No wonder James Comey was so hesitant to go after Hillary over her email scandal. He didn’t want it to become known that he was also using a personal email account for official business. Unbelievable!
FOX News reports:
Comey used personal email to conduct FBI business, watchdog report finds
Former FBI Director James Comey used a personal email account to “conduct unclassified FBI business,” the Justice Department’s watchdog revealed in an explosive report on the bureau’s conduct in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote that he found Comey’s use of personal email to be “inconsistent with Department policy,” citing what he called “the absence of exigent circumstances and the frequency with which the use of personal email occurred.”
Horowitz also revealed that FBI agent Peter Strzok used his personal email account for government business. Most notably, Horowitz wrote that Strzok forwarded an email to his personal account regarding a proposed search warrant for former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer. Horowitz wrote that the email on Strzok’s personal account contained information “that appears to have been under seal at the time” in federal court.
Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation last year after Horowitz’s office discovered anti-Trump text messages between him and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
Time to open another new investigation. This time for Comey.
