Inspector General Michael Horowitz said that he did in fact, refer FBI Director James Comey for prosecution.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said Wednesday that he referred former FBI Director James B. Comey for criminal prosecution this year after concluding he leaked sensitive materials to a friend.
And the Justice Department watchdog told Congress he would “assess” Republican allegations of inconsistent statements in Mr. Comey’s testimony before the Senate.
Mr. Horowitz’s disclosure that he made the criminal referral marks his first public statement about the criticism lodged against Mr. Comey in a report released last summer. He told lawmakers it is standard practice to make a criminal referral when wrongdoing is suspected.
“We are required by the [Inspector General] Act to send information that we’ve identified that could plausibly be criminal to the Department of Justice,” Mr. Horowitz said.
As we reported last month they decided not to prosecute Comey although he violated FBI policies.
The Mainstream Press and Democrats better start calling for his prosecution. They all wanted President Trump to be impeached(and then likely prosecuted) for doing nothing after the Mueller probe was released. Had Mueller called for President Trump indictment we would have never heard the end of it.
The DOJ let us down. Will we get a Trump tweet about this?
