By The Daily Caller. Former FBI director James Comey is under investigation for mishandling classified information, DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz revealed Monday.
He is specifically under investigation for his handling of memos he wrote about interactions with President Trump while FBI director.
“Comey said he did not expect a report on his handling of classified information because, ‘That’s frivolous.’ I don’t happen to think that it is frivolous,” Sen. Chuck Grassley said during a Senate hearing Monday.
Grassley: "Is the IG investigating Comey's handling of his memos about Trump?"
Horowitz: "Yes, we're investigating it and will produce a report on it."

FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz were testifying before the panel.
During the hearing, Horowitz revealed that the DOJ watchdog is already investigating Comey concerning his leaked memos documenting his interactions with President Trump, which critics charged may have contained classified information.
“We’ve received a referral on that from the FBI … and we will issue a report when the matter is complete,” Horowitz said.
Under questioning from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX, Wray pointedly refused to discuss specifics over whether Comey had lied in his previous testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, citing “pending” investigative matters at the FBI.
