Former FBI director James Comey is under investigation for his handling of classified information, according to a bombshell remark from Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
Specifically, investigators want to know about his handling of memos he penned about discussions and conversations with President Donald Trump.
The bit of information came to light during congressional testimony, during which Horowitz was asked by Sen. Chuck Grassley if Comey was being investigated for the memos — and Horowitz simply replied, “Yes.”
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."

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.
“Question number one, Mr. Horowitz, are you investigating the handling of his memo and does that include the classification issues, and should Mr. Comey expect a report when it’s complete?” Grassley asked.
“We received a referral on that from the FBI. We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete, consistent with the law and rules that are — a report that’s consistent and takes those into account,” Horowitz responded.
