Jemes Comey har problemer med å få sin fremstilling til å henge sammen. Han sablet ned Trump under promo-turen for boken sin i vår.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz bekreftet mandag at tidligere FBI-sjef James Comey er under etterforskning for sin omgang med hemmelighetsstemplede dokumenter.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed publicly Monday that his office is investigating James Comey for his handling of classified information as part of memos he shared documenting discussions with President Trump. (…)
“We received a referral on that from the FBI,” Horowitz said, in response to questioning from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, about the Comey memos. “We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete and consistent with the law and rules.”
Comey skrev syv memorandum etter sine samtaler med Trump. Han ga dem til sin gode venn, professor Daniel Richman, for at denne skulle lekke dem til the New York Times.
Spørsmålet meldte seg om Comey lekket fortrolig informasjon. Det ble ikke bedre da Comey avslørte at han hadde ansatt Richman i en spesialstilling i FBI:
Comey, in testimony before Congress last year, acknowledged he shared the memos with the intention of leaking to the press and spurring the appointment of a special counsel.
In April, Fox News initially learned that Horowitz was looking into whether classified information was given to unauthorized sources as part of a broader review of Comey’s communications outside the bureau—including media contact.
Comey, whom Trump fired in May 2017, denied that sharing the memos with his legal team constituted a leak of classified information. Instead, he compared the process to keeping “a diary.”
Men det stemmer dårlig med denne definisjonen at 15 sider var sladdet pga sikkerhetshensyn da de ble offentlig kjent.
