Inspector General Michael Horowitz is preparing a "damning report"on former FBI director James Comey's conduct and has referred him for possible prosecution under the classified information protection laws, the Hill's John Solomon reported Wednesday night. Unfortunately, Solomon is reporting that Department of Justice prosecutors under Attorney General William Barr have decided not to prosecute Comey for the alleged infractions.
Comey is not completely off the hook, however. He and others inside the Obama-era FBI and the DOJ still face legal jeopardy in other ongoing probes by the IG and Barr-appointed special prosecutor John Durham.
Those investigations are focused on the origins of the Russia investigation that included a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant targeting the Trump campaign at the end of the 2016 election, the source said.
"There are significant issues emerging with how the FISA was handled and other conduct in the investigation, and everyone involved remains under scrutiny," a second source said.
