Disgraced Former FBI Director James Comey is now reportedly under investigation by the DOJ over illegal leaks of confidential information during his tenure.
Department of Justice investigators were probing whether James Comey had anything to do with a leaked document suspected to be fabricated by the Russian government and obtained by Dutch intelligence officials. The Dutch provided it to the FBI while Comey was director.
That document helped Comey make the fateful decision to announce his refusal to charge then-candidate Hillary Clinton in July 2016.
The report from the New York Times added that the probe was “highly unusual” and could open the Department of Justice to accusations of political impartiality.
Former congressman Trey Gowdy criticized Comey for denying that he had leaked information during his time as FBI director.
