The DOJ Just Launched An Investigation Against James Comey For Interfering With Election

The U.S. Department Of Justice has launched an investigation against FBI director James Comey, following allegations that he did not properly follow procedure in his department’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s email server in the months leading up to the election.

On Thursday, the Department of Justice’s internal watchdog announced that it would be launching an official investigation into how its own department and the FBI and its director James Comey handled its probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, The Huffington Post reports.

At the request of “numerous Chairmen and ranking members of Congressional oversight committees, various organizations, and members of the public,” DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz said the investigation will look into the public comments Comey made about the FBI’s findings on July 5, when he called Clinton’s actions “extremely careless,” according to Politico.

The DOJ is also going to look into that letter Comey sent out to Congress just a few days before the election, explaining that the FBI would be reopening the investigation after finding new information on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. Comey ended up clearing Clinton for a second time just two days before the election.

Democrats and Clinton’s camp have blamed the timing of that letter for her election loss to Donald Trump, arguing that it reinvigorated his supporters and caused irrevocable damage to her campaign just eleven days before the election.

The investigation will focus on allegations that the DOJ and FBI did not follow their own set of policies and will look into any indication that employees made decisions regarding the investigation based on “improper considerations,” according to the statement.
