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 Justice Department ultimately declined prosecution and despite Comey bragging about this, the IG indeed concluded he criminally acted.

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.”

Comey is not out of the woods yet because the Inspector General is releasing another report on FISA abuse any day now.

It's All Over Now, Take What You Think Is Necessary

I suspect that Barr and Trump are awaiting the FISA IG report as there are more serious charges that may be applied to Comey and McCabe for prosecution.  Barr may offer each in turn to rollover for a lighter sentences.  Comey probably has info on Loretta Lynch, then the DoJ AG.  Lynch, in turn, has info on Hillary and Obama. 

I see dead people from positions of once high intellect that were stupidly
placed or voted into those areas. Of course the Beast walks and Bill's nose
finally falls off.  And to think, PP can't sell those tainted evil parts.
Maybe some have gold in those grills.
