Washington (CNN)The Justice Department inspector general's office referred former FBI Director James Comey for potential prosecution over his handling of memos that the FBI later determined contained classified information, a person familiar with the matter confirmed Thursday.
But Justice Department prosecutors declined to prosecute Comey, in part because they didn't believe there was evidence to show Comey knew and intended to violate laws on handling classified information.
At issue were memos that Comey shared with a friend and attorney, Daniel Richman, who then shared the information with a New York Times reporter.
Two memos Comey shared contained information the FBI deemed as "confidential," the lowest classification level.
CNN reached out to attorneys for Comey. Richman declined comment. James Comey won't be prosecuted over handling of FBI memos, despite referral - CNNPolitics


ok, so does this mean Bill Barr is now a part of the "deep state" too? Didn't the DOJ get the memo that Durham was on the case and about to indict Comey, Obama, Hillary, and any Democrat that Trump might not like?

Evidently the #Cult45 is not upset with Barr in this instance.
:cool:
yeah , I saw Fox News trying to spin it into the standard grievance politics narrative . Comey and Hillary get away with things none of the rest of would . No mention of how this is Trump's DOJ. No tweet from Trump bashing Barr like he did Sessions either .
