An Inspector General report released Thursday says ex-FBI Director James Comey violated FBI policies by retaining and leaking memos of private conversations with President Trump. The memos Comey kept were official FBI records.
The IG determined Comey kept copies of the memos in a personal safe at his house after his release which is a direct violation of FBI policies and his FBI employment agreement by failing to notify the bureau that he had retained them.
Comey provided copies of the memos to three private attorneys without FBI authorization.
The report concluded, "By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using (the memos) to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for over 35,000 current FBI employees and the thousands of former FBI employees who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information."
Former FBI Director James Comey will not be prosecuted.
