Congress refers conflicting Comey testimony to the IG

Hot AirThe DOJ Inspector General’s work is never done. Just last month IG Horowitz released a report which concluded that former FBI Director James Comey violated bureau policy by treating official records as if they were his personal documents. Today, Horowitz testified before Congress and was asked by Rep. Mark Meadows about some apparent discrepancies between what Comey told the IG during that investigation and what Comey had said during congressional testimony last year. Rep. Meadows said a referral would be forthcoming and Horowitz agreed to look over the information.

Comey managed to skate the IG's referrals for leaking his memos, but he may have lied to Congress in the process of his political operations. I don't know that these referrals will be taken any more seriously than the others by DOJ, but it keeps Comey under legal threat. And given how eagerly Obama's DOJ and Mueller's special counsel prosecuted people for "lying", Comey deserves a full meal of his own medicine with a side dish of crow.
