Comey Criticized For Memo ‘Violations’
Former FBI honcho James Comey is in hot water over a recently-released Justice Department report alleging policy violations in interactions with the administration.
The New York Times says the new report accuses the former director of "disclosing memos about his interactions with President Trump to people outside the bureau."
“Comey violated F.B.I. policy and the requirements of his F.B.I. employment agreement when he chose this path,” the report says.
More specifically, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has faulted Mr. Comey for releasing memos to his lawyers that were determined after the fact to be of a "classified" nature.
President Trump was prompt in his attack on Mr. Comey: "Perhaps never in the history of our Country has someone been more thoroughly disgraced and excoriated than James Comey in the just released Inspector General’s Report. He should be ashamed of himself!" (Twitter)
Mr. Comey lashed back at is critics Thursday: “I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me, but a quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice.”
