According to a bombshell New York Times report, the Justice Department is now investigating fired FBI Director James Comey for illegally leaking information regarding Russia to the media
Check out what Fox News reported:
The new review, which the Times downplayed as a possibly politically motivated probe, reportedly concerned a Russian intelligence document “claiming a tacit understanding between the Clinton campaign and the [Obama] Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server,” as the Post described it in May 2017.
Dutch intelligence accessed the document on Russian computers and provided it to the FBI. Included in the document was a discussion between Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., then the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, and Leonard Benardo, who worked with the George Soros-founded group Open Society Foundations.
Schultz told Benardo in the document that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch would ensure Clinton was not prosecuted in the email probe.
The two have denied the conversation, and citing “people familiar with its contents,” the Post reported in 2017 that the document “has long been viewed within the FBI as unreliable and possibly a fake” by Russians.
It appears that Comey may now be one of those “persons familiar with” the contents in the documents according to the New York Times.
This key document was important when it came to Comey’s announcement in 2016 that no “reasonable prosecutor” would charge Hillary Clinton. According to the New York Times, Comey was scared that Russia might leak the email which would undermine his investigation.
