DC ready to pull James Comey back in
Washington, D.C., could soon be seeing more of former FBI Director James Comey, following his book tour across the U.S. promoting his memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.
Lawmakers on the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees — who are conducting probes concerning the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server — are preparing to interview Comey following the August recess to press him on his decision-making process leading up to the 2016 election…
Meanwhile, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch revealed on Friday that the FBI has asked Comey to keep federal records and submit other FBI records he currently has back to the FBI.
The move happened after Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation voiced concern about Comey maintaining government documents on his personal email accounts following the Justice Department’s inspector general report released in June that claimed there were “numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account (a Gmail account) to conduct FBI business.”
Judicial Watch also filed a motion requesting that a federal court require the documents be preserved, amid fears that the documents could be lost or damaged.
