DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz Reveals He Referred James Comey For Criminal Prosecution

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Wednesday morning.

Horowitz revealed to lawmakers that he criminally referred former FBI Director James Comey for prosecution.

The Washington Times reported:

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Wednesday that he referred ex-FBI Director James Comey for criminal prosecution.

“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,” said Mr. Horowitz, confirming what amounted to a criminal referral.

The Justice Department ultimately decided not to prosecute Mr. Comey despite Mr. Horowitz’s team concluding he improperly leaked information to the news media. The documents leaked by Mr. Comey were sensitive, but not classified.

Comey gave portions of his classified memos to his friend-turned-lawyer-turned-unpaid-FBI-official Daniel Richman to leak to the New York Times in order to prompt a special counsel investigation into President Trump.

Horowitz released a report last month on Comey’s handling of his classified memos and said he “set a dangerous example” when he leaked his Trump memos to his friends and attorneys.

Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) on Wednesday asked Horowitz to investigate allegations that Comey lied during a 2017 Senate hearing because there were “numerous” times where Comey’s testimony did not match up with what was written in Horowitz’s report.Horowitz agreed to look into the allegations, according to the Washington Times.

Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) called Horowitz’s revelation that he criminally referred Comey for prosecution “monumental.”
