DOJ investigating leaks on Russian document that influenced how Comey handled Clinton emails

Former FBI Director James Comey appears to be the subject of another leak investigation.

Federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C., are investigating a years-old leak to the media about a dubious Russian intelligence document that factored into Comey’s handling of the FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, according to a New York Times report on Thursday.

Two reports in the spring of 2017, one from the New York Times and the Washington Post, are under scrutiny by law enforcement officials. Prosecutors are looking into Daniel Richman, Comey’s friend and adviser, who leaked the FBI chief’s notes about his private conversations with President Trump in 2017 after Comey was fired.

The document, obtained by hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials and provided to the FBI, included what appeared to be an email between Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was the Democratic National Committee chairwoman at the time, and Leonard Benardo, an official with George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, in which the former suggested that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch would ensure Clinton would not be prosecuted for her use of a private email server to conduct government business.
