You Won't Believe What James Comey Used His Private Email For
At least seven of those were considered so sensitive by the Justice Department that DOJ declined to make them public.
The New York Post's Marisa Schultz reports:
The former top G-man repeatedly claimed he only used his private account for “incidental” purposes and never for anything that was classified — and that appears to be true.
But Justice acknowledged in response to a Freedom of Information request that Comey and his chief of staff discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained by The Post.
The Cause of Action Institute, a conservative watchdog group, filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit for Comey’s Gmail correspondence involving his work for the bureau.
The Justice Department responded that there were an eye-popping 1,200 pages of messages for Comey and his chief of staff that met the criteria.
Using private email for official government business muddles transparency and endangers accountability.
It also runs counter to Comey's statements that his use of email never involved any sensitive matters.
