without any actual justice exacted. A seed planted to reduce the future outrage impact in an already decided no wrongdoing outcome. We are looking into a matter involving him, but you, you are under federal investigation. 

 

Have you ever been the subject of a Federal Investigation? 

Yes __ No_x_

If yes, explain:_________________________

Hang them all.

Breaking Federal Judge issues warrant for Comey. FBI report, Comey found dead.

Breaking Federal Judge issues warrant for Hillary Rodham Clinton. FBI report, Clinton found dead.

Breaking Federal Judge issues order for mental examination of Mueller including brain scan to determine brain injuries from Vietnam war, diagnosis criminally insane. Mueller is in route to Sunnyside mental institution at an undisclosed secure compound.

Breaking Federal Judge issues warrant for John Brennan, Clapper, Obama, Rice, the one who looks like an Ape, Cheney, Bush II, Bush I, the entire Bush clan, and don't forget the rapist, pedo, who covered for a massive rogue CIA cocaine network at an airport when he was governor that resulted in the killings of two kids, Bill Clinton isn't just a cocaine addict, rapist pedo, he's also a murderer with Murdering Bitch Hillary, and don't forget swindler and con man, and there's more, the Clinton Foundation.

Sessions needs to put down that Bible and pick up a rope, hang the enemies of our people or resign. period. There's more than a hundred people who need to be hanging, right Hillary?

Did Clinton say, if Trump wins, we'll all hang? Sessions where are the indictments?

While Americans pour more fuel into their domestic political differences and remain preoccupied with the mysteries and intrigues of their last Presidential election, one thing is certain: Regardless of whom they elected and any election promises to the contrary, it is the same result for Syria and the US-led Anglo-Zionist regime-change operations in the Levant. The fake-news and deflection will continue unabated, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

I just find it simply fascinating as hell that, with all the hoovering up of the entire worlds metadata by the Five Eyes countries and the vast intelligence apparatus and manpower at their beck & call 24/7/365...

...they still can't find their own double agent, errr, ummm, I mean, the distinguished Maltese Professor Joseph Mifsud, anywhere on the face of the planet.

It's jus the damndest thing! ;-)

I think Mr.Mifsud is a very long thread to be pulled and yes, there is the possibility he's already been ground up into dog food but I always hold to the general theory (proven time & time again...lol) that they are genuinely incompetent and incapable covering their tracks.

In my mind there are only two real possibilities regarding the allegiances and/or motivations of the shadowy Mr.Mifsud and both of them involve complicity on the part of the Deep State.

He is either Russia's or the Deep States "asset".

That is to say, he was allowed or prompted by FBI counter-intel to plant "a premise" for the purposes of entrapment and then they ran with "that discovery" or he is exactly what Grand Inquisitor Mueller professes to be chasing.

Its just that, he & they don't seem to be chasing him very hard, which says a lot to me ;-)

Seems to me, the government should apply at least as much scrutiny to the Hillary lovers as Hillary got Obama and his cabal to scrutinize Trump Russia collusion.  Mueller is providing the justification and tactics to use against Hillary, Obama and their minions.  Turning their tactics (the legal ones, not the tactics of lying to the court they used) against them would be justice.  Obama and Hillary would already be in jail for obstructing justice due to their actions during their home detention.
